Cottage Vibes Crochet Throw Pattern


This throw was inspired by long, lazy, rainy weekends (or snowy if you live near me!) . We’ve had quite a few of these over the past month or so, which afforded me plenty of time to sit with and complete this project.

What I loved about making the Cottage Vibes throw was the simplicity of the stitch pattern that I came up with. Once you get the hang of the extended double crochet (which is pretty much a slightly taller double crochet), this pattern is easy peasy! Your work will fly off your hook and there’s no guessing where to pick up where you left off.

Once again, I used Paintbox Yarns, this time I opted for the Simply Aran yarn since I didn’t want to blanket to be too heavy with this denser stitch. I’m in love with how the end result and I have a feeling this throw will be draped over our sofa all spring and summer long.

  1. Loved the look of your blanket using EDC stitch so much I got busy immediately making samples with a variety of yarn weights and hooks. I’m an experienced crocheter of over 50 years, but I think I must be doing something wrong because my samples were a hot mess. The pattern is easy enough, but my stitches were not lining up nice and even like your blanket in the photo. After ripping one sample out several times and studying your photo, I decided to line up the SC & the EDC with the same stitch on the row below. Viola !!! My samples now look exactly like your blanket ! Every row after Row 3 was a mess until I lined up the stitches.

    Would appreciate it if you could give some guidance on what I might be missing.

    As I do most of my crochet work for charity, this pattern will be a go-to because it is so tactile, has so many color combination possibilities and is not a yarn hog like other bobble patterns I have used in the past.

    1. I’m not sure I really understand the question, but if you are working a SC in each EDC and and EDC in each SC, then it will look just like the blanket in the photo.

  2. Hi, I am wondering how I can make this wider than 36 inches. What is the starting stitch count? ie. “Stitch Multiple for gauge swatch = An odd number of sts, plus 3 for the foundation chain.” What is this patterns?!! Thanks

  3. This is a great pattern and seems like an easy stitch to pick up . I am going to be starting a blanket for a wonderful couple in my church and this looks like it might be a great fit. How big is yours? As in inches. So I will know how many to do , the male of the couple is 6’4

    1. Hi Cecilia! This blanket should measure 37” wide X 62” long. I would suggest adding a few inches width and length for a larger person πŸ™‚
