The Celtic Tree of Life Throw Blanket was knit with the incredible yarn supplied by Lorna's Laces. Their Shepherd Bulky superwash in the Chocolate color way is so soft and squishy!!! It is truly amazing! You can also take this pattern and in the field (center) of the pattern you could do all the purl stitches in a different color to make the pattern pop more. The only stitches required to make this pattern are knit and purl stitches!
