Crochet Happy Holiday Throw

It’s cheerful and educational all wrapped up in one afghan. It’s giftable and would be an awesome stash busting free pattern. For colouring, Diva Dan selected neutral blue combination from my own yarn collection using Caron Simply Soft. See my notes below about switching to this yarn. This is the Crochet Happy Holiday Throw.

This pattern calls for 7 colours of Red Heart Super Saver. I am assigning Diva Dan’s selections to each colour of my own version to stay on track.

You can follow along or speed ahead. The full pattern is available.

After Filming Suggestion for Section 4 – Bobbles

Dc Clusters naturally pop out to the opposite side of the work. In the written instructions, it’s telling us to do this stitch on the right side of the afghan. Meaning, the popping out will naturally fall to the back of the afghan. I am recommending the following:

  1. Fasten off in Week 3 completely. 
  2. Then start Week 4 on the Wrong Side (WS) and continue the pattern as written for the entire section. This will make all DC Cluster Rows pop out to the front of the afghan.
  3. At the end of this section, I would recommend fastening off. Then starting Part 5 on the Right Side as it suggests and continue as written. 

Learning Opportunities

I have decided to make this a pop-up stitch along with the concept. I cannot quickly film this and need time in between sections. I decided to break this afghan up into 6 parts.

  1. Ripple Pattern
  2. Cluster Shell Pattern
  3. Larksfoot Pattern
  4. Bobble Stripes Pattern
  5. Zig-Zag Pattern
  6. Final Border

The afghan has a significant repeat. If you look carefully at it.

  • It’s rows 1 – 63.
  • Then repeat rows 2 – 63.
  • Then repeat rows 2 – 12.
  • Border

Video Goals

To do each section to get you to the repeat of ending at row 63. Then you will follow the written instructions and repeat back by revisiting the videos, if required, to do the sections all over again. Each section will be its own video.

Restrictions

Due to this being a stitch sampler and through past experiences, I am not going to figure out how to change the sizing. Each stitch combination is a different stitch multiple which makes it difficult, sometimes unrealistic multiple stitch count numbers. We did a stitch sampler. The Christmas Morning Throw is an example of a stitch sampler we have done where the stitch multiples were not possible to repeat across to slightly change the size. Stitch samplers, especially when fabulous, can be like that.

Mikey’s Colours

I decided to look at my stash and pull some yarn. Truth is, Daniel is our colour guy and he selected it. I will need to change the hook size to 5 mm / H for my version which will decrease the size of the blanket. I don’t know how much yarn I will actually go through by changing out the yarn.

  • Contrast A – Off White
  • Contrast B – Soft Green
  • Contrast C – Country Blue
  • Contrast D – Dark Country Blue
  • Contrast E – Grey Heather Tweed
  • Contrast F – Off White Tweed
  • Contrast G – Charcoal
Modern Frosty Winter Colours

Modern Frosty Winter Colours. We purposely picked deflated balls.

Tutorial Sample

Due to time constraints, I taught the repeating for each pattern section. The videos give the demonstrations, which includes the border. I wish I had free time to complete this entire blanket. It is really nice.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.
