I finished this Aran Nosegay Throw the other day.  It is a wedding gift.  I foudn the pattern at Red Heart.  I used Woolese yarn (Lion Brand) in 'fisherman' color.  The pattern did have a few tiny mistakes that were easy to catch and fix.  It went together quick and was easy to do.  The fringe was probable the worst of it all.

I'm impress!
I'm not a fan of crochet stuff cause most of the time it shrinks or it just doesn't look good.
But this one, I must say that first I absolutely love it, it is so well done I can't believe you did this with your hands and a crochet (and I guess a lot of threads)
Second I like the corn ears did they mean that you wish a lot of money for the couple?
If it is that makes this gift really cool to me, I wish someone wiil have this idea for my mariage!
I like the shape of it, and the way you finished it, I think it is very classy.
Can you tell me since when you're making crochet? Cause I want to try it now!

The quality of yard has a lot to do with how it washes.  This one was made with Loin Brand Woolese yarn that is 20% wool.  I used 21 skeins of the yarn.  The picture of it all laid out flat is after I washed it.  It can be dried in the dryer but I choose to dry it flat the first time to block it.

I don't know the meaning of the boquets, my boys kept saying it looked like wheat and you said corn so who really knows!  

I wanted something plain and classy so it will go with anything the couple decides to decorate with.  I do hope they love it.  It is almost big enought to cover a queen sized bed but it is just a throw to snuggle under.  

I got the pattern (called Aran Nosegay Throw) from redheart.com.  I tried to link the pattern but their web site is down at the moment.
