The story behind the Chasing Rainbows Baby Blanket PatternLW5174 Chasing Rainbows Baby Blanket by Marly Bird. Free Pattern

Don’t forget to Like this Pattern on Ravelry

The response on this free crochet blanket pattern has been incredible. It is one of the most popular patterns available on the Red Heart Website that was released this month. I am so happy that you like it! Seriously, when I hear from Red Heart that their website is blowing up with pattern downloads for MY PATTERN…it makes my day!

When I saw the finished project (crocheted by my Minion contractor, Mildred Diaz) I was giddy. I just knew using this stitch pattern with the Gumdrop yarn would make this blanket mouthwatering bright and it totally is!

The Chasing Rainbows Baby Blanket Pattern is one that I think is perfect for a boy or girl. Everybody loves rainbows and why not wrap your loved one in one?

Will there be a video?

Yes, I will be releasing a video tutorial next week for this fun blanket. So, gather your materials and join me to get started on it! Be sure to subscribe to the YouTube ChannelLearn On YouTube with Marly Bird. Free Knitting and Crochet

    I love the pattern to this blanket but I don’t understand it just in words. I understand that there was supposed to be a video tutorial on it, but I can’t seem to find it on your youtube, am I missing something here?

        I am just following up about the video for this one. Did it ever get uploaded? I am subscribed but it was months ago now and I just can’t find it. Really looking forward to seeing the video.

    I subscribed to your Youtube but I can’t seem to find the video either… Maybe I’ll figure it out I haven’t even started yet. 🙂 🙂 Thanks for the pattern though it’s beautiful.
