Reveal: Rainbow Spirit Blanket with Free Pattern Coming Soon

Why is it that crocheted blankets always look so good in a natural setting? Taking a picture like this has been on my photography wish list for quite some time and now I've finally made something that I can actually drape over a rickety old gate! Meet the Rainbow Spirit Blanket.

Last week I showed you some work-in-progress pictures of this new design of mine and this week I've already finished it! It's such a quick blanket project with - I think- a very beautiful result. Not only because of the classic spiderweb pattern, which I designed in strips, but also because of the yarn combination: I've used one strand of Scheepjes Catona together with one strand of Scheepjes Spirit.

Free pattern next week
The spiderweb strips allow you to make this blanket any size you'd like and with as many colours as you'd like. I opted for a Rainbow palette and a baby blanket size but in the pattern that I will release here on my blog next week, I'll explain how to adjust it to just any size. So please check back for written instructions and some more photos next weekend.

  1. When I click on the Deramores Australian site it appears they don't have Sheepjes yarn for sale. The links take me to the yarn but the site doesn't sell it?

    1. Yes, the site does sell it. When I click it, there's an 'add to basket' button. Perhaps it was a temporary glitch?
