Blue blanket 

This colour sequence is good enough for any room – and would be particularly suitable for a boy or a man. A baby soon outgrows pastel colours but these are strong enough to carry through to manhood.

The blanket is made using STYLECRAFT SPECIAL DK, and a size 4 hook, in the following colours

Duck Egg
Aspen
Teal
Sage
Storm Blue
Denim
Lobelia
Turquoise

Made in a Granny Stripe pattern – a mix of 4 and 3 rows to give variety.

I enjoyed using these colours so much they have become the first few rows of a rainbow blanket – details when it progresses somewhat further!
