Introducing the Rainbow Baby Blanket, a design by me, just for you. Using one of my previous designs, the Modern Baby Blanket, I just made a large square instead of miniature squares. The border is slightly different.

I’ve always thought Rainbow Baby Blankets were very pretty, but it was only recently that I learned that they actually hold a special significance.  A “rainbow baby” is a baby that is born following a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss.  Crocheting a such a blanket for a special friend will become a most treasured gift.

It didn’t take me long to make this baby blanket. I was thrilled on how the rainbow colours were muted by the soft white that I had used. To me, it brings me comfort and soothing feelings. I hope you will enjoy my free pattern.

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.

    Hi Jeanne,
    I want to make this blanket for a co-worker to give to his wife as a surprise and I am very excited. I want to keep the cost down for him and I see that I’ll need to buy several colours of yarn. Will I have a lot of some of the colours left over? Can I use one ball to cover two colours or will I run out? I know that limits “the rainbow effect” but it will be lovely anyway. Alternatively, do you have any suggestions on what to make with the leftovers?

    1. You will definitely have yarn leftover. I made this blanket, the matching lovey AND the Rainbow Newborn Blanket . And I still have a bit of the colors left. I could easily make another lovey, but I’m currently out of white. I know it can be a bit pricey up front, but for a special blanket I don’t mind. And this turned out that it be ok since I was able to get multiple projects done with the yarn.
      Also, my girlfriend used variegated yarn in place of the colors and and effect is still beautiful. It was posted on the Facebook wall last night.

    Is there a tutorial for this blanket?

    1. If you watch the video for this one…

      It’s basically the same stitch, only changing colors every round.

    Love how the white gives such a softness to the colours range. It’s a rainbow cloud! What a beautiful gift this would be for a new baby. Once more you show how one pattern can look so different by the yarn that is chosen. I am so pleased how you keep us all up to date with new yarn releases. Once again , thank you for sharing your passion.
