This looks like a great pattern for a simple throw. I think you need a bit of texture when you are using a solid color and this pattern has it. I can never have too many throws. Just a different throw over the couch can change the look of a room. Also I am known for giving them away if a friend really likes the throw. I have to be working on something all the time and this will be my next something. Thank you.

I like the shade of brown used in this mini throw. I love everything brown around me so this mini throw is no exception. This shade of brown will look great in a scarf, cowl, or poncho. Sooo beautiful. Cheers!

I made this Super Quick Mudslide Mini Throw for a friend for Christmas. It was absolutely beautiful. The pattern is well written and easy to follow. It works up quick, (I made the larger one), and it is lacy and cozy, and looks so pretty draped on her couch. I will definitely be making more of these for family and friends, and of course, myself.
