The Last Row: #rainBOOMMAL

It’s been a busy month!  I’ve loved seeing everyone’s rainBOOM! wraps growing and being shown off all over the internet, and in real life.

Today I’m staring at my very last cutie pie ball of Scheepjes Stone Washed, hoping to finish it this afternoon.

Once I’m done, I will then tidy up the ends and evaluate the leftovers to create the tassels. I’m totally inspired by all the interpretations of the tassels, I’m excited to get on with it.

I think I’m going to go with the ombre look I’m seeing:

So I think I’m going to do that! But I’m also loving all the blended colours too:

rainBOOM! Wrap MAL – It’s Launch Day!

I’ve been truly overwhelmed over the last two weeks since the team at Scheepjes announced this exciting collaboration.

Overwhelmed by the positive response, overwhelmed by the number of people who want to participate, overwhelmed to hear that retailers are already selling out of colour packs!

For those of you who have waited until today to start, I have a few resources to help you on your way.

The home page for all things rainBOOM! is here. It has everything consolidated in one place, so you’ll be able to find everything easily:

#rainBOOMMAL

Patterns

The patterns are available in a couple of places. If you want to show me some financial support, you can buy the printable pattern from Ravelry for a small fee, or you can get your hands on it via my blog. There are three versions: US terms, UK terms, and in Dutch. Here are the links:

English US

English UK

Dutch

Once you have the pattern, you need to make sure you take a look at the tips and tricks. There are a few points you need to take care to remember, the most of which is your tension. I sound like a broken record, but if you are a loose crocheter, you will run out of yarn in the diagonal rows!

So, if you know from the outset that you crochet loosely, please try a half or full hook size smaller. I have specifically chosen to use a larger hook size for this design to increase the drape, but there is very little yarn left at the end of each diagonal row, it’s an exercise in yarn chicken – especially if you crochet on the looser side.

This, and more tips, plus a couple of videos are all in the post that I’ve written. Do please bear in mind that I talk and crochet really fast, but thankfully you can change the speed settings in the video by clicking the little cog or the three vertical dots, depending on your device.

Tips, Tricks and a some video help

Facebook Groups

Don’t forget that to make the most of this MAL, head over to one of the Scheepjes Facebook groups to join the fun. We’re all going to be sharing our progress pics and helping each other with the tricky bits there.

If you’re not a member, you can join the international group (English language) here, or if you’re more comfortable in Dutch, you can join that one here.

All the announcements and support will be via those two groups, and I will be around each day along with the fabulous unsung heroes who make up the admin team to answer any questions and offer advice when needed. You can contact me directly via email, but the fastest response will be in one of those two groups. Feel free to tag me if you would like me to specifically see your post. I’ll be doing my best to keep up, but those groups are so busy that it’ll be a challenge to see even half of the posts!

rainBOOM! Wrap Tips and Tricks, and Video Help

Welcome to my tips and tricks post for the rainBOOM! Wrap.

Choosing Your Yarn Pack

When Scheepjes first released their Stone and River Washed colour packs in 2018, they were a roaring success, selling out in short order. I know that there are a lot of you who bought a pack just to look at, or to display, or to use, but no sure what to actually make with it.

Also, since then Scheepjes has brought out 8 new ochre based river washed colours, and the packs have been out of stock almost everywhere for a little while now.

Some great news is, the packs are all available to purchase again, and the new packs all contain the 8 new colours!

As a result of this, I’ve created two versions of the rainBOOM! pattern. One using the original pack, and the other with the 8 new colours blended in!

So it doesn’t matter which pack you have, there’s a rainBOOM! for you. And if you want to make the extended version, but have the original colour pack, these are the colours you need to get your hands on:

And here’s what the new colour pack looks like:

Getting Started

While the pattern is straight forward with only a couple of different stitches being used, there are a few little parts which you might find a little bit tricky.

I’ve created a couple of videos if you want to have a look. The first shows you how to get started, by making your magic ring and working the first few rows back and forth:

You’ll see that in the pattern I’ve noted that at the beginning of each row you should chain 2. This never counts as a stitch. When changing colours, feel free to use a standing treble (US double) crochet if you prefer. I’m a ch2 kinda girl myself.

Matching Gauge

Once you get going, the pattern is really very simple. You just need to pay close attention to your gauge (or tension), because if you crochet loosely you’ll need to go down a half or full hook size. The wrap is made using a 5 mm hook although the yarn itself calls for a 3-3.5mm. I did this on purpose. I wanted to increase the drape, as if you’re working with a 3mm hook, the fabric will remain quite dense and not drape as well.

If you find your stitches to be very open and loose, and you’re unable to match gauge, please do try again with a smaller hook because otherwise you will come into trouble when it comes to making your diagonal rows – there is only very little yarn left over after making each set of rows when matching gauge.

