1. Granny Stripe Blanket Crochet Pattern

Hey, crocheters! Here’s a color-choosing hack for you, but first, let’s take a look at the blanket below. Can you see that there’s one neutral color used in every second row? When you do that, all the other colors (no matter how crazy!) will look well-balanced. That’s because they are not side by side, and the neutral hue ties them all together. Clever!
