Who does not like a rainbow? Whilst I can appreciate pastel and white blankets for baby there is something about the practicability of a colourful, chuck it in the washing machine kind of blanket for snuggles and tummy time and onward to picnics in the great outdoors.
Here is a free pattern for my Rainbow Baby Blanket. It uses This is another great stash buster blanket, I used the yarn left over from my Home Stay Crochet Along blanket. I had actually made these squares to add another border for it but it just didn’t look right and when spread out on the floor I thought they would make a cute baby blanket. This measures 30 inches square. The link to the pattern with more information on yarn and notions is below. If you don't fancy making it I have just this original one for sale over on my Etsy shop (link also below):
