Monochrome blankets are elegant, but may sometimes seem a little bland. Multicolored blankets are fun, but may be a bit loud for some occasions. Stripy blankets are a good middle ground, especially if the stripes are not too garish. A blanket with several stripes is also very elegant with a splash of fun, but does not require lost of expensive colorful yarns, so you can make the decorations using yarns that you have at home. See below for two examples of striped blanket projects that will be great for these times.

After the Storm Baby Blanket Free Crochet Pattern

Like it says on the box, this is a blanket that’s perfect after the storm. The storm is over, at least here, the rain’s finished, but it’s still a bit cool, so you need to wrap baby up snugly. This diagonally-striped blanket is a beautiful, slightly thicker baby cover, with a wonderful edge and border. It shows an interesting application of the C2C stitch, and is not too much of a challenge. This will definitely be a great baby blanket, but you could also make it larger and have it for yourself.
