random stripes

Sometimes I way over-think my patterns in striped objects, such as blankets.  I think “are they random enough, does it look naturally done?”  Well, it’s not a new thing but I’d still like to introduce everybody to the Random Stripe Generator, a script by Biscuits and Jam, that generates your stripey patterns for you.  You just type in your yarn colors, the thickness of your stripes, and how many rows you want your project to be, and voila, you have a stripey pattern!  A bonus is that if you don’t like it, you can just hit a button and it makes another one for you.  The biggest bonus?  It’s FREE.  Here’s an example:

It also gives you a written pattern, so you don’t just have the picture to go by.  I hope it’s useful for you!

    Love this! Not very experienced and don’t know how much yarn of each color to buy. Any suggestions?
