This bright and happy rainbow blanket will add cheer to your day!
Make one for a new baby, as a lap blanket or to give to a friend that needs a boost.
I have designed it to be easy to follow, so it is beginner friendly and I give you the colour recipe and amounts of yarn you will need, some of my testers managed to use up their scraps as it doesn’t take up too much of each colour.
There is a photo tutorial included to help you make the bobble pom poms which are crocheted as you make the blanket and therefore won’t shed or fall off.
124g dk yarn, I used stylecraft special dk
Cloud blue 12g
2 stitch markers
Finished blanket measures approx 46 x 71cm (18 x 28 inches), ideal for a baby blanket or lap blanket.
16st and 9 rows in tr to 10cm/4in using 4mm hook or size needed to obtain tension. Pattern will work if tension is not exactly the same but size may vary.
I have also made this CHUNKY version!
