I like the subdued colors of this Sunscape Throw. Very pleasant to the eyes and very relaxing. I like how the pastels were mixed together to come up with a very calming throw project.

Just an FYI, your link for the Sunscape throw does not work -(

Thank you for bringing that to our attention. The pattern is actually written in full, so we do not need that link out anymore.

I was able to open it.

This is one I recently finished..it works up quickly, & using 2 strands of Caron Simply Soft makes it feel really snuggly. Rarely do I make the same afghan twice but this one I just might.
