 I was inspired by the trend for Natural dyes and colors when I Designed this Lap Blanket. I wanted to use two Earth tone colors and this is what I came up with.  It is very basic since I used The Wonderful Garter Stitch but I added a little detail when you change colors just to spice it up.  That being said I have a friend who is knitting it and she chose Bright colors and it looks great.

Last year I designed The Ezy Log Cabin Blanket/Throw and I was asked many times to do a Baby Blanket Version so I Designed one with Berroco Modern Cotton. Now I am offering one using Malabrigo Rios a wonderful Pure Merino Super wash. My inspiration was the Pennsylvania Dutch Amish Quilts.  I love their bold geometric patterns and dynamic color combinations.  My Pattern can be PURCHASED on RAVELRY
