Who wants a sweet rainbow of color springing off your crochet hook? You can do just that with my new free crochet pattern--

It's a party of color, I tell ya! And with fun texture, too. I had someone tell me
that it looks really complicated, but honestly, it is super simple!! The center rows are an easy repeat working only sc and dc (US) combinations. And the border follows a really simple repeat, as well--mostly hdc. I rated the pattern as "Easy" which according to the Craft Yarn Council means "Projects using yarn with basic stitches, repetitive stitch patterns, simple color changes, and simple shaping and finishing." Yep. That's about right. So, I say, give it a try!

I made it with one of my favorite yarns--Scheepjes Colour Crafter

There are lots of reasons why I love working with this yarn, but here are a few:
~with generous 100g center-pull skeins at a very affordable price, they are perfect for blankets and other larger projects
~I'm finding that the DK weight is heavy enough for a bit of warmth, but not too heavy to sit under while working in warmer weather--again, perfect for blankets
~the premium acrylic is easy care, doesn't pill or fuzz, and is super soft--again, ideal for blankets
~have you seen the colors?!!! Again, perfect for blankets--and ME!
 
So, now that you know why I love this yarn for blankets (and lots of other projects, too), let's gaze at this blanket...

Ahhhh. It makes me happy. 

I have taken the time to write up a PDF printable pattern for you--because I know how much nicer they are to work from--and it has been thoroughly tested for accuracy. You can find the pattern and a bunch of others (free and paid) for download in my LoveCrafts shop here. You can find it on Etsy here for a small fee, too, and every little bit of support helps me continue to blog and provide free patterns. But I've got some more fabulous news...
