Rainbow Weave Baby Afghan free crochet pattern

July 17, 2016By 0 Comments

Hey all! Kristina and I try to make an afghan each month for Newborns in Need to share with everyone. You can see our past patterns HERE.

Today I want to share with you a fun new Rainbow Weave Afghan.
For this weave, I kept it simple but I have so many ideas running through my head to make this simple afghan even better! I am thinking you will be thinking the same thing! Gotta love unrestrained creativity! 🙂

Rainbow: Cut 4 strands each color (7 colors) at 60 inches (if you changed the size of your blanket, you will need longer strands)

Thread onto crochet needle, keeping ends even, and weave over/under the chain 1 spaces, knot at each end securely, leaving approx. 3 in fringe.

( I weaved ours the same way through but alternating (more basket weave) would be cool too!)

Cut 16 more of each color @ 8 inches, use 2 pieces together to make additional fringe. Neaten edges if needed (mine never turn out perfectly even and need trimming!)

We create these afghans for donation to the local hospitals via our local Newborns in Need chapter. While the nurses at our hospitals here prefer clean edged afghans for the newborns, sometimes you just have to have some fringe! If you do not want fringe, just weave in the ends of your rainbow colors and/or add some additional rainbow edging!

There you have it, a fun and colorful one of a kind unique rainbow for any baby! I was thinking this would look cool on a wall too or floor or anywhere! I love rainbows though so I might be crazy!

Thanks for surfing the sky with us today! Hoping you find your pot of gold!
