A beautiful bundle of 7 x rainbow colours in our recycled Big Cotton Yarn. Perfect for knitting a super soft blanket in gorgeous rainbow stripes.

Each bundle comes with 7 rainbow colours; Poppy, Tangerine, Canary, Apple, Cobalt, Violet & Damson. Perfect for a blanket but you can also use the bundle for other knits too! Add 10mm needles to your bundle order too if you’ve not already got them.

How to make a Rainbow Blanket

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

With 10mm circular needles, cast on 80 stitches in Poppy.

Knit every row until you run out of the colour you’re using (we found we were able to knit 15 rows in each colour), 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.

Size

115mm wide x 80 long (if you’d like a larger blanket, use 2 x balls per stripe instead of 1)
