A gorgeous cosy throw.

My favourite knitting projects have pretty details . . preferably some eyelets :) with rhythm and flow to the repeats. Something that holds my attention but that doesn’t require super focus.

The lace pattern I’ve used in Contemporarily, can be found in the wonderful Treasury of Knitting Patterns by Barbara Walker. It’s worked over 8 rows with a mixture of yo’s, ssk’s and k2tog’s to form the pretty pattern.

When I was a less discerning yarn purchaser I frequently bought just one or 2 skeins in colours I loved, then didn’t know what to do with.

Contemporarily was a way to address some of those skeins and is a great pattern for using up whatever you have by doubling or tripling up lighter weights.

For each 16 row section, I used approx 55g yarn held to the equivalent of bulky weight.
(I used one skein of Bulky, quite a few of Worsted / Aran (held double) and one of Sport Weight (held triple.

The pattern can be adapted to the length and width of your own taste / requirements.
