After the Storm Crochet Rainbow Blanket

After the Storm Crochet Rainbow Blanket


Simply put – people and their stories were the inspiration behind the After the Storm Crochet Rainbow Blanket. I absolutely fell in love with the Lion Brand Skein Tones colors and when they first released them there were 12 hues. I wanted to be able to use all 12 to represent an array of humans.

Have you ever been stopped at a stop light and you just look around you at the other people and you wonder what their stories are? Maybe that’s just me…but I like getting to know people on a deeper level. What makes you, you? 

If you’ve been around this blog from the beginning you know some of what makes me, me. The inspiration behind this blanket was stories. One of mine is my fourth child, Parker. He’s my double rainbow baby. He’s my sweet rainbow after my storm. 

I want you to create the After the Storm Crochet Rainbow Blanket for your story, whatever that may be. Or create it to celebrate someone else’s story.
