This Cuddly Buffalo Check Baby Blanket could be used not for baby but would make for a lovely afghan displayed on the living room sofa especially if your house color motif is red or black. I like the red and black together but probably not as a baby blanket. I want baby blankets with vibrant colors to stimulate eye movement and brain activity. Cheers.

I believe that there is a mistake in the graph of this pattern. On row 5, starting at ST 22 the pattern is red, black, black, black. I think it should be black, red, black, black. That would make it match the other side.
