Granny Over the Rainbow Blanket by Melu Crochet

This blanket is made from two of the crocheting world’s favourite things- grannies and rainbows! It is the latest in my Rainbow range which I have designed to be fun to make, and easily adapted you your own colour scheme. It uses treble crochet throughout with a lovely bobble stitch edging (because I just love a bobble stitch!)

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!

There are lots of photos included to help you as you go and a Melu Crochet Bobble Stitch guide photo tutorial.
