Rainbow Sampler Blanket
How many stitches can you crochet? If you want to try them all out in one crochet pattern, try out the Rainbow Sampler Blanket. This is a great trial and error project that doesn't have to be perfect because it'll look really cool anyway it turns out. You can play with the different stitches, textures, and colors. It would be a great stash buster crochet pattern as well. This is a great experiment for any intermediate level crocheter out there.
Crochet HookJ/10 or 6 mm hook
Yarn Weight(3) Light/DK (21-24 stitches to 4 inches)
Finished Size1.80m by 1.80m (71 inch square)

The link to this pattern doesn't seem to be working. I'd love to make the afghan so hoping this issue can be fixed. Thanks

I started off following the pattern and ended up creating something a little different but really enjoyed the process as this is the first large piece of work that Ive ever tried. I made it in wool so it would be a lasting piece for my young grandson.

Love this rainbow stripe blanket. What's nice about this is that each line has a distinct theme. I like the colors used here. They look unique and elegant, not just an ordinary crochet project. can't wait to do this.

I am know for gifting strange and unusual items. This afghan right here would fall right into that category. You would never in a million years find something like this in a store and I know just the young lady to make this for. At the end of this school year she will be finishing high school. Wouldn't this be the perfect item to take off to college in the fall?

Now this is my next project. Now only is there an opportunity to use different color yarns, there is the use of multiple stitches. Talk about a one of a kind afghan. I wish I were bold enough to venture out and change the colors but I guess I could change when I want to use them. This is going to be a fun project.

I am loving on this blanket right now. However, my personal challenge is working on such a large stash buster project, in that some of my yarns are of different weights- therefore it makes it makes for one weird and uneven blanket. If i made this blanket, I'd probably go to store and actually pick out all my colors in a standard worsted weight but SOFT. I like the way the sample was worked!

If you want to try and incorporate all different kinds of stitches into one blanket, a sampler blanket is the perfect project for you. It doesnt have to be perfect (a sampler rarely is), and it gives you an opportunity to try about any stitch you like.

The absolute best part of this project is getting to explore all the different stitches. I really appreciate the instructions for each individual row, and that she suggests the color and either explains the stitch or provides a link to a tutorial. This would classify as a scrapbuster, but she must have as many different colored skeins lying around the house as I do!

Wow, this is a stunning afghan! The mix of colors and textures are really eye-catching. This would be a wonderful housewarming gift.

I love this! It reminds me of the weather/temperature afghans. I like that it has all of the different stitches. It makes it easier to stay interested. I sometimes get bored with the same stitch over and over, row by row! Don't you think this would be good for new crocheters to learn more stitches?

I couldn't have put it better myself! I've heard of mood afghans and the like, but I love this sampler idea. I think it's a great idea for beginners and more advanced crocheters alike to not only have it as a reference for what certain stitches look like, but to also have almost a timeline of progress in your craft. And it certainly doesn't hurt that all the textures make for a quirky/comfy blanket. I'm super excited to get started on this! Anyone else adding this to their WIPs?
