Add a huge pop of color to any room by making this Bright Boomerangs Crochet Throw. With three vibrantly-colored boomerangs covering this crochet throw pattern, you'll have to force yourself to look away. The three-sided boomerangs are crocheted in shocking pink, carrot, and gold.

In between the boomerangs is a neutral charcoal which makes them stand out even more. The border is composed of three thin stripes of your boomerang colors. This colorful crochet pattern is a one-of-a-kind design, even if you choose to use softer shades of worsted weight yarn.

NOTES:
1. Throw is made from boomerang motifs
and triangles arranged as shown in
Assembly Diagram below.
2. Boomerang motifs are joined with a
“join as you go” technique. Begin with
Foundation Motif and work across rows
from bottom of throw to top joining
boomerang motifs 1, 2, and 3. Next work
2-arm boomerangs at ends of rows. Refer
to diagram below for correct placement of side-to-arm
and arm-to-side joins.
3. 1-arm boomerangs are made after all
other motifs are worked. Triangles are
sewn in last between motifs.
4. Border is worked in joined rounds with.
Refer to Assembly Diagram below for placement
of first stitch.
