FREE PATTERN - Handspun Knit Throw

Ooo oo ooooo! 

I am drooling over this heavenly piece of work.

This is a feature piece knitted by me, especially to showcase just how beautiful our range of handspun yarn really is.

It's also quite deceiving with how much you need.

This pattern has 4 skeins, each skein is approximately 200m in length.

I could stare at those skeins all day long.

After a quick bit of knitting to get a gauge swatch I set up my 6.00mm Lykke Interchangeable tips and my 100cm cord and started knitting.

I love its rule-breaking randomness. You could have the neatest cast on ever, but it doesn't care! Due to the nature of handspun, it has its own personality and won't be told.

I have featured a garter stitch border, stocking stitch and a few rows of garter stitch, placed randomly to remind you that not everything has to be perfect and symmetrical.
