Handmade Holiday Textured Throw

Now is the time to make the beautifully textured throw you've been promising a family member, special friend (or yourself!). In this comprehensive technique class, you will learn the basics of cables, stitch patterns, reading charted patterns, how to lay out your squares and create borders to complement them. Choose traditional creamy white for your holiday design, or try red and green or blue and white combinations to suit your fancy. You can choose your size -- 6 squares can make a lovely table runner, baby play mat, stroller blanket or lap throw; 9 squares would make a gorgeous afghan or blanket.
