Throw blankets are a must in every home. Whether the throw is used as decoration or for warmth, you should always have one lying around in your home. And if you don't, it's time that you do! This Beach House Knit Throw Pattern is the perfect year-round throw blanket. If you're spending your summer nights outside, use this blanket to shield you from the chilly air. If you're staying inside on a winter day, this knit throw will keep you warm and cozy. You'll love using this throw blanket as much as you'll enjoy knitting it!

Notes:
• Blanket is worked back and forth in rows on circular needles to accommodate the large number of stitches, do not join.
• Carry A along the side of throw and twist around B, C or D every 2 rows to prevent holes in work.
