I do love gifting blankets! I haven't found a person yet that didn't love a crocheted blanket. I put much thought into gifting yarny goodness. It must be the right color(s) and style for that person or persons. That is key if you want to make them happy. You don't want to go to all the trouble, time and money just to have them put in a Goodwill (charity chop) pile.
I crocheted this blanket as a wedding gift in their wedding colors, which were grey and yellow.
I was very lucky as the wedding invitation had the colors on it. Even if you are not sure of the EXACT colors but have a general idea, you can make it work. There are many shades of yellow....egg yolk yellow, sun yellow, pale yellow, banana yellow and so on. The same goes for grey....silver grey, dark grey, light grey, almost black grey.
I just picked 3 colors in each color, if you know what I mean. Three shades of yellow and 3 shades of grey. That's all you need to do. It makes it so much more personal.
I have crocheted this blanket in school colors, nursery room colors, teen bedroom colors and sport team colors for boys and men. I have gifted it in 3-6 shades of someones favorite color and they come out gorgeous every time!
I have the pattern for sale in my
and Ravelry shop
Have a great week,
If you aren't sure what color or colors a person likes, think neutrals like 3-6 shades in creams, browns, greys or blacks.
