rainBOOM! Wrap – Crochet Pattern with UK Terms

Welcome!

I’ve updated the the rainBOOM! Wrap pattern, just in time to kick off the #rainBOOMMAL in collaboration with Scheepjes. Is this the first you’ve heard of it? All the info can be found in this post.

Before we start, if you’re looking for the version which uses US terms go here, and the Dutch translation can be found here.

In this version you can find the pattern using UK terminology. I also have a tips and tricks post (this will be live on Wednesday 30th January) which talks about all the little things that you may find to be a bit challenging, including a couple of short videos which should help if you get stuck at all.

Notes

This is a beginner friendly pattern, designed touse all 50 colours of the Scheepjes Stone Washed and River Washed colourpack. 

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 payattention to your tension. Use either colour 801 or 803 and make a swatch.

At the start of each row you should ch2, thiswill not count as a stitch throughout. At the end of each row you should turnyour work. The instruction is only mentioned in rows 1 and 2, as a reminder.

While making the triangle, the rows willincrease by 3 stitches each side (6 per row), with an increase at the flatedge, and in the ch space. Weave in your ends as you go, this will vastlyreduce 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 tie off at the previous row and start using the next colour.

[815]
[825]
[953]
[951]
[954]
[826]
[806]
[819]

Make sure you always start your new colour on the long side, not where you tied off on the short side. This will ensure that you always have a straight edge on both sides.

Repeat rows 38 and then 37 with colour [827], then saving a long tail, whip stitch the two pieces together, with the long edge of piece two matching up with the point of piece one. Don’t pull the stitches too tight, otherwise a ridge will appear.

Tassels

Separating the leftover colours from piece one and piece two, cut 30-40cm lengths, and double stranded, knot tassels in each stitch along both short (diagonal) sides. Adjust spacing according to the amount of remaining yarn. Block to size, enjoy!

Chart

Do note: the chart is just an example of how you should begin, and how the diagonal rows are worked. Please do not follow this exactly from the start, but instead use it as a guide.
