Ruched Throw

I finally got to weaving in my loose-ends! I finished up right after Christmas. I love this throw! I cuddle up in it every night on the couch. It's sooo soft and comfy and actually really warm.


Here's a detail of the stitches. It's all knit and so easy. It's just that one row of increase, shortly followed by a row of decreases continued through the pattern that makes the beautiful 'ruched' texture.


Pattern Source: "Ruched Throw," pattern based out of the book Hand Knits for the Home
Yarn: Lana Grossa, Soffice, it's 62% Merino, 10% Cashmere and 28% Acrylic - the 10% cashmere makes a world of difference
Needles: 8s

That looks gorgeous, and so warm and cozy. My knitting is going slow right now so I've got nothing to add to my blog!

Oooooh so pretty! What a great yarn snuggle in, too;)

I have never knit a throw- this makes me rethink that idea!

The pattern would make a sweet baby blanket, wouldn't it? It sounds easy to downsize.
