Free crochet pattern: Modern color block throw

This is my first blanket pattern. I have become quite obsessed with not only coming up with color combinations, but also excited to finally use up the huge amount of yarn I have.
The beauty of this simple throw is that it works up quickly and depending on your décor can fit any style in your home.
Don’t want it as long? Crochet fewer rows over all. It is 110 rows and absolutely perfect to snuggle up on the couch with. The throw measures approximately 39x77 inches (99.06x195.58 cm)
Time frame depends on you and how slow/fast you normally crochet. I completed mine in 10 days with me working on and off.

Please note that for this throw I used the Chainless Double Crochet method for each row. Please clickhere to watch the YouTube video that shows you the step. It gives your throw a much more polished look.
