Chevron Blanket and Embroidery Hoop

This chevron, ripple blanket was a joy to make.  It makes think of spring, flowers, hearts, and all things colorful and pretty.

Five colors were used to complete the blanket to coordinate a customized embroidery hoop with the little girl's name. 

light blue (7 rows)light grey (5 rows) green       (10 rows)light pink   (12 rows)hot pink     (15 rows)

The blanket measures 34in long (86.36cm) x 26in wide (66cm).
