Fringed Throw, Lap Warmer Afghan Blanket (Wedding Gift for Newlywed Couple)

This hand knit, home decor, fringed throw afghan blanket design is a luxury lap warmer for two. You custom select from a wide range of colors, so it makes the perfect, personalized wedding gift for newlywed couples! You can choose their favorite hues, or match their home decor or favorite sports team (I've got tons of colors, so let your imagination soar).

SPECIAL VALUE: I'm introducing this top quality, 240.00 value blanket at a limited time, 45.00 discount and I'm including shipping at no charge to my customers because I'm so excited to share this new design!

The images here were captured by the talented, fun and delightful Ashley of Ashley Mae Photography in Logan, Utah. Ashley writes about the blanket, "I was so impressed when I saw it, it's beautiful - the colors are PERRRFECT.! You have such a unique talent. Love how you put colors together!!"

I use 3 strands of strong, durable yarn for the base (shown here in flecked cream beige, please let me know which colors you'd like for the base of the throw I design specifically for you).

Then I add one foot of thick, beautiful fringe on each end. The fringe shown includes wet bark browns, cottony creams, deep earth, new grass & olive greens, moss, golden amber, wildfire charcoals and so much more. Again, feel free to ask me to customize for you!

This richly textured throw blanket is warm without being suffocating and is the perfect size to snuggle a person or couple of any size (5.5 feet long including fringe x 3 feet wide to start; it's very elastic because of the special stitch I used, so it easily stretches to 6 feet wide).

I originally designed it for a photographer to use in her portrait photography business, although it would look lovely in any home. When laid long wise, it easily covers the width of a queen sized bed, so it makes a lovely warmer at the foot of the bed in a guest bedroom or in any room of the house.

As with most of my work, please just let me know if you'd like yours a little different; custom orders & special requests are welcome and I generally can make a design more heavy or lightweight, wider or thinner, shorter or longer, use different colors, etc.

My designs are exceptional quality and a great value; this piece is strong and durable for everyday use for many years.

Only soft, designer, vintage or novelty yarns (vegan). No allergenic animal fibers.

Designed & knit in the clean, fresh, high desert air in the heart of Grand Canyon country, USA (no cigarette, perfume or pet odors)

My standard shipping is to anywhere in the world. I ship to U.S. customers via 2-3 day USPS Priority Mail & to international customers via first class.

Hand wash in cool water with mild soap. Resist wringing to dry. Dry flat.
