Steeped Throw is a cozy blanket inspired by afternoon tea and cuddling with a good book. Simple color-blocking on mitered squares are reminiscent of tea bags steeping in a hot, comforting cup of tea.

The mix of garter stitch and stockinette stitch creates a textured look without being too complicated. This blanket also uses just three colors: a neutral color and two contrasting colors. The neutral color invites you to make this your favorite blanket, while the contrasting colors help add a pop of visual interest without being too overpowering. Knitting this calming pattern will have you yearning for your favorite cozy spot.
