Free Crochet Pattern | Element Throw

an ivory white crochet blanket with a decorative ribbed texture draped across a bed

Introducing the Element Throw. "Element" can be defined as: (1) basic, rudimentary, and fundamental; or (2) a place where one feels comfortable and at home (in their element). So, it only seemed like the perfect name for this design.

This beginner-friendly crochet throw is the perfect simple modern texture to top off your bedroom, living room, or favorite reading nook. I love the texture because it has no definitive, visible rows that often come with the nature of crocheting simple stitches. It's just a continuous sea of gorgeous texture!

The Element Throw is a quick and meditative make, thanks to the large and squishy super bulky yarn and simple stitching. I'll be sharing the throw size with you today, but the printable version is graded for 10 different sizes — make something small and decorative or large and cozy!

This is a throw size — 50" x 60". The printable version is graded for 9 additional sizes (10 sizes total).


As written, you'll need:

  • approximately 1086yds of a category 6 bulky weight yarn.

Other materials you'll need:

  • 11.5mm crochet hook

  • tapestry needle

  • scissors

Yarn Suggestions:

Any category 6 bulky yarn of your choice should work, but I used a blanket yarn for this design and would recommend the following:

Required Skills

  • working flat

  • gauging

  • basic sts

  • loop recognition

  • following a pattern with minimal or no photo references

  • experience reading a pattern

Skill Level


Stitch Abbreviations

  • ch(s) | chain(s)

  • fhdc | foundation half double crochet

  • hdc | half double crochet

  • RS | right side

  • st(s) | stitch(es)

  • FO | fasten off

  • WS | wrong side


5.25 hdc sts x 6.5 rows = approximately 4" square

NOTE: See notes below for special instruction on how the hdc is worked.

Additional Notes

  • throw is worked flat in rows, turning work at the end of each

  • turning ch 1 does NOT count as a st

  • the hdc st is worked into the front, back, AND third loop; this could also be considered the space between the sts

  • odd number rows are RS; even number rows are WS

  • to customize the width of your throw, add or subtract any number of fhdc to/from Row 1

  • to custom the length of your throw, add or subtract any number of rows to/from the Row 2-98 section, making sure to end on a even number row

  • I highly recommend steam blocking your throw once complete; for more on blocking, click here
