This Flavorful Fruit Crochet Throw may remind you of a summer picnic with fresh colorful fruit and whipped cream treats. With its bright fuschia, mango, and green stripes in between stripes of white, this free crochet afghan pattern will put you in the sweet summertime mood you've been searching for.

This blanket even has a ruffled edge that makes it stand out even more. It's an easy pattern, so any crocheter will enjoy working it up on a chilly night in anticipation of bright sunny days to come.


1. When instructed to work into a stitch or space "2 rows below", work into the row numbered 2 less than the current row. For example, if you are working Row 5, a stitch "2 rows below" is in Row 5 – 2 = Row 3.

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.

I love the look of this Flavorful Fruit Crochet Throw. The colors are bright and fun to see. After reading the written pattern above on this page, I can see this one coming out nice. I love the shell border, it helps make the blanket come together and hide the color changes. I'm printing this pattern and save it for later. Thank you for sharing this free crochet pattern.
