The Harvest Throw Crochet Pattern is a super easy and cozy blanket to make! It is a perfect crochet pattern for the absolute beginner. You will love to curl up under this blanket on a cool evening.

This blanket is crocheted using one of my favourite crochet stitches called the moss stitch. The moss stitch is a stitch pattern made up of single crochet and chain stitches.

The end result of this combination of stitches is a design that looks almost as though it is woven.

Lovely Layers Caron Cakes

This pattern is worked using a bulky weight yarn called Caron Lovely Layers Swirl Cakes by Yarnspirations. These cakes can be found at Michael’s Craft Stores and are an acrylic wool blend of fibre.

You can substitute for another yarn, just look for the bulky weight symbol on the yarn sleeve.

A Crochet Pattern for the Absolute Beginner

This crochet pattern has been designed with the absolute beginner in mind. It is a very simple crochet pattern, worked all in one piece with out a complicated edging.

After working the body of the blanket, a simple fringe is added to the end. This fringe is optional, and the blanket looks great without!
