This tutorial will explain how thick and thin yarn is different from other yarns and why the resulting look can result in a beautifully textured throw blanket that far exceeds those of lower quality sold for far more in stores.
While scrolling through Instagram, about 8 weeks ago, I found a more urban, more chic, but definitely equally money-savvy blogger, Reichel Broussard of Copy Cat Chic. We connected over a common love of textured textiles, swapped a few emails, and hatched a plan for me to figure out a way to mimic the look of a throw she loved but was sold for an obscene $1,000. Her focus is on finding less expensive but fabulous ways to furnish one’s home and my focus is on making less expensive but beautiful things resulted in a positively dreamy throw. Check out her Wildflower-approved site www.copycatchic.com here, and her swoon worthy Instagram here.
The first problem with her desired throw was that it appears to be woven (I never saw said blanket in person) from a very thin, to very thick yarn.
