“Plump cables alternate with airy openwork in Ann Regis’s weightless work of art. Surprisingly easy to knit, this light and elegant afghan features a seed-stitch border and fat, fluffy tassels, Worked with two strands of yarn and very large needles, the “Portable Throw” is deceptively simple to make. It was firs featured in the Fall ‘94 issue of Family Circle Easy Knitting”. Taken from Family Circle Easy Afghans.

Imagine yarn is an acrylic/mohair blend. 12 skeins are used in equal amounts of two colors, in this pattern Ann used #099 ecru (A) and #186 maize (B).

This pattern is rated easy for the beginner knitter.

The pattern suggests using a circular needle with a 24”/60cm cable. Also required are stitch markers and cable needle.

Tassels are optional and require an additional 2 skeins of each color.
