Did you have a good weekend? Here the weather has turned to rain, we just had a big thunderstorm here! And the sky just looks a dark grey, where has all the colour gone, I ask you....
But I found the answer - you can always crochet a rainbow!!!!
And that is exactly what I did!
My Rainbow Circles Wrap
You might remember that I am also currently working on the Scheepjes CAL 2015 to make the Flights of Fancy Shawl, I mentioned about it here in my earlier post. I am very busy with this project right now and I hope to show it to you as soon as it is finished (there are 75 motifs that need to be joined!)
I knew that I would enjoy working with the new Scheepjeswol Linen Soft yarn and I instantly fell in love with the wonderful large palette of colours. So I ordered quite a lot of different colours, more than I needed for the CAL.
And then inspiration struck and I had an idea for a shawl....
...and this is the result! Ta-dah!!!

How I made my crochet Wrap
I started with a lime colour with a row of circles and then slowly added more colours, row after row.
Here I laid out my ideal colours.... (later I changed one of the colours)
But I continued to add more colours...
Here are some photos of the finished Wrap with all 12 rainbow colours! You can see that I decided to add some dangly tassels in the shape of more circles. In true funkycrochet manner, I varied the length of the dangles.
Wearing my Rainbow Circles Wrap with a wooden Shawl pin or alternatively, as a cosy scarf around my neck! It is very versatile!
I am very proud how this design has turned out, from the inspiration to the finished Wrap! And I love this yarn, it has a nice weight and drape to it, the stitches look well defined.
Also the pattern was fun, I enjoyed seeing it grow!
I can see lots of more possibilities, varying the colours, making a thinner or wider version, with more or less colours....
Well, I hope you enjoyed this post today and that it has brought a bit of (virtual) sunshine and a colourful rainbow into your life!
Have a great week! And if you want to leave me a comment, then please do! You know I love to hear from you all...
