Don’t you just love it when you can finally reveal a blanket you have made as a gift?

This little beauty has been in the pipeline for some time.  I’ve been itching to make a baby blanket in rainbow and white but none of my friends would oblige me with said baby!  Finally my lovely friend Saz announced her pregnancy and my crochet hook stopped twitching.

I had already planned a rainbow blanket but when she said she could not decide between making a pink blanket or a rainbow blanket (she crochets, in fact I taught her) I did the kind thing and offered to make whatever she decided not to, so she could have both.

Thankfully she chose pink and so therefore the rainbow blanket could become a reality.

I decided on a very simple join as you go with a spot of ribbing and then some scallops before adding teeny tiny pom poms all round the edge.  The colours are all from my stash, there is a little stylecraft in there a spot of pound stretcher purple and lime and a random king cole blue!  The white however is all stylecraft special DK as it’s a dream to join with.

If you fancy adding teeny tiny pom poms to your blanket edges you can purchase the mini makers from our shop.

Hopefully in a few weeks I can pop back with a piccie of the wee jellybean all wrapped up in her blankie.
