Sweet, funky, retro, modern, bright, remarkable colors – this Rainbow Candy Diagonal Granny Stripe blanket has it all! These diagonal stripes are really interesting and in this choice of colors, the colors of a Candy cane, quickly become kid's favorites. Treat your dear ones to a soft blanket of colorful candy stripes. The Rainbow Candy Diagonal Granny Stripe pattern by Zelna Olivier is great and it's pretty easy to make.

This Diagonal Granny Stripe had to be square – this means to you keep on increasing on both sides until the outer edges of the triangle measure the length and width you wish your finished project to be.   Then decrease on both sides until your last cluster. I used candy pink, fuschia, peach, red, lemon, lime, mint, jade, aqua, turquoise, blue, denim, lilac and purple for my colour stripes:

On the increase half I used white to separate the colour bands.   A few rows before I started decreasing I introduced grey between the colour bands. Source: Rainbow Candy Diagonal Granny Stripe 

This blanket is made of DK (8ply / light worsted weight) 100% Acrylic. The pattern looks really well in Aran (10ply / worsted weight) and Chunky (12 ply / rug) as well.
