This reminds me of a weather blanket I made. One color for every 10 degrees of temperature difference. Like red for 90 to 100 orange for 80 to 90

This simple and sweet blanket pattern could be made in whatever color combinations you like, or you could turn it into a baby yarn stash buster for all those odds and ends left over from other baby knitting projects. I like the garter stitch on the border to help keep the stockinette stitch from rolling up on the edges.
