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:

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.ย  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.ย  The XL come in 15g balls with 22.5m of yarn.ย  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.
