Stash-Busting Rainbow Baby Blanket

I’ve been crocheting through all of the hoarded Lion Brand Mandala yarn lately and can proudly say that out of the 18 cakes of yarn, I am down to 2. That’s a good thing.

Two cakes of Mandala Gnome were used to crochet a super duper fast baby blanket using a pattern called Whitby by Lion Brand.

It is SO bright. :rainbow:

The problem is the dang tribbles are just so soft and squishy and I want to bring them all home.

So bright, cheery, and pretty! It does look like an easy pattern, and something you could do while watching TV. How big did it end up? I have a few yarn cakes to use up, myself…

I used two full cakes, about 1,100 yds total of a DK yarn, and it came out 36" x 36".

Thanks! I picked up some cakes in clearance a couple of years ago, and I thought I’d use them for a shawl, but I think a blanket is their destiny!

My initial “reasoning” for buying the (ahem) 18 cakes of Mandala was for shawl making too, but ended up using most of them for blankets of various sizes.

Hope you post your stash busting projects!

Love this so much!
Having been to Whitby yesterday, just had to download this, and have stash yarn in mind for it. When I get fed up of doing patches for jumper, this will be started :+1:
