Easy Planned Pooling Afghan | Premier Everyday Plaid

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.

  1. Looking for a knitting pattern for the plaid tartan blanket

  2. I have been working with Everyday plaid tartan in the black/grey/red I have spent countless hours on trying to make the buffalo throw. I have followed the instructions and have also watched your video on the Blackwatch Throw and followed ir to the T and it will not work. My yarn has 4 colors except one of the colors is only 1 stitch. Can you please try using that yarn in particular to see if it works? Thanks in advance for your assistance.
