There aren't very many knit throw patterns I like, but I really like the way this one looks using the bulky yarn and I really love the colors chosen for this blanket. It seems like it would work up really quickly since it is a bulky weight yarn. I want to make one for my couch.

I love the colors on this pattern! It's like neopolitan ice cream or something! I'm definitely adding this to my to-make list.

This is a pretty throw pattern made with super bulky/super chunky yarn and big needles. Just to clarify on what it says for ssk, you don't completely pass the stitches back onto the left needle, just put the tip of the left needle through the front loops, then knit both back loops together (makes a decrease). Lots of online video tutes if you need to see it done.

I love this pattern and want to do it but are the quantities shown correct? I.e. 12 x 300g balls of yarn?

Yes, they would be because 300g of this yarn is only 64 yards per ball. I know this is late, hope it helps someone. Happy knitting.