Working the diagonals

Speaking of the diagonal rows, I’ve made a second short video to show you how and where you need to increase and decrease to make sure you get a flat parallel edge:

In the instructions you’ll see:

Repeat rows Repeat rows 38, 37 and 38 (as a set of three rows) 16 times, changing colour every 3 rows

This means you should work sets of three rows; starting with row 38, then repeat row 37 and 38 again. These three rows make up your diagonal stripes. What it basically means is, on the first row of the set you increase, work to the last 2 then decrease in the last two. Then turn and work row 37 by decreasing in the first 2, then working to the last, increasing in the very last stitch. Turn one more time and work row 38 again, increasing in the first stitch, and then work each stitch across as normal to the last 2, then decrease. From there, tie off and weave in the ends.

Repeat this for each colour of the diagonal stripes, except the last colour. With that last colour you need to only work 38 then 37, leaving a long tail (about 40cm) to whip stitch the diagonal to the first triangle.

Don’t forget: when making the diagonals, you will always start each set of three rows on the longest side, and tie off on the shortest.

Tassels

Once you’re all finished, it’s time to add the tassels, which are arguably my favourite part. What you should do is, gather up all the remaining ends and divide them into warm and cool colours, and then with lengths of between 30 and 40 cm, knot them double stranded onto each end of the wrap.

I didn’t bother cutting my tassels perfectly. I just broke each into lengths and left the ends to be soft and layered, but if you prefer, you can trim them all to the same length once you’re done.

Blocking

We all agree that blocking is essential to finishing off your crochet project to that higher level, and the rainBOOM! Wrap is no exception. Your long sides may have small bumps from your ch2 at the beginning of each row, so what you should do is soak your rainBOOM! in a tepid wool wash bath, and squeeze out the excess, pinning the wrap out making sure you pull your long sides so the bumps become invisible and the stitches are able to relax beautifully.

Alternatively, if you’re impatient like I am, pin your rainBOOM! out while it’s dry, making sure the sides are all straight, and your tassels are laid out smoothly, then using a spray bottle with a mixture of your favourite wool wash and water and soak it that way. Then the rainBOOM won’t take quite as long to dry and the results are just as good.

Either way, at least a day’s patience is needed because the stone/river washed takes a while to dry thanks to the cotton content.

rainBOOM! Wrap – Crochet Pattern with US 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 UK 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 (which will be online Wednesday 30th Jan) 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.

Repeat rows Repeat rows 38, 37 and 38 (as a setof three rows) 8 times, changing colour every 3 rows in the following order:

[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.

Repeat rows Repeat rows 38, 37 and 38 (as aset of three rows) 16 times, changing colour every 3 rows in the followingorder:

[948]
[815]
[825]
[953]
[958]
[955]
[951]
[954]
[826]
[806]
[819]
[827]
[962]
[812]
[959]
[832]

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 [809],then saving a long tail, whip stitch the two pieces together, with the longedge of piece two matching up with the point of piece one. Do not pull thestitches 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

Still looking for your yarn pack? There are loads of fabulous retailers all over the world where you can buy your yarn packs. Scheepjes has a complete list on their website and I have a few recommendations for you too:

Now, I do hope you’re joining the #rainBOOMMAL that’s running through all of February 2019. In collaboration with the amazing people at Scheepjes, we’ll be crocheting together, from all corners of the world, bringing some more colour into our lives.

#RainBOOMMAL – Nederlandse Versie

Great news! Along with the help of my friend Kirsten from Haak Maar Raak, I’ve translated my RainBOOM! wrap into Dutch! I did the basics, and she fixed the grammar. Isn’t she a star?!

Although I live in the Netherlands and speak Dutch, my confidence is low when it comes to the written language and pattern writing, which is why I don’t have many designs translated. I appreciate that this is frustrating for some of you, and it’s my mission to incorporate more Dutch-inclusive designs in 2019, starting with this one!

Looking for an english version of this pattern? You can find the UK version here and the US version here.

Ok, Klaar om te gaan?

Er staat een tips en tricks bericht hier (engels), ook met een paar youtube filmpjes over de begin steekjes en ook over meer en minderen. (woensdag 30e januari staat het online)

Opmerkingen

Dit is eenbeginner-vriendelijk patroon, om alle 50 kleuren van de Scheepjes Stone Washeden River Washed colour pack te gebruiken.

De omslagdoekzal in twee stukken worden gehaakt, in rijen. Eerst gaan we twee driehoeken makn, dan haken we diagonale rijen aan eenzijde van de driehoek, en uiteindelijk gaan we de twee stukken aan elkaarnaaien en franjes maken van de restjes. Je gebruikt vrijwel al het garen, dusmijn advies is: let goed op de stekenverhouding. Gebruik kleur 801 of803 als swatch.

Op het begin van elke rij haak je 2 lossen. Dit telt niet als een steek. Het is alleen in de eerste rij van de instructies opgenomen, maar geldt voor het hele patroon.

Elk rij vande driehoeken meerdert 3 steken op beide uiteindes, je meerdert dus in totaal 6steken per rij. Werk alle draadeindes weg bij elk nieuwe kleur, anders is hetheel veel werk op het eind van het project.

