This pattern developed as I struggled to find just the right blanket to knit for my friend Vera’s baby-to-be. I found myself ordering an entire palate of cotton colors and dabbling in various knitted textures. Before I knew it, this rainbow blanket took shape in my hands.
Vera and her baby both love the variety in this fun and machine washable blanket.
You can experiment with any number of colors and repeat the textures that strike your fancy.
