Help! I have got this far with baby blanket and not sure what to do next. I need to do about a third again size wise. All grey? Or grey then one stripe of each colour again? Or something else? Suggestions please!

It's gorgeous, but TBH I'm not keen on the gray - it doesn't seem to relate to any of the other colours.

Personally, I'd frog the gray out completely and then either reverse the colours until I ended on the red, or start again with the red and end on the dark blue. The second way would have one band less than the first way.

Thanks Polycorn- that is the beauty of crochet I can just pull out the grey! Yes I might try reversing the colours the original plan I think - or working back through but don't like purple next to red so much.

What looks like dark blue there is actually purple

If the grey is easy to remove, i agree, work back through thd rainbow, violet -red.
Beautiful blanket. What a lucky baby.

I have no clue what you should do next but that is an absolutely wonderful baby blanket!

It’s beautiful! Maybe some sunshiney yellow would be nice? But I’m no good with crochet, I can knit but crochet and me aren’t friends!

So, what did you do in the end, Arcadia?

I am also keen to see an update. If you are still undecided I would go with repeating the pattern of colours once frogging back to purple

Wow! That's lovely!

Looks lovely, well done

Gosh. Can I ask what pattern you used. I’m currently doing this. Not nearly as pretty.

Moreisnnogedag Wed 04-Apr-18 19:05:41

Oh wow that's beautiful. I have serious envy! What pattern is that? (I'm kidding myself, my ravelry is full to the brim with knitting patterns and I can't crochet)

This makes me want to learn to crochet. It’s gorgeous OP!

PepsiMaximum Wed 04-Apr-18 19:07:40

How much would you charge for that? I love it smile

Polycorn Wed 04-Apr-18 19:10:42

Oh it's lovely! The colours totally sing together. <jealous smile>

Beautiful blanket OP.

Beautiful! A good decision to pull out the grey.

RavenLG Wed 04-Apr-18 19:16:40

WOAH! I'm loving the finished article! I really want to get into crafts like this but I'm so untalented!

Arcadia Wed 04-Apr-18 19:23:42

I might consider selling it as not currently needed!

Arcadia Wed 04-Apr-18 19:24:10

Thanks for the feedback surprised by all the responses shocksmile

Really simple pattern on YouTube which I will try and link for you. Slightly hyper Canadian woman but I found her quite endearing. You need to watch out for the different terminology and i also had to do back to front as am left handed! Colours are easy - stylecraft special Dk.
