Skittles Blanket


"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 love the bold and bright colors of this afghan. It looks very modern and fun. I've also worked with all of the stitches used before, which is a bonus!

What a fun name for a fun afghan! It looks soooo cheery!!! This would look perfect to give a pop of color in all white room. I love the idea of making something that will be sure to bring a smile to the person I give it to. It looks like the artist has thought their pattern through well. In the meanwhile I can never practice those basic stitches enough.

Oh man, this is fun! I love the bright colors <3

Very pretty! Love it! #BestIdeaEver

A great, fun blanket. Love the colors and texture. It's going on my list!

This can be classified under the candy-type of blankets if there's such a thing. Here's the link to the pattern http// == t-free-crochet-pattern.html
