Glad you like it Bev.   I used the pattern found here:

Red Heart Two Panel Bias Knit Blanket | Yarnspirations

They sell a kit with 3 shades of the new O'Gos yarns, but I just used yarn that was already in my (overflowing) baskets.   The pattern itself is free.

You are exactly right, you increase on both edges until you get the width you want, then you increase on one edge, but decrease on the other.  When you have the length you want, you decrease on both edges to make the last corner.   For the 2nd panel, you start the same (increase on both edges), but this time you swap the increase and decrease sides, so you will get a mirror-image of the stripes, then you do the decrease just as you did before.  

It really is an easy pattern because it is all in garter stitch.  I just knit slowly, so I wasn't able to finish the pattern in time for the end of the month.   It might take me most of March to actually finish it, but I hope not since I have lots of fun things planned for the March theme.

Good luck if you try this ... you are a better knitter than I am, so yours will be stunning, I'm sure.

Thanks so much for the info, Sharon. I will try very hard to keep it in my head on my to do list, as I would REALLY like to try it......Sadly, I am not a fast knitter, either.

Thank you very much for hosting so well in February Gloria!

Here's 5 pairs of stash busting striped hand warmers.......I have more to add but no picture yet as it's a driech day here so the light is poor.

Beautiful creations, Karen!  They look so soft and warm and I love the blues :))) ... xo

LOVELY handwarmers, Karen...great colours....something for everyone.  :))

Five more children with warm hands :))

Left overs use here making stripes from nothing for my 51st completed blanket, teamed with some red crepe and bordered by a good friend Bev P.

Wow!Love this blanket!This must take so much time to do...Well done!

It's knit is 5 strips/panels from left to right.   I must admit it does take longer to knit the stripe sections, and I had to force myself to sew the ends in after every 'square'.   To make the length correct, and help firm the whole blanket up, I knit across both ends too. Thanks for the compliment X

WOW Karen, this is gorgeous!!  All your stripes go so perfectly with those awesome red squares.  Thanks to Bev P for that fab red border that ties it all together so beautifully.

Your blanket is a very welcome bright spot in my driech day here.  I had to google that word, btw ... haha ... xo

Thanks ladies -  every day is a school day!!

WOW!! This is a STUNNING blanket, Karen....the red just brings it all together and really makes everything POP!!

Great collaboration with your friend, Bev.
