These are great patterns that get away from the traditional granny square afghans (those are sometimes cool too, but…).  I’ve found that cotton is a great way to spice things up in the blanket world, I generally choose a wool or acrylic blend but the new cotton’s that are out there wear beautifully and are easy on the hands.  Try linen too!
