This nearly square throw blanket is a fast and cozy knit, worked in an easy-to-remember alternating 1x1 rib stitch, and inspired by the ancient travertine and brick walls that still stand along the western edge of old city Istanbul.
Stripes border the beginning and end, with alternating ombre and stripe sections filling the middle field. I-cords neatly enclose the sides as the throw is worked. Note that Galatea yarn is quite soft and flexible, so dimensions may vary..

About Urth Yarns:
All our collections are crafted meticulously by the hands of talented women in our Mersin and Istanbul studios. We also strive to create means to employ as many as we can through our sample-making program. In a world of machinery and mass production, the passionate, skillful, and most importantly human touch of these women maintains the authenticity, sincerity, and responsibility that Urth as a brand stands for.
In our mission to sustain and give back, we have partnered with Trees for the Future, helping them keep the planet clean and green by making sure our business is a means to that goal. Thanks to this vital collaboration, the sale of each skein of Urth Yarns plants a tree as part of the #knitoneplantone movement.
The feeling of comfort, warmth, and safety brought by a strand of wool, a soothing meditation through the calm practice of hand crafts, motivates us day after day while driving us to work tirelessly to create designs that reflect the beauty of our planet.
