If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen a rainbow growing over the last month or so.
A while ago Scheepjes sent me a couple of Stone Washed and River Washed cutie pie colour packs to play with, and I immediately started planning how I could make something which would use every single colour and this rainbow wrap was born.
Let me tell you a little about the cutie pies. They come in two packs, one in regular stone/river washed, and the other in XL.
The regular Stone Washed come in 10g balls, with 26m of yarn. I was able to get 300 UK trebles (US double) from a ball with a 5mm hook. The XL come in 15g balls with 22.5m of yarn. I haven’t tested how many stitches this works out to be, because I’m saving the yarn – I have a special idea brewing, so we’ll have to wait for more info there…
But, back to the rainbow.
I decided to make something of a giant zigzag and although it took me a while to make it work, the end result is beautiful.
Now here’s the link to the pattern; RainBOOM!
You’ll need an entire Stone Washed/River Washed cutie pie colour pack, which you can pick up from most Scheepjes retailers, including:
Wool Warehouse* (for UK and global shipping)
Caro’s Atelier* (in the Benelux and Europe)
Black Sheep Wools* (in the UK)
Knotty House* (US and Canada)
Snufflebean Yarn (in the UK)
Lastly, you should check out Matt from A Boy and Bunting’s fun and fabulous Youtube review of the yarn, he dives right in and talks about everything you need to know.
It was so lovely to meet you at yarndale, look forward to the pattern, 💕 from a fellow Aussie

This is just stunning, and such a great way to use these mini balls of yarn. I might have to add this to my future makes list
