This sumptuous college-themed blanket was made for a fabulous young lady who’s going off to join the equestrian team at the University of Tennessee Martin. The braids are reminiscent of her show horse’s decorated mane and tail, but would make a college-bound co-ed feel snuggly as toast in their dorm room during long evenings of studying or eating popcorn and watching flicks with friends.

Knit in rich orange and royal, this blanket would do any college’s colors proud. Have three colors in your alma mater’s arsenal? Buy one skein of color #3 and do the center stripe with that. Don’t let it get out that you made this for a graduate, though, or you’ll have orders in the queue for every kid on your block.
