Giant Umaro Throw

My Christmas gift for my mom this year was a giant lacy throw. The pattern is Umaro by Jared Flood and it’s not quite as intimidating as it looks. It’s knit in Berroco Comfort, an acrylic/nylon blend which is both soft and easy to care for.

The stitch pattern is pretty easy to memorize. I used an entire 10 skein bag of yarn for a blanket that’s slightly smaller than a queen-sized mattress. The yarn is a little splitty, and it was pretty difficult to weave the ends in and have them stay. I think if I did this pattern again I’d pick something with enough wool content to splice new skeins in. I did 13 pattern repeats horizontally and 10 vertically.

I’d definitely knit this pattern again, but I’m not sure I’m gonna be doing something that big any time soon!

Hey! Want more?
