Athleisure Striping Throw Crochet Pattern

Athleisure Striping Throw Crochet Pattern and Free Video TutorialThe Athleisure Striping Throw Crochet Pattern is a free pattern on RedHeart.com

There is a very informative video tutorial available on the Marly Bird YouTube Channel.  In the video I show you how to read the instructions as written in the PDF, but I also show you how to read the row by row chart/spreadsheet I wrote to make the crocheting even easier for this blanket.

It gets even easier than that! Once you have the stitch pattern down and only want to use the color sequence, then you could just follow the color sequence chart that is below!

The instructions for the Athleisure Striping Throw Crochet Pattern are written in 3 different ways all to make crocheting this throw as easy, as simple, and as painless as possible. You’re certain to have success on this afghan.

    Only thing I would like to add is that many newe crocheters have a hard time with the reverse single crochet, so I recommend having them do the twisted single crochet on the edges.

    Found this today – Atleisure Stripinhg Throw. Watched your video, downloaded the pattern – so far so good. Went to download the charts and had a heck of a time finding them and getting to fit in a document. Have no idea if I’ll be able to understand when I get ready to start. lol Love the looks of this blanket and so want it to come out as nice as yours. I’m fairly new to crochet and love all of your videos! THANKS

  3. Ellen B. says:

    Love this blanket. Not sure about row 96, shouldn’t it be chain 2, turn? Not fasten off.
    I have also found the use of stitch markers very helpful. Thanks for all your great toutorials!

  4. Rosemary Euresti says:

    Marly, have you corrected the color sequence chart/spreadsheet? If not, I will try to recreate the chart for my use.

  6. Kiran says:

    Hi Marly.. I would like to try this blanket but can it be adapted? Is there a multiple number of chains or something to make it wider or smaller?

  7. Barbara says:

    Really wish you would give us an idea how many skeins needed. That informationi would be very helpful for newbies, especially if we’re using yarns with lot numbers.

      • Barbara Tarvin says:

        Thanks Marly. I am constantly amazed at people who ask questions, that are in the instructions, or video. Now here I am, guilty of the same. I printed the instructions as well as the color graph, yet missed the answer to my one question. Sorry!

  8. Rachell Donohue says:

    Miss Marly, I absolutely love this blanket! I have been searching high and low for a cute blanket for my cousins new baby boy who will be arriving after the New Year. So, now that I’ve found what has settled my creative heart I’m hoping you could tell me the stitch multiple so I can down size it for baby?? I thought about trying to literally cut the pattern in half, ch 60, but I realized I’d end up with a super skinny long blanket lol. Help pls.

    Hi Marly, Love the video on the blanket but after downloading the pattern I went looking for the download on the worksheet and can’t seem to find it. Can you help with a link to download the worksheets you made?
