Ok, I’m not American. But I’m so happy about their legalisation of gay marriage – I wish I’d been partying in San Francisco last night!
And who doesn’t love a rainbow or two? Here’s a round up of some of the best crochet rainbows I’ve seen in the online crochet world – enjoy!
Bright Rainbow Colour Palette from the Patchwork Heart
Every rainbow project has to start with a colour palette – and when it comes to rainbows, there’s nothing better than a Stylecraft Special DK palette! This one from the Patchwork Heart is perfect.
Everything at attic24
Lucy at attic24 has some of the best rainbows in the business! I’m a big fan of her blooming flower cushion – this post contains a full tutorial. Isn’t is gorgeous?
And I know it’s not Christmas, but oh I love Lucy’s Christmas wreath!
And while we’re on the subject of Lucy and her rainbows – check out this recent project, her colourblock cushion!
Rainbow mug cosies from three beans in a pod
Another tutorial – I love these cute and simple mug cosies from three beans in a pod. I can see me making use of this pattern for some gifts this Christmas!
While we’re at the three beans in a pod site, check out this beautiful rainbow baby blanket!
This free rainbow blanket pattern from Ravelry
I love this pattern – it looks like a series of rainbows brightening up a cloudy sky. And it’s a free pattern! Sign me up!
My favourite personal rainbow projects
I used all the colours of the rainbow and a few more on my Sophie’s Universe blanket!
If you follow me on Instagram you will have spotted my rainbow crochet granny stripe blanket in the background of a few of my pictures.
And my first ever crochet project was a rainbow ripple blanket!
I hope you’ve enjoyed my rainbows! Crochet is such a great way to use rainbow colours – I find myself doing it all the time.
And… congratulations America on your gay marriage ruling! 🙂
Until next time,
