Fifty Shades of Grey Throw

By: Bobbi Anderson for Red Heart
Fifty Shades of Grey Throw

When some knitters see a knit blanket pattern, they see a nearly impossible task. While it's true that knitting a blanket can take quite a lot of time and effort, it can be quite a fun task if you have the right pattern. The Fifty Shades of Grey Throw combines simplicity with beauty to create a nice knitted blanket that can be used to not only keep you warm but also to decorate. Drape your Fifty Shades of Grey Throw across the back of a couch or lay it across the end of your bed to add a new element to the room. Your guests will wonder where you got it. They will hardly be able to believe you knit it yourself! Knit mostly using garter stitch knitting, this is one easy blanket knitting pattern you won't mind casting on.

This is a variation on the classic corner knit or diagonal knit blanket pattern. One thing I noticed was the instructions use the abbreviation "skp" for slip 1, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over. I am more used to "s1k1psso" as an abbreviation for that. Just wanted to point that out, skp looks a lot like skip.

Thank You.....I was getting confused. The Blanket looks absolutely divine.... couldn't resist the pattern!
