I am blanket obsessed lately. But, hey, tis the season for snuggling, right?! What could be better than getting cozy under a warm blanket that reminds you of the charming flowers of warmer weather?! So let me introduce the Mariposa Throw. I named it this because of the single stemmed 3-petaled Mariposa Lily that grows on rocky slopes of the mountains of the West. Add a rainbow of colors and it cheers any space, but you could easily work it in shades that match your decor and suit your style. The rectangles might look challenging, but they are actually quite simple to construct, and the abundance of texture makes the flowers pop up like they have bloomed. The chevron-like arrangement of the motifs is pretty nifty, too! Color, texture, options, unique. Because there are oodles of pictures, the skill level is probably deemed appropriate for an intermediate crocheter.

The detailed intermediate 19-page pattern includes:
--sections detailing yarn quantities and colors, stitch abbreviations, special stitches, notes, and joining instructions
--50 pictures with detailed descriptions
--a color placement diagram to assist you with putting it all together

This pattern has been thoroughly tested and edited for errors and clarity.
