Oh my another great pattern to add to my must make list! I love the look of this Starry Nights Throw. The pattern is well written and with a little know how it should come out nicely. I like the colors in this one and the stitches are well explained. I'm looking forward to making this textured throw. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet throw pattern.

This is beautiful and so complicated. (

Yes, as indicated above, this is an advanced pattern. If you're looking for easier designs that are still beautiful, we certainly offer plenty of those! Here's the URL to a page that lists a bunch. Enjoy! https//www.allfreecrochetafghanpatterns.com/Throw-Patterns/Quick-Easy-Crochet-Blanket-Patterns

I like the way the yarns are combined in this Starry Nights Throw. The plain ash gray yarn alternating with the aqua blue printed yarn gave the blanket a very unique and intriguing appearance. Very good idea.

This reminds me of the Northern Lights!! It's so pretty, I want to hook this for myself and forget my gift list this coming holiday season!
