My friend Joe sent me this picture and I'd like to recreate the pattern and make another blanket, but I can't figure out what stitch the blue part is done in.  Huh Can anyone tell?
Thanks so much!

It's hard to tell from the picture, but it kind of looks like the blue stripe might actually be knitted.  The top and bottom of it look like a garter stitch border you would work into a piece to keep it from curling.

This is totally going to make me nuts.

It looks like it could also have some Tunisian crochet. There's a lot of vertical bars in it.

I can't imagine trying to figure it all out from a picture.

I sew, crochet, bead, make natural toys for kitties, and so much more.

I agree, it's hard to tell by the photos.  My immediate gut instinct is that you can create something similar, if not exact by utilizing a popcorn stitch for the puffier stitches (with maybe 3 or 4 dc instead of 5) and utilizing front post (or back post depending on if you're a lefty or righty) stitches for the slant-like stitches on the flatter part of the blue strip.  Again, this is gut instinct, haven't tested this, but it's worth giving it a try in a swatch.

I think there's more than one stitch in that blue section. There are some openwork rows that look like they could be something like "dc-chain1-skip1" (and actually there are rows like that in the red section too). There's also a section that looks like either popcorn stitch or maybe crossed doubles. And at the top and bottom of that section there are areas that look like another kind of crossed stitches - maybe scs. If you could get a clearer picture - maybe with the blanket laying flat - I think it would be easier to figure out what those stitches are.

I hope that helps.
