"Wild Like The Wind" Throw Blanket

A few weeks ago, I bought this yarn, Wild Flower Winds, at Hobby Lobby on clearance sale for a $1.24 per skein (regular $3.99 per skein). Each skein has 252 yards.  I loved the color combo and decided to make a throw blanket.  I used 5 skeins.

This was a fun and easy pattern design, even for a beginner.  The finished blanket measures approximately 38" x 50".  You may use a different #4 worsted weight yarn brand, just note that the size may vary some.

  1. Do you keep an email list to send updates?
    I know I can follow on G+ but I sometimes have problems getting in there...I'd love to follow you if you keep an email list...please add my email to that list if you have one.
    And thank you again for so freely sharing with us. Rest assured, I would NEVER claim your designs as my own - it really angers me when I have seen others claim patterns that I know were designed by someone else - and am not shy about letting them know it - and usually write to the designer to let her know that "so and so" has used YOUR pictures and YOUR pattern and claimed she designed.
    I have a conscience and could never steal from anyone who has so willingly shared! (or anyone for that matter!) I had a strict Christian upbringing - and thank my parents (and the Lord!) for that!
