Free Crochet Cotton throw Pattern- Beach Glass Throw

I love the texture and weight of a 100% crochet cotton throw. Growing up, my mom had a machine knit cotton blanket.  I loved that blanket and the memory of it has stuck with me all these years.  It is the texture, weight and feel of that blanket my mom had that I have tried to recreate in this design – and I love the result!

This blanket, although it is not overly large, has a great weight and cool, smooth feel to it.  A %100 cotton blanket has a great feel to it – one that cannot be replicated in a blanket made from another fibre.

The great thing about cotton is that it is hypoallergenic, it washes and dries well, it keeps its shape, is fairly robust and is relatively inexpensive and easy to come by.

For this project you can use any of your favourite worsted weight yarns, you will need about 2800 yards and I have used a 5.5 mm crochet hook.  The yarn I have selected is called “Robin’s Egg,” a Bernat Handicrafter cotton, and I selected it because it went so well with the Beach Glass colour of the Caron Cotton Cakes.  To go along with my blanket I designed a pillow (see below) – the free crochet pattern and video tutorial for which you will find here: Beach Glass Pillow – A Free Crochet Pattern.
