Rainbow colors are a great theme for baby blankets. These gentle hues are not only beautiful but also soothing and very appropriate to many different decors. Here are some ideas to use this theme in different ways to make wonderful baby blankets.

Rainbow Sky Blanket Blanket Free Crochet Pattern

The Rainbow Sky blanket uses rainbow hues that gently transition from one band of the spectrum to the next. This is a very cosy, snuggly blanket that will be perfect to a baby’s touch, but will also provide gentle visual stimulation as their eyesight adjusts to their new world over the first several months of their life. Not too hot, not too cold, colorful and with a pleasant, tactile texture… this is just about the perfect baby blanket.
