Striped blankets are a classic, but see below that they can be modern and contemporary as well.
So, you think stripes, and you think classic, traditional, and frankly a bit timeworn, to list a few. However, we’d like to show you that blankets with a striped main motif are every bit as fun and contemporary as any design. Here are some striped blankets for the summer that will get your creative muscles flexing. In spite of that, though, don’t be afraid of getting into these because they are easy and fun. Thus you will never have a dull moment, but you’ll also never become frustrated.

Rainbow Sampler Blanket
The Rainbow Sampler is easy, and perfection is not its aim. In fact it shouldn’t be perfect as that would make it lose character. You simply crochet together every distinct type of crochet stich in a sequence of rows. To wit, it’s a good idea to experiment with the rows to see which sequence of textures and colors works best for you. The instructions are general on purpose, because it’s up to you to figure out “how she goes”. As you follow this striped blanket pattern, every once in a while you may need to adjust the stitching in order to match sizes and/or weave, but that is the fun of this project
