Alison picked a great, soft palette for the sample we photographed but this pattern is so easy to customize with any colors you’d like! Change colors every two rows, use just two colors to stripe all the way or pick a palette of subtly shifting colors for an ombre effect from one end to the other. The options are nearly endless!

    I did a small sample of the forest path crocheted blanket. At the end of rows five, six, seven and eight do you dc in the spaces formed by the clusters or an individual stitch ( if I can identify it)? Thanks.

Kindest regards, Linda
