Verdant Stripes

Here is my latest venture with colors.

Now I am sort of comfortable with knitting. I just love complimenting the knitted blankets with some pretty crocheted border. The colors for this blanket are really refreshing. I first thought the brighter green are too bright but they actually bring out the pastels beautifully.

This is the same pattern I used for the Midnight Hues blanket . The edging however is a picot border.
