You’ll be right bonny snuggled up this winter under this lovely Blackwatch Throw. This easy planned pooling afghan pattern from Premier Yarn has a striking plaid band on a background of navy blue that would put a smile on the face of any Highlander.
Once you’ve learned the basics of planned color pooling I think this throw is a great next step. The navy, green, black and gray colors create one of the most iconic plaids, Blackwatch. The wide plaid panel catches your eye and absolutely pops next the navy on either side.
And in case you were wondering , the navy blue in the Navy Green Plaid colorway is a perfect match for Premier’s Everyday Soft Worsted Navy.
