This is a CAL blanket that has been initiated last week on March 2 (see timeline below) by the talented designer Pippin Poppycock. Representing Arizona, it uses colors typical of traditional Native American blankets.
The pattern is composed of seven colors, five gradients and one each of a shadow and contrast color. The patter is greatly enhanced by the gradient colors that blend into one another in a very specific way, and this is further framed by the shadow and contrast colors that help define the pattern. Part 1 was released March 2, last part will be released April 20.

Part One: The center panel is made up of 8 filled granny squares and combined in a diamond fashion. The authors wanted this to be symbolic of the Native American symbol for the medicine man.
