Happy Holidays Throw

Happy Holidays Throw

In my mind, the best festive looks come from those that sparkle. This Happy Holidays Throw crochet pattern has that bit of shine to it to add brightness and color to any room. While you can make it with any colors you like, these Celebration yarn used is fun and exciting. If you wanted to make something resembled homemade Christmas decor rather than just a plain crochet blanket pattern, then think about using some other shades of red and green instead of silver and gold. Either way, you'll have a fun and festive blanket accent for your home this holiday season.

Since this is a Red Heart project, I went to the website to see if I could locate a download. Unfortunately, it doesnt appear to be on the website any longer (although several other projects by this designer are still there), so if you want to work this throw, youll have to clip and paste. This is one of my favorites since its so bright and cheery!

Tedious to make but it's worth it. Another very elegant afghan project. Another work of art!
