Instructions for a reborn or baby blanket with patterned stripes. I've used the 7 colours of the rainbow for mine, and its finished size is 22 x 22" (56 x 56cm) in size, but you can easily add more stripes to make the blanket longer.
This pattern is ideal for the thicker DK yarns. I have used Woolcraft Baby Care, and I have used 6mm needles. This makes the blanket lighter in weight whilst still keeping in the warmth.
You will need:
200g of white dk yarn, 20g each of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo & violet, all with a standard tension of 22sts and 28 rows to 10cm square over stocking stitch on 4mm needles.
1 x pr 6mm needles
This pattern has been designed by myself so it is in UK terminology. It does not follow the usual ‘shop bought’ format. There are 2 printed pages with clear and easy to follow instructions. All my patterns are tested by independent knitters before they are released, so every effort is made so that they come to you error free.
Although my patterns are strictly protected by copyright, which I ask you to respect, I am more than happy for any items made from my patterns to be sold.
Please allow 24 hours for manually emailed PDF delivery, especially for international customers, as your daytime, might be our night time.
If you have not received your pattern after 24 hours, then please contact me. Happy knitting!
