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?
