Rainbow Blanket Crochet/Knit A-Long - Yarn suggestions

 Getting Ready!

Hello everyone, I'm so excited to be hosting my first Crochet and Knit A-Long (CAL/KAL) next month for the Lottie and Albert Rainbow Blanket, and everyone is welcome to join in! It starts on 1 Feb and will run for a month. We'll be chatting on Instagram using the hashtag #rainbowblanketcal, and I'll be sure to sort out some rainbow prizes, to be drawn at random, for those who take part too!

You can find the crochet pattern here, and the knit version here. You will also need a 20mm hook, or 20mm circular needles with a 100cm cord.

The pattern uses 6 balls of 100g DK for the smallest lap blanket size (then multiples of 6 for the larger sizes, details in pattern) and so is a great stash buster! You are more than welcome to use your stash, but if you would like yarn suggestions from four different yarn companies, you can find them below. I have included Paintbox, Stylecraft, Marriner and Scheepjes, and for each brand there is a bright, pastel and neutral rainbow option!

I'll be posting some videos on my Instagram, @lottieandalbert, detailing how to wind the large yarn ball, and how to make half-treble crochets in the back loop only over the next few weeks.

Let me know if you plan on joining in! See you all soon.

  1. Hi, will there be a run down of what we will be doing every day or are we just crocheting the blanket through the month of February at our own pace?
