Knit some rainbows as badges, jewellery, bag charms, to hang from mobiles, or to make a rainbow pride banner.

I have added toy filling to make a puffy rainbow, but you could leave your rainbow free of stuffing so it lies flatter if you prefer.

TECHNIQUES: The rainbow is knitted in one piece and worked flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work decreases, and sew seams.


  • A pair of straight 3.25mm knitting needles (US 3)
  • 4 ply yarn; a few grammes per colour
  • A few handfuls of toy filling or cotton wool balls to stuff

The pattern is 1 page and written in English.
