Diagonal Rainbows Baby Blanket

Updated September 12, 2019
Diagonal Rainbows Baby Blanket

A unique diagonal crochet pattern, this DIY baby blanket is creative and fun. The Diagonal Rainbows Baby Blanket is a perfect beginner's crochet pattern and makes a great DIY baby gift idea. Forget difficult DIY baby shower gifts and stick to this easy blanket pattern. With bright and vibrant colors, this crochet blanket even works for DIY home decor.
From the Blogger: "I love crocheting diagonal blankets where you increase from one corner to the center and then decrease towards the end. That way, after you reach the halfway point, each row is shorter than the last! This diagonal blanket is full of vibrant colors that will brighten up any baby's day (or, even any room in your house)! "

I have just started making this blanket using the H hook as called for in the pattern. Much too slow going. If I ever attempt it again, I will use a large hook and bulky yarn.

I like this pattern because you can make it for either a boy or girl. The colors are lovely. The pattern even has a video which I like. It shows the designer went that extra step in writing the pattern. I also like that all the abbreviations are spelled out. Good pattern, nice blanket. Thank you!

This is another project I want to do. I like this Diagonal Rainbows baby blanket for its color scheme, not so much of the diagonal design. I can do this in rectangular presentation and following the colors used. Pretty!
