This hand kitted loungeroom throw is done in giant cables using 20mm knitting needles. It is very heavy, as all of my giant knit throws; this one weighs 3.6 kg. When spread out, the pattern really stands out and as such it makes it into a gorgeous addition to any loungeroom or bedroom. I choose to make my throws using 100% acrylic which is very easy to maintain. The throws can be easily washed without having to worry whether the throw will lose its shape or shrink in size.
