Taupe Pearl Throw

After the success of Autumn Lapghan, I got an order to make another blanket for a customer. Though lap afghan was for personal use, it was highly liked and appreciated in on social media such as Facebook, Instagram. This gave me the courage to make more of such big projects.

Since the customer is a bachelor and he is preferring a blanket/throw for his bachelor pad, I wanted to provide some simple color combination that will look elegant in the house and comfy enough for daily use. It could be a unisex color combination that will act as a decorous home decor item.

Process:

I liked the pattern Yarnspirations – Quick & Easy Blanket pattern. I decided I’ll even use the same colors but I end up choosing different colors.  The pattern is having 2 parts: body and border.

Body:-

The pattern uses Slip stitch and single crochet for the main blanket and single crochet for borders. I used single crochet instead of slip stitch and double crochet instead of single crochet.

Borders:-

I didn’t make the border on all 4 sides. It is just an extension of the blanket width wise. I did one row of single crochet then one-row double crochet and then one row of single crochet. I repeated this set 3 times on both sides of the blanket. It ends with single crochet on the last row on both sides.

Product Specifications:

Dimensions:-

  • Length: 52″
  • Width: 40″

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 a different color for the border, use the base colors around.
    • 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. Or for each corner use on
  • 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!!
