The Me-Time Crochet Throw

Since I started crocheting, I have only made a few things for myself. Most things are either for my children or gifts to family members. So, when I pointed this out to my husband while shopping for yarn at Hobby Lobby, he told me that I had to make something just for me.

Since there was 30% off all yarn at Hobby Lobby, I decided that it was the time to buy all that yarn! I got enough to make myself at least 3 big things. This is the first: The Me-Time Crochet Throw.

Originally, I wanted this to be a blanket sweater, but I made it too wide. That was easy to fix, since a blanket sweater is basically a blanket with certain parts sewed together to make seams. So instead of frogging the whole thing (ribbit, ribbit), I decided to just keep going. And I love the result!

This throw is perfect for keeping me warm while I crochet. (Please tell me I’m not the only one who is cold basically all the time!) I have a feeling that most, if not all of my future projects will be made while I’m snuggled up in this super soft and lightweight throw.

I used Hobby Lobby’s Sweet Delights Baby Bee yarn in Grape Jelly and Flannel Marled. They look gorgeous together and it makes it nice and soft while still being lightweight. Just perfect for Springtime!

Materials:

5 skeins DK weight yarn (I used Hobby Lobby’s Sweet Delights Baby Bee: 2 skeins of Grape Jelly and 3 skeins of Flannel Marled)

4 mm (G) crochet hook (I like these hooks)

Yarn needle for sewing in ends

For detailed recommendations, visit my Recommendations Page.

Stitches:

ch – chain

hbdc – herringbone double crochet (yarn over, insert hook into stitch, pull through stitch [3 loops on hook], yarn over, pull through 2 loops [2 loops on hook], yarn over, pull through 1 loop [2 loops on hook], yarn over, pull through last 2 loops.)

sl st – slip stitch

Gauge & Size:

8 hbdc x 4 rows = 2 inch square

Total size: 42 inches wide x 46 inches long

Pattern Notes:

  • Blanket has stripes at the top and bottom and is solid in the middle.
  • Ch 2 at the beginning of each row is a turning chain and does not count as a stitch. The herringbone double crochet will cause a slant for each stitch, so the chain 2 will not cause a bumpy edge.
  • Cut a tail for the previous colored yarn whenever making a color change. You’ll sew in all ends at the end.
  • There will be a total of 170 stitches in each row. There will be no increases or decreases.
