The Liza Throw – Crochet Pattern

I posted a preview of this throw on social media yesterday and mentioned that I wasn’t sure what to name it.  This is a common dilemma for me.  I come up with a pattern and can’t wait to share it – but then I get stuck on what heck I should call it!  I received some great suggestions, and then my Aunt Liza kiddingly said that I should name it after her – and I thought great idea!  And that is my story of how this cozy braided throw was named the Liza Throw.

I have to say, this throw is my favourite blanket creation to date!  I seriously cannot get over how snuggly it turned out!  It makes me want to grab a good book,  wrap myself up, and hide from the rest of the world and the cold winter weather outside.


I have written out and posted the free pattern for this throw below on this page.
