This is an Ombre Rainbow (OmbRainbow- see what I did there?!) -two strands of yarn are used at the same time so that each colour blends and flows into the next.

I have designed it to be easy to follow, so it is beginner friendly and I give you the colour recipe and amounts of yarn you will need. There is a photo tutorial included to help you make the bobble pom poms which are crocheted as you make the blanket and therefore won't shed or fall off.

It is a larger, longer version of my Rainbow Drop blanket which can be found here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/889154846/rainbow-drop-blanket-pattern-by-melu

5.5mm hook
Yarn: I used Hobbii Bamboo Rainbow.

I was so excited about this pattern and as I made my rainbow blanket, I fell even more in love!!! The pattern is absolutely fantastic and it works up really quickly compared to other blankets I've made. This is my new favorite blanket pattern and I think I've found my *go to* baby shower gift!
