I’ve been wanting to try the Red Heart Stripes yarn, so I bought 5 skeins (used 4.5) of the Favorite Stripe. While the skeins look pretty, it turned out that they are actually rainbow colors. For this blanket, I chose not to include the chain between my 3-dc clusters. Usually, I don’t add a border to my blankets, but with all of the beautiful colors I had to. I used a single crochet all the way around and then a double crochet all the at around to finish the border. It turned out so nice it’s hard to give it away, but there is always a child that needs it more than me.
