This throw really doesn't have anything to do with bubblegum, except that's what the colors remind me of. My 15-year-old daughter picked out the colors and pattern, and helped me crochet it for her room. Her bottom bunk is a double bed that flips up into a couch... and her bedspread (shown) and curtains have some of these same colors. It is made of the cotton yarn that I am enjoying working with so much. I just finished it this weekend. I thought it turned out really cute!
