Pattern Description:

The Mandarin Fish (Synchiropus splendidus) is one of the most beautiful fish found in the Pacific Ocean. While its colourfully striped body displays undulating lines of orange, blue and green, we've added a few extra bright colours to this striped blanket / play rug.

Worked in a wonderfully practical, chunky yarn, it's not only a delight of colour but a quick knit as well. Knit as shown or create your own glorious colour combinations!
