The Little Vintage Rainbow
I created this beautiful blanket as I wanted something that wasn’t so holey. It's my go to pattern if I need a gift for a friend or family member. The blanket itself is made up of the Suzette stitch I've used 9 Stylecraft colours (I will post each colour at the bottom of the pattern) if you wish to use the same colourway. Although this pattern looks just as great in single colours or in other colourways. I've added another picture so you are able to see others. I do really hope that you enjoy making it as much as I have.
