I started making this pattern for (I’m not gonna say who so they don’t get sad that they didn’t get it) for Christmas last year. Then I became pregnant and nauseous, and I was unable to finish any of the projects I had planned for that Christmas. Originally it was going to just be grey and white striped.
When the nausea went away (after Christmas) and I cam back to work on it I quickly got bored of this pattern and decided to change it up some. Slowly this pattern was born. As it grew I decided it should go on JD’s twin sized bunk bed. By the time it was completed my husband decided it was too nice to “just give to the kids”, and He claimed it for his own.
This is why it is called the Scott throw. He loves that it breathes, and that it has some weight. Most every night he puts this on our bed for extra weight.
We recently moved a twin size bed into (soon to be) Joy’s room, and I told him we should put his blanket on it. So far his answer is no (it’s mine) lol.
Scott Throw Pattern
Bernat Blanket yarn or any super bulky weight yarn “6”
4 large skeins color A (grey)
2 large skeins color B (white)
1.5 large or 3 small skeins color C (black)
This should make a 50” wide by 72” long blanket (5 DC = about 5.5”)
- If changing the width of the pattern, the stitch multiples are in sets of 2 + ch 3 for first dc.
- To reduce length; You can make chevron sections shorter by removing 2 rows (must be 2 to keep pattern accurate) or you can reduce the number of rows in the solid areas.
- Try to keep your tension consistent so both ends of the blanket are the same width.
- -Row 1: Using color A, ch 90. dc twice in 4th chain from hook. *skip 1 stitch, 2 dc into next stitch (this forms a group of 2). Repeat * until end. 1 dc in the final chain. (88 double crochets.) Fasten off, join color B and turn.
- -Row 2: With color B ch 3, skip the next dc and dc twice into the space between the first group of 2. * Dc twice between each group of 2* Repeat until the end. 1 dc in the final stitch. Fasten off join color A and turn.
- -Row 3-10: Repeat Row 2 alternating color A and B each row. You should now have 5 rows total of each color (last row should be color B), and this should look like a chevron stripe.
- -Row 11-15: Continuing with stitch pattern, make all five rows using color A.
- -Row 16-24: Starting with color B Repeat Row 2 alternating color B and A each row (row 16 and 24 should be color B). 5 rows of B, 4 of A
- -Row 25-29: Continuing with stitch pattern, make all five rows using color A.
- -Row 30-39: Join Color C Repeat Row 2. alternating color C and A each row. 5 rows total of each color (row 39 should be color A)
- -Row 40-44: Continuing with stitch pattern, make all five rows using color C.
- -Row 45-54: Join Color A. Repeat Row 2 alternating color A and C each row. 5 rows total of each color (row 54 should be color C)
- -Row 55-59: Continuing with stitch pattern, make all five rows using color A.
- -Row 60-68: Starting with color B, Repeat Row 2 alternating color B and A each row (row 60 and 68 should be color B). 5 rows of B, 4 of A
- -Row 69-73: Continuing with stitch pattern, make all five rows using color A
- -Row 74-83: Starting with color B Repeat Row 2. alternating color B and A each row. 5 rows total of each color (last row should be color A)
Please let me know if you try this pattern! I would love to see how yours turns out, and if you like this one please check out my Bella baby (could easily be made larger) blanket pattern also!
Are you looking for a new crochet or knitting project? I am looking for testers to try out some patterns. I currently have a crochet baby blanket pattern and a knit baby blanket, and I will soon have some hat and sweater patterns ready for testers. If you are not interested in testing blanket patterns, but would possibly like to test other patterns please send me a message. I can put you on a list for my other upcoming patterns. In the mean time here are some bag patterns you may like to try.
