Briar Blanket

Briar, meaning “thorny bush of wild roses” seemed a fitting name for a blanket filled with textured stitches and rose-inspired hues of deep maroon and soft taupe. This intricate blanket is a cozy addition to your summer-to-fall home décor.

Amber Plaid Throw

This plaid blanket is made of individual squares which are seamed together using the mattress stitch. The squares are made of herringbone half double crochet – a fun and modern twist on the standard HDC stitch. The design uses worsted weight yarn and is finished with fringe along the short sides.

Ocean Sunrise Throw

This beachy throw gets its airy texture from solid and openwork rows of double crochet ripple stitch. The striped pattern, worked in a dozen sea and sunrise colors, is framed in white double crochet with fun shell “tassels” on the short edges.

Midnight Garden Afghan

The Midnight Garden Afghan is inspired by the dark floral fabrics that have been popular for moody, bohemian home decor. Dark blue sets the tone and frames large and small scale flowers, making them pop. Green leaves and vines give some foliage. Simple border and crochet pom pom trim finishes off the edges, adding a fun detail to the Afghan.

Harmony Hairpin Lace Afghan

Inspired by colorful abstract paintings, this afghan is large enough to go over the top of a single bed, but it’s also the right size for a picnic on the beach. It is made with three sizes of strips using a hairpin loom (which have rows of sc between the side loops ), woven together. There is a right and a wrong side. Afghan is edged with a twisted fringe on the short edges, scs and hdcs along the long edges, using a neutral shade to imitate traditional woven blankets.

Mitered Triangles Afghan

A modern twist to create a contemporary feel. Large miter triangles meet at the center of this afghan to create a visual effect that draws the eye outward. Simple rows of single and double crochet, can be made in a variety of color band widths, to allow a very customizable design. This is a great design for both men and women, with some bright colors it can even be enjoyed by kids.
