5 Little Monsters: Dreamy Diamonds Throw

Dreamy Diamonds Throw

- Yarn for this project provided by Red Heart. This post may contain affiliate links.-


Today I am excited to be participating in the Hygge Home Crochet Along. This crochet along started a couple of weeks ago and lasts through the middle of March. Each week a different crochet designer will share a new pattern, each having to do with the theme "Hygge Home", or projects designed to may your home comfy and cozy. You can find all of the crochet along details HERE, including how you can win fun prizes.



As I was deciding on what I wanted to make I thought about what I think of when I think of a cozy home. One of the things that immediately came to mind was soft, comfy blankets. I also knew that I wanted to use soft neutral colors.


Red Heart supplied the yarn for this crochet along and I thought their Dreamy yarn would be perfect. It has a soft brushed effect that I thought would be perfect for a soft cozy throw. I chose ivory and grey to make a striped throw.


I wanted a simple design so I chose to use double crochet stitches and chain spaces to create a diamond pattern. Each stripe has one repeat of the diamond pattern.


How to Crochet the Dreamy Diamonds Throw

Finished size approximately 42" x 50"

You will need:


I did not work a border around this throw (although there is enough yarn left over that you could if you want). Because I knew this was my plan I wanted to make sure that the edges were nice and neat so I chose to work the first dc in each row using the chainless starting double crochet (click the link to see a tutorial on how to do this). If you prefer you can start each row with a ch 3 instead.

start with grey yarn
