The There You Go Throw is a two tone join as you go blanket made of 6-inch squares - graphic, eye-catching, and so much fun to crochet! Fans of My Big Fat Greek Wedding might understand the inspiration for the name! When I was trying to come up with a name (always the hardest part!), I was talking to some friends about how it reminded me so much of Greek graphic patterns - especially the colors! - and the movie came up. My friend Terri loves it as much as I do, and we decided to quote the character Gus, who loves to explain how things are Greek (even things that aren’t), and always ends it with ”…there you go!” Much like some of Gus’s explanations, this blanket isn’t Greek, but it is join as you go (aka quick to crochet), based on the basic granny square, and ready to make in any size desired for the perfect gift or personal pick-me-up - so There You Go!

Hug a Friend Square
Recently, many of my fellow Red Heart Joy Creators got together to make a beautiful afghan for our friend Allison from Red Heart Yarn. Each of us designed a 12" square and then we sent them off to a team member to join them. This lovely afghan was then given to Allison for a fun wedding gift! I love being a part of the Red Heart Yarns Joy Creators. One reason is because we all love to crochet, and this was one of our first group activities. The Hug a Friend Square is a fun and whimsical 12" square made using Chic Sheep Yarn in 3 colors. I hope you enjoy making it too, because this was one of my favorite blocks in my free pattern library.
