The Foglia Cadente (Falling Leaves) Throw measures 60 inches long by 40 inches wide. I wanted a throw that has neutral yet beach like colors – thus the complementary shades of tan which also give the fabric depth. I am also intrigued by the idea of using a lace stitch with a heavy yarn. I find this throw to be warm and yet whimsical.

I picked this name in honor of my husband’s Italian roots. (Foglia Cadente means Falling Leaves.) Thanks Honey for challenging and encouraging me.
