Crocheted Amish Quilt-Inspired Throw

By:

Solid and striped yarns add visual movement to this Crocheted Amish Quilt-Inspired Throw from Red Heart Yarn. Crocheted with a background of grey heather yarn, the more saturated colors really pop from the background for maximum color impact. A modern twist on the Amish black foundation, the grey is a hot color in decorating and gives the throw a thoroughly modern look. Check out this pattern and more in our We've Got You Covered: 25 Crochet and Knit Throws free eBook from Red Heart Yarns.


Throw is 44” x 54”.

Notes

Throw is worked in Diagonal Rows from Square 1 in the left corner, increasing Squares in each Diagonal Row until one side has 21 Squares, making 2nd corner. Then Diagonal Rows are worked with 21 Squares for 6 more rows to add length and make 3rd corner. Then Squares are decreased in each Diagonal Row until one Square remains for last corner. New Squares are joined on to previous Squares at lower edge of Square and then join along one side edge of corresponding Square of previous Diagonal Row. Each Diagonal Row is worked in one color across all Squares and colors are alternated every Diagonal Row. The Assembly Diagram on page 62 has numbers to guide you on the order squares are crocheted.

Special Abbreviations

Large Shell = 5 dc in same st.
Small Shell = 3 dc in same st.
