Vineyard Throw Crochet Pattern {Free}


One of daughters is always cold…..freezing. For Christmas I made her the Vineyard Throw. It’s super warm and my intent was to give her a small, warm blanket she could wrap up on the couch with while she was reading, etc. 

The Vineyard Throw uses Tunisian crochet. If you’ve never done Tunisian crochet, no worries, I’ll walk you through the pattern step by step.

WEIGHTED BLANKET VINEYARD THROW


My daughter loved the blanket so much that she ended up taking it to bed and sleeping with it. I was immediately aware that she slept better than she had in years. She was never a big sleeper – like me. She would fall asleep around 10:30 or 11 pm and be wide awake at 4 am. This blanket was like one of those weighted blankets that help you sleep, only this one is better because it’s handmade!

Vineyard Throw

Finished Size: 48″ wide x 62″ long

Yarn: #6 super bulky weight (80 oz./1830 yds total)

Sample used: Bernat Mix Home in Twilight Purple – 10 skeins

Hook: Size U/25 mm Tunisian cable hook (Note: I started with a straight hook but found it was so heavy on my hands that I switched to the cable hook halfway through my blanket.)

Notions: Yarn Needle

Gauge:  8 sts and 7 rows = 6.5 inches in pattern

Abbreviations

bo – bind off
ch – chain
tks – tunisian knit stitch
yo – yarn over

For a full list of abbreviations, please see my LIST OF ABBREVATIONS.

Special Stitches:

  • Tunisian knit stitch (tks) – insert hook from front to back between next 2 vertical bars, yo, pull up a loop. For tutorial, please see my Tunisian Knit Stitch post.
  • Return Pass (RetP) – yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, * yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat from * across until 1 loop remains.
  • Sc Bind Off (sc bo) – skip 1st vertical bar, * insert hook between next 2 vertical bars, yo, pull up a loop, yo, pull through both loops on hookrepeat from * across, insert hook through both loops of last stitch. For tutorial, please see my Single Crochet Bind Off post.

Notes:

  • The throw is made holding 2 strands of #6 super bulky weight yarn together.
  • By choosing a yarn that already had pattern/texture changes I avoided having to change out to new skeins even more often – which equals less ends to tie in when you’re finished.
