DESCRIPTION
The Taos Lap Blanket was inspired by the beautiful shapes and woven fabrics in the southwest, particularly in the city of Taos, an artist’s haven in New Mexico’s high desert. This throw is the perfect size for the lap both on the couch and in the car, and makes an excellent gift for a winter baby.

This pattern is part of the “Purposeful Patterns” initiative - a series of designs benefiting a variety of causes. $1 from the sale of each Taos Lap Blanket pattern will be donated to Partnership With Native Americans, a nonprofit organization committed to championing hope for a brighter future for Native Americans living on remote, isolated and impoverished reservations. PWNA is the only Native-serving charity to work on 60 reservations year-round.

This pattern is part of a collaboration with Lion Brand Yarn Company using their Wool-Ease Thick & Quick yarn. To purchase a kit please visit their site here.
