Our throw blanket is designed to be knitted quickly on large needles, using two strands of yarn held together. This technique creates a chunkier texture and gives the blanket a lofty feel. The pattern for this sampler blanket allows you to try out different stitches, ensuring that you never get bored with the project. The throw is knitted in three long panels, which are then sewn together.

The stitch patterns used include the Stockinette Triangle Stitch, which creates rows of triangles using stockinette and reverse stockinette stitches. Slip stitch knitting is also incorporated, allowing you to move stitches from the left needle to the right needle without working them. This technique can be used to create complex patterns with minimal effort, especially when using multiple colors of yarn. We used five colors of chunky weight yarn and doubled them to achieve a soft and chunky effect. Each blanket panel measures approximately 15" wide and 60-65" long, depending on the gauge you achieve.
