Lark Throw Free Crochet Blanket Pattern

I love a good easy corner to corner crochet blanket pattern. They’re great to sit back and watch a favorite show because you don’t have to think too much. Plus when they get bog enough they keep your lap warm while you crochet. The Lark Throw Crochet pattern was designed with a fun color striping. The great thing is I worked it out so you don’t have to fasten off (except when adding a new skein) which means NO ends to weave in! I have weaving in ends, haha. Of course you don’t have to follow the stripe pattern. You can follow the stitch pattern and add your own stripes or none. The possibilities are endless!

Size 

Approx. 52” square

Yarn

We Crochet Brava (100% premium acrylic; 218yds/100g; worsted weight)

9 balls color A: Dove Heather – SKU: 28428

4 balls color B: Persimmon – SKU: 28444

Hook

I/5.5 mm hook (or hook to obtain gauge)

I used my Radiant hook from We Crochet which I love! It’s light weight and feels good in my hand. If you want to try these hooks I suggest the Mosaic set. The different colors help you keep track of sizes.

Abbreviations

Ch = chain

St = stitch

Sc = single crochet

Notes
This throw will be worked from corner to corn in a diagonal fashion.
The size of this throw can easily be adjusted by working more rows of the increase to make it larger (or less to make it smaller). Keep in mind this will change the yardage needed

Gauge 

16 st by 15 rows in pattern = 4” square (blocked)

Gauge Pattern

Ch an odd number

Row 1: sc in the 2nd ch from hook, *ch 1, skip 1 ch, sc in the next ch; repeat from * until 1 ch remains, sc in the last ch.

Row 2: ch 1, turn, sc in the 1st, *ch 1, sc in the next ch-1 space; repeat from * to the last ch-1 space, sc in the last sc. 

Repeat row 2 to desired length

Stripe instructions: To avoid fastening off this pattern has been written using an extra skein color A (A2) and an extra skein of color B (B2). When changing color do not fasten off, work to the last step of the last stitch of the row, finish the stitch with the new color. You can hide the floats by working over them in the first ch of the new row but the floats will be hidden by the trim so it’s not necessary.

Stripe Pattern 

Increase: (2 rows color A, 1 row color B, 2 rows color A2, 1 row color B) 10 times, (4 rows color A, 1 row color B, 4 rows color A2, 1 row color B) 6 times, (6 rows color A, 1 row color B, 6 rows color A2, 1 row color B) 2 times.
