A Different Ripple Blanket

I have always wanted to make a ripple blanket. However, I've never attempted one because I get easily bored of simple repetitious patterns. When I set out to make a larger blanket for me and my son to cuddle with, and that can soon transition to his toddler blanket, I knew I needed to come up with a different variation of a standard ripple.

Rainbow Sunburst Blanket

I wanted my little boy to have a super colorful blanket for his stroller and in the car so I created this rainbow sunburst blanket.

For this blanket, I didn't want a traditional rainbow but I still wanted it to be super colorful. Originally, I was inspired by Knit Pick's Hue Shift afghan (see the knit version for a better picture), but did not want to make something too similar to it. After a lot of trial and error on the computer (and a little color theory help from my husband) I came up with this design that sort of radiates a rainbow without being over the top.
