The Summer Breeze Throw crochet pattern is a light weight throw. It is quick to work and does not use as much yarn as other blankets.
I am loving the weight and texture in this crochet blanket! This crochet blanket is designed using a block stitch. This stitch is an easy two row repeat.

The block stitch has a similar feel to a granny square. It is made up of single crochet, chain stitches and double crochet stitches.
The Summer Breeze Throw crochet pattern is worked from the centre out and it is square in shape. Because it is worked from the centre out, the size of this blanket it easy to adjust.
For my blanket I used just four Caron Cotton Cakes. The Caron Cotton cakes are a Michaels Store exclusive. If you don’t have access to the Caron Cotton Cakes, you may substitute this yarn for another yarn that is also a medium/worsted weight.
Along with the Caron Cotton Cakes, I used a 5 mm crochet hook. You will see me using an Ebony Wooden Streamline Hook by Furls Crochet in my Video Tutorial linked below.
