Cheeky Rainbows

Inspired by the Adult’s Rainbow Smiles Sweater, Cheeky Rainbows is a child’s version of the top down raglan pullover. With a gentle v-neck and rainbow chevron, this is a close fitting pullover aimed at bringing a splash of colour and a smile to the wearer!

Skill Level
You will need to know how to work basic crochet stitches, basic increases and decreases, work in the round and count!
The pattern calls for use of foundation chains (which are explained), but modifications are given if you prefer to work into a starting chain.

The pattern is worked using a 4mm hook (or as needed to meet gauge and 450 - 800m of 4ply / lightweight yarn in total.
You will need approximately 5-10g / 30-50m of each colour used for the stripes depending on which size you make.

The sweater is written in 6 sizes from 2yrs to 11-12 years.
Because of the variation in child’s size and ages, I would refer you to the measurements. I also recommend trying the sweater on as you work (which is easy as it uses the top down method) so you can easily adjust the fit as you go. There is guidance on adjustments throughout the pattern and I have added an appendix at the end, suggesting how you might want to tailor the sweater to the fit.
