5. Arabian Nights Blanket

Far East is all about vibrant colors, so no wonder this version is called Arabian Nights, right? I’m a big fan of this colorway, because it starts off with yellows and reds, and ends with deep deep blues. If you are using ombre yarn and not individual colors, remember that the outer stripes of color will be getting slimmer and slimmer the bigger your blanket is.
