When is an afghan an afghan? And when is it a throw? It's all about the size. We like a little throw for our lap or our shoulders, while an afghan's made to curl up under—and not always alone! This one's a scaled-up version of Pam Reece's crocheted baby blanket. The handsome, nostalgic stitch is at home in any decor.
Throw: 40 x 48"/102 x 122cm.
Afghan: 50 x 60"/127 x 152cm.
