Rainbow Granny Blanket

January 31, 2018
Another year, and another set of babies who need blankets crocheted for them. I love making baby blankets! They're so much fun, and honestly, you can never have enough blankets for a new baby.

I decided to just make a giant granny square using my stash of DK yarn, and realised I had enough of all the colours of the rainbow to make a rainbow blanket! I decided to buy a new colour of dark purple for indigo, as the dark blue I had didn't look quite right, so I ended up just buying the one extra ball, but the rest was all stashed, which I'm quite proud of!

I did five rounds of each colour in normal granny square style (I always use this pattern to keep me right) with a 4mm hook. For the final violet colour, I did three rounds of granny square, one round of double crochets into each stitch (with three into each corner), and then for the border I did five treble crochets into one stitch, skip a stitch, slip stitch, skip a stitch, and then repeat to make the nice scalloped edge.

I love the colours of this, it just looks so nice with the rainbow effect! I might remake this one for future babies (there are already a couple of people pregnant at my work) as the result was so nice!
