Pattern Details

Not many things make the heart soar and your face smile than a rainbow! This gorgeous blanket will be loved by any boy or girl. Not your typical, super bright colors but a slightly muted colorway that still is sure to delight. Pick traditional, primary colors, or, for the more modern mommy, soft creams, chocolates and turquoise. Shades of all the same color would look terrific too. Five or six shades of blue or pink. Shades of grey and yellows are stunning. The sky's the limit. I would HIGHLY suggest doing a large, one color, practice swatch before committing to the larger blanket. Cast on 31 and practice for about a foot or so. This is what I did myself and I'm glad I did. Not just for babies. Toddlers love them too. Easily make larger or smaller to fit your needs. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY I would rate this as a VERY advanced beginner crocheter. You can make several with the amount of yarn given in the pattern. Great project to use up your stash yarn. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 50" x 34"

I was taught to knit by my mother in my teens in the '70's and I quickly went from that to cross stitch and then needlepoint. Life goes on to a full time job, marriage, a child and then in early in 2004, I was forced to stay off my feet. I pick up the needles and started with knitting a scarf and then another, and then another. Next thing I know, I have 50 of them. Off to a local art gallery I go to peddle my wares. They loved and sold them all. Creative Design was born. Three upscale children's boutiques and women's wear shops later, here I am. Fingers flyin' with an Etsy shop sheilalikestoknit and lovin' Craftsy! I can most often be found in "my chair" surrounded by a pile of yarn, fabric, more yarn, needles, another pile of yarn, patterns, more fabric...etc. We love to travel, eat good food, be with family and great friends. Knitwear: my handmade knitwear is lovingly created by me. The process of choosing great fabric and yarn colors is half the fun. Knitting it all up and seeing it come together is wonderful and the final moment of seeing this creation around someones neck, on a little body, noggin or in their stroller is the BEST. My Philosophy: I am committed to quality fabric and fiber. Attention to detail, craftsmanship and customer satisfaction will always be part of that philosophy.
