Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I made a blanket with scraps and it turned out great! I like this pattern because it uses the 3 dc clusters which add a nice touch. you just have to make sure you keep your yarn uniform. If you use worsted in one row and want to use fine yarn in the next row, make use you double it to keep the weights uniform and keep the proper gauge. I like the sequence of the color yarns in the pattern shown as well. When they have those yarn outlet sales, that is the time to buy new yarn for this project and I will keep that in mind. Thank you for the pattern. There is nothing like a warm hand knit blanket on a cold night.

I didn't see a "Materials" list. What yarn did she use?? I would like to make THIS EXACT Afghan. Is there a supplies list for it?? I just LOVE the yarn she used!! Thanx Chris

Hi purplefox, To ask the designer about her project, I would leave a comment on her blog on or the project itself so that she can see it and answer. :) Thanks! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

I love the look of this Northern Lights Granny Throw. I don't think mine would look anything like what is pictured unless I go buy yarn in the colors used. If I used my scraps, I would have so many colors in one row and none would look the same. I think this pattern is well written, even if it is her first time writing a pattern. It's easy to understand and should come out will. I'm thinking of making a lap aghan with my scraps using her pattern. Rainbow of colors is what mine would look like. LOL Thank you for sharing this free crochet pattern.

A great pattern and beautiful colors that is going to be great for our group who meet once a month to crochet knee blankets and wraps for a local chronic care facility. The brightness of the colors is definitely going to bring smiles which is always lovely to see and because the pattern is easy it means that it will crochet up quickly too. Perfect, thank you!

Im always on the lookout for patterns that will allow me to use up my yarn stash. I am so glad to find this very pretty and colorful throw. I only wish that my leftover yarn sections were as colorful as yours because I dont think mine will make such a lovely throw as this.

So cute,will make this
