Swirling Rainbow Blanket Crochet Pattern And Red Heart Stripes Yarn Review | Posh Pooch Designs

Swirling Rainbow Blanket Crochet Pattern By Sara Sach


My 4 year old Grand daughter thought 
I should call this Blanket "The Unicorn Poop Blanket".

 I think it is an adorable name!
What do you think? Should I change the name?

The Blanket is a Pentagon Shape with 5 corners, and 5 sides. 
It is trimmed with a fun heart edge.
It would be great as a summer blanket, stroller blanket, 
lap blanket, a dog or pet rug, a floor rug, or just a blanket
 to keep in the car for chilly days. 
The Blanket measures 24 x 24 inches, but if you want to
 make it bigger, continue to stitch as many rows as you want.

This Pattern is designed using Red Heart's New Yarn,
Super Saver Stripes. 
The Color I used is called "Bright Stripes."
I Love the thickness and feel of the yarn.
It is a Worsted weight (4) like the other Super Saver yarns, 
but it feels smoother. The yarn also has a shiny Sheen to it.
 I especially love the Striping effect. 
Long stripes of bright colors and a pop of Black
 between the colors.
You can find all the color choices on the Red Heart
 site at this LINK
I chose to call the Blanket Swirling Rainbows
 because as you work the Pentagon around, 
the bright colors seem to swirl.
Some projects and yarns you just work them to get done,
But this yarn is so fun to see how all the stripes work out.
