"A lovely unisex baby blanket pattern with a lot of texture! Using the front and back post double crochet stitches as well as the faux knit stitch for the border. Video stitch tutorial included on the website to help with the stitches. Made with the Lion Brand Mandala yarn which is a lovely gradient self-striping yarn. Could be made with any size yarn and is easily customizable to any size blanket. A nice and easy repetitive stitch pattern."

I made this with another Mandala colorway, and the colors ARE gorgeous, and it was easy to wind the second and third balls so that the gradient was preserved, but I didn't like the overall texture - the yarn is so fine that it deserved a smaller hook but it was a baby gift and I didn't have time to pull it all out and start over (adjusting stitch counts and probably needing an additional skein). I'll use the yarn again, but with smaller hook.

The colors of this blanket are just stunning! That gradient look really does look like the changing colors at dawn or dusk. The instructions are easy to follow although I would change the original Row 1 to a Foundation Double Crochet instead. If youre not familiar with the Faux Knit Stitch, shes included a nice video tutorial (I watched it anyway). I use this stitch to finish hats as its quick and decorative.

I would love to have the Mandala Unicorn colorway as a full size blanket for the bed! Every time I go out to buy my Mandala, I am in a daze as I stare at the colors, and it is always so tough to choose. I usually pick something that speaks to me at that moment. Then I say to myself- okay, next project I wanna try THAT color, THEN that one, and so on and so forth.

I think what caught my eye was the edging on these. It's just a perfect finish. This is such an easy design that I think any one could make it.mbut if you need help, there is a bideo to help you along. I think one down in pastel greens and yellow would be bright and cheerful too!

This is such a sweet and easy but great looking baby blanket. Aurora Skies Ribbed Baby Blanket is a good name for this one, I love the colors in this and so need to buy the yarn. I like that there is a video for the ones who need it and the written pattern is well done and so easy to follow and understand. The rib texture will be great for the baby to feel. I think this would also be nice to make as a lap afghan. I've saved this one until I can buy the yarn. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet baby blanket.
