Rainbow Splash Blanket
Rainbow Splash Blanket

We all enjoy a splash of colour in our lives and the Rainbow Splash Blanket gives us exactly the boost that we need. Embracing an enormous 32 different colours it is perfect for using up your yarn stash or for treating yourself to some more to enjoy with plenty left over for other projects! This beginner friendly pattern uses a simple 4-row repeat of simple stitches all worked from the right side of the blanket to create an ombre chevron detail and side fringe. It works beautifully as a baby blanket but also as a tactile playmat or even as a little lap blanket too. Enjoy every mindful stitch and create something truly stunning.

Instructions

Glossary:
ch - chain
sl st - slip stitch
st- stitch
sk - skip
BL - back loop
FL - front loop
rep - repeat
RS - right side
US: sc - single crochet, dc - double crochet
UK: dc - double crochet, tr - treble

Notes:

  • A ch1 at the beginning of a row does not count as a stitch.
  • Work in the back loop of stitches throughout.
  • Always work from the RS (right side) of the piece. At the end of each row, break the yarn and return to the 1st stitch of that row with RS facing to start the next row.
  • Leave tails long enough to create a 6cm fringe on either end of your work.
