The lights dim, the projector hums, the music swells and the movie starts...

I love going to the movies (mostly for the popcorn), but when my daughter and I get together we quote silly movie lines back and forth with each other and giggle and try to figure out to which of our favorite flicks the lines belong.


When I asked my Facebook fans to help me name this one, I received soooo many fabulous suggestions, but this movie-themed one seemed to really resonate with me!

Made with bits of I Love This Cotton from my stash, it is super quick, easy and fun to make. And the way the colors change really make my wee heart sing!

I used a lot of different colors on this one, but you can use fewer or more, and make it any size you want.

Take a peek at what Marisa, one of my fabulous testers, did with her colors...

Gorgeous, huh?! I love having color options so you can make a piece truly your own! And I love the idea of busting your stash!

This is my first design that I have used tassels, and I'm really excited about how they turned out! Best part--no weaving of pesky tails as they are incorporated into the tassels! Phew!

  1. Love the blanket, but I particularly love Marisa's colors. Is it a scarf? Are Marisa's colors and the scarf directions included in this pattern, please? Thanks, Anne

    1. The blanket pattern is for the blanket only. Marisa said she used Drops Paris yarn. It would be simple to make it as a scarf by using the included multiples to attain the length you desire and then work the repeat rows to the desired width of scarf you want.

  2. I absolutely love the vibrant colours in this and the name is perfect. As for using pesky ends as part of a tassel - what an amazing idea!!
