Pattern Description:

Noro Kureyon - literally "Crayon" in Japanese - is just bursting with color. I can't help but collect the little 50g skeins whenever I run into one I love, or simply when I'm having a bad day.

This blanket has been in progress for the larger part of 3 years, but I keep coming back to it for the sheer joy of seeing the colors combine in two row stripes; like a brand new box of crayons.

Knit in strips and joined at the end, it's a portable project that's easy to pick up at any time.
