This cozy throw was designed for my sweet son, Nicholas, and his darling wife, Sasha. I used one of my favorite knitting techniques, Entrelac, a knitted fabric that looks woven. Make one for yourself or a loved one, and cuddle up!

The pattern is written as a throw, but would be easy to adapt to a different size.

For the sample, I used a combination of Volcan (6 hanks), Glitter (5 hanks), and Chircas (5 hanks). I cast on with Volcan and worked until the first skein ended, not worrying about changing color in the middle of a row. I then switched to Glitter and worked until that skein ended. And then I switched to Chircas and worked until that skein ended. I repeated the order of colors until I had one skein of Volcan remaining. I had 24 grams of Volcan left after working the optional crocheted edging.

You can mix colors as I did, or simply work with one variegated color.
