Gumdrop Ripple


Sweet little chevron rainbow blanket for a baby girl due to join our family in August. I sent it to her Mama early, and I've had it done since January -- less than a month after I found out my cousin was expecting! (I probably would have made a different blankie if she weren't having a girl.)

I loved this pattern and the puff stitches. And the crab stitch/reverse single crochet edging is so simple but really provides a nice finish. I used the super soft white yarn and brighter colors for the rainbow than the pattern called for. I've STILL got rainbow yarn left over, and I've made four rainbow-themed blankies with it so far.
