It’s the RainBOOM! Crochet Pattern Launch

Happy Spring to the Northern Hemisphere! And I’m also thinking that for many antipodeans autumn is a welcome relief from the summer heat.

I used to dream about that first frost when I lived in Alice Springs to come and kill all the flies and bring with it those gorgeous sunny days – days which are still warmer than the average dutch summer.  Sigh.

Anyway, today is RainBOOM! day.  I have the free pattern of my latest Scheepjes design to share with you, are you ready?

Notes

This is a beginner friendly pattern, designed to use all 50 colours of the Scheepjes Stone Washed and River Washed colour pack.

The wrap will be constructed in two pieces, working back and forth in rows. First making two triangles, then diagonal rows, and finally joining the two pieces and adding tassels from the leftovers.  There will be minimal yarn left over, so do pay attention to your tension. Use either colour 801 or 803 and make a swatch.

At the end of each row you should ch2 and turn, this will not count as a stitch throughout. The instruction is only mentioned in row 1, as a reminder.

While making the triangle, the rows will increase by 3 stitches each side (6 per row), with an increase at the flat edge, and also in the ch space.

Weave in your ends as you go, this will vastly reduce the amount of work at the end of the project.

Where the colour number is noted at the beginning of a row (801), you should change tie off at the previous row and start using the next colour.

Block to size, enjoy!

Here it is, laid out on the ground to give you an idea of the size.  I didn’t have a $20 note for scale, so the bunny (who has serious FOMO and has to be in the middle of everything) will have to do 😉

  1. Hi! I really love this pattern and really want to make it as my mum bought me the colour pack for my birthday! But my colour numbers seem to be different? Do you know why this is? Would you be able to indicate on your pattern roughly what the colour is in a description so I can try to match mine as closely as possible? Thanks!

    • First: happy birthday!

      I don’t know how your colour numbers could be different, unless there is a mistake in the pattern.

      What I did to get the order was, I took all the colours out and put them in the best order I could from white to black. I’d recommend sorting them like that too, then you can easily substitute the numbers.

      • Thanks! I think I’ve discovered since writin the comment that the numbers are different because of batch no’s. But I’ve found something with your no’s and the names of the colours are the same (like moonstone). My other question is with the magic ring youdont state how many stitches to do it with …. or do you just do it with one stitch? Thank you so much!

      • Hey Katy, row 1 is all worked into the magic ring.

        I’m not quite sure what you mean about the colours. Have I listed batch numbers instead of Colour numbers?

        Regards, Nerissa

      • O brilliant thank you! No I think you have done colour no’s but in my set the colours all seem to be numbered 40 ahead. So your 801 is 841 in mine but they are both still called moonstone. So I wonder if they ran out of the original batch or something and then released with new numbers? But I’ve managed to figure out the order now so looking forward to getting started!
