To celebrate fall this year I crocheted up this simple Pittsburgh Crochet blanket to keep us warm while we all pile up on the couch together to watch the Black and Gold! Read on down for the full, FREE black and gold crochet pattern!
It’s almost that time of year again full of football, leaf piles, and everything pumpkin. So the inspiration for this easy crochet blanket came at the perfect time!
The Pittsburgh throw blanket crochet pattern is extremely simple (great for beginners!) and uses only Half Double Crochets which makes for a fast project! I used Charisma yarn from Michaels stores, but any bulky 5 yarn would work!
If you are a beginner looking for a quick project then this is the crochet pattern for you! Promise! 🙂 It is one of the best beginner crochet blankets you can find!
