Pattern Description:

I love rainbows! They are vibrant and bring a smile to your face. I designed this set to bring even more joy to your bundle! Colors are for everyone, and your baby will love the bright colors and bold texture of this set.


Please note that my yarn of choice, Cascade Yarns Cherub Aran, is on the slim side. If you are using a different yarn you may need to go down a hook size to obtain gauge or your blanket and hat will be larger than the sample.

Sara Leighton on

I live in Seattle, Washington with my loving husband and kitty. Since learning to crochet in college I have spent much of the past several years improving my skills and immersing myself in the subculture. In addition to crochet my hobbies include quilling, baking, and reading. My favorite color is purple. Shine on and happy hooking!
