Parisian Champagne Throw

See more patterns in the home décor category.

Motifs built upon motifs create a whimsical and visually entertaining throw. Four small motifs come together, and are bordered to create a larger motif. As the squares dip slightly in the center of the side, these are left un-joined to create an open effect. The construction of this throw allows it to be a join-as-you-go that is still very portable.

Pattern Notes

Four Small Motifs are worked together and edged to create Large Motif.

When creating Large Motif there is no ch 1 worked between joined Small Motifs. This helps create the open spaces in the final throw, as no joins are worked here.
