The Rainbow Ruffle blanket is super warm, soft, cuddly, and so easy to make! The pattern is unbelievably simple; the entire blanket is crocheted in double crochet. The ruffle is added at the end, in front loops between two rows of different colors.

Skill level: Beginner – I made this tutorial to be super easy, even for beginners. All you have to do is to grab your crochet hook, make some coffee or tea, and follow the pictures.

The tutorial is written in standard US crochet terms, but if you’re from the United Kingdom, you can easily follow the tutorial, just make treble crochet instead of double crochet, and that’s it! The other 2 stitches are the same (chain stitch, and slip stitch). Yes! It’s that simple!

Stitches: chain stitch, double crochet, slip stitch

Special stitches: standing dc

Size: 25.6” (65cm) wide x 27.5” (70cm) long. The blanket weights 507g

This blanket is worked back and forth in rows, and can be made in any size. You can adjust the size simply by adding or decreasing the number of stitches of foundation chain, and adding or decreasing the number of rows.

Yarn:

For this blanket I used “Golf” (St. George) 100% cotton 125m/50g, “Cotton classic” (St. George) 120m/50g and “Tango” (St. George) 100% cotton 125m/50g

You will approximately need:

• Yellow (Cotton Classic – No. 0023) 1 skein of 50g
• Pink (Cotton Classic – No. 0005) 2 skeins of 50g
• Lavender (Cotton Classic – No. 0028) 2 skeins of 50g
