Cozy blankets and throws make a house feel homey and cozy! They are perfect for comforting a child (or adult) or keeping toes warm while sharing a favorite children’s book. Kids may even use them to build a fort for secret meetings and imaginary play. The throws you knit and crochet for yourself and those you love are not only home decorating accents, they also lead to special memories for years to come.

Our wonderful collection of 10 patterns are fun to recreate as we show them. Or let your imagination go a little wild and choose your own colors.
