Midwest Throw was inspired by a knitter at Stitches Midwest who was looking for an easy and special decorator throw for her daughter.
The single-row striped, half-brioche stitch used in my Ostrom cowls was the perfect pattern stitch.

This is extremely easy to knit and the result is a lovely two-sided fabric with obvious stripes on one side and multi-colors on the other side.
