A cozy throw in three sizes (small/medium/large) with a distinctive pattern of curves and cables accented by eyelets, to knit in worsted weight yarn (also knit in DK with needle adjustment). Ribbed hems and cabled borders provide a classic distinctive finish to the edges. This pattern includes a size for every member of the family; the smallest one is perfect for baby, while the largest size makes a beautiful bed-top coverlet.
Please note, Hourglass is not available via Ravelry.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size.
