Weekend Granny Throw Crochet Pattern

This graphically interesting throw is easy to make.  Start at the center with thicker than usual yarn and make just one great big granny square. It’s crocheted in one piece, so there is nothing to sew together.

Weekend Granny Throw

I love this throw. Can you use the traditional way of starting the throw with a ring since. I am not familiar with the method used to in this throw to start. I have tried to understand it but with no luck. Is there a video to learn your method?

I made this Throw and I used purple, teal, and buff and it came out really nice. The colors look really good and it is really nice and soft.
I would use this bulky super saver yarn again no problem. Like it very much.

Grannys are so much fun!

I was looking for an easy project for a holiday throw. I'm currently on disability so this would be a great project for me. I was thinking to get the chunky look using the great christmas color yarn that I've seen in stores, I could hold 2 or 3 strands together. Any thoughts? I'm open to suggestions or pattern referral on this site :-) Need something not too complicated even though I am an experienced crocheter due to the fact that I am on pain medication and I am a perfectionist when it comes to my handmade items.

Thanks!

Super Saver Chunky Yarn FOR GRANNY SQUARE

THE Super Saver Chunky Yarn IS GREAT FOR THIS THROW. I MADE IT & IT WORKS UP BEAUTIFUL!

FOR CHRISTMAS COLORS I WOULD TRY THE CHERRY RED & WHITE. FOR THE GREEN YOU COULD USE THE TEA GREEN IT'S DARKER THAN SHOWN MORE OF A LIGHT OLIVE. YOU COULD SUBSTITUTE ANOTHER CHUNKY YARN FOR THE GREEN? I WOULD TRY THE TEA GREEN IT GOES WITH ALL THE Super Saver Chunky Yarn COLORS & COULD BE USED ALL YEAR ROUND. OR YOU COULD MAKE IT WITH JUST TWO COLORS CHERRY RED & WHITE & USE IT FOR VALENTINES DAY AS WELL.

WHY HOLD TWO OR THREE STRANDS OF YARN...THIS YARN IS SO MUCH EASIER TO WORK WITH?

HOPE THIS HELPS YOU?

I usually find good deals on

I usually find good deals on yarn on eBay. I haven't found any of the Super Saver Chunky on there but they have lots of colours.

I like these funky pairings...

If you are using the Red Heart Chunky....

How about Magenta & Tea Leaf or Carrot & Teal

My favorite would be if they had a light pink; I would pair that with the Tea Leaf.....the possibilites are endless!
