Hello, Rainbow!

The Rainbow Bobble Blanket

When I found out I was pregnant with my daughter (our first, and likely only, child!), I instantly began thinking about what handmade treasures I could craft for her in the coming months. A cozy blanket seemed like the perfect starting place, and it was such a joy to design this baby-friendly blanket pattern as we eagerly awaited her arrival.



About the Pattern

Filled with bright, cheerful colors and made from super soft yet durable yarn, the Rainbow Bobble Blanket presents a modern and playful take on multicolored stripes. (Seriously - the Feels Like Butta yarn from Lion Brand Yarns used in this pattern is machine washable and dryable!) The striped bobbles are complemented with a bobble border along all four sides.


This pattern uses a variety of basic stitches and easy color changes, ideal for an enthusiastic beginner! And because I love creating flexible blanket designs, this pattern includes instructions for making it any size! The blanket I stitched up (and is featured in this pattern's photos) measures 34.5" x 35.5". Of course, you're welcome to use your favorite yarn and adapt the design to fit your dream color palette (I think this would look so dreamy in a single color, too!). 



What's in the pattern?

In the PDF pattern available for purchase in my Etsy shop, you'll find:

  • A detailed 45-page tutorial with more than 60 step-by-step color photos that teach you exactly how to crochet this blanket (including photos showing you where to place your hook and stitch!)
  • Instructions provided for body of the blanket, border, and fastening off/weaving in all yarn tails
  • A comprehensive supply list
  • Tips that are written as if I'm teaching a good friend, so you'll encounter minimal abbreviations or crochet jargon
  • Instructions written in US terms


What stitches should I know?

Although the pattern's instructions are very detailed, I recommend you be familiar with the following stitches that are used in this blanket:

  • Foundation chain stitches
  • Slip stitches
  • Single crochet stitches
  • Double crochet stitches


Am I able to sell items I make from this pattern?

Yes! You are welcome to sell anything you make from this pattern. However, I kindly request that you do not alter this pattern in any manner and distribute as your own. Please also use your own photos to advertise products made for sale. I strongly (but politely!) request that you give credit to my shop for the pattern and post a link if you sell online.

Where can I purchase the pattern?

You'll find this pattern available here in my Etsy shop, and it costs $6!
