Pansy Throw

By: Red Heart Yarns

Pansy ThrowThis Pansy Throw is the perfect crochet afghan pattern to make for spring. Keep it on your sofa or take it to the park with you. It's an intermediate crochet pattern to complete using Red Heart yarn. This charming throw will make an excellent gift for Mother's Day. The afghan itself is crocheted first, then the leaves and pansies are added last.

MATERIALS:
RED HEART® Super Saver®:
5 skeins 311 White A; 4 skeins 330 Linen B; 2 skeins 633 Dark Sage C; 1 skein 356 Amethyst D; 2 skeins 358 Lavender E; and 1 skein 320 Cornmeal F
Susan Bates® Crochet Hook: 6mm [US J-1]
Yarn needle

GAUGE:
Hexagon measures 9½” (24cm) across; 10½” (26.7cm) from point to point.

CHECK YOUR GAUGE.
Use any size hook to obtain the gauge.

Throw measures 55½” x 76” (141 x 193 cm)

NOTE:  Hexagons are made first, then leaves, then pansies. Leaves are sewn on top of hexagons, pansies are sewn on top of leaves, and then hexagons are sewn together.

To Change Color in Dc: Work last dc before color change until there are 2 loops left on the hook, drop color in use, with new color yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook. Continue with the new color. Carry other color at back of work until needed, catching strands into back as sts are worked.

There were no finished measurements for this pansy throw project. It appears to be a little larger than most throws/afghans when you look at it in the picture provided. I like the multiple layers that are joined to create this masterpiece. And pansies happen to be one of my favorite flowers.

How many petals are in "This" pansy?

Hi ladyjgreeneyes, It looks like each individual pansy has 6 petals, but I would suggest following the directions for 1 as stated above to determine for sure. Thanks! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

I just started this throw, but with I Love This Yarn instead of Red Heart. Has anyone finished it? If so, how did you join the hexagon's?

This afghan is beautiful. It will be one of my next crochet projects! :-)
