An illustrated tutorial for a simple linen throw with a crocheted edge.
Hello friends, is spring slowly creeping into your part of the world (unless you’re in the southern hemisphere and then I guess you’re heading into fall)? For all intents and purposes, we have had a mild winter here in the southeastern part of the U.S. That being said, it’s always a good thing for one season to head out the door and a new one to be ushered in.
I’m all about creating cozy in the fall and winter months, as my big chunky throw. However, I’m not keen on all those heavy blankets lying around my home in the spring and summer so I end up stashing them away for a couple of months.
But there are times in the spring and early summer when I find myself needing some kind of throw to cover my legs, even in these warmer months. It’s no secret that I have a penchant for linen, so when I spied a linen throw on one of my favorite websites, I had no choice but to follow that call.
And while I specifically made this as a throw to cover my legs on a cool spring or summer evening, I realized that this linen throw has many uses.
It is also a great throw for the foot of a bed during the spring and summer, especially if you want to swap out a heavier throw for a lighter linen throw during the warmer months.
Need a quick table cloth for a card table? This is the perfect size!
I opted to skip the fancy crochet edge and keep my linen throw very simple, so simple that someone who has never crocheted before can do this. Trust me. With a few practice passes of the simple single crochet stitch, you’ll be ready to crochet this edge on your piece of linen to create your own linen throw.
I’ve made a couple of videos to help if you need it.
So let’s talk about linen for a minute. Try to get a 100% linen fabric, which comes in a variety of colors. With the 100% linen, the fibers will react the same when washed. I was able to find 100% linen priced from $9.99 per yard up to $16.99 per yard.

And that’s all it takes to make your own linen throw with a crochet edge. I’m heading back to the fabric store this week to pick up a pretty green/blue linen to make one of these for my bed.
If you’re looking to get a head start on Mother’s Day or need a house warming gift, a linen throw would make a great option.
