Honey Peaks throw is the perfect blanket for those cold winter days, when all you need is a cup of tea with some honey, book or a crochet project and a great view of snowy mountains out of your window. This throw is worked up quick thanks to the bulky yarn while it is far from ordinary thanks to the combination of Tunisian crochet stitches.
