Crocheted Farmhouse Throw
Collaborating once again this month with a lovely group of Bloggers to bring you some new craft ideas. For the February Craft Destash we are challenged to create a project using only items currently found in our craft stash. We were to make something new with crafty supplies or re-make an item we’ve been holding on to for a while. For this challenge, hosted by Megan from C’mon Get Crafty, I decided to make this Crocheted Farmhouse Throw.
Crocheted Farmhouse Throw
This blanket was made as part of the crochet along from the Fiber Flux blog. If you would like more detailed directions or you prefer video, please stop over to Jennifer’s blog. Since I’m kind of slow when I crochet this took longer than the amount of time allotted for the actual crochet along. It is a great project to work on during cooler weather as you can have it on top of you while your’re working!
I did get to use up 5 skeins of yarn that I had purchased quite awhile ago. The only thing I had to buy was 1 extra skein (cost $3.50 with coupon) to make the throw the size I wanted. I used a total of 6 skeins of yarn all of which are bulky or super bulky.
size k crochet hook
2 skeins light blue or aqua yarn
2 skeins light tan yarn
1 skein dark tan yarn
1 skein dark blue or aqua yarn
Start by chaining a multiple of 6 + 1.
Then crochet 2 double crochet in the 4th chain from hook. After that you will skip 2. Then do a single crochet, then skip 2 then do 4 double crochet in same chain stitch. This pattern will repeat to make little “fans”. At the end of the rows you will chain 3 and turn.
For all of the following rows you will do 4 double crochets in the single crochet from the row before. Then crochet 1 single crochet in the middle space between the 4 double crochets. Keep repeating rows until you get the length you desire.
As I said, if you would like more detailed directions, please visit the Fiber Flux blog! This throw was very easy to crochet because of the repetitive pattern. And the good thing is you can make it any size you like.

The colors you chose for your crochet throw are very pretty together and it looks super cozy!
Pinned! I have been making blankets and I’m always looking to change up the patterns I’m using. Now I have even more time to work on some in the next few weeks.
Looks like we all have a lot of time on our hands now! Too bad it is due to unfortunate circumstances!
