This bulky weight Sandstone Throw is easy to work, and extra cozy to curl up under!
I know I have said this before, but I love working with bulky and super bulky weight yarns. Not only to the mean that your project works up quicker, but they also mean that your end project is extra warm and cozy.
Every year I like to work a couple of blankets in a super bulky weight yarn. The earth tones in this Caron Sprinke Cake yarn reminded me of the sandstone on the beaches around my childhood home.

This blanket is easy to work – if you are a fan of slip stitches as I am. I will confess though, that when worked with the larger hook and bulky yarn, the slip stitches are not as hard to work as they would be otherwise.
This blanket is easily customizable. As there is no required stitch multiple, if you would like to change the size of your blanket, you can simply chain the desired number of chains for your foundation chain, and then work the blanket to the length you desire.
I hope you enjoy it!

- Pattern is written in American English terms.
- Pattern is worked in rows.
- Ch 1 at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch.
- Weave in ends as needed.
Row 1: Sl st in the second ch from hook and in each ch across. Turn. (124 sl sts)
Row 2: Ch 1, working in the blo, sl st in each stitch across. Turn. (124 sts)
Row 3: Ch 1, working in the flo, sl st in each st across. Turn. (124 sts)
Continue to repeat rows 2 and 3 until throw measures approximately 56 inches or the desired length. Fasten off, weave in ends.
To make tassels, cut 16 in lengths of yarn. I used three strands of yarn for each tassel. Place tassels along the two ends of the throw beginning in the first stitch and then continuing in every second stitch. Once all tassels are attached, trim tassels to make an even fringe.
