It’s time for part 3 of our Winter Waves Throw Blanket Crochet Along! We started this quilt-inspired crochet throw just a couple of weeks ago. You can find all the information and materials here.
Also, if you haven’t joined our crochet group on Facebook, you really should. I may be biased but it really is the best one out there. Crocheting with friends is just more fun.

Block Layout and Count
Part 3 is another square paneln number 2 of 4. This panel uses the same squares you learned for panel 1. Each block will again be a combination of your main neutral and one of our 4 coordinating colors.
Panel #2 Blocks
-16 blocks total
-4 of each color
Sound familiar? Each of the 4 square panels we are making will use the same block count if you want to work ahead.
Blocking your square is optional but I find it helpful.
Here is this week’s layout
I settled on a herringbone pattern for this one. Your neutral square halves will butt up to another neutral and your color halves will butt up to another color half of the same color. This will help the herringbone pattern be more obvious. I made the chart in 2 colors so you can choose your owl color layout.
White = main color
Purple – coordinating colors
Whipstitch your squares together using your main neutral color. You can find a tutorial here.
After you sew them together, move on to the border
Using MC and 6mm hook. Join yarn in any corner, sc evenly around placing 3 sc in each corner ch-2. Join to top of 1st sc with sl st. Finish off and weave in ends.
