This classic plaid throw is knit using the reversible, “Double-knit” technique making each side a mirror-image of the other. With Double-knit there is no wrong side since both layers are knit at the same time. This pattern is perfect for intermediate knitters or adventurous advanced beginners wanting to learn a new technique.
Just Plaid is a timeless, modern classic that is sure to be your favorite couch companion and a family treasure. Select two sharply contrasting colors which results in an beautiful, original throw.
Throw is worked flat, back and forth in rows. Once you finish your last stitch you are finished, no weaving and no sewing.
