If you’re looking for something quick and easy, then this super bulky yarn throw pattern is for you. It’s mindless and can be worked up in a day or so, depending on how much time you have to crochet.
The beginning and end of the rows are worked a bit different because I wanted the edges to be straight, but I didn’t want to add an edging. I’ve included a video tutorial at the end of the written pattern in case you need it.
I chose a solid color to match my couches, but this pattern would be easy to work up cheerful or neutral stripes.

The chains made at the beginning of each row count as your first stitch made. Another stitch is worked into the first stitch for a total of 2 stitches made in the first stitch.
Then at the end of the row, a decrease is made over the last 2 stitches to maintain the stitch count. This helps to keep the edges straighter.
