This is an Ombre Rainbow (OmbRainbow- see what I did there?!) -two strands of yarn are used at the same time so that each colour blends and flows into the next.

I have designed it to be easy to follow, so it is beginner friendly and I give you the colour recipe and amounts of yarn you will need. There is a photo tutorial included to help you make the bobble pom poms which are crocheted as you make the blanket and therefore won’t shed or fall off.

It is a larger, longer version of my Rainbow Drop blanket which can be found here:

5.5mm hook
Yarn: I used Hobbii Bamboo Rainbow.
Approximate amounts:
Grey 31g
Violet 50g
Indigo 53g
Blue 60g
Green 67g
Yellow 77g
Orange 89g
Red 95g

You could substitute with any dk yarn but amounts would need to be adjusted.
