I'm doing this one now, in a Patons soft teal. It is beautiful and it is working up very quickly. Not at all difficult. Glad I found it. I had tried three other designs with this yarn, two knit and one crochet, and they didn't look good at all. This is just the right amount of detail. Not too simple, and not so fussy that it all gets lost in the bulky fluffiness.

A good pattern to make a winter throw. It is beautiful in the solid color because of the stitch pattern. The color teal is a good pick for color because it does remind you of fall. I would think this would work up quickly. Not a good carry along project but one to do sitting watching TV. The stitch is not difficult to do. Thank you.

This sort of peacock blue is my favorite color so I'll definitely be using the same color when I make this pretty blanket.
