I created this blanket for my first grand daughter who is due in January 2013, my daughter requested a bright fun blanket as all of the nursery furniture is white. Sometimes you want something a little less subdued for the nursery, something to show that there is a great big world of colour out there, and that life is exciting when it is lived out loud! Parents and babies alike will be thrilled with this rainbow ripple blanket, either cot sized or the useful bassinet/stroller/car seat size. Use your imagination and any combination of colours that takes your fancy, use 7 yarns or 37! Great for using up the oddments you have collected over the years and the perfect excuse to start saving them up.
