Waves Of Jewel Throw Blanket Crochet Pattern

Waves of Jewel Throw Crochet Pattern
 By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs
This is my comforter set for our bedroom.
My husband picked it out.
I think he did a great job, And I really like it.
But, it needed a pop of color.
I decided I needed a Blanket 
To Throw on my bed, 
for when I am reading or 
crocheting in bed.
My Mother gave me this pillow 
a few years ago, and I used it as 
my inspiration for the Throw Blanket.

My Bedroom colors are Claret Red, 
Brown and Beige
The Pattern is a basic Wave pattern, 
using only 3 colors.

It measures approximately 48 X 72 inches,
of course you can add more rows if you want it longer.
or more waves if you want it wider.

Basically you are stitching the same pattern, every other row.

The dc sts stay the same, but you are alternating the tr sts and sc sts to form the waves.
