Color Block Throw – Free Crochet Blanket Pattern

Crochet Patterns/ Free Patterns

I hope you enjoy making this cozy color blocked throw as much as I did! This is one of those patterns that once you nail the first few rows, you can completely zone out – and before you know it, you have made huge progress. The stitch that I used is a simple alternating front and back post double crochet, which creates a really neat texture and doesn’t require much thought. I used Painbox Yarns Simply Chunky for a couple of reasons. First, they have so many colors to choose from, so I was able to get the exact look I had in mind. Also, throws/afghans can be expensive to make with all of the yarn required, hence I was really attracted by the low price of this yarn. And for an added bonus, it is washable and can also go in the dryer!

Now that it’s all done, I am so happy with how this blanket turned out. It will look great in our living room and I can’t wait to snuggle up under it with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book.

I have written out and posted the free pattern for this throw below on this page.  However, you can also purchase the PDF file for easy printing and reading (and to support me to be able to continue to post patterns on this blog).  If you’d like to purchase the PDF file, click the “Purchase PDF File” button below.
