  1. Love that you dedicate a post to blankets for boys. As a boys-mum it sometimes really bugs me that the whole world is only into girls stuff when it comes to being creative... Is there a pattern available for the edging of the first blanket?

    1. Maree, my mom made the blanket, and she did not use a pattern. But if you want, I can ask her...

  4. Que bellas!!!
    Estoy por tejer una manta para mi hijo y estas ideas están fabulosas.
    A mí por lo general me resulta mas fácil tejer para mis niñas, mas que mi hijo ya tiene 11 años.
    Pero quiero hacer algo especial para él, así que te agradezco la inspiración :)
    Saludos y que tengas una linda semana!!!

    1. Jennifer: the border is the "Mosaic or Block stitch". I have a pattern for a scarf with that stitch here: http://lanasdeana.blogspot.com/2012/12/mosaic-scarf-pattern.html
      Just make the stitch in the border of your blanket ;-)

    1. For the first one, you need 7 colors, and will have leftover yarn
      For the second one, just a bit of every color, but 2 balls (of 100 gr) of white, which is also used for the border

  18. Hi Ana. I'm loving Chichi's version of the blanket. Do you have a pattern for it, in particular the number of chains to start, the number of rows, hook size and any other info to help me on my way? Thanks so much! Love your Blog! heather x
