The diagonal is my default pattern these days. I can whip up a pretty decent sized blanket so quickly, it’s scary! I made this one with six rows of each color. As I recall, the border was two rows of SC, one row of trebles (I think) and two rows of SC. I’ll just have to try it again!
I made this blanket for my auntie’s 98th birthday. She loved it! I used Red Heart Soft yarn.
