The blanket is cool, but I'm thinking the vertical lines are a bit too obvious. I'm thinking that if I were doing it, I'd take a plastic straw, and cut it into short bits--maybe 1/4 inch or half a cm long, and place these on the needles where I planned to insert the verticals. That would provide very narrow ladders, where I could add the red later. Alternately, I could work with multiple small balls of red, just knitting those particular stitches over and around the main yarn. Just a thought.

I love the look of this blanket but I agree with you chriscol, I would use small balls of red to knit the vertical stripes in place, making sure to wrap the colours around each other where they change to avoid holes. This would be much quicker than crocheting up the ladders. just my opinion.
