I have reworked this pattern to make it much easier and it is now only 6 rounds for each square and all with easy repeats! And another bonus - your squares should not need to be blocked when finished - win win!!! I hope you enjoy the new re-worked version of my pattern. (I have kept the original rounds in the pattern so you can choose which you prefer but I am sure you will agree that the new reworked version is so much more fun to make!).

Here is my Rainbow of Stars Blanket Crochet Pattern.

You will receive two pdf. patterns. One in UK terminology and one in US terminology. Please ensure you work from the one most relevant to you. I hope providing both will make this pattern more accessible to crocheters regardless of our preferred US/UK terminology.

I set out on a journey when designing this blanket. I had an image in my head of exactly how I wanted it to look and I was not going to rest until I had achieved that image. And I am so pleased to say that this is exactly how I had envisaged it to be! The blanket design is inspired by my youngest star. He is in love with all things rainbow and stars at the moment - hence the colours and design.

The finished blanket measures approximately 38 inches by 54 inches but you can, of course make this any size you wish by simply making fewer or more squares.

I made the blanket in the photos using Stylecraft Special DK but it works equally as well in any weight yarn providing the same is used throughout.

I would suggest that this pattern is for crocheters with intermediate skills.

The pattern includes many photos for any tricky parts but it is not a step by step photo tutorial, it is a written pattern and not a chart.
