For my spiderman/color red obsessed son's 6th birthday I made him this awesome blanket!
I used the pattern here: http://stitchnfrog.blogspot.com/2009/07/superhero-dream-catcher-afghan.html
After the center circle, I used a pattern of 2 red then 2 blue stripes all separated by the black lines. I also slightly altered the pattern for the web strings going into the center, I used a (sl st and ch 1) for the black rows and (sl st and ch 2) for all the other rows. I absolutely love the way it turned out, I'm very proud of how this project turned out!
And, I must say, the little man approves!
