Melu Crochet: OmbRainbow Blanket

Woohoo it’s arrived! I’ve been so excited since Hobbii asked me if I want to try out their rainbow bamboo yarn that I have fully planned it out, including pattern, colour recipe and name!!! 

Let’s see if it all goes to plan…🌈😁

There are 40 colours to choose from, I chose these because I want to do an ombré rainbow (OmbRainbow- see what I did there?!)- so excited about it because the yarn is 4ply I’m going to hold two strands together and because it is breathable and regulates temperature it is ideal for a spring/summer baby blanket. First impressions are good- it looks a bit shiny and feels very soft, I can’t wait to get started!!!

I have chosen the following Hobbii Rainbow Bamboo colours (L to R): 

Steel grey 06

Dusty Rose 17

Lilac sweet Pea 33

Uniform Blue 36

Curry 20

Dusty Pine 38

Burnt terracotta 22

Dusty Pink Velvet 29

Almond 03

The OmBrainbow Blanket pattern is now available in my Etsy Shop, on the Hobbii website, in my Ribblr shop and my LoveCrafts Shop.

And here is my new little puppy Ernie, helping me to unwrap!

First few rounds:

I am excited about how well the colours are blending together and the weight of the yarn is much heavier than I am used to, which is going to give the blanket a much different drape than when using acrylic yarn.

The green and the blue have blended so well that it’s hard to see where they meet!

The Curry and Burnt Terracotta colours have really changed the look of the blanket, I really like how bright they are.

Nearly finished now, the drape really is beautiful.

Finished! you can see the colour changes on the bobble pom poms quite clearly here!

The OmBrainbow Blanket pattern is now available in my Etsy Shop and my LoveCrafts Shop.

Thank you to Hobbii for this amazing yarn!
