This blanket was actually meant to be a baby blanket, but I loved it so much I just made it bigger and kept it for myself. It's a thick and heavy blanket that's so perfect for snuggling into to watch a movie or read a book, which I do a lot of during the Fall/Winter. It's a super easy crochet blanket, but it feels luxurious. It would be an amazing Christmas present if you're looking for something that feels high-end, but it still has a special handmade quality to it. It does use a lot of yarn since there isn’t much in each skein, but I think that the wow-factor you get is totally worth it.
Do you love curling up with a good book, a cozy blanket and a cup of hot cocoa? Then the Book Nook Tunisian Throw is the blanket you want! Perfect for cold winter days, fireplaces, and cuddling. The Book Nook is a Tunisian throw that uses super bulky yarn, a super large hook (19/15mm Tunisian cable hook), and has a 2 row repeat that works up fast. Which leaves you with more time for using it!

This incredible Christmas blanket by Justina Kirkwood on the pictures below is the ultimate granny ripple project. It will make a really stunning present for your loves ones, for instance for your baby's first Christmas or for a Mom - to - be. The finished size is 117 cm/ 46 in x 77 cm/ 30 in.
The Fireworks Throw is a great big blanket to cozy up under and watch a movie (or fireworks). It's thick and soft, made with high-quality acrylic yarn so it's easy to wash, and the stitch pattern is so pretty! It makes a wonderful gift for the holidays or just to tell that special aunt, "Thank you". This pattern calls for a bulky weight yarn, and the one listed in the pattern says "super bulky". The yarn I used was just a little thin for a Super Bulky but either will work fine.
The There You Go Throw is a two tone join as you go blanket made of 6-inch squares - graphic, eye-catching, and so much fun to crochet! Fans of My Big Fat Greek Wedding might understand the inspiration for the name! When I was trying to come up with a name (always the hardest part!), I was talking to some friends about how it reminded me so much of Greek graphic patterns - especially the colors! - and the movie came up. My friend Terri loves it as much as I do, and we decided to quote the character Gus, who loves to explain how things are Greek (even things that aren’t), and always ends it with ”…there you go!” Much like some of Gus’s explanations, this blanket isn’t Greek, but it is join as you go (aka quick to crochet), based on the basic granny square, and ready to make in any size desired for the perfect gift or personal pick-me-up - so There You Go!
