The hottest fashion trend

Caroline Haskings, writing for The Outline, describing the dataviz of annual average temperatures:

Not sure about the avoidable part in 2018, but indeed this pattern looks very good. So good in fact, that I saw another great use for this kind of pattern, just this week on kottke.org: blankets.

According to climate scientist (and crocheter) Ellie Highwood, these blankets are a subset of temperature blankets” made to represent, for example, daily temperatures over the course of a year in a particular location.

I can see this become a — sad, tragic — fashion trend for other things: phone cases, socks, window blinds, ties, &c. The pattern looks that good.
