This is a large throw/afghan that is made using the multi-sequence color pooling technique. Then a beautiful solid color border is added to really frame the beautiful argyle look of the throw. I love the soft shades of this super saver colorway combined with the matching solids. Once you get the hang of pooling and set up the number of color sequence repeats you want for the throw this blanket works up rather quickly. Choose any variegated pooling yarn and a coordinating solid and make a throw for yourself.
If you've ever wanted to try color pooling but couldn't find the right crochet pattern, then the Ice Waves Argyle Crochet Blanket just might be your answer.

"This simple rib crochet blanket border is a great addition to any blanket. It is a very traditional looking border and can be worked on any blanket. Plus, it is an easy one-row repeat pattern. For this blanket, you will simply need an even stitch count around the entire blanket. Ideally, you should already have an even stitch count. Your top and bottom row should have matching stitch counts, your sides rows should have matching stitch counts and you will have four corners. Overall the stitch count should be even. But do not worry, I will show you in the video how to correct the stitch count if it is off for some reason."
"This crochet pattern is for a basic, chunky, beautifully textured corner to corner afghan. Worked in two strands of worsted weight yarn (or one strand of chunky weight yarn), this cozy afghan works up fairly quickly. My afghan is worked in a solid color, but you could use some Caron Cakes yarn (or similar) for an easy, colorful afghan, or change colors as you see fit. For my blanket, I used about 8.33 (1/3) Skeins of Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn in the Ivory colorway (two strands held together). In it's place, you could use one strand of chunky/bulky (#5) yarn. Take a gauge. If you don't mind a slight difference in measurements, gauge isn't essential. You could even go up a hook size, and use super bulky yarn for a larger blanket. This afghan took me just over 11 hours to work up."
