Plaited Throw Crochet Pattern Ta-Dah

Things have been a tad crazy on the Felted Button front as of late. But amidst the chaos, I'm tickled to make available my Plaited Throw crochet pattern!

It's a whole bunch of color, fabulous texture and, as I always love...

...that it looks as fabulous on the back as it does on the front. I like that. A lot.

The blanket is constructed in strips with additional strips joining to the previous as-you-go. Beause of this I have rated the pattern for an intermediate crocheter, but with all of the nearly 40 included pictures and explanations, I think an ambitious beginner could easily make it. (Remember, in typical Felted Button fashion, if my patterns contain pictures, they are only for additional assistance and not meant to replace the written pattern.)

And a pretty nifty thing is that you can make the blanket any colors you wish. I made mine with Stylecraft Special DK and a G (4mm) hook, but I think any weight would be fabulous! (The colors I used are included in the pattern!) I can envision a really pretty nautical feeling blanket with alternating stripes of navy and white with red accents in the border. This really could be tailored for anyone, I think!

I worked the border with additional colors but think that it would be clean and simple in just one color, as well.

If you want to make yours a different size--easy peasy. Just work your strips to the height you want and then add as many or as few strips for width. Seriously flexible pattern.

You can snag a copy of this pattern in my shops and browse through some other lovely colorful creations while there--


I hope you like it! I've got something a little different on my hook right now--NOT a blanket. But I, of course, have a blanket design in the works, too.

If you want to keep in the "Button" loop--follow me around on Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram.

Be well. Be happy. Be good. Be peaceful. And get some fiber--both the edible kind and the yarny kind. ;)
