Knit yourself a gorgeous throw to treasure over the years to come, for yourself or as a gift for that very special someone. Each square is designed to use a mini-skein of yarn, perfect for a 24-colour set. Or use up those lovely leftovers you’ve been saving and create a memory blanket of all your favourites. Alternately you could make a monochromatic version with your favourite colour; the options for you to express your creativity are endless. Designed for 24 colours, the Radvent Throw could easily be made larger or smaller to suit you.
A geometric lace motif is worked in each square that join together to create diamond patterning.
Each square is knit centre-out, working in the round and joined together with a simple crochet join, see the tutorial here.
The pattern includes both charted and written instructions.
