Scandinavian Style Throw

Last year I collected “The Art of Knitting” and knitted up “The Shaker Style Throw”. This year I knitted up “The Scandinavian Style Throw” from it.

The throw was knitted up in squares and then sewn up into panels before finally being sewn up into the final throw and crocheted round.

There ended up being 14 panels….

Panel 3

Panel 4

Panel 5

Panel 6

Panel 7

Panel 8

Panel 9

Panel 10

Panel 11Panel 12

Panel 13

Panel 14

As you can tell, the squares ranged from plain garter stitch to lace and even some intarsia style squares. They were all straightforward knitting so was fun to knit whilst watching a good film. They were also knitted in acrylic yarn (which came with the magazine every fortnight) so it fully machine washable…


The most monotonous part of the throw was sewing the squares and panels together…I hate sewing up and as I didn’t get the schematic of the panels until the last issue I had to sew them together all at once. The Shaker Style Throw was sewn up every couple of months which made it more manageable and less boring..

This year I have started collecting “The Art of Crochet” and as of yet have not begun crocheting the squares…I am a totally newbie at crochet so am expecting lots of problems with the project…

If you have any handy hints or tips for crochet then please let me know as I am going to need all the help I can get…
