So many designs are perfectly timeless, a statement that is especially true of this beautiful throw. Initially featured in the Fall 2008 issue, we couldn’t resist bringing this beauty back for you to enjoy. Just as lovely as in the first publication, this pattern is perfect for adapting to any size you like, from scarves and tops to different sized throws—and more!
