Bold Patch Throw
I was inspired by the Pennsylvania Dutch Amish Quilts when I designed this throw. I love their geometric patterns and the wonderful color blocking that is indicative of their work. This project starts with a center panel that has three different colors worked in a stripe pattern. You than pick up stitches for each side panel and work in s stripe pattern as well. This is a easy and quick knit and fun as well.
I used Cascade Ecological Wool & Cascade ECO+ yarn (1 skien of each of the three colors-437 to 475 yrds per hank) and I highly recommend these yarns. They come in tones of beautiful colors and I totally enjoyed knitting with it and if that’s not enough it’s hand washable.
I used a 11 US needle which gave me an extremely soft garment and made the knitting time fly by.
