Baby's Best to Knit and Crochet: Rainbow Afghan, Jacket, Booties

| 6 Comments


This week, Leisure Arts launched a new website: Leisure Arts Library (http://www.leisureartslibrary.com):

Great designs never go out of style, but they do sometimes go out of print. After more than 35 years of publishing needlework and craft patterns, Leisure Arts has an archive full of great designs that have become unavailable to the public. But now LeisureArtsLibrary.com is here to change all that. We're opening our vault of treasures by converting our best designs from the past into digital files that you can download to your home computer.

babysbestrainbowset.jpg One popular but difficult-to-find pattern is the Rainbow Afghan baby blanket by Helen Passey from Baby's Best to Knit and Crochet, leaflet #191. Leisure Arts has made the Baby's Best Rainbow Afghan pattern with the coordinating baby jacket and booties patterns available on Leisure Arts Library. The price for the Rainbow Set (baby blanket, jacket, booties) is $2.99 - which is reasonable considering the leaflet was selling for more in eBay auctions!

Take the Leisure Arts "Library Survey" to let them know what out-of-print patterns you'd like them to make available!

I'm so excited, I made this pattern for my first
granddaughter 19 years ago and she is now having
her own baby, I have been searching for this pattern for 3 years, I was so sorry I gave mine
away.

Hi, Sandy - I'm glad my website helped you find it. It will be a great gift for your great grandchild!

I am looking for the Jamie pastel yarn for this blanket. I have the pattern, have been making this set for over 22 years, but can't find the lt lavender thread I need now. Do you have any idea where I could find at least one skein of it?

Thanks, Patsy

Hi, Patsy - My suggestion is to search ebay.com. It may take a while, but someone surely may be selling one eventually.
