Tricolor Throw

Materials

  • 2 skeins Red Heart Super Saver in Light Sage*
  • 2 skeins Red Heart Super Saver in Country Blue*
  • 2 skeins Red Heart Super Saver in Pale Yellow*
  • 12.75 mm knitting needles

Pattern

  1. With 1 strand of each color yarn held together, cast on 80 stitches.
  2. Knit first row.
  3. Purl second row.
  4. Repeat steps 2 & 3 until throw reaches desired length (mine reached a total of 120 rows).
  5. Cast off.
  6. Adding tassels:  With remaining yarn, cut 80 strands of each color between 12 and 16 inches long (I used 14 inches). Each tassel will have 1 strand of each color. Evenly distribute 40 tassels on each end of the throw–one tassel every two stitches. For instructions on how to add tassels, I followed this extremely helpful YouTube video.

*Note:  This pattern can be used with different colors or a different brand of yarn. I found that I needed approximately 240 yards of each color for this pattern.
