Anyway, this blanket has been in the works since April 2012. It started when I was playing around with some left over yarn from my Penguins Hat. I was inspired by the blanket in the "Twin Ta Da" post on the BunnyMummy Blog. She made two small baby blankets for twins but I just love the striking look of the white bordering all of that color.
She made her blankets using Stylecraft Special DK. I honestly went out and bought a whole bunch of colors to start to make it but got impatient while waiting for the yarn and pulled out the left overs from my hat.
|First look at all of the original colors|
After some work, I got impatient and started to put together some sections. When I really counted out how many blocks I had, I realized that my blanket wasn't going to be very big. So more colors were added again, this time a Mint Green, a Magenta, a Sapphire Blue and a Cinnamon.
|Lots and Lots of White!|
|And the back of the blanket.|
I did a thicker border for this blanket. I did a round of single crochet (US), two rounds of double crochet (US) and a 10 stitch scallop pattern.
|Love the Scallops|
