“Gingham” comes from Malayan and means “striped”. It was usually known as a two-color pattern, and popular combinations are red and white or/and blue and white. Below, you will find two modern gingham patterns with two shades of one color. In effect, the blanket looks more interesting but still keeps its simple design. A link to free patterns is included under the photos.
