This easy crochet throw is the perfect project to pick if you want to have a weekend crochet marathon. This design involves repeats along with some simple stitches to make for an easy quick and easy crochet throw! After your weekend crochetathon you will have a comfy and pretty stylish looking throw to snuggle up in! If you are ready to get started scroll on down to find the easy crochet throw blanket pattern!
For this throw I went with a self striping neutral yarn mostly because I feel in love the with the colorway Linen Stripe from Red Hearts Soft Essentials line last time I was shopping. This yarn was hard to find for sure and took me longer than I wanted to finish it because I didn’t buy enough the first time. So remember ladies and gentleman buy at least 4 skeins if you want to make this blanket in the size I have listed below.
This easy throw pattern only uses 2 easy stitches the single crochet (sc) and double crochet (dc). If you are a beginner to crochet this would be a good blanket to start with if you want something a bit challenging. It is not overly hard but will challenge you if you are new which is always a good thing in my book. Ready to get started on this fast crochet throw? Yay! I hope you like it!
