Melu Crochet: Over the Rainbobble Blanket

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.

My Over the Rainbobble Blanket is now available in my Etsy shop, my LoveCrafts shop and buy now on Ravelry

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.
