The Family Room Throw is a super comfy throw that is lofty, lacy and crocheted in soothing tones for the home. This super easy blanket is made with thick, fluffy yarn and a large hook so it stitches up very fast. You’ll be able to quickly make one for your home plus a great gift too! Looks great draped across a sofa, favorite chair, on a bed. Makes a thoughtful handmade housewarming gift too!

Instructions for the Family Room Throw:
Note: Blanket pictured is worked in four rows per color to create the stripe sequence as shown. However, please feel free to experiment with any colors and strip thickness that you want!
Row 1: Work a dc in the 4th chain from hook then ch 1. *Work a dc in the next ch. Skip a ch, and in the next chain, work (dc, ch 1) . Repeat from * to end.
Row 2: Ch 3 and turn. Work (dc, ch 1, dc) in each of the chain 1 spaces from the previous row (center of each “V”). At the end of the row, finish with a dc in the last space (turning chain space from previous row).
Repeat row 2 until blanket measures about 70 inches long (or desired length) and fasten off.
Weave in any ends that remain and you’re finished your Family Room Throw!
