Anthology is a weighty, bookish word, full of literary gravitas. It comes from two Greek words: “anthos” which means “flower”; and “logia” which means “collection”, or “gathering”.
A gathering of flowers.
It’s a beautiful way to think of how we collect stories, poems, and songs, and anything else important to us. And it’s a beautiful name for this exuberant throw, with its gardenful of colours and textures. Designed to use a set of 24 fingering minis or scraps, the Anthology Throw would also look incredible in a gradient set.
The Anthology Throw is a circular, Pi-inspired project, big and versatile enough to work as a blanket or a generous wrap. Drape it over the couch for epic snuggle sessions or double it up into an extra-cosy shawl. Its sheer scale may seem daunting, but trust me, it’s so easy and comforting to make! Just knit, knit, knit in a circle, with eyelet rounds for increases and interest and a simple chevron lace border.
