Casting on…. A Traditional Throw

I mentioned a while ago that I purchased a custom lot of skeins to make a blanket out of.

My colour inspiration for the custom order. Glorious Autumn !!

I have FINALLY found the blanket i’m going to knit with it.

A Traditional Throw from Ravelry.com. You can see the pattern HERE There have been many different patterns that I have considered but I wanted it to look simple, to be quite elegant and just warm and snuggly. I was tempted to make different mitred squares or different styles of knitted squares and add them together but I thought that it would look fussy. I want the emphasis to be on the WOOL and not on the pattern its self. Does that make sense?

This is a photo from ravelry showing the throw that I plan to make.

I don’t like the stripes though, again I want the emphasis to be on the beautiful yarn and not on anything else so I think i’ll just leave them sections as cream coloured yarn.

I’ll update you as I go…..
