A Colorful Crochet Throw
Hook up this cheery throw and add a little bit of modern retro flair to your favorite space!
You will learn how to crochet an eight-petal flower, and add granny-style rounds that transform the motif into a square shape. Once complete, these squares can be used anywhere that you would normally use a granny square – blankets, table toppers, scarves, and more!
In this project, you’ll combine 48 of the flower-granny hybrids to create a lap-sized blanket perfect for those chilly evenings by the fire. You’ll learn a nifty border technique, too, that starts off like a traditional granny border, but ends with pretty scallops that echo the shape of the flower petals.
Follow the pattern exactly as written to get a creamy white throw with bright red flowers and aqua centers (a very vintage combination), or make it a stashbuster project and use up all of the reds, aquas, and greens in your collection like I did in the sample!
