Colour ManagementColour 1 (C1) is the link colour that works between all the other colours. Colour 2 (C2), Colour 3 (C3), Colour 4 (C4) and Colour 5 (C5) will feature the flanked stripes and middle wedge throughout the blanket.
Yarn Quantity****4 skeins of C1.2 skeins each of C2, C3, C4 and C5.Grand Total: 12 skeins.
Size & ResizingFinished size (before blocking): 36” (92cm) wide by 49” (125cm) high.
To make the blanket wider, simply add an even number of stitches at cast on. To make the blanket longer, keep going until you reach your desired length. In both cases this will require more yarn, therefore keep an extra skein of each colour handy.
