I spent last autumn working on a Flower blankie for my unborn son. I've now been contacted by Thiliblooms on ravelry on how I made my colourscheme for this blanket. She is using less colours than I did so I made a special coloursheme for her 5 colours.
This is how my blanket turned out:
This is my colourscheme for my blanket who has 8 colours:
I actually think that the blankets featured on ravelry who hasn't got a repetition to them are the best ones but I do think it requires less colours and a bit more effort in putting them together. I also think it helps to have colours that are a bit more similar in brightness and stuff like that. And also I just couln't bare the thought of making all the flowers seperately and then having to put them together. After all this blanket features aproximately crochetet flowers!
