Join Furls and Tamara of Moogly for the latest Furls Fiberarts Crochet-a-Long.  This month we will be making a gorgeous throw pattern, perfect for holiday gift, or just to cuddle up with your loved ones this holiday season.  

Get to know our designer, and enter to win the hook we used to make this lovely throw.  

WHAT WE ARE MAKING...

Hello there! I'm Tamara Kelly, designer/blogger/author/chief yarn sniffer at Moogly, where I share lots of free crochet patterns, video tutorials, giveaways, and other yarny goodies. This month marks the debut of my new book, Quick Crochet for the Home, and I can't think of any better way to celebrate that than to share an exclusive new blanket pattern here on Furls - after all, I used Furls hooks when designing the patterns for my book! So without further ado, this month's CAL is for the Snow Capped Throw!

The Snow Capped Throw is made with bulky yarn, so it's a quick make - you can have it ready by the holidays!

Inspired by the snow covered Rockies I was lucky enough to see a few times this year, it's got that great chunky look that is so loved right now.

It's very cozy, very usable, easy to take care of, and fun to crochet! You don't have to be an expert level crocheter to make this - it's easier than it looks!

WHAT YOU WILL NEED...

First, you have a choice to make! You can make the Snow Capped Throw all in one color, as shown above, or you can make a 2 color version like this sample:

In total, you will need 14 balls of Lion Brand Wool-Ease Chunky, which is a Bulky yarn with the yarn symbol "5" - in the Uk, that's a 12 ply. Each skein has 153 yards, so that's 2125 yds total.

If you want the all white version, that would be 14 balls of Fisherman, and for the 2 color version you will need 7 balls each of Fisherman and Mulberry. Or of course you can pick your own colors!

We Will Be Using These Tools:

* US – N, 9.0mm Furls hook - I used the Candy Shop version!

* Large yarn needle for weaving in ends

AND IN THE MEANTIME... LET'S GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER!

I got the chance to chat with Harrison about life, the Crochet Along, crochet, you know... check it out! :D

A Note About Comments

Furls Crochet Team

November 9th, 2016

Hey everybody! Shortly into our CALs we realized that our out-of-the-box blog comment system wouldn't let us reply to your comments.

We've since installed Disqus, above, which allows you guys to respond to each other and us to reply to your questions; seems like a no-brainer!

We will continue to display existing comments from the old comment system on all existing blog posts. All future commenting will be done through Disqus. Enjoy!
