Since it is so cold in PA at winter time I knew that when designing the Jane Throw Blanket I
needed wanted to use Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick (WET&Q). I love using this yarn for most of my crochet blankets and throws!
I went with the colorway Fossil because it is just simply gorgeous! This bulky yarn has a beautiful blend of neutrals and a hint of silver throughout it making for a beautiful color. It really is the perfect colorway to use because it can easily fit in with most any decor and the bulky yarn creates a chunky crochet throw!
To start the Jane Throw you will just need to know how to chain and single crochet! Yep! That’t it! If you are new to crocheting this would be the perfect project to try. This pattern is a combination of single crocheting and chaining 1 which is called the sand stitch. I created a post about the sand stitch for those who would like a tutorial and or even a refresher on this beauty of a stitch. “Click Here” to find the sand stitch tutorial.
Also I wanted to add that Lion Brand Yarn has generously made this into a crochet kit that includes the PDF version of the pattern and all the yarn needed! “Click Here” to purchase!
I wrote this blanket in a throw size blanket but it can easily be adjusted to be made in any size by using an even starting chain number. Just imagine this design as a little crochet baby throw blanket! Ready to get started? Read on down to find the full tutorial and Happy Crocheting! A full video tutorial can be found below!
