The Auri Throw

I love this blanket! I’ve used mine so much. It’s great for when you don’t need a ton of weight or warmth. Just heavy enough to actually keep you warm but not too heavy to be easily moved around so you can stay warm wherever you are!

You can cover your lap while cuddled up on the sofa or wrap it around your arms like a shawl. It’s a great blanket to keep in the car too! Wonderful for waiting in line at school!

I loved making this throw. It goes quickly and has a fun, easy to memorize repeat.

As always, you can pick up an ad-free PDF of this pattern on Ravelry

• DESCRIPTION: This lightweight blanket is perfect for snuggling up on the sofa. It’s not too heavy and uses a lacy stitch that will let you catch a bit of breeze to keep you from getting hot. It is made from a super soft yarn that has the texture of Alpaca yarn but isn’t made with animal fibers. This is probably my favorite project I’ve designed. I would have made it bigger but I ran out of yarn.

It’s a generous size but isn’t too large. It’s a great sofa throw and will keep your knees warm while keeping your arms free. Or snuggle into it to keep your arms warm. Drape it over your shoulders to keep your back warm. There are so many ways to use it.

• GAUGE & SIZING: Gauge (tension) isn’t very important in this project but will affect final size and yardage. For reference, my gauge is 6 V stitches and 9 rows per 4″.
Play around with hook sizes until you find one that makes a fabric you like. This pattern is written to produce a throw that is roughly 52 inches by 56 inches.

• ABBREVIATIONS & STITCHES USED:
ch = chain
st = stitch
sp = space

  • * = repeat what is between the asterisks the indicated number of times
    DC = Double Crochet

    V stitch = (DC, ch 1 DC)

About 1920 yards (7 skeins) of Feels Like Alpaca in the color Teal or any #3 yarn.
