This luxurious throw is written for sizes to cover every member of the family – the smallest size is perfect for babies, while the largest size makes a beautiful bed-top coverlet. Be sure to follow the set of numbers within the parentheses that correspond to the size you will be knitting. The size of the finished throw can be adjusted further based on the number of repeats worked. To increase or decrease the finished width of your blanket, add or subtract sets of 18 stitches to/from your original cast-on number for working extra repeats of the Hourglass Lace bracketed motif. Length may be adjusted by adding or subtracting 32-stitch vertical repeats of the Hourglass Lace chart.

Piece is worked flat from end to end.
