Designed by the talented Brenda Lewis, this gorgeous throw will give your spot a more welcoming vibe. The pattern comes in a single size and measures approximately 43 inches wide and about 58 inches long. If you prefer using metric units the width is about 109 cm and roughly 147 cm in length.

Using Red Heart’s Super Saver Yarn, a soft and gorgeous worsted weight yarn that contains 100% acrylic, perfect for making stunning blankets like this one we’re making. The resulting pieces are both soft and incredibly durable.

You will also need a size US10 knitting needle. That is a 6 mm needle if you are using the metric system. A good cable needle is also required to make the cable details in this throw blanket. This Caspian Options cable needle is fantastic for this task and is highly recommended.

Furthermore, you will be employing the yo knitting increase as well as the ssk and k2tog knitting decreases when making this project. The open yarnover increase or yo is a stand-alone increase created by wrapping the yarn over the right needle between two stitches.

If you want to learn how to do the yo increase, we have a fully illustrated tutorial that you’ll surely find helpful. Find this tutorial here: Learn the Open Yarnover Increase (YO).

The ssk and k2tog are both methods of reducing your number of working stitches. Ssk stands for slip one, slip one, knit two together. You can find a tutorial for this here: Basic Left-Slanting Decrease (SSK).

Often paired with the ssk, the k2tog is a basic right-slanting decrease. It stands for knitting two stitches together and is probably the easiest method of reducing stitches in your project.

You can learn how to do the k2tog using the detailed, step-by-step tutorial that we’ve created. You can find it here: Basic Right-Slanting Decrease (K2tog).
