At a glance, this Sandy Dunes design look like Oreos haha. But they are sandy dunes granny squares in colors similar to Oreo biscuits.

I like the blanket, it reminds of Oreo cookies, if you care for colors change them

ugly colors for a baby blanket

Hi Ann, These dark colors could look great for a little boy's nursery, but you can easily choose different colors of the yarn specified - in this case, Lion Brand Heartland, and make this to your liking. :) Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns
