Rainbow Stripe Blanket Reviewed by Judy Fradenburg on 2012-03-09 *****
I have used this pattern a few times & it is cute as can be. I did add a row of purple to make a truer rainbow. Easy pattern & so cute! It's also a good size for a little bit older child to be able to take places with them--I have been told this by parents whose 6 year old still carries it! Best effect is with bright colors so can work for boy or girl.

I loved making this for my daughter four years ago. It was a very well written pattern, but I did have a LOT of yarn left over, so I made her a matching sweater that she wore for the next 1 1/2 years. She loved the blanket. I wish they didn't discontinue this yarn-- it was the BEST. I think Vanna's Choice feels similar, but Vanna's Choice is 100% acrylic and the yarn used for this project is 50/50 cotton/acrylic. That means it washes differently-- my daughter's blanket has that broken-in feeling, soft and comfy, after being washed a million times. Vanna's Choice would take longer to break down for that.

Sorry to digress. This is an awesome pattern.

Rainbow Stripe Blanket Reviewed by JEAN C. GILBERT on 2008-02-06 *****
I'm about to make a second one of these, having made one about three years ago for a friend of my oldest daughter. Now my daughter is expecting and I will be fulfilling my promise to make her baby one, too.

The original pattern called for two balls of each color, though only a small portion of the second ball was used. If only I had bought a third ball of each before this yarn was discontinued! <Sigh>

I remember I got an extra, kind of padded effect by tucking the yarn ends inside of the rainbows. I'll probably do that again.

All in all a great, cheerful pattern...not too hard and not too easy. Definitely not a run-of the-mill pattern!

Now if I can only find either one ball of each color of the discontinued yarn somewhere or figure out how to approximate the colors with the suggested substitute yarns!
