Crochet Fireside Throw Blanket

Crochet Fireside Throw Blanket
Crochet Fireside Throw Blanket

"This crochet fireside throw blanket will look so beautiful this fall. The colors remind me of an autumn sunset or a warm fire burning in the fireplace. I love to use crochet items that are useful to help bring the colors of the season into my home decor. Have you ever stood in the yarn store or in your yarn stash and let your yarn tell you what your next project will be? I do that often. Sometimes, I will have a project that I plan on doing; look through my yarn stash, and end up making something completely different. Seems crazy, right? At times, when digging through the yarn, a color combination will jump out at me and gives me inspiration. This blanket is made using the block stitch that has been slightly modified. In the past, when I have crocheted the block stitch, alternating the yarn colors every other row left a ton of yarn ends to be weaved in. Therefore, while I love the look of the block stitch, the sewing in of the yarn ends made me veer away from this beautiful stitch. Carry the Yarn up the Side of the Blanket! Yup, no more weaving in tons of yarn with each color change. It was not easy to figure out."

NotesCarry the Yarn up the Side of the Blanket!

For the second corner complete 2 sets of 3 DC, continue to do the 3 DC in each CH 2 SP. In the third corner complete 2 sets of 3 DC, continue up the last side completing 3 DC in each of the off white rows. In the fourth corner – which is the one you started in; end with 3 DC and a SL ST into the top ST of the first CH 3. Bring the yarn through the last loop to secure.
