I couldn’t resist shooting it again when I noticed how well these blue flowers matched! We got them at a plant swap several years ago and have never discovered their proper name, so we still call them the Little Blue Flowers.

I chose several solid yarns to coordinate with the colors in a variegated yarn; what an easy way to begin planning a blanket!
Here’s the striping pattern I used: two rows pale green, one variegated, one row blue, one variegated, then two more pale green. Next a row of white. Then I just repeated them all again, and again, (2 G – V – Blu – V – 2 G) White… (2 G – V – Blu – V – 2 G ) White…
and before I knew it, the blanket was finished. Ta-da!
