Rainbows are spreading joy and messages of support and gratitude for Keyworkers all over the world through this difficult time we are all facing.

I’m delighted to share this happy rainbow pattern with you free on my blog.

It measures 6” wide x 3” high when made using Aran weight yarn. You can substitute with DK and it will be just a little smaller. It uses a small amount of cotton in each of the rainbow colours so is perfect for using up scrap yarn.

It’s an easy pattern, suitable for beginners. You will need knowledge of how to do the basic stitches of chain, half double crochet and also how to change colour.

The rainbow is worked as a circle and folded in half to create a sturdy shape that hangs well with no need for stiffening.

This style is perfect for hanging in the window as it is the same on both sides.

You can also stuff it to make a cute 3D rainbow.

I’d love to see your finished rainbows. Add your projects on Ravelry and tag me @thecraftytherapist or use the tags: #thecraftytherapist #rainbowofgratitude #rainbowofthanks

Have fun making them.
