Alternate ideas for this blanket pattern


My wonderful pattern tester Danita came up with this striped version:


Using the same pattern as above change colors on these rows alternating between a variegated and a solid:

3 rows variegated, 4 solid, 2 variegated, 3 solid, 4 variegated, 3 solid, 2 variegated, 4 solid, 3 variegated. 
 

 
Using a smaller hook (g hook) and 3 ply yarn you can also create a 12 inch blanket which is perfect for 15-18 week kits, NOTE: These blankets should be done in UNISEX colors for this size.
