The Rock Candy Knit Blanket Pattern is a playful baby blanket pattern with bright, popping colors that look like candy lining a store’s shelves. This blanket pattern uses a fun combination of knits, purls, and yarn overs to create a blanket with many different textures, and a self-striping yarn lets you get the great look of stripes without the difficulty of changing yarn colors. This blanket will look wonderful lining any baby’s crib, and they will love to snuggle with it (and so will you)!
