This Harvest Fields Throw is a gorgeous textured marvel! Worked in rounds and measuring approx. 54” wide, it is the perfect lapghan size and looks beautiful draped over a chair or couch. If worked in a lighter weight yarn, this would also make a beautiful baby blanket for a sweet little girl.
This Little Couch Potato Siesta Blanket was crocheted over the course of one weekend (at a relaxed pace), with 3 cakes of Pool Party Bernat Blanket Stripes yarn. The yarn was easy to work with and except for the final row of the project I let the colors come out of the yarn cake as they were dyed. The last row I removed a small section in the dark blue in order to use the next color in the ball to complete the final 2 rows in the same color. Two separate colors over the final 2 rows did not fit with the flow of the rest of the blanket. So if you end up in a similar place after you reach row 50 consider cutting out a small section and allowing the next section to take it's place to make the blanket color flow a bit more smoothly. This was a very relaxed and simple project to crochet. I love the striped effect created by the yarn and not having to sew in a bunch of yarn ends! Great for gifts, baby showers, children, floor blankets and cuddle time! Drew's finished blanket measures 40 inches wide and 36 inches long. The stitch multiple is 2+1 so you can create this to any size you wish easily.
The Denim and Ivory Lapghan measures 46'W x 48'H. It would make a great wheelchair afghan, a blanket for when you're curled up on the couch or recliner. It would also make a beautiful baby or toddler blanket. You can customize it to any size. All you need to do is have a starting chain with a multiple of 4 - 2. This stitch pattern would make a gorgeous bedspread too! Not only that, the only stitches you need to know are single crochet and double crochet. It's an easy five row repeat that you can quickly memorize.
"The Harvest Throw Crochet Pattern is a super easy and cozy blanket to make! It is a perfect crochet pattern for the absolute beginner. You will love to curl up under this blanket on a cool evening. This blanket is crocheted using one of my favourite crochet stitches called the moss stitch. The moss stitch is a stitch pattern made up of single crochet and chain stitches. This blanket is worked as one piece. The fringe at either end is an optional embellishment. The pattern includes both a written and video tutorial."
For the Diagonal Ripple Lapghan, I modified the Diagonal Chevrons Lapghan pattern to create a different chevron or ripple look. Many crocheters love working the classic crochet ripple pattern in BLO to create a neat ridge effect so I gave it a whirl when working on the bias. If you love to work crochet blankets from corner-to-corner (also known as working on-the-bias) and you love crochet chevrons, then you will really enjoy this lapghan pattern.
Using the classic chevron pattern, I designed this solid color lapghan that you can work up quickly and keep your lap warm when working at a desk or sitting in your favorite chair. It is also a wonderful pattern to work for someone who is in a wheelchair and doesn't need the full size afghan. I decided to use the peephole chevron stitch for this pattern because I wanted something with more drape and that felt a little more open. Since I was using one color and a super soft yarn, I wanted to have those peepholes in the pattern to give it a bit of interest.
