Annnnnnd Joann Stores will give one winner all they need to make this exact throw blanket including a special holiday surprise gift. Head on over to my Instagram (@designsbyphanessa) for more details and enter the giveaway!

Have you tried Bernat Velvet Yarn? It's so soft and squishy! And just for additional texture, I also used the Bernat Symphony. I love the colors in the Symphony. There's so many to chose from! It was definitely hard to choose. I must have spent way too long inside Joann's suffocating from my face mask. Don't worry, I made it out okay lol.


I picked the Royal color with the Symphony and then looked for matching colors in the Velvet. I wanted to use mostly velvet because it's so soft and it's just the type of squishy I want to curl up with while binge watching Netflix.
