That is so pretty I love the colors. Make sure you post this in the star blanket crochet along too, they'll love to see it there too.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

Great blanket!

I've been wanting to make a thin striped one for a while...how many rounds are each of your thin stripes? 1? 2? I keep trying thin stripes and either ending up too thick, or looking like a zipper when I change colours... :/

Anyway, yours looks great!

each stripe is one round... i used a 6.5 hook which i believe is bigger than the pattern calls for, so maybe that helps them make a little thicker?
