Seaside Throw – Interweave Crochet Magazine Spring 2009

I have a design in the Spring 09 issue of Interweave Crochet. It is the Seaside Throw.

I imagined this crochet throw as perfect for chilly days at the beach house. It reminds me of sand, ocean, starfish, netting and rope. Six separate pentagon-shaped motifs are joined together with wedge-shaped inserts to form a pentagon-shaped throw. The throw is edged with a crochet edging that resembles rope.

This innovative throw uses Tunisian slant stitch to make sturdy star-shaped motifs and triangular inserts. The starfish are caught in a netting of Tunisian double crochet and bordered in a rope-like stitch. Two sizes of crochet hooks balance the dense interior and looser netting for a light throw with drape.
