Kashti is my rainbow blanket for my baby boy. A simple pattern perfect for TV knitting and "pregnancy brain" it makes a gorgeous blanket for nap time or play mat for fun time! The blanket is perfect for girls or boys, and it's easy to change up the colours to match your nursery. This is also a perfect stash buster if you have yarn scraps for the stripes! Change up the pattern by adding or taking away stripes or making them wider or narrower.

The pattern is fully written. The pattern has been tech edited and test knitted. There's a screenshot of the pattern, and a list of the stitches used at the bottom of the photos. These additional techniques are used: Judy's Magic Cast On.
