Crochet Hexagon Rainbow Newborn Blanket

This lovely crochet Hexagon Rainbow Newborn Blanket pattern was given to me by one of our community members, Vicki Brandt.  This pattern could be used in many different color combinations to match any nursery.  I chose the rainbow theme because I was in need of a blanket for a Rainbow Baby at the time I was crocheting this one.

This blanket could easily be done with any yarn including your favorite self-striping yarn, such as Caron Cakes.  Just let the yarn flow and enjoy the design for a quick and easy blanket.

When you upload your project to The Crochet Crowd Stitch Social Group or Instagram, feel free to tag me so I can see what you have crocheted.  Follow me on Instagram @ jeannestein or on Facebook.  My designs can also be saved in your Ravelry favorites by following me HERE.

I am excited to be part of The Crochet Crowd team. I have been crocheting for 40+ years. I am also a big geek and an internet addict. I met Mikey and Diva Dan while onboard a crochet cruise in March 2015, and the rest is history. I hope to help inspire fellow crocheters.
