Lavender Throw – A Free Crochet Pattern

You will love the woven texture of this lavender throw! This throw is worked in one piece, working with six balls of yarn at one time.

I love lavender.  It’s one of my favourite flowers.  It can be found in a variety of colours from whites and pinks to purples.  I love the scent.  And each year I find myself watching the lavender bushes that run along our property for the first sign of spring buds.  Two of the bushes bloom early, while the other a few weeks later, which means I am blessed by the sight and scent for weeks.  I can’t wait!

In selecting the colours for this throw, I used these lavender bushes as my inspiration.  The Lavender Throw is worked (as one piece) in blocks of differing shade of purple, which are further accented by a fisherman’s white.  It is made with a worsted weight yarn, a great weight for the changing seasons.

As mentioned above, you will love the woven texture of this lavender throw! It is worked in one piece, working with six balls of yarn at one time.  It takes a little time to get the hang of working and keeping the balls from tangling, but you will soon work out a system that works best for you.  I work with the balls laid out in front of me, and then rotate them as my work progresses.

It is constructed with the moss stitch, a series of single crochet and chain stitches.  The bold blocks of colour make for endless colour combinations.

The pattern is written out in full below, but if you would like to add this pattern to your library, or purchase a convenient PDF, you may do so from either my Ravelry or Etsy Shop linked below:

  1. I have searched and searched for the written directions to one tough scrubbie. Where is it. I am exhausted.

  2. Hi! I just bought the pattern from Ralvery. I was wondering what the multiples are if I wanted to make it bigger? I am wanting to make this in shades of blue for my son who is 6’9″.

    1. Hello Angela, Thank you for buying the pattern! To change the size simply work an even number of stitches for your starting chain.

  4. Hi! So I am working this blanket right now and I am realizing the last square is bigger than the others…I am clearly doing something wrong and I was wondering what it could be? Im a newby looking for advice..thanks in advance!

  5. Hello. This is a beautiful blanket. I seen you had 16 things of yarn total. Did you have to get more yarn? Or did the yarn total of 16 make the whole blanket? I want to make sure before I start doing this blanket.

    1. Hi, yes I used a total of 16 balls of the Vanna’s Choice to make the whole blanket including the fringe.
