The 50 Shades of Gray Crochet Throw is a great crochet blanket pattern for those who like to try new crochet stitch patterns. The texture of each of the crochet squares is fun to work up each time; a granny square is placed between each of the textured squares in a checkerboard arrangement. For your own unique crochet design work up each square in a different color. Snuggle up on the couch with your newly crocheted throw and just enjoy the elegance that it is.

Easy

Crochet Hook: G/6 or 4 mm hook

Yarn Weight: (4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight and Aran (16-20 stitches to 4 inches)

Materials:

  • RED HEART® Soft®:13 balls 9440 Light Grey Heather
  • Susan Bates® Crochet Hooks: 4mm [US G-6] (for Granny Squares) and 3.75mm [US F-5] (for all other Squares)
  • Stitch markers (optional)
  • Yarn needle
  • Chart

GAUGE: Each Square measures 10 x 10” (25.5 x 25.5 cm); 15 sts = 4” (10 cm), row gauge for individual Squares is given at beginning of instructions for each Square.
Throw measures 47” x 57” (119.5 x 145 cm)

 

Special Stitches
Bpdc (back post double crochet) = Yarn over, insert hook from back side of work to front and to back again around the post of indicated stitch; yarn over and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook), [yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook] twice.
Note: Take care not to work into the top of the same stitch around which the Bpdc was worked; thiswould result in a stitch increase.

Fpdc (Front post double crochet) = Yarn over, insert hook from front side of work to back and to front again around post of indicated stitch; yarn over and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook), [yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook] twice.
Notes: Take care not to work into the top of the same stitch around which the Fpdc was worked; this would result in a stitch increase. If the Fpdc is worked around a stitch several rows below, skip the stitch in the row currently being worked into “behind” the Fpdc.

Fptr (Front post treble crochet) = [Yarn over] twice, insert hook from front side of work to back and to front again around post of the indicated stitch on a previous row; yarn over and pull up a loop (4 loops on hook), [yarn over and draw through 2 loops] 3 times.
Note: Skip the stitch in the row currently being worked into “behind” the Fptr. popcorn = Work 4 dc in indicated stitch, drop loop from hook, insert hook in first of the 4 dc just made, return dropped loop to hook and draw it through, ch 1 to close popcorn. shell = (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in indicated stitch or space.
 

Pattern Notes
1. Throw is made from twenty Squares: Ten Granny Squares and one each of ten different Textured Squares. For photos of all individual squares, see end of pattern.
2. Each Grann y Square is worked in joined and turned rounds. Each Textured Square is worked back and forth in rows, beginning at the lower edge.
3. All Squares are sewn together according to assembly dia gram, and a border worked around the outer edge.
4. When instructed to work around a stitch “2 rows/rounds below” work around the stitch in the row/round numbered 2 less than the row/round you are currently working. For example, if you are working Row 4, a stitch “2 rows below” is in Row 2.

There were no photos at the end of the pattern. Where can I find them?

Hi Trinasue, Thanks for pointing out our error - I've gone ahead and added the photos of the individual squares you'll be making. Thanks so much! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns
