Blankets and Throws

Afternoon Tea Crochet Throw Pattern

You’re going to love the airy feeling of the Afternoon Tea Crochet Throw!

The Afternoon Tea Crochet Throw is named after the colour of the yarn that I used in the photos, but I believe that it is very fitting for this particular blanket.  This blanket features an airy chevron design.  Rows of open work are interspaced between more solid rows.

The result is a lighter in weight crochet throw that would be great to throw over yourself any time of the year.

Caron Big Cakes or any Worsted Weight Yarn:

This blanket has been designed using the Caron Big Cakes by Yarnspirations.  You, of course, may substitute this yarn for any worsted weight yarn.  The Caron Big cakes are generous in their size at just over 600 yards per cake, and are a soft 100% acrylic yarn.  You will only need three cakes for this blanket.

My Crochet Hook:

For this design I used a 6 mm Wooden Streamline Hook in Ebony by Furls Crochet.
