A classic and timeless throw – the Crochet Granny Throw – is a free pattern on the blog!
Beginners as well as advanced at crochet can easily carry out this project, because of its simplicity, the granny square is accessible and is easily personalized by alternating colors and materials.
I did not hesitate long to create my throw! My first motivation was to use / recycle the stashes of yarns from my drawer bottoms. I simply bought a pack of ten balls of cream colored acrylic yarn for the join and off we go! With my 4mm hook I embarked on this beautiful project which may seem a little long but what a joy to see its stack of squares grow, grow as you go!
Ideal as throw of bed or sofa, this pretty blanket will find its place in your cozy interior!
I am very happy with the result which makes me think of a flower garden with its country colors! And above all it warms well! A useful and pleasant creation!
