I can't wait to make this for my husband!! Thanks for making the pattern so easy to copy into my word document. I can print it out so easily.

Most of the time, we take brown for granted as the main color of a particular project but look at that Archways Crochet Throw. It is so beautiful, very unassuming, very low-key. I'd like to start this project soon. It is really important to see a photo of a finished project as it serves as an inspiration to both new and veteran crocheters.

I always need a quick and easy throw to make and this one is on my list. I like the easy stitches to whip up a great looking throw/afghan. The pattern is well written and easy to understand and follow. Plus it's right here on this page, making it easier to print with the print tab. This throw only uses 2 jumbo size balls of Red heart yarn which is a reasonably priced yarn and comes in many colors. I'm looking forward to making this one. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet throw pattern.
