​When we found this pattern, Lori messaged immediately and said she wanted to create this throw. Here are a few details about this throw.

Most of the throw is crafted using the Tunisian net stitch, with added bobbles on a base of Tunisian simple stitch for a textured effect. 

To prevent curling, a Tunisian honeycomb stitch border is incorporated. The throw begins at the bottom border and concludes with the top border.

The side borders are picked up and worked on, and the finishing touch involves a round of standard double crochet using a regular hook. So you will need your standard crochet hook to finish their throw.

Lori used some really soft colors and her throw turned out beautiful. She loved the pattern.

I simply took it slowly and over a few weeks, and I am in love with the colors. I used more of a cream color instead of white because, for some reason, I end up getting white things dirty.

It employs an Entrelac style, worked one square at a time from the top down, with squares joined by picking up stitches from previously worked ones.

The circumference measurements range from 15 inches (38 cm) for extra small to 20 inches (51 cm) for large. 

The pattern is suitable for utilizing leftover double knitting weight yarn, and if using a single color, one 100g ball (approximately 322 yards/295 meters) is recommended. 

Tunisian knit and purl stitches, along with regular crochet stitches for the brim, are used, and construction diagrams are provided for both left- and right-handed individuals. Basic stitch instructions are included in the Abbreviations section.
