Melu Crochet: Rainbow Bobble Name Blanket

Enjoy this customisable pattern to make something beautiful and unique that’ll be truly treasured by the baby or child you’ve made it for. It’s a gorgeous new baby gift, and something they’ll keep with them as they grow up.

Customisable Rainbow Name Blanket! This download will enable you to make as many different baby name blankets as you like.

You can easily personalise your work using my customisable bobble blanket design to make something truly unique – your creation will be a perfect new baby gift. Using my template, you’ll create your own name chart so that you can add any name to this beautiful rainbow blanket design.

By cutting and pasting letters onto the ready-made template, your chosen baby name will be created easily. You then follow the chart and the bobble stitches will reveal the baby’s name.

The bobbles not only show the name, but they’re also a fantastic tactile element for both babies and children. You’ll be provided with full instructions on how to make the bobble stitches, as well as full instructions on how to create the rainbow part of the blanket.

This was a very easy to read and navigate pattern. Loved how it came out. I was a bit intimidated by the bobble name part but was easy peasy. 😊
