Geometric Eyelet Throw - Free Knit Pattern

For those of you that are looking for another holiday idea - voila! The geometric pattern and straight lines make for a subtle design with amazing texture. We are using Patons Alpaca blend yarn so this is super soft and cuddly. This eyelet stitch has become very popular recently and is surprisingly easy to work up. As long as you get the hang of left and right side decreases, you'll cruise right through. But don't worry, we've also included a video tutorial on how to do that if you need a little help. I settled into netflix and it was ready in no time! Enjoy!





Pattern Notes:

Eyelets make this throw pop! Layer on a warm Alpaca blend yarn and this makes for one cozy and beautiful throw. Once you get a sense of the pattern repeat you will cruise right through the pattern. There is a How-To on Left & Right tilt decrease below. Enjoy!
