Donna's Dozen Memorable Throws

by Donna Stinson

I did not learn to crochet until later in life, but I am so glad I did. My daughter would come home from college and watch me crochet. She was amazed that with a hook and some yarn that I could create such lovely projects. She caught the fever too and could not wait to learn. She even put down her cell phone! Hats and scarves work up quickly, but a throw/afghan is a little more costly and time-consuming. For this reason, I make sure the yarn I choose is a good quality yarn, has a wide range of colors and will last for many years. Three yarns that I love using are Red Heart Super Saver, With Love and Soft.

To help you get started I have searched Red Heart and came up with 12 beautiful throws. Some knit and some crochet, but if you do not see it here go to for many more.
