Indian Wrap Lap Blanket - Red, Oranges, Blue

| No Comments

Size: 35 inches x 42 inches
Colors: Skipper Blue, Orange, Tangerine, Scarlet (Red Heart Classic and Wintuk)
Pattern: Indian Wrap (with modifications)
Book: Rustic Warmth - Leaflet 2653 - Copyright 1994 - Leisure Arts
Hook: I
Date: January 2005
Adjustments to pattern: Shortened the length, used only one panel, made that panel wider, did not include fringe, added 3-row sc border in blue around the entire blanket

I was drawn to the dripping-paint-like design and the colors used in the original pattern (black, olive green, tan, deep red), but since I didn't have those colors on hand, I made use of what I had...which makes for a very bright blanket!

I didn't include the fringe because it could get caught in wheelchairs and requires grooming to keep untangled.
