The Hudson's Bay Company was founded in Canada in the 1600's and still endures today. With its iconic colours (and its more modern, turn of the new millennium, grey-scale) it's "stripe spotting" branding is known worldwide. For my blanket I opted to use the grey-scale as it fits nicely with the colour scheme I plan to use in my little boys room. The pattern would also look wonderful in the vintage HBC colours! Give it a go!!! If you make one please share a picture; I would love to see it!

"If you get tired or frustrated with creating a blanket in rows and turning the whole things around, you’re going to love this pattern. The Hudson blanket is just a bunch of different hexagons in different colors and they’re each made separately. It’s much faster and easier to whip up a stack of smaller shapes than to work on a large blanket. Once all the hexies were made, all I had to do was seam them all together. That step does take a bit longer, but it’s an easy task to do and goes by quickly."
Secondly, this VERY vintage ripple blanket is an absolute gem. It will indisputably, help you build that maison-de-grand-mère spirit in your home. Moreover, this will be a great classic touch in a modern home as well, not just in a quaint 300 year old cottage.
