I went all out with texture and bobbles for my latest pattern, the Granny Bobblina Rainbow blanket! As you have probably noticed I am in a rainbow stage at the moment and I am really enjoying the shape and colour combinations. This lovely blanket combines granny clusters and the bobble stitch, all curving around a cheerful rainbow.
Make one for a new baby, as a lap blanket or for a sleepy car journey!
My testers have thoroughly checked the pattern and have helped me to make it easy to read and understand. It is an intermediate level pattern, beginners may find the it a bit tricky but as long as you concentrate on the stitch counts you’ll be fine!
I give you the colour recipe and amounts of yarn you will need for both aran and dk yarn.
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.
5.5mm hook (If using a different yarn, use a hook that is 0.5 mm larger than that recommended for the yarn)
Each letter represents a ‘colour’, I have given the general colours so that you can substitute for your own yarn choices. I have also given the Stylecraft Special Aran yarn colours that I used when making my blanket which is a 100% acrylic yarn:
|‘COLOUR’||Colour||Approximate Amount||Stylecraft Special Aran colours used|
|F||Light Pink||41g||Pale Rose|
105cm x 74cm (41½ x 29 inches)
If you would like to use DK yarn instead of aran you will need to use a 4.5mm hook and the following amounts:
|‘COLOUR’||Approximate Amount||Stylecraft Special DK colours used|
This will give you a smaller blanket that measures approximately 71cm x 46cm (28 x 18 inches)
Save for later:
