I’m planning on making each of my grandparents a blanket for Christmas this year. I’ve spent the past week finding a pattern that my parents and I both liked and picking out yarn. I’m probably going to place my order tonight, but I wanted to make a post in case anyone would like to make this pattern and would like different potential color combinations.The image above is a screenshot I took from the pattern and then made so you could fill in each individual section. You should just be able to save it and do that if you wanna, but I’m not sure.
The pattern is the Prairie Star pattern and I think it’s really nice. There are other color selections that people have on that page, but I thought I’d share the ones I came up with.  All of the colors that I used are for Red Heart Super Saver yarn and I will also list the approximate balls per color that would be needed. Please note I don’t even have the yarn yet, so these are just rough color approximations and I can’t speak for how the pattern is. Please make sure to look at the pattern before you make this, especially if you are using a different brand of yarn. The amount of yarn listed in the pattern is in ounces, so make sure to convert as needed.
