Sampler Throw Crochet Along: Week 1

Grab your hooks and yarn and let’s get started on our Sampler Throw Crochet Along.  We haven’t set a deadline or completion date on this project, wanting you to work at your own pace. There will be lots of help along the way so if you have questions, just ask and someone will help you understand.  Watch the How-To videos for each square, as well as, a How-To video on sewing your squares together.  Tell us about your progress; show us pics of your squares as you go.  There are five different stitch blocks for this project.  You can us any Red Heart yarn and colors of your choice.  I have selected 10 different colors of Eco-Ways yarns for my throw.

Red Heart’s Crochet Along Update

We unfortunately have run into some issues with the Sampler Throw pattern that we are using for the Crochet Along, and are going to delay the start of the Crochet Along until next Monday, February 14th. We want to make sure all the corrections are posted on our website before we begin, so we don’t confuse you from the get go. We at Red Heart apologize for the delay, but we hope you will join us next week to start the Crochet Along of the Sampler Throw! Thank you for your patience.
