Crochet Buttercream Stripes Throw Blanket

Hello Crochet Friends!  

It’s Cyndi!  I’m Tiff’s older sister and I have been learning how to crochet and design crochet over the last eight months.

Most of what I’ve learned has been from the very easy to follow library of video tutorials Tiff has made over the years that are on her Daisy Farm Crafts YouTube channel!  

If you haven’t yet, stop by and visit us for Crochet Sister Chat now on my YouTube channel, Sugar Joye where we chat about what we are working on and I get to ask Tiff all of my beginner crochet questions!  

The very first stitch I learned to design with was the Single Crochet.  If you are curious you can check out my very first pattern The Half and Half Scarf

I think the single crochet is a beautiful stitch and I have been really enjoying exploring designing with single crochet and all the variations like front loop, back loop and front post.  

With this latest blanket project, I’ve added the back post single crochet (BPSC) to my stitch library which is another simple variation on the single crochet that makes an even more graphic style of ribbing than the front post single crochet.

My design inspiration for this project came from Hannah’s Crochet Vertical Lines Throw

and Tiff’s Crochet Mesh and Ribbed Stitch Throw.

I really love long vertical lines. They not only look beautiful but I really enjoy crocheting long rows with no stitch or color changes.  My idea was to combine texture and a subtle color change into a cozy neutral throw.

I also added some short crocheted fringe on the ends that I think look really nice!  Check out my video on crochet fringe that can be added to any crochet or knit project!

I really loved how relaxing this was to make!  And I think you will too!

This is a couch-sized throw made with two neutral colors. There are 3 sets of 40 rows of alternating 3 rows of SC and 1 row of BPSC alternating colors at the center point to create a center strip and add dimension to the textured vertical stripe pattern.

Chain 140 (or any even number needed for approximately 6 feet.)

ROWS 1 through 3:  SC in the second chain from the hook, SC into each chain across the row. On 3rd row, pull through with Color 2, cut color 1. CH 1 and turn.

Color 2 

ROW 4:  Work 1 SC into the 1st stitch, BPSC around the 1st post.  Continue working BPSC around each stitch. SC into the last stitch of the row. Pull back through with color 1, cut color 2.  Ch 1 and turn.

ROW 5:  Repeat Row 1 through 3.

Tip: The first row of SC after the BPSC should be worked into the SC row that is behind the BPSC row.  The BPSC is never worked into.

ROW 6:  Repeat Row 4 and Row 5  Continue for a total of 120 rows.

For the center stripe, reverse color 1 and color 2 at row 44 and switch back at row 88.  There should be 10 rows of BPSC in each section.

Tip:  Keep in mind that the BPSC rows are all worked on while looking at the non-textured side of the blanket.   This blanket is easily sized up or down by increasing or decreasing the repeat section of the pattern.

Tie off and weave in the ends.

Crochet Fringe Border

Single Crochet (SC): Insert your hook, YO and pull up a loop, YO and pull through two loops on hook.

Slip Stitch (SLST): Insert your hook, YO and pull a loop back through and through loop on hook.


For this add-on version of Fun Fringe, I made two separate balls of yarn and doubled up the strands to create a chunky fringe.   I also used a different color of fringe on either end because I couldn’t make up my mind which color I liked best!  I worked one row of single crochet at each end to create a uniform row from which to work the fringe.

ROW 1:  Pull up a loop and work SC. SC into each space along the row. Chain 1 and turn. 

ROW 2: Work a slip stitch into the first space from the hook. Chain 7,

ROW 3:  Turn and work a slip stitch into each chain.  At the base, work a slip stitch into the same space the chain started from. Work a slip stitch into the next chain.

Repeat Row 2 and Row 3 until finished.  Tie off and weave in the ends.
