I just finished making this and can't wait to make more! It was very easy to do! I got the cones of Peaches and Cream at Walmart for a little more than $6, but the only solid colors were white and beige. I would like to find some other solid colors! Anyone know where to purchase. I did a search online, but most of them were $15+! This took a little more than 2 cones.
I can't figure out how to put my photo here as it is on my pc and the button is asking for an http address.
So if you want to see it, you can go to my blog!

Oooooooh, I really like that. I'm ready for a new project - would be a nice Christmas gift for my MIL.
Great job and thanks for sharing!

Beautiful! I love a zig zag or ripple stitch anyway. Never thought of making a throw with Peaches and Cream.

Very nice job! I know my local Michaels sells either the peaches n cram or the sugar n cream in larger sizes for around $6, but I haven't seen any cones. Maybe try an ebay search?:thumbsup:

Your throw looks wonderful!
Here's (http://www.elmore-pisgah.com/) the link for Peaches and Creme. I highly recommend ordering directly from them. I did so in March, and my order came very quickly.

Lovely throw. I read the pattern and have a question. Did you have to with two treads throughout the project?

You can do it with one strand and smaller needles, but it'll make a smaller throw. Knitting with 2 ends of yarn isn't hard.
