Colors of the Rainbow: 17 Crochet Patterns

Have you ever wondered where all the colors of the rainbow came from? I find rainbows absolutely fascinating. There might be the strongest, darkest rainstorm that never seems to end, but then all of a sudden the sun shines and you see this beautiful nature built art. The colors of the rainbow tend to catch my eye and even though it's only there for a few seconds, I tend to capture a mental picture to remember it. In order to keep that image alive you can make a rainbow pattern.

Rainbow crochet patterns are really fun to make because you can obviously choose and use multiple colors of the rainbow. If you're used to crocheting projects with drab dark colors like shades of black and gray then get out of that funk. Find some bright shades of red, orange, green, blue and any other crochet colors you can get your hands on. You can even crochet a rainbow pattern in the same color using different shades. I think that would make a pretty neat design. Since the spring season is here and April usually comes with showers, we might be seeing quite a few rainbows in the near future. Let's see what great rainbow crochet patterns you can make.

Rainbow Pattern: Wearables

When I see the colors of the rainbow put together in one pattern it just makes me smile. As I said earlier, I love bright colors! When you can wear all those colors of the rainbow in one outfit, it's just so fun. Okay, an entire outfit might be a bit much, but that's what accessories are for.

I love making multicolored afghans, especially since my living room is a neutral color. Using bold colors really makes the room come to life.
