The Mandarin Fish (Synchiropus splendidus) is one of the most beautiful fish found in the Pacific Ocean. While its colourfully striped body displays undulating lines of orange, blue and green, we’ve added a few extra bright colours to this striped blanket / play rug.

Worked in a wonderfully practical, chunky yarn, it’s not only a delight of colour but a quick knit as well. Knit as shown or create your own glorious colour combinations!

Companion Pattern
The Marching Bunnies Hat pattern (sized from infant to adult) is a companion piece. These two designs are variations on a theme with the blanket using a more textured version of the stitch pattern.
With one skein of each of the recommended yarn colours, there is enough yarn to make the blanket and at least one hat.

This pattern was originally published in 2009 as the Striped Blanket / Play Rug with Bonus Hat under our Cranberry Ocean Knits label.
