StemCell Throw

Maroon and brown color palettes; even though they are acknowledged as dark colors; when combined with white give a soothing pastel shade. I was drawn to this unique set and was looking forward to creating something that is unisex and ideal for any home with any furniture color. Thus, I created this unisex throw that could be matched with any dark color, taupe, brown, red, white colored furniture. The close stitch gives more warmth than Autumn Lapghan, my first blanket for my home.

Process:

I liked the simple single color pattern Crochet Lap Afghan, (Crochet Lap Afghan – picture) and decided to blend my chosen palette in this design. The design contains Double Crochet (DC), Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC), Back Post Double Crochet (BPDC), Single Crochet (SC).

Info: The pattern does not exist in the provided website, so I’m writing it out.

Pattern:-

R1: Chain 151, DC from the 3rd chain, DC across. Turn. Total 147 DC.

R2: Ch 2, FPDC in each DC, Turn. Total 147 FPDC.

R3: Ch 2, BPDC in FPDC. Turn. Total 147 BPDC.

R4: Ch 2, FPDC in BPDC. Turn. Total 147 FPDC.

R5: Ch 2, DC in FPDC. Turn. Total 147 DC.

The pattern gets divided into 2 sections:-

Interior:-

Since I wanted my throw bigger than the projected size of the pattern, I started with 151 chains.

  • Using skin brown color yarn, I copied the rows (1-5) 3times.
  • After 5th row, I changed the color to dark maroon and repeated the rows (1-5) 3 times.
  • A batch could be described as R1-R5 repeated 3 times.
  • With alternate yarn colors for every batch, I repeated the process up to a total of 4 times.

Border:-

 For borders, I used white yarn. Instead of Single crochet (SC) stitch, I used Double Crochet (DC) stitch and mirrored the steps provided in the pattern.

Product Specifications:

Dimensions:-

  • Length: 60″
  • Width: 41″

Alterations:-

  • The sizes can be changed based on your requirement.
  • The edging can be made of Single Crochet (SC), Crab Stitch, Slip Stitch, Herringbone Half Double Crochet (HHDC).
  • Instead of regular yarn, fur yarn will bring out a pop to the border.
  • Instead of going for 3rd color for the border, use both the base colors around for alternate rows.
    • The border shouldn’t be too broad to pop out. The purpose should be to provide a clean edge.
  • You can add pom-pom or tassels (matching the color with the edging or the base color) at the 4 corners. Link to make pom-pom and tassels.
  • Avoid the border and just add tassels/pompoms made of a mixture of the base colors.
  • You can attach flowers, beads, appliques or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather, fabric etc to make it more interesting.

Remember: do not over accessorize it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!
