The rainbow stripes on this blanket are not only many-colored but also many-sized, giving this knit blanket pattern a joyfully riotous feel.

This is a simple pattern that is a great way to use up yarn in the stash. It's made with bulky/chunky yarn, which I don't have much of, so I would make it with two strands of worsted weight yarn (which I have plenty to) held together. I like the simple crocheted edge, which finishes it off nicely.

The yarn is DK not bulky, the needle size is US6/4mm, the border is knit, it is not double stranded. I do love your idea of double stranding it in worsted weight on a larger needle, since this is a baby blanket I think double stranded with larger needles will make it close to full size, as shown in the picture.

In an effort to use up the yarn I inherited from my mom plus the yarn I've managed to hoard over the years, I have embarked on a project to make everyone in my family an afghan. I am about halfway through now. I think this one would be perfect for my 9 year old great nephew. Isn't it amazing though, the more yarn you have the more you have to shop for the perfect new color to go with it? Thanks for this inspiration, I saved it to my knitting patterns.
