Rainbow of Stars Blanket
I set out on a journey when designing this blanket. I had an image in my head of exactly how I wanted it to look and I was not going to rest until I had achieved that image. And I am so pleased to say that this is exactly how I had envisaged it to be! The blanket design is inspired by my youngest star. He is in love with all things rainbow and stars at the moment - hence the colours and design.
I made the blanket in the photos using Stylecraft Special DK but it works equally as well in any weight yarn providing the same is used throughout.
I would suggest that this pattern is for crocheters with intermediate skills. The pattern provides both a UK terminology version followed by a US terminology version and includes the use of sc, dc, hdc, htr, tr, dtr, ttr, ch and slip stitch.
The pattern includes many photos for any tricky parts but it is not a step by step photo tutorial, it is a written pattern and not a chart.

A big project. Required patience and persistence but beautiful result. Amounts of wool recommended in pattern were not accurate - I was left with a lot of full skeins of wool. Pattern is quite intricate but easy after the first few triangles have been crocheted.
