This is a blanket inspired by the hydrangea plant. Using two simple stitches, you work up a project with a complicated looking surface that appear much more complex than it actually is. The hydrangea blanket is a real boon for all fans of striped blankets or throws. You can alternate color every other row, switch colors between a joining rows, or even make the whole blanket in a single hue. Happy crocheting! A ink to the free pattern is at the end of the post.
