Giant Granny Square Throw

I made this beautiful throw as a gift for my son and his girlfriend. I love the geometric shapes and jewel toned colors which give it vibrancy. With the mix of colors the throw can match any decor, whether you use it on your bed for extra warmth or in the family room for cuddling on the couch. The throw is an easy pattern to make and will brighten up any room in your home. The Bernat premium yarn is very soft and washes beautifully. I hope you enjoy making it!Giant Granny Square Throw

Use this free crochet blanket pattern to make a fun couch blanket for everyone in the family to enjoy!

From the blogger: "Sofa Sweet Sofa is a cozy crochet sofa throw that is quick to make and oh-so luxurious to use. This blanket is great to nap under, and it can also be shared. The yarn is soft and fluffy, thus making the throw warm and comfy. The giant shells give it a fun look and also make it quick to crochet. In addition, it’s perfect for cuddling under with Amir the Elephant, whom I shared with you a few weeks ago!"

Granny Hexagon Afghan

Instead of the typical granny square afghan pattern, check out this Granny Hexagon Afghan, which uses hexagons instead of crochet granny squares. The fun shapes and patterns create an eye-catching design that will brighten up your home. Use this crochet afghan as a throw on your couch or for the warmth you desire in the winter around the fire. Keep it laying around during the spring months, too, since the hexagons create a floral look that is a reminder of the new life in springtime. This crochet granny square afghan would look stunning in any color scheme you picked. Granny Hexagon Afghan

Little Couch Potato Siesta Blanket


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.

Chic Colorful Granny Square Throw

This Chic Colorful Granny Square Throw has a modern look and it was so much fun to make. Full directions for the pattern, plus a video tutorial on how to complete the invisible join for a granny square. This throw would be nice for a baby too. I love the modern look so much, that it is on display as part of my home decor. This is an easy way to let the crochet pattern highlight the granny squares rather than the method used for joining. It takes a bit of time, but the end result looks very nice.Video tutorials on the invisible join, how to crochet a granny square, and how to change colors in a granny square.Chic Colorful Granny Square Throw
