For those of you who love a rainbow, but want it in pastel shades rather than brights, we’ve created a pastel rainbow bundle for you to make a blanket, cardigan, jumper or just top up your yarn stash!

This bundle is even more special as it has one of our popular limited edition yarns (only available to LAD subscribers) – the lovely Lemon. Combining the lemon with our other pastel colours in our main collection, we’re getting real neopolitan ice-cream vibes!

This yarn bundle is only available in 100g as it contains a limited edition colour. The bundle comes with 6 beautiful pastel colours; Candyfloss, Lemon, Lilac, Mint, Duck Egg & Bubble. If you’d like to add 15mm circular needles too to knit a blanket just add them to your bundle (you’ve got a choice of 60cm or 100cm long)

How to make a Pastel Rainbow Blanket

Knitting a blanket with the pastel rainbow yarn bundle couldn’t be easier!

With 15mm circular needles, cast on 63 stitches.

Knit every row until you run out of the colour you’re using, then introduce the next colour. You can use the colours in the same order as we have, or change it up – it’s totally up to you.

Once you’ve got approx 4m left of your final yarn colour, cast off.

Top Tip: it helps to change yarn colours at the end of a row so you can tie ends together and weave them in neatly.