Aan het begin van een rij geef ik tussen haakjes aan welke kleur je moet gebruiken.

Verkooppunten

Er staat heleboel winkels op de Scheepjes website, en Caro’s Atelier* is dicht bij mij in de buurt.

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

Zorg dat je altijd de nieuwe kleur op de langste kant gaat beginnen, en op de kortste afhechten.

Herhaal rijen 38 en 37 met kleur [827], laat een lange draad over om de twee stukken aan elkaar te naaien. Zorg dat de lange kant van deel 2 uitlijnt met de punt van het andere deel. Trek de steken niet te strak aan, anders ontstaat er een opstaande rand.

[815]
[825]
[953]
[958]
[955]
[951]
[954]
[826]

[819]
[827]
[962]
[812]
[959]
[832]

Herhaal rijen38 en 37 met kleur [809], laat een lange draad over om de twee stukken aanelkaar te naaien. Zorg dat de lange kant van deel 2 uitlijnt met de punt vanhet andere deel Trek de steken niet te strak aan, anders ontstaat er eenopstaande rand.

Franjes

Hou de overgebleven kleuren van deel 1 en 2 apart. Knip stukken van 30-40 cm, en knoop ze met twee draden tegelijk aan de korte (diagonale) kanten. Verdeel je restjes gelijkmatig over de zijkanten. Block op maat, veel plezier!

Diagram

Belangijk: gebruik de tekening alleen als een voorbeeld, want alleen de eerste 4 rijen staat er, en hoe je moet de diagonale rijen gaan werken.

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.

Ready to go?

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.

[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.

Repeat rows Repeat rows 38, 37 and 38 (as a setof three rows) 16 times, changing colour every 3 rows in the following order:

[958]
[955]
[951]
[954]
[826]
[806]
[819]
[827]
[962]
[812]
[959]
[832]

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 [809], 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. Do not 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.

rainBOOM! MAL

I’m absolutely thrilled to be able to kick 2019 off with an exciting collaboration with Scheepjes, a make-along (MAL) with my favourite pattern of last year, the rainBOOM! Wrap!

Starting on the 1st of February and running through the entire month, we’ll make our rainBOOMs together, sharing the joy that it brings as the colours emerge. Feb also marks my 40th birthday, so this is extra special to me, celebrating with all of you in the most vibrant way possible!

I first made the rainBOOM! early in 2018, to celebrate the launch of the hugely popular Scheepjes Stone Washed and River Washed colour packs. I wanted to make something which used all 50 colours – something that I could enjoy every day and would be a celebration of all the colours.

I’m even more excited now, because Scheepjes has since added 8 new colours to the River Washed collection, and they’re launching a brand new colour pack to include them!

As a result, I’ve rewritten the pattern to include the new colours and I’m going to share it with you as part of this colourful MAL.

I’ve also recreated the pattern to include both UK and US terms, and with help from Kirsten, I’ve translated the pattern into Dutch as well.

Over the coming days, I’m going share some tips and tricks, along with the updated and translated patterns. Make sure you subscribe to the blog so you don’t miss the patterns as they’re (re)published.

Can’t wait for the posts to go live? The Dutch, US and UK patterns are all available as printer friendly pdfs on Ravelry. Get them here:

https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/rainboom-wrap

Facebook Groups

As this is a fun collaboration with Scheepjes, we’re going to be sharing our progress and all the relevant links in their Facebook CAL groups. If you’re not a member, you can join the international group (English language) here, or if Dutch is more your flavour, you can join that one here.

All the announcements and support will be via those two groups, and I will be around each day along with the fabulous unsung heroes which is the admin team to answer any questions and offer advice when needed. You can contact me directly via email, but the fastest response will be in one of those two groups.

Social

Of course I want to see you share your beautiful rainBOOM wraps as they grow, and I also want to be able to share your creations with the world each day!

On Instagram, please follow me @miss__neriss and @Scheepjes and use hashtags #rainBOOMMAL, #missneriss, #obsessedwithcrochet and #scheepjes

On Facebook, use the same hashtags, and don’t forget to mention me @madebymissneriss and @scheepjeswol

Most importantly: don’t forget to share your project on Ravelry! Also use tags #rainBOOMMAL and #rainBOOM

It’s the RainBOOM! Crochet Pattern Launch

Announcement:

If you’re here to access the rainBOOM! Wrap pattern today 21 January and the links below don’t work, that’s because I’ve been busy behind the scenes to update them.

The patterns will be available again Tuesday 22 January at 7 am CET.

Can’t wait? They’re all on Ravelry as pdfs for a small fee: rainBOOM! Wrap on Ravelry

Great news! I’ve updated this pattern to include both US and UK terms, and I’ve translated the design into Dutch!

The new patterns will replace this one, so as a result I’ve removed the pattern that you would ordinarily find here.

Instead, the new patterns can be found here:

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 😉
