Augustine Chunky Blanket Free Crochet Pattern

Augustine Chunky Blanket Free Crochet Pattern

Ah - I was so excited when We Are Knitters wanted to collaborate on a blanket pattern. I mean just the thought of all that chunky squishy wool made my heart pitter patter with cozy vibes.

Then I had to decide to Knit or to crochet? It was not an easy choice. I have wanted to knit a throw for quite a while so it was a tough decision. But this blue reminded me so much of the rich tropical ocean, that it inspired me to do an open crochet variation of "shells" throw.

And I am in LOVE with how it came out!

Simplistic in design this throw blanket will work up very fast for you. And the breathability from the spaces make it just the right amount of cozy without being smothered in wool. Not that being smothered in wool is a bad thing :-)

Finished Throw: Approx 45" x 62" (standard throw size)

TECHNIQUE TIP: When you are changing balls of bulky yarn, use this felting technique to connect the two balls of yarn together. This will allow for seamless transition and less bulky bumps in your finished blanket.
