I chose to take on a larger project and create a free pattern for a crochet throw. I love making blankets and throws but honestly, I get bored quick so it had to be something that would build fast. I need to see progress or my projects often go half finished before I move on to something new! So, I found this gorgeous bulky yarn in two colours that I love, and got to work on this thick, snuggly throw. You could use just one colour to keep things simple, or two like I have.
I have written out and posted the free pattern for this throw below on this page. You can also purchase the ad free instant download PDF file for easy printing and reading for $4 USD.
