This Rippling Rainbow blanket is so elegant and chic. Both mom and and baby will love this very beautiful work of art. Anyone who receives the gift will really appreciate it. It will be an interesting conversation piece. I can't wait to do this project.

This blanket is so beautiful, and I honestly cannot believe how easy the pattern is! This would be a fabulous gift for a color-loving pre-teen or teenager.

Yes! I was thinking that very thing. Very suitable for a baby shower gift, but my preteen niece would also totally love this! I mean, rainbows. Am I right?
