6-Day Kid Blankets by Bekki from Quirky Mama Creations
This lovely cherry blanket is one of my favorite versions of 6 Day Kid Blanket. Rows of granny stitches and double crochets are visibly divided, thanks to three shades of pink and delicate cream, but colors are not the only thing that caught my attention – just look at this elephant!
Adding applique to baby blankets is a great idea, and Bekki definitely knows how to do it. Her creations are beautiful examples of how to combine colors and shapes together.
Another two examples of Bekki’s great usage of applique feature a skunk and a unicorn. In the top photo you can see a fun way of changing colors, which users called “a snowflake effect”. If you change the colors between the rows of granny stitches, you achieve a fun scalloped look!

6-Day Kid Blanket by Marfanical (Abbey)
A fun way to create really unexpected color flow is to alternate two multicolored yarns. It works really beautifully if you want to achieve complex color changes. Another way to achieve that is to choose a colorway that is like a rainbow – this version by Abbey is a great example.

Edging is the last step on the way to creating lovely baby blanket, and it’s one of the most important steps! This blanket combines simple stitches with openwork of granny, so pom-pom edging fits here naturally. It mimics the clusters of granny stitch and looks great.
