The idea for the Geo Throw Blanket came from wanting to make my son a throw blanket that he would love. It’s so easy to find something for girls or babies, but it’s a little more challenging to find designs for boys/men. The goal was to make a blanket that wasn’t too girly that incorporated his favorite colors, red and black, and so the Geo Throw Blanket was born. The yarn used for this blanket is Hobbii Twister Solid in white, gray, red, and black, 3 skeins each. Each skein is 437 yards, so the total is approx 3,933 yards. Hobbii Twister Solid is a sport weight yarn and I used a 2.75mm hook. You can use any yarn and any hook size to make this pattern; you just keep going until you reach the desired size of the blanket.
