Calypso Waves Throw will measure approximately 59" (width) across by as long as you want it. 1 ball of Bernat Mosaic Yarn will take you about 4" of height. 


Materials:

Size K Crochet Hook or 6.5 MM

 

Yarn:

1 Ball = 4" in height - Bernat Mosaic Yarn 100 g or 3.5 oz balls. Calypso is the colour of this yarn.

Decide your length in inches and divide by 4. This will give you the amount of balls you need. Afghan design is 59" across. The yarn changes colour on its own so you don't need to buy all the colours you see. It has a slow colour transition which makes it very desirable and artistic looking.
