This is a simple lace sampler throw. It's a really quick knit--I averaged a section an evening--and it’s an easy introduction to lace knitting for newbies.
Gauge is not super important for this, as it is a lacey, drapey, stretchy blanket. If you hold it up from the top edge, it drapes long, and if you hold it up on the side edge, it drapes wider. If you throw it over your lap, it drapes exactly the way you want!
I used Araucania Patagonia, which was donated by Haus of Yarn in Nashville, TN, in five different colors that make me think of coral reefs in the sea. The knitting patterns I chose remind me of fishnets, especially using this variegated, thick-thin cotton yarn. If you don't have Patagonia, any aran weight or light chunky yarn will work fine.
The yarn label recommends needle size 8 - 10 U.S./5 - 6 mm, which gives you lots of room to experiment with what works best for you. I used #9 needles, smack-dab in the middle, size-wise.
The blanket in the pictures has been donated to Alive Hospice through Threads of Kindness.
Finished size: 33 inches x 36 inches
525 yards aran or light chunky weight yarn (105 yards each of five different colors)
