The Over the Rainbow Blanket Kit contains Drops Delight and Drops Alpaca to knit this stunning blanket. The blanket is knitted in three sections: each side consists of knitted ‘fans’ which are joined together as you work, using the domino knitting technique of picking up stitches. The central circles are knitted separately in the round and then sewn to the two halves. You can download the pattern for free from the Drops Design website.
This is a great kit for intermediate/advanced knitters. You will need 4.50mm needles (straight or circular for the fans) and double-pointed needles for the circles (the pattern says to use two sets of double-pointed needles for the circles but I found one set to be sufficient). These are not included in the kit.
The finished blanket is approximately 100 x 150cm.
