So bright and beautiful! You can’t go wrong no matter what colors your choose for this Color Kaleidoscope Crochet Blanket Pattern! I’m so excited to share this pattern with you that I’m adding in a freebie… you can get the free pattern here OR you can grab the free printable PDF!
I made this blanket using two strands at the same time of Caron Big Cakes in Summer Berry Tart. I love the variegated look it creates PLUS the self striping. It really creates something magical!
I especially love the randomness of the finished blanket. Some stripes are a solid color, some appear more often than others, and different combinations create different colors. I tried not to be concerned with how the colors were matching up. I just grabbed 2 skeins, pulled from the center and started crocheting. I’m so glad I did it that way! Trust me, it was hard not to cut some colors out to get to where I wanted… but I let the yarn do the talking here 😉
For the stitch I used the Lemon Peel Stitch. It’s a combination of sc and dc, working the dc stitches into the sc’s and the sc stitches into the dc’s. It creates this uneven, pretty texture that worked up perfectly with this yarn.
