The Big Reveal – Rainbow Ridge Blanket

We’re finally here, it’s REVEAL DAY!

I’ve been bursting to share this with you for weeks and weeks (in case my instagram posts didn’t give it away), this one is absolutely beautiful!

The colours, the texture, all of it. I love it.


Get the Yarn

There are five different Softfun colour packs to choose from including Pastel (which I have), Jewel, Rich, Rainbow and Cloud. There are a full list of stockists on the Scheepjes website, but you can also find the packs at your favourite LYS or online retailer including:
Wool Warehouse* (global)
Caro’s Atelier* (NL and Europe)
Black Sheep Wools* (UK)
Dot’s Yarn Den (US)
Belle Mae Yarns (AU)

You’ll need one colour pack in the colours you like best, plus 6 balls of Softfun in a complementary colourway. I chose 2622 Latte.

I’ve used the same yarn under technique to make the Rainbow Ridge blanket that I used in Reti the Koala Lovey from a few months ago, with a moss (linen) stitch double border.

The softfun colour pack coupled with a few 50g balls of softfun make the perfect baby/cot sized blanket. The cotton blend makes it great for warmer months, and the weight of the blanket thanks to the ridge texture means that it’s also snuggly. The durability of the acrylic means that you can wash and wash and wash this one and it will keep looking beautiful.

Of course the dog couldn’t be left out, she inserted herself into most of the photos!

I’m getting ready to convert the pattern from UK to US terms so I can upload it within the next week. Stay tuned!
