Wow, isn’t this stunning?! This throw is designed by Carol Alexander. I’ve known Carol for 20 years. She and her good friend, Brenda Stratton, were the driving force behind my “learning the ropes” of writing crochet patterns for books and magazines and they introduced me to turning my hobby into a career.
Carol Alexander was the editor of Crochet! magazine for 13+ years and she’s the 2017 recipient of the Jean Leinhauser Hall of Fame award from the Crochet Guild of America.

For this project, there are five gingham strips, made separately. Then, you make the floral squares separately. Everything is all joined and you end with this stunning beauty. The pattern uses four colors of worsted weight yarn and is rated a skill level of intermediate. I would really love to see one of these made in the currently-trending plaid colors made so popular by Bethany Dearden of Whistle & Ivy.

The entry form will load immediately below these words. Wait for it to load. If it doesn’t load, you may need to break out your laptop because some devices (I’m looking at you, iPad) strip the code sometimes.
Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDFs of my patterns so you would get something in return. I'm steadily working on adding PDFs to all my patterns and I've also made this compilation available at a discounted price. You can, of course, view, print, paste to a word processor, convert to PDF, etc. on your own. This is just an extra feature so that people help out, if they want. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
