Rainbow Joy Blanket
The Rainbow Joy blanket captures everything we love about color. Colors are best when they are together. The more, the merrier! Use every color of the rainbow to bring joy to yourself or someone else who would be lucky to receive this blanket as a gift. Gift it along with some beach towel clips for blanket fort-building delight for children of all ages.
These are classic 3.5 inch (9 cm) granny squares with an easy twist to make them more solid with smaller holes than the traditional granny square. An ombre gradient border completes the soothing look. If you use the recommended Lily Sugar ‘n Cream or Peaches & Creme cotton yarn, this blanket is therapeutically heavy, yet breathable.
This is a beginner pattern that requires only chain, slip stitch, single crochet, and double crochet stitches. Pattern is written in US terms and includes explanations of all stitches and abbreviations. US and metric measurements given.
