Jewel Box Crochet Throw

The loose weave of this Jewel Box Crochet Throw makes it light enough for summer evenings. This simple shell stitch crochet blanket is designed for intermediate crocheters who are looking to add a bit of elegance to their home decor once the weather warms up. Learn how to crochet an afghan that is lacy and luxurious yet won't make you sweat. It's a great grab-and-go wrap for afternoon picnics in the park or concerts at the lakefront, too.

I like the design and color of this afghan. It helps that the pattern is right in front of the page. Thanks.

camikula 0451010 , if you just need a larger view, you can right click on the photograph and copy it into a work document and then you can stretch that picture to a larger size.. This will not increase the quality of the picture but somtimes it helps with small details. I hope this works for you.

@camikula 0451010: Hi Cathy! Thanks for all your feedback! Because we are a round-up site, we can post only one photo of each pattern. If you would like to see more photos or larger photos, click on the link to the pattern. Unfortunately, we cannot provide any other photos than those given on the original pattern page. We hope you continue to enjoy our patterns! -- Editor of AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns

Hi there,br Just found your website and I love it. Well, sort of. Now I spend all of my time looking at patterns and deciding what I want to do next and all my other projects are sitting partially finished. -)br br I just have one teensy problem - the photographs of the projects whether they be crocheting, Christmas, crafts, whatever. For example, the Jewel Box Crochet Throw, the picture is wonderfully staged but because I can't enlarge the picture (at least I haven't found how to enlarge if your site offers that option) to get a better look at the pattern. Or, for example, the Chocolate Squares Throw, the picture is so small you can't see the pattern and there is no way to see what the finished project would look like because there isn't a full picture of the throw. I don't know about you but I like to see, as well as possible, the finished product. I don't want to go to the expense of time and money to find I don't like the finished product. In fact, there are a lot of your projects I would like to do but won't just because the pictures aren't clear, and they are either too small or can't be enlarged as necessary.br br Thanks to all of you for making a round-up site such as this possible. It is a great place and I truly hope I can see better photographs in the future. Cathy
