These are the traditional colors of Christmas but now the Poinsettia can be found in more than the traditional red. At my house I fancy the white or pale pink/red ones. This would be the perfect afghan to make to honor the colors of Poinsettia that I display during the holiday.

This vintage Christmas Poinsettia throw is really very striking. The design uses the elements of combining squares and stripes to make the whole thrown and then the flower design is cross stitched on the stripes. This is the ultimate take and go project. If you hurry, there is no reason this will not be ready for this Christmas season.
