Cluster Lace Throw

Somehow both lacy and cozy, this Cluster Lace Throw is the best of both worlds. This afghan blanket crochet pattern is designed for intermediate crocheters who are looking for a springtime wrap. As you follow this tutorial, you'll master the cluster stitch, which helps this crochet project stand out even if it's only one color. The mossy green of this beautiful blanket matches its soft texture. This elegant throw will keep you warm when a cool spring breeze comes through your open window.
