Hi Friends!

As you may or may not know, I had our second little guy at the beginning of August 2019! So what that meant for Life and Yarn is that I was not doing as much designing as I normally would and spending more time working on some selfish projects! However, as much as I tried to stay away from designing, it’s just not in my nature! So, that’s where this post comes in! This is my informal write up of this Free Crochet Throw Pattern. This is one of my many projects I have going as selfish makes to use up some of my yarn stash! Think of this Free Crochet Throw Pattern as more of a recipe than a pattern! Have some fun with it and adjust it however you would like!

4.50 mm Crochet Hook
(Clover and Furls are my favorites!)
Yarn Needle
#4 Weight Cotton – I used Bernat Salt and Pepper 5 Skeins, 573 yards each


14 sts x 8 rows in hdc is 4″x4″.



50″ x  58″ from a total of 55 rounds. Please note, pattern is written so you may go smaller or larger. You may do as many or as little rounds as you would like!

Before you begin…

Remember this is meant to be more of a recipe than a pattern. Get creative! Do some color work! Add some other fun stitches! Double the size! Go up a hook for a looser material! Whatever you want but enjoy getting creative!


Round 1
Fdc 15, ch 3, 3 dc in base of last Fdc, ch 3, dc in same space, dc across in each next dc (14 sts, 15 total on side), ch 3, 3 dc in same space as last dc, ch 3, sl st to 1st dc.

Round 2
Ch 2, dc across, *2 dc in ch-3, ch 3, 2 dc in ch-3, dc in each dc. Repeat from * for remaining sides until you reach the first side and then dc in remaining dc sts, sl st to first dc.

Round 3 and on.

Repeat Round 2, each round will increase by 16 sts.

For my decorative rounds, I alternated *1 dc, ch 1 or *1 PS, ch 1 around.

I also added 3 rounds of a solid grey yarn i had to finish off when I knew I was running out of my Bernat Salt and Pepper cotton!

  1. I like the look of this blanket but I don’t understand the pattern at all. I am going to try anyhow and see if I can figure it out. Right now my brain is just not wrapping around how you get from fdc 15 to a blanket with 4 sides. Lol. Maybe my own inner designer eye is broken today 😂😂

    1. Hahahaha think of it like this…when you make a regular granny square all of your sides are even so you only have to work in the bottom of the one stitch…to make a rectangle you have to have one side longer…so you work across the bottom Fdc…does that help?

  2. I love the blanket! I have a question, what does PS stand for? Would love to see the blanket laid out can’t seem to picture it my mind! Thanks for your help.

  3. I love this pattern and am anxious to get started. I was going to go to Ravelry and pay for the pattern because I like to help designers but the mention above only leads to a cardigan on Ravelry, not this pattern.
    Also, I am not sure what a puff stitch consists of – thanks for your help!

    1. Hi Patty!!! That’s so sweet! This pattern was so simple I decided to just post it Free without a pdf, I didn’t realize I had a Ravelry link! I appreciate it SO much that you buy PDFs for the free patterns, so put so much time into the formatting!

      I have also updated the pattern to include the puff stitch instructions!

      I hope you enjoy making this throw blanket!!! Thank you!!!

  4. Gorgeous throw. My hubby and I have been married almost 38 yrs. empty nesters, been caring for family for the last 7 years. Just moved to our first place without anything… starting over. Waiting for new furniture to come. Been shopping with hubby and he keeps looking at throws. I saw this and knew he would love it!!! Thank you so much for sharing it. He asked when we were looking if I thought I could make something like this one only bigger. Can’t wait to get started!
