The Skittles blanket is a joyful, fun pattern with many rainbow hues, just like the candies that inspired it. It’s a simple repeated pattern, making it beginner friendly and a breeze to make. It will definitely be a great project to take a break from more difficult ones, as well as being an attractive blanket in its own right. It’s also a great idea for a gift, or a project to take on together with an enthusiastic beginner, like a daughter. A link to the free pattern is at the end of the post.
