I’ve been fairly quiet online lately which is a sure sign that I’ve been busy. Crochet projects are filling up corners of my home and I’m steadily building tottering towers of crochet loveliness. One such tower has finally been turned into a blanket and the pattern is written up. Meet my Fireside Throw a rustic, cosy crochet blanket. Its another exclusive design for Deramores and just perfect for autumn evenings sat beside the fire (or radiator!).
Fireside Throw is worked in Deramores Woolpaca Chunky in autumnal colours. The yarn is a chainette yarn which means it has a bit of stretch to it and feels light and airy while still being deliciously warm and snugly. The yarn is chunky weight so the blocks work up nice and quickly on a big hook.
The pattern is graded intermediate but would be suitable for fairly new crocheters too. Its an easy pattern to master and works up quickly. Squares are sewn together and then a quick and easy border finishes off the blanket.
I really enjoyed making this blanket, despite starting it on one of the hottest weeks of the year. Its hard to crochet with wool in a heatwave! I photographed the blanket at mum’s house in front of the fireplace and we briefly thought about lighting the fire for a better shot but agreed it was waaaayyy too hot! I’m really looking forward to the end of summer and the start of frosty mornings and chilly nights so I can make use of the Fireside Throw.
The yarn has been discontinued but the pattern is still available here in my Ravelry store. I recommend using a chunky weight yarn that isn’t too stiff.
I hope you enjoy the pattern and your finished throw keeps you warm and snug when autumn comes knocking!
