The Rainbow Mile a Minute Crochet Blanket Pattern is a multi-colored, multi-paneled crochet afghan that's worked in long strips and then joined together at the end. To work these individual strips, you work in rows for the center part and then work around in rounds. This crochet pattern seems trickier than it is since it features a Celtic weave technique, but as long as you pay attention to the intricacies of the pattern, you'll master it in no time. This crochet blanket pattern uses basic crochet stitches to work up, so you'll have a fantastic pop of color in your living room in no time!

Another beautiful mile a minute project. This rainbow mile a minute would be a great project to assist in using up some yarn from previous projects. By selecting a neutral color for the main part you could easily use multi-colors for the remainder of the project.

I was really surprised to see that the stitches used to make this beautiful pattern are the regular basic stitches. Depending on the number of panels you crochet and the length you can create anything from a basic pillow to a full size bed cover. Thanks for the free pattern.
