Oh my word I am so in love with this chunky throw its ridiculous! If you decide to make one for yourself you WILL NOT be disappointed. It is perfect for fall and winter time. The size is big enough for two adults to cozy under. If you’ve got kiddos like me then there’s plenty of room for snuggling while watching your friday night movie!
I posted a while back the crochet knit stitch when I was making a cowl. I knew I was going to want a throw blanket that could be worked up really quickly. However I didn’t want giant holes in my work. I felt like with this yarn and the crochet knit stitch I would have the perfect combo in a blanket.
I discovered the yarn I used while browsing in a local store. They were limited in the number they carried so when I went on amazon to look I discovered there are a ton of color options!
ahem….a few people might get these as a Christmas gift with all these options!
The color I chose was Pearl. (GET THE YARN HERE!)
This stuff is so soft its like wrapping up in a cloud. That is, if one could actually wrap themselves in a cloud.
If you notice in the photo above I had originally started with a different size needle. I started working in the yarn and felt like the stitches weren’t as big as I was wanting them to be.
I went to my hook stash and pulled out my size Q hook. (GET THE SAME HOOK HERE!)
When I began working again I knew this was the perfect size! The texture of the yarn and the stitch are a lot easier to see when working with this size hook. Trust me!
Here are some photos as I began working…
Over the course of 3 days I was able to complete this entire piece. In total it was 4hrs. Not too bad for something so large!
Down below you will find the pattern. It’s very easy and a repeat of 2 rows. You can go as small or as large as you would like. If you want to duplicate the same one I made then the pattern will help you achieve this!
CH – 100 + 2
R1 – HDC in 4th CH from the hook. Continue with HDC in all the way across. CH 2, Turn.
R2 – HDC in front loop all the way across. CH 2, turn. (CHECKOUT THIS POST FOR INSTRUCTIONS ON THIS ST)
R3 – HDC in the back loop all the way across. CH 2, turn.
Repeat rows 2 & 3 until you reach your desired width. I just used 6 skeins of yarn and did a SL ST on the last row.
Once you are done with your rows you can sewn in all the tails and spots where you connected the skeins.
Then make yourself a cup of coffee and cozy up with your new throw!
If you make this beauty for yourself let me know! Share a photo too!
You can also tag me on Instagram with your pics. I know it would be fun to see what you guys come up with!
I hope you enjoy making this pattern as much as I did.
