Country Cottage Crochet Throw

When you look at this Country Cottage Crochet Throw, you may be reminded of playing outside as a child, with grass and dirt stains all over our clothes. Of course, this free crochet afghan pattern is a much more sophisticated and beautiful version of childhood.

This rustic crochet afghan is worked in strips that are then attached, making it a great project to choose if you need to start and stop a lot. Though it's an intermediate level, the repetitiveness of the strips makes it easy to understand and crochet.

Until I scrolled down and read the directions for the country cottage crochet throw I was really contemplating by the picture how this design would reveal itself. This is a "motif" design. Not sure what it is called but stripes are created and then sewn together. From time to time I have difficulty in making the pieces all the same but with edging I am sure that will not be too much of a problem.

This country cottage crochet throw by Red Heart is really very pretty. I think what I like most about it is the calming colors. Being a piece work design is always great for me because that way I can take it along to all of those doctor appointments I have to go to with my disabled husband. People are starting to call me the crochet lady.

Wow! This very subdued Country Cottage Crochet Throw is so conservative and laid back. I can envision a country house with chickens and pigs roaming around. I like how moss green and brown colors were used to create a lovely throw that you won't hesitate to give to your mother-in-law. Thanks for the pattern. Cheers!

This country cottage crochet throw was promoted as a boho afghan which is what brought me to this posting. I dont really consider this a blanket to have a boho look. A rustic look would more properly describe the coloring and the design. It looks easy enough to make for those that are looking for this style.

Such a gorgeous throw pattern and my favorite throw and afghan patterns are those that are worked in strips or squares which are then joined together because it is so simple to amend the size of the finished piece to bigger or smaller. And those colors! So soft and beautiful and snuggly looking just making me want to cuddle under it.
