Half a Rainbow Baby Blanket Pattern
Yet another pattern for your consideration....
Using 4 skeins of Lion Brand Homespun (one each in mint green, light lavender, cotton candy pink and baby blue) and size 17 circular with 29 inch cord. You can use any other type of yarn b/c a friend gave me a lot of this yarn.
CO on 50 stitches using two strands of the mint green (pull one end from center and the other from top), knit every row until skein runs out (about 40 rows or so--depending on how much you got in the skein).
Join two strands of purple, knit 8 rows.
Join two strands of pink (and cut purple), knit 20 rows.
Join two strands of purple (and cut pink), knit 8 rows.
Join two strands of blue (and cut purple), knit until you run out of blue yarn.
It's a very nice, colorful pattern--perfect for a baby. For a nice touch, I'm told you can crochet an edge around it using the left over purple yarn. I don't crochet as I'm genetically unable to do that skill.
