One Ball Mini Throw

By:

10 Comments

If you have one ball of extra yarn lying around your house (and who doesn't?!), then you can make this One Ball Mini Throw. It's a quick and easy crochet afghan pattern that you can make in just an evening using Red Heart Comfy Chunky yarn. Depending on the color yarn you select, this crocheted afghan can be made for a boy or a girl. It could even be made for a newborn baby if you are looking for a sentimental homemade gift idea for an upcoming baby shower.

I'm glad to see there was a correction but where I keep getting off is on Row 3. It says to sc in next 3 trc, sk next trc,(but there are 2 trc that it skips). Ive reworked this line twice to make sure its not just me....

I too have tried several times to make it work unsuccessfuly. It is so pretty and just right for our nursing home ministry at church. Please take a look and see if perhaps there is a typo. Thank you for posting it.

I cannot find Red Heart Comfort Chunky yarn. Is there a substitute? Red Heart says you can find it in retailers in Canada or online. I am in USA.

I have tried to start this several times yesterday and can't seem to get it going right. Not sure if count is wrong or is it me. Think it is a beautiful pattern but it's not making sense to me. Going to try again
