Rainbow applique

Here’s my first free pattern for you:







A lovely and very easy to do rainbow applique :)

You will find an english and a german version of the pattern below.



General Information

Yarn: any yarn you want, I used Nizza (Steinbach Wolle), 100% cotton, 50g, 150m.

Hook size: suitable hook for the yarn you are using. I used a 3,5 mm hook.

Note: You will use each colour of the rainbow for two rows (see row 3 and 4 below). I used 6 different colours, which makes 12 rows in total (without the chains!)

  2. 15 single crochets (sc), ch 1 , turn (colour a)
  3. 1 sc in each sc of the previous row, increase every 5th sc (make 2 sc in one sc of the pervious round), ch1, turn (colour a)
  4. one sc in each sc of the previous row (colour b)
  5. repeat row 3 (colour b)
  6. repeat row 4 (colour c)

  8. repeat row 4 and 3 as often as you want using different colours.
