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 😉

Crocheting a Rainbow with Scheepjes Stone Washed and River Washed Cutie Pies

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.Scheepjes Stone Washed (and XL Cutie Pies)

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.
