Weaving Rainbows Blanket
100% Pure Australian Wool, Crochet.

This delightfully cheery little blanket is finally finished and available in my Etsy Shop. And when I was crocheting this blanket, I could say that I was weaving rainbows. Teehee! A bit cheeky, like when I could say I was crocheting intuition.

I love the way this chunky variegated yarn created its own natural stripe effect in this blanket. Solid bands of colour that graduate to the next shade ever so organically. This is the first time I’ve used weave stitch and it won’t be the last. It’s the same both sides, is easy to remember and relatively fast. A few ticks there!

It’s got a lovely almost stretchy drape and is the perfect size for a pram or car seat or bassinet. A really cute little pop of colours in the sweetest rainbow shades including indigo blue, aqua, teal, and royal blue. It’s bright but not so bright that you need your sunnies to look at it!

This is my first go at making a blanket specifically for a Christening or Baby Naming Day. I think I have much to learn about photographing pure white too! Geez it was tricky to get the right lighting – obviously I didn’t quite succeed either. But that’s OK – it was my first go at it so I forgive me. I’m still learning. Not that stitch though! A big fave of mine, the Vintage Fan Ripple Crochet Pattern pops up yet again.

The tweak on this pattern is the size of the fans. Or more specifically the height of the fans. I did a row with smaller fans, then a row with medium fans, then a row with large fans. Then I went back down to medium, to small, to medium, to large and so on.

I think it creates a really lovely subtle detail in the blanket, it has a gentle flow and is also very unique.

These are the blankets that went off to the real life bricks and mortar shop this week. It’s not open yet, but as soon it does I’ll let you know where it is in case you are near there and would like to see them (and lots of other super sweet goodies) for yourself. These are all unique custom-made blankets in pure cotton. Soft and squishy happiness in a blanket I reckon!

Wishing you lots of soft and squishy happiness this weekend.
