4 Plus 1

This is my 4 plus 1 little blanket i am making.
I wanted to know how many different flowers could i make using just 4 colours, I came up with 24 different flowers. This is my formula.

Blue = 1
purple = 2
yellow = 3
pink = 4
plus 1 border colour.

each flower has 4 colours and they will be represented by numbers. this is the formula.




4 3 1 2
4 1 2 3
3 4 1 2
2 3 4 1

1 4 2 4
1 4 3 2
2 1 4 3
3 2 1 4

4 1 3 2
2 4 3 1
1 2 4 3
3 1 2 4

2 1 3 4
2 3 1 4
4 2 3 1
1 4 2 3

4 1 3 2
2 4 1 3
3 2 4 1
1 3 2 4

2 1 3 4
4 2 1 3
3 4 2 1
1 3 4 2

This is just with 4 colours, imaging how many with 5 or even 6 colours per flower, or block number, the amount of variations is even greater.

  1. Love the colours and the pattern of your flowers. It's amazing to see the variety with just four colours.
    Thank you for stopping by my blog. I have just taken a look through yours, very lovely! I was most surprised to see your cat eating out of a large tub of cat food as we store our cat food the same way (even with the small cup) and my cat loves to get into it.
    Have a lovely day

  3. they are very pretty, its amazing how just a few colours can make a design, much better than a lot of colours, which can look messy
