If you're in love with autumn as much as we are, you'll be head over heels for the Fall Romance Throw. This motif afghan would be so comfortable to snuggle up under with your spouse or significant other. When the weather gets chilly in the fall, all we want is the summer warmth, but this blanket will allow you to be closer to your love one to get warm. The colors of this crochet blanket resemble the changing leaves in autumn, which we absolutely crave during this time of the year.

Notes:

  1. Throw is made of 84 marquise motifs worked in joined rounds with right side facing. Marquise motifs are joined into Strips which are arranged as shown in Assembly Diagram and joined together.
  2. To change color, work last stitch of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete stitch. Proceed with new color. Cut old color.
  3. When instructed to work into a stitch or space “2 rounds below”, work into the round numbered 2 less than the current round. For example, if you are working Round 3, a stitch “2 rounds below” is in Round 3 – 2 = Round 1.
  4. Beginning and ending tails of Strips are gathered into tassels.

Special Stitches:

  • bphdc (back post half double crochet) = Yarn over, insert hook from back side of work to front and to back again around post of indicated stitch; yarn over and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through all 3 loops. Skip the stitch “in front of” the Bpdc.
  • dc2tog = [Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops] 2 times, yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook.

Special Techniques:

  • Join with Bphdc = Place slip knot on hook, yarn over, insert hook from back side of work to front and to back again around post of indicated stitch; yarn over and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through all 3 loops. Skip the stitch “in front of” the bpdc.
  • Join with dc = Place slip knot on hook, yarn over, insert hook in indicated space, yarn over and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook), [yarn over, draw through 2 loops] twice.
  • Join with sc = Place a slip knot on hook, insert hook in indicated stitch, yarn over and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through both loops on hook.

This afghan is so beautiful. The color combination just right - not too bright, not too drab. It reminds me of some Persian design. Thanks for having the pattern right up front and the diagram, too. Very useful for crocheters.
