Hello, and thanks for stopping by – this post will tell you all there is to know about my bright C2C Rainbow blanket design. This is a perfect easy beginners baby blanket with a video tutorial.
Yes, this blanket even though it looks a little complicated, but it isn’t. It uses exactly the same stitches as granny square which is thought to be the “perfect beginners project”.
Corner to Corner Crochet
C2C is absolutely brilliant as the stunning diagnol stripes are made by just working the pattern. There are no complicated colour changes, to make this blanket, just changing colour at the end of a row.
Learning C2C – a great beginners crochet technique
I talk you through how to the technique slowly, this is a complete beginners tutotial.

Yarn for a rainbow baby blanket
I love this yarn. So soft, but cheap and completely washable which is required for baby blanket (having been there myself a few years ago!)
To the design – a rainbow – but what type? This is where my drawing skills completely let me down. I might be able to create in wool, thread, clay even…… but pen and paper and it left a lot to be desired!
We went for the stripy one…… Blanket was started and taken pretty much everywhere with me!
And then all of a sudden you realise you are nearly done!
So one finished blanket, sent to a friend in time for the birth of her little boy.
