Hi and welcome for part 2 of the Rainbows after the Rain CAL hosted by Zooty Owl and Kokopelli Design. This part 2 is especially exciting for me, as it includes my very first original square design ,,The Dreamcatcher Square" as the alternative/additional square for part 2! You can bet, that I'm excited. What a feeling it already was, when the wonderful Kim Ryan of Kim's Handmade Kreations tested the pattern for me and came up with this beautiful blanket. Awesome sauce, isn't it?
So here we go! In the photo and the chart below, you can see the placement of the Dreamcatcher Square in the finished blanket. For the Zooty Owl's patterns follow these links for the blanket, the poncho and the overall post for part 2.
