Rainbow Crochet Squares

HURRAH, this week I finished my Rainbow Crochet squares! 

I spent some time over the weekend weaving in all the loose ends and re-doing one dodgy square!

After 6 months of hard work* they are all ready to be sewn into a lovely blanket!

I thought I would give you a little story of how these square came to be...

I was originally inspired by this blanket here:


I tried to duplicate the pattern and make the squares the same but I didn't really like how it looked:


I did some tweaking and made my own pattern that I found worked better for me!

I tried to mix the colours up as with the original blanket that inspired me:


I didn't like the look with the shades of wool I had so I hunted down 2 different shades of each colour for my final squares!

I am really happy with how they turned out and I can't wait to see them all stitched together!

* By hard work what I really mean is a few squares per Brown Owls Meeting, over some cake and iced coffee!
