THE YARN That’s perfect for this throw
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. You could even use this yarn to make my Willow Throw Blanket too which is another chunkier throw that is perfect for winter time!
NEUTRALS GO WITH EVERYTHING!
I went with the color way Fossil because it is just simply gorgeous! This yarn has a pretty blend of neutrals and a hint of silver throughout making for a beautiful color. It really is the perfect color way to use because it can easily fit in with most any decor. 🙂 Not to mention the bulky yarn creates a pretty cozy chunky crochet throw which is perfect for snuggling!
This throw USES JUST A BASIC Crochet STITCH
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.
