  1. I am a new crocheter and have been looking for a pattern to make a throw with the OSU block “O”. This looks perfect but I don’t know how to interpret the chart to a pattern to follow. Please help!!

    Thanks,

    • Welcome to hooking! Following color charts is a handy skill to have as a crocheter.

      I’m left handed, so I will explain how I do it, but if you are right handed, just switch “left” for “right” in all of the following.

      Start by chaining one more stitch than the chart calls for. For example, if the chart is 20 wide by 25 tall, chain 21. Sc in each stitch across. To change colors, draw up a loop in the previous color, yarn over with the new color and draw through. Change colors where the chart indicates. Crochet over the yarn you aren’t using (when you draw up loops in your stitches, lay the unused yarn over the stitch. It will be “captured” in the fabric when you are done.)

      This is the easiest technique for doing color work in crochet. It’s called “tapestry crochet,” and there is more thorough reference material available if you want to look it up.

      I hope this helps!

      • Thanks! This helps. So, since I want to make a throw for my grandson, so I do just single crochets for the entire throw changing colors where the chart indicates?

        Lots of questions! Sorry!

      • Questions are fine! Glad you are taking an interest!

        I would do this in blocks. Depending on how big you want it, I’d do it with a J hook and do 7 or 8 blocks wide and 9 or 10 blocks tall. IF you wanted a smaller blanket, make fewer blocks. :) I might also do some one white and some on red, changing out the colors accordingly to make it more visually interesting.

        Hope this helps.
