The early stages of this throw can be seen in the pictures up above when I cast on and knit a few rows while a passenger on our drive through Montana last fall. I cast on 300 stitches then continued to pick up beautiful yarns along the way. I kept things uncomplicated so I’d still be able to see the scenery and chose a very simple Knit 2/Purl 2 ribbed pattern. No right side or wrong side and it just kept growing and changing as I’d run out of one skein and add another.
It grew and grew and by late October it filled my lap with warmth. By the end of December I was fully enveloped as I knit the final row. Each section is approximately one skein, but I occasionally split the color up to give more interest to the stripes. It’s toasty warm, holds memories of our trip and adds a wonderful texture to my winter living room.
