Book Nook Tunisian Throw Crochet Pattern

I love curling up with a good book, a cozy blanket and a cup of hot cocoa. The Book Nook Tunisian Throw is that blanket! Perfect for cold winter days, fireplaces, and cuddling.

The Book Nook is a Tunisian throw that uses super bulky yarn, a super large hook, and has a 2 row repeat that works up fast. Which leaves you with more time for using it!
