Unique Oblique Rainbow Bobble Blanket by Melu Crochet

This fun blanket has been designed to be easy to make, with as few ends as possible. It is a corner to corner design, meaning that you work from one corner of the blanket diagonally up to the opposite corner.

Soft and cuddly Kind Feather yarn has been used to make colourful diagonal bobble stripes against a grey background.

There are no holes in this blanket, which makes it a great choice for those with little fingers and toes! The bobbles add texture and a tactile element for babies and children.

The size is 76 (width) x 91cm (30 x 36 inches) which makes it perfect for a baby/toddler or to make it as a lap blanket. 

There are full instructions on how you make the bobbles provided in the pattern.

I have used a rainbow colour palette but you can choose any colours you like! How about an autumnal rainbow?

or a colour changing yarn?
