These two blankets are made in the Swedish Weave technique. I did not make these; my Mother-in-law did. We took a class together to learn how to make these. I started one long ago that I have never finished. She wants to make one for each grand kid. She is playing "get caught up" at the moment. She is the mom of nine kids, so you can guess that there are a lot of grand kids already, and lots more coming all the time. These two blankets are my oldest daughter's and my littlest daughter's. The middle one is still waiting for hers because there are so many grand kids. The reason the oldest and the youngest have them and not that the middle one, wasn't that she was skipped because that didn't happen. The youngest was born right about the time we learned how to do this type of embroidery/weaving. So she got either the first or the second, one can't remember now. Now, mom is going back starting with the oldest grand kids and working her way down the list with new grand kids thrown into the mix as well. Because, if she goes the other way, the older kids keep growing and she has to make bigger blankets to cover them. This way, the blankets all stay about the same size and she gets caught up right as the next kid grows into that size of blanket; makes sense. The top right one belongs to my oldest daughter; the bottom right one belongs to my youngest daughter. My SILs pick the patterns for their kids blankets which is fine you can make sure they are all different that way. I find it more fun to just let my MIL pick what ever yarn and pattern she wants that way she can have more fun making it. Also it lets me know that it was more from her heart something she likes.
