My take on the super versatile, stash-busting pinwheel blanket!
I added a ruffled edge like bluesmom, without the picot edging, and I really like the result.  It's simple, washable, and pretty thick since I used 2 strands held tog for both the pink and green parts.







(The photos are a little dark, as it's all rainy here, but the colors are basically the same.)

Thanks!   Smiley
The blanket is about 2.5 feet in diameter, with the ruffle being only about an inch or inch and a half at most (it's hard to measure that part).  I was so happy to use up the rest of a Pound of Love that my sweet, sweet husband bought about 3 years ago, lol.
