This crochet throw is a perfect addition to your living space, offering both comfort and style. It’s a great project whether you’re a seasoned crocheter or a beginner looking to hone your skills.

Remember, practice is the path to perfection in crochet. Don’t worry if you make mistakes along the way. Each stitch is a step towards mastery!

Materials Needed

Before we dive into the instructions, let’s gather our tools and materials. For this project, you’ll need:

  • Caron One Pound yarn (100% Acrylic, Size 4 weight), with 2 skeins of Rose and 2 skeins of White.
  • A Size I 5.5 mm hook.
  • Scissors.
  • A tapestry needle.

The gauge is 12 sts and 10 rows = 4 inches, and the finished size of the throw will be approximately 42 x 52 inches.


Stitches and Pattern

The pattern primarily consists of two basic stitches, Single Crochet (SC) and Double Crochet (DC). Here’s a quick refresher:

  • Single Crochet (SC): Insert your hook, YO and pull up a loop, YO and pull through two loops on hook.
  • Double Crochet (DC): YO, insert your hook, YO and pull up a loop, YO and pull through two loops, YO and pull through remaining two loops.

Now, let’s move onto the pattern. You’ll begin by creating a foundation chain of 121 stitches. This pattern uses a combination of SC and DC stitches, alternating between the two. The pattern repeat is any odd number times 24 plus 1. The color changes in the pattern create the unique geometric design of the throw.

The detailed instructions for each row are available on the original tutorial website. The instructions provide a detailed, row-by-row breakdown of color changes and stitch patterns. Due to the length of the pattern, I’m unable to provide a complete walkthrough here. However, I can summarize the pattern’s structure.

The pattern consists of alternating blocks of color, creating a geometric pattern of squares and circles. You’ll start with a few rows of alternating SC and DC stitches, then move onto the more complex color changes to form the pattern. The stitch patterns repeat, creating a symmetrical design.
