Add some bobbles to your rainbow! This cheerful blanket has been designed to be simple and relaxing to make, but look amazing! The bobbly texture adds a 3D element that is tactile and sensory.
Make one for a new baby, as a lap blanket or for your new puppy like I did!
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.
There is a photo tutorial included to help you with the bobble stitch which is crocheted as you make the blanket and therefore won’t shed or fall off.
365g aran yarn,
I used Deramores anti pilling aran:
Colour A 80g Cream,
Colour B 35g Azalea,
Colour C 40g Aster,
Colour D 45g Cyan,
Colour E 50g Fern,
Colour F 55g Pineapple,
Colour G 60g Cinnamon
2 stitch markers
Stylecraft Special Aran is an alternative yarn to use, in the picture above I have colour matched the following Stylecraft colours:
66 x 81cm (26 x 32 inches)
12st and 7 rows in dc to 10cm/4in using 5.5mm hook or size needed to obtain tension. Pattern will work if tension is not exactly the same but size may vary.
Save for later:
