If you want a huggable throw that makes a stunning decorative statement, you’ve found it.

All it takes is two contrasting shades of yarn, one solid and one color-transitioning. Then, relax while you knit a blanket that looks complicated even though it is easy.

The color work comes from using a simple slip stitch method on one side and stress-free garter stitch on the other.

You will knit each row with only one color of yarn, so there is no worry about having to knit with two yarns at the same time. The blanket is reversible. Both sides are unique and beautiful.

Recommended: Use a wool/nylon blend to give your blanket a bouncy, squishy feel to make an irresistible cuddle-buddy to wrap you, a baby, or a loved-one in peace and calm.

What you need to know before knitting your throw:

How to cast on using a two-color, long-tail cast on, how to knit, how to purl, how to slip stitch, how to yarn forward, how to bind off using a sewn bind-off, and how to weave in ends. Directions for cast on and bind off are given in the pattern.
