bernat® blanket big™ hand-crocheted three hour throw

The three hour throw lives up to its name! You can crochet this jumbo afghan in less than 3 hours!, and you don't even need a giant hook!
Step 1

FINAL DIMENSIONS: 36" x 36" [91.44 cm x 91.44 cm]

Step 2

INSTRUCTIONS:
TIP: Crocheting with your hands isn’t really any harder than crocheting with a hook. You still yarn over with the yarn before pulling it through loops. The key is to decide on the “size” of your hand-hook. In other words, how many fingers will you use to establish the sizes of the loops? For this blanket, I recommend using 3 fingers when working single crochet (sc) stitches (sts), and 2 fingers when working chain (ch) 1 at beginning (beg) of rows.
Row 1: Ch 17. Skip first ch from hook. 1 sc in next ch. 1 sc in each ch to end of chain. Turn. 16 sts.
Row 2: Ch 1. Working in back loops only, 1 sc in each st to end of row. Turn.
Row 3: Ch 1. Working in front loops only, 1 sc in each st to end of row. Turn.
Rows 4 to 17: Repeat (rep) rows 2 and 3.
Row 18: As 2nd row. Fasten off. Weave in ends.
