willoWisp Throw – free knitting pattern
Hi all! Sorry for the skipped pattern last week. I got so busy and before I knew it the week was gone and there was no free pattern up. eep! I have decided to extend my little free pattern series into the first week of the new year so that there will still be 14 free patterns and I don’t have to kill myself trying to get 2 patterns out this week.
On to this week’s pattern… willoWisp Throw. This is the second blanket I have worked on in the past few weeks and I really love it. It is a wispy (hence the name) beautiful throw with a very simple ‘bar’ design that is repeated across the whole thing. This project knits up quick on size 19 needles and is very affordable (I paid $9/hank at my lys. That’s only $18 for the whole project!!). It is made with Kramer Yarns’ Fountain Hill Brushed Mohair, which I am totally in love with by the way! It’s affordable *and* beautiful, can’t go wrong with that. There is 590 yards of yarn in each hank which is why I was able to complete this project with only 2 hanks. I have already started work on a sweater pattern using the leftover yarn from this project. :D
