PAWsome Throw | Free Crochet Pattern

Welcome all dog lovers.

I assume if you noticed this crochet pattern you are either a dog owner, dog lover or it's for someone who has a fur baby.

This crochet pattern is made in C2C method and it works up quite fast. Like for any graphan the most intimidating thing is having tangled yarn. Well, I have a solution for your how to keep all attached yarn well organized.

One option is to use paper clips. Feel free to watch my short video on YouTube

Second option is to buy a plastic box, drill the holes on the lid and keep the yarn there. I also have a short video for this method

I hope these tips will help you for either this project or any other future ones.

Or do you have any other idea? Feel free to share your tip and contact me on my email or on one of my social media.

Here is the link for a YouTube tutorial where I explain C2C (corner to corner) method. In the description of the video you can find time frames for specific topics so you don't have to watch it all, just what you need.

For this throw you need


Colour A - Buff Fleck Super Saver Yarn Red Heart (medium 4) - approx. 1800m/1888yd

Colour B - Dark Charcoal, Loops & Threads, Impeccable Yarn (medium 4) - approx. 500m/570yd Crochet Hook - 6 mm, US - J/10

Scissors, Yarn needle


5 squares x 5 squares (corner to corner DC) = 4” x 4”, 10cm x 10cm

Throw measurements

46" x 60"

Crochet abbreviations

Ch - chain

DC - double crochet

Sl St - Slip Stitch


→ means the row goes from the left to the right (odd numbers of the rows)

← means the row goes from the right to the left (even numbers of the rows)

3A - means 3 squares with colour A

1B - means 1 square with colour B etc.

• when it’s (dec) before the number, it means you have to make the decreasing on that side

For example:

→ 61 (dec) 60A

- this is the odd number of the row so it goes from the left to the right, you make 60 squares of colour A, you decrease on the beginning of this row (last square of the ROW 60 is your corner square and now you start decreasing on this side)

← 76 (dec) 3A, 3B, 1A, 4B, 16A, 3B, 2A, 8B, 2A, 3B, 13A

- from this row you will start decreasing on both sides to make the rectangle shape (your first square of ROW 78 is your corner square. Now you will be decreasing on both sides.
