When you head to the shore this summer, remember to grab your sunglasses, floppy hat, bathing suit, and this Summer Breeze Beachy Throw Pattern so you can hook up a crochet blanket as soft as the sand between your toes. This summer afghan pattern is perfect for your beach house or back porch, but will lend an easy-going beachy elegance to any style decor. The stitch design is reminiscent of shells or pebbles you might pocket on a stroll through the surf. If you could crochet what a day at the beach feels like, it would be this easy breezy beachy throw!

I love the very light colors used in this Summer Breeze Beachy Throw for its hues and yarn used. Problem is that multicolored yarn is not sold in my country. Much as I would like to do this type of project, I cannot completely fulfill it due to lack of materials required.

This is a beautiful Summer Breeze Beachy Throw. The colors do remind me of the beach with all the different colors. I love the dcX stitch, it's so easy to do and leaves just a little space to let in the breeze. I've saved this one and it's on my must make list. The pattern is well done and easy to follow. Thank you so sharing this free crochet throw pattern.

These beachy colors are to die for. If I am not drooling over ocean and turquoise waters colors, this is my next choice. I like a tiny bit of a pale coral mixed in there for good measure. Don't you think this is aperfect choice for a housewarming gift for newlyweds? We never think of vacations, picnics, and lake house or cabins, do we? You could make a big themed gift using this blanket as the main item, and throw in a certificate for dining out or a spa visit at the beach. So pretty!

That is a fabulous idea! My cousin is getting married at the end of August, and I just may steal that gift pairing! You could even use the blanket like wrapping paper and tuck the gift certificate inside and tie the whole thing up in a bow! (Though make sure the recipients know something is inside the blanket!!)
