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.
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.
