Actually...my mom and I have made several more throws using other kinds of yarn. Just pick 8 different colors and weights that compliment each other, and you can come up with your own beautiful colorways. The throw requires approx. 100 g. per type of yarn. All of them have turned out lovely Smiley

I've never knit a blankie but your finished project has inspired me and I've been drooling over this Colinette Throw for months now.  I wanted to ask you, or anyone who's ever made this, in the pictures, the throw looks pretty lacey and flimsy.  What is the texture of the throw like when you touch it (is it scratchy mohair?  Or is it soft like the way it looks?)?  I've been thinking of making a throw for my fiance, and he thinks this looks too feminine for him but I haven't seen many finished products to know..  If anyone has a recommendation for a nice blanket pattern for a man whose favorite place in the world is the couch in front of the TV, please let me know..!  You know, the finished product does look like it's worth the cost..!

dopaminechoi I am working on a blamket at the moment that is textured red and black wool - it's really soft and thick and thin and it's red thread combined with black all in the one skein - does this make sense?!). I am not sure what it's called, but I just picked up a whole armful of skeins at the local craft shop cause it was cheap. I think the whole black and red thing would be good for Mr dopaminechoi. Also for a simple pattern I am knitting on about size 14 needles and I am knitting 3 big strips (kinda like scarves) which I will sew together when I finish. So simpole and quick!

crafty_manca Your throw is gorgeous!
