Tiny Stripes

Tiny Stripes is a Western Region Oddball Baby Blanket. Bailey started this cute "boy-friendly blanket" and told the knitters to use at least two colors in their four-inch section.

I had originally planned to use brighter colors, but when Tiny Stripes arrived in the mail, it was obvious they would over-power the first section. I pulled two yarns from my stash that matched Bailey's colors and added two others. I hope that other knitters continue to match at least one color from the section preceding theirs to add some continuity to the stripes.

  2. If the other knitters have matching colors in their stash, this blanket will be amazing.

  9. I totally wanted to ask that the next knitter use one of the colors from the previous section to help make each section blend a bit better. I didn't want to for fear of out being too much to ask or too many restrictions for some.
