One Ball Mini Throw

By:

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.
