Clover --

The pattern does not call for casting on 300 stitches (75 sts x 4 different colors). The pattern calls for casting on 75 stitches doing each cast-on with all four strands of yarn. This will recreate a superbulky yarn worked on presumably pretty large needles -- maybe US35 or US50 -- to work up very quickly.

Depending upon the yarns and colors used, this should make a striking throw.

I would caution that some of the best ones I have seen using this technique of multiple strands of yarn at one time were also among the priciest because of the yarns used.
