Rainbow Stripe Blanket

Lion Brand® Cotton-Ease® (original)

GAUGE:

Each square measures 7½ inches x 7½ inches (19 mm).

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

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.
