The ideal winter throw, worked in knit 1, purl 1 rib in a relaxed gauge and on big needles. The stitch definition is dreamy and the simple pattern is perfect for the novice knitter. Pick it up and put it down all winter, just a few rows every day!
The throw is worked with 2 strands of yarn held together – one mohair and one worsted weight wool. Two mohair strands would also be lovely – very lofty and elegant.
Have fun planning out the high or low contrast of the yarns you use; we chose subtle contrast with solid mohair and a semi-solid wool for our second yarn. The possibilities are endless when you also add striping or color blocking.
