I decided 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. 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.
Here is what you will need to make this throw:
46″ Wide X 52″ Long
This pattern uses the Dutchess Lace Stitch. You can find a tutorial for this stitch at: newstitchaday.com
With Colour A, Chain 112.
Row 1: [2 DC, 3 CH, 1 Slip Stitch] in 4th ch from hook, *skip next 2 ch, [2 DC, 3 CH, 1 Slip Stitch] in next ch; repeat from * to end of row, turn.
Row 2: Ch 3, *[2 DC, 3 CH, 1 Slip Stitch] in next ch3 space; repeat from * across, ending in 1 DC in top of turning chain, turn.
Row 3: Ch 3, *working in each chain of the ch3 of previous row, 1 DC in first ch, 1 DC in 2nd ch, CH 3, 1 Slip Stitch in 3rd ch; repeat from * across, ending with 1 DC in top of the turning ch, turn.
Switch to Colour B at the end of row 3.
Repeat rows 2 and 3 three times and then switch back to colour A.
Repeat rows 2 and 3 three times and then switch back to colour B.
Continue this pattern until your work measures over 4 feet (or as long as you desire). Finish the pattern by working the last three rows in colour A to mirror the first three rows. Fasten off and weave in all loose ends.
