Not so Square Throw




This time last year I was knitting a throw for my friend's wedding. She was my best friend throughout middle school and high school, and we have remained friends all these years, even though our lives have taken us in different directions... I wanted to give her something from my heart, but I also wanted to challenge myself a bit. I searched for the perfect pattern and finally, in an old Lion Brand catalog I found something called the Artful Elegance Afghan. Now they call it something else, I don't remember what, but I bought the pattern download, bought me some yarn and got busy. When all was said and done, I had made a gift that I recently learned my friend actually went and just had framed to hang in her entryway of her new home. I am too touched for words.


So here, no longer having to be called the Super Secret Wedding Gift, is what I call the Not So Square Throw. I highly recommend this pattern to anyone who wants a bit more of a challenge, but no so much to be discouraged, if they are kinda new to knitting...

  1. Me too. I'm kinda itching to start another one, but I have SO many projects going right now I think I need to finish a few first. I do already have all the yarn I need, however. lol I bought it after I made this one, because I loved it so much.
