This is a nice blanket, great design. It’s mitered, its colorful! I love how colors play off gray. It looks like my diamond dishcloths without the loop, perhaps it is made the same way. The pattern is available for purchase on Ravelry.
I so love these diamond dishcloths! I made some up to give as gifts, and thought of this design with bright colored stripes and a different color for the hanging part. I think I will have to make up some like these for myself too…
So many stripe variations are possible….festive holiday colors could be nice too, but these bright colors are going to be hard to beat for adding cheer!
I had seen dishcloths and potholders like these before, there are quite a few variations of this general pattern. Some are sc, some dc, the vintage potholders are often double thick (I will be making some of those soon!). I think the general pattern has been around for some time, it is simple, easy to remember and practical. The ones by Apple Blossom Dreams (it was a free pattern when I made these, now it is only available for purchase) really caught my eye, they were so pretty and colorful that I just had to make some of my own.
