Navy/Cream Small Throw


I bought the yarn used here with an entirely different project in mind. I quickly realized two things. A) I hadn’t bought nearly enough for that project, and B) the original project was going to end up being way too expensive with this yarn. I’m still excited about creating that original pattern and I’m still planning on doing it, but in a more affordable fashion. Until then, I came up with this smaller blanket that would be great as a lap throw, travel blanket, or even a play mat/blanket for baby.

Blanket measures 42″ x 46″.
