I am not great at crocheting, but it's fun to do on those cold wintery nights when watching a movie or program on TV and you want your time to be productive. A few years ago I was fooling around with a crochet hook and some yarn, and made this exact throw without any books, instructions, etc, thinking I had come up with an easy pattern that anyone new to crocheting could do. This is truely a beginner's pattern. I've used the same stitches for making my daughter several scarves to wear with her coats, and because if you use a medium size hook and a soft but bulky yarn, the scarves come out with smiles on the recipient's face. I am currently making one more for her before she heads back to school at Marquette University in Wisconsin. Anything warm is appreciated there where as here in CA the need for scarves isn't that great unless you head to Yosemite and any other high mountain area. This stitch is very versitile and simple. I hope you who try it and are beginners have great success!
