The Grande Metallic Throw – Free Crochet Pattern

The simplest designs are sometimes the best and this super chunky knit-look crochet throw is no exception. Perfect to snuggle under or haphazardly drape over the sofa this chunky block coloured throw will add a touch of classic simplicity to your home.

Until I designed this I’d never used such a chunky hook before – a massive 20mm/S one! It takes a bit of getting used to but the best bit is that once you get going you will have a throw made in a flash! Hurrah for big hooks I say.

The throw is perfect for beginners as it only uses UK double crochet and half treble stitches or US single crochet and half double crochet stitches (the pattern uses both UK and US terminology so you can pick whichever you feel most comfy with).

The Yarn

I used Red Heart Grande Metallic but if you can’t get hold of any then I’d suggest some Cygnet Yarns Seriously Chunky Metallics which is just as lovely.

Both yarns are seriously chunky and you will need 10 balls stop create the throw in colours of your choice. I went for 2 balls each of

Smoke #1400, Glacier #1510, Wisteria #1530, Mulberry #1705, Straw #1115 in the Red Heart Grande Metallic for my throw.
