Saw this pattern on Pinterest last week and had to make it for a friends little girl.
It is 3x5 foot and worked up pretty fast.



The middle is 5 grannys and then you just crochet around them.



Thanks for looking!

Stats: 9576 double crochets, 3756 single crochets, and 28 colors.

It looks beautiful! The colors are great, and I can't believe you finished it so quickly.

Oh gosh, I saw the title of this thread and though each one of those colored spots was a tiny granny square~ Can you imagine the work that would take??  Roll Eyes

So yes! This is a much simpler, better idea than that. It's so pretty! I've made rainbow cluster blankets before, but always straight rows-- I'll have to try this for the next baby in the family.

Thank you all!

I couldn't find a written pattern so I just winged it.
I am not a pattern writer, I do better with the diagrams, so bear with me please.

Make a standard granny with 5 rows on the joining and subsequent ripple rows begin with a chain 3 in the ch 2 corner of the granny and then granny around the next corner as usual until you reach the opposite corner from where you started and cluster the three dc on current granny and next granny to be joined. so you will have 6 DC on the hook then finish cluster stitch, chain 1 and continue on granny squaring over the next granny until you have joined all the grannys in a row finishing with a chain 3 just like you started. the chain 3 starts/finishes become the edges of the afghan.

I hope this makes sense. Smiley
