Get Ready for Fall with the New Winterberry Throw Crochet Pattern

Winterberry Throw free crochet pattern by DivineDebris.com

It might still be over 90 degrees outside, but this month I’m ready for all kinds of Fall wonder. I mean, I released 2 sweaters (the Stephanie Sweater and the Evelyn Crop Top Sweater) and now here’s a new and cozy throw blanket. Say hello to the Winterberry Throw crochet pattern – my new favorite blanket!

If you’ve been following me on Instagram or Facebook lately, you’ve definitely seen me working on this design. I posted more than once about it, of the woes of making 49 squares or seaming the blanket. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad it’s done but wow, blankets are huge projects ya know? If you’ve ever received a blanket from someone, it’s a labor of love and beyond kind.

But, yeah, you’re not like me so you probably don’t need to get this blanket done in less than a month so it’ll be easier and funner for you, probably. I personally do like blankets of squares because then you can pick them up and put them away as you need, it’s a good “in between projects WIP,” which I know I always have a few of.

Anyway, I do hope you like the Winterberry Throw crochet pattern here and give it a try. If you do, make sure to tag me in photos on Instagram!

Please note: I was provided the yarn for this pattern by Lion Brand Yarn for the purposes of making this design, without compensation. I wasn’t provided the yarn with the expectations of positive or negative reviews but I did enjoy using this yarn, I’ve used it many times and it’s always a great worsted acrylic yarn.

Seaming

Click here to check out a photo tutorial of how to seam this blanket.

Once you’ve finished 49 squares, arrange the blanket in 7 rows by 7 squares. Begin on the first 2 rows, working from right to left, hold 2 squares together so that their right sides (RS) are facing up. Skip the ch-1 at the corner, slip st into the BLO of the next 25 stitches of rnd 19, *skip the ch-1s at the corners, ch 1 between sets of squares, skip the ch-1s at the corners, hold together the next 2 squares and slip st across the BLO of the next 25 sts, * repeat from * to * until all 7 sets of squares are seamed. Repeat this seaming for the remaining rows of squares.
Repeat the process of going the other direction (top to bottom) while making a ch-1 around the previous ch-1s between the sets of squares.

Blanket Border

Note:
For this section you will need to do a modified sc (abbreviated as msc below) to single crochet together the ch-1 spaces at the corners of the squares (this will help eliminate gaps at the your border): insert your hook into the BLO of the ch-1 at the corner of the square you’re currently working and insert your hook into the BLO of the ch-1 at the corner of the next square, yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through the 2 loops on your hook.


This border is just a sc around, with ch-2s at the corner. Feel free to adjust this as you’d like.


Rnd 1: Create a slipknot on your hook (this will make your first st a standing sc) and start in the top right-hand corner, sc into the next 25 sts of the first square, *msc the ch-1s, sc into the 25 sts of the next square,* repeat from * to * 5 more times, ch 2 at the corner and rotate your blanket, sc into the next 25 sts, *msc the ch-1s, sc into the 25 sts of the next square,* repeat from * to * 5 more times, ch 2 at the corner and rotate your blanket, sc into the next 25 sts, *msc the ch-1s, sc into the 25 sts of the next square,* repeat from * to * 5 more times, ch 2 at the corner and rotate your blanket, sc into the next 25 sts, *msc the ch-1s, sc into the 25 sts of the next square,* repeat from * to * 5 more times, ch 2 at the corner and rotate your blanket, slip st into the first st — 700 sc, 24 msc, 4 ch-2 spaces
Fasten off, weave in your ends.
Rnd 2: Ch 1, *sc into the next 181 sts, (sc, ch 2, sc) into the next ch-2 space,* repeat from * to * 3 more times, slip st into the first st – 732 sc, 4 ch-4 spaces
Fasten off, weave in your ends. Block (if necessary) to reach the 50” x 50” size.
