So soft and comfy, great for a beginner too. The yarn makers website also had a color tool on a second version of the pattern so you can see different choices of colors before you buy your yarn. As a more experienced knitter, I only altered to pattern slightly by slipping the first stitch (slipping purlwise with yarn in front) on each row for a more finished edge. I also used a #15 needle because the yarn is so chunky. It was so much fun I will be making it again. I think my fur baby (dog in photo) may have claimed this one.

Here is the photo, I think the first attempt on the upload failed.

Although the pattern is very simple for this throw, just all garter stitch, I think it is the color combinations that really make it stand out. I don't like bright orange so the pumpkin color is more what I like. With the super bulky/super chunky yarn it should work up quickly.

This blanket made me think immediately of the beach, and that is very welcome on the second day of winter! And it couldn't be easier to make. It would be a great housewarming gift if you knew the owner's color scheme.

These fresh looking colors are so beautiful. I am one who in general does not care for orange but this has made a believer out of me! I can see this as the just right pop of color for an all white/cream room or it would be the perfect compliment in a water side cottage themed room.

I am new to knitting and so far this blanket is looking pretty good. Few questions. When changing color do you tie knot to add yarn at beginning of row and when finished untie and weave in ends? Also because this is a garter stitch on wrong side the first row of color change is showing both colors (am I doing this correctly?)

The first rule of knitting is that there are no knots in knitting, since you are changing colours at the beginning of a row, you can loop the yarn together to simply hold the end in place. There will always be a line of colour change on the wrong side of work, to ensure that you are changing on the correct side, the ends of the yarn will always be on the same side of the work. Hope this helps, happy knitting.
