Rainbow Stripes Beginner Crochet Blanket

The bold, chunky stripes of this crochet blanket pattern are so eye-catching. This Rainbow Stripes Beginner Crochet Blanket captures the brightest colors of the rainbow and hooks them into the perfect piece. This afghan blanket is crocheted loosely, so it gaps easily for little fingers to play with or for a lighter feel. If you want to adjust it, however, the pattern will still work with a thicker yarn and a smaller crochet hook for more density. This beginner crochet pattern is so easy and only uses the most basic stitches, so it's the perfect blanket to start out with as a newbie!

This is an admirable project done by a beginner. The colors used are fantastic, very good taste. Baby will enjoy the colors. They will stimulate his eye movement, and strengthen his eye muscles.

Wow!!! This is eye candy! Wouldn't it be perfect for a toddler's room. Soooo cheery too! This linen stitch looks so simple that I'll be able to do it while I watch my favorite tele program this winter. If I throw in a stripe of bright purple and one of dark blue I can use it to teach them the colors of the rainbow-R.O.Y. G. B.I.V. This one will go to my first grandchild!
