Alternating garter and stockinette stitch in worsted weight yarn make an elegant blanket, bordered with a cabled knot edging. Meditative to make with a challenging twist, the Stornaway Throw is sure to become an heirloom for your home.


Filten Stornoway är en enkel och elegant filt inspirerad av keltiska knutar och mönster. Den stickas i ett fylligt garn. Mitten stickas först i en utdragen mosstickning. Därefter plockar man upp maskor runt hela filten och stickar kanten med flätmönster med kortvarv.

Some words from previous knitters:

“Also, just wanted you to know that the Stornoway Throw is the most beautiful pattern I have seen. I bought the Knit Picks book solely for this pattern. Debi”

“I LOVE the Stornoway Throw…”

“I look forward to seeing your new designs and admiring the same with wonderment and awe!”

Errata: For the early (2015) and printed versions of the pattern ONLY! Despite all the thorough checking by me and several other persons before publishing, there are a couple of small errors in two of the charts. :

Throw chart: For lines 4, 6, 8, 10, the dots should be for stitches 10, 11, 12 and 13.

Corner chart: Lines 84, 86 and 88 should be the same as line 2.
