Rainbow Spirit: Work in Progress on My New Free Crochet Pattern



Last week when I showed you the exciting yarn combination I had chosen for a new free pattern project, I promised to publish some work-in-progress pictures soon. Well, here they are..... Aren't the colours lovely? I've called the design Rainbow Spirit - a combination of Scheepjes Catona in 11 bright rainbow colours plus Scheepjes Spirit yarn* in a neutral shade. You can read more about this yarn in my previous post.


What I did is work with one strand of each yarn together to get very beautiful muted colours and a modern tweed-like effect. I opted for a very classic spider-web pattern that I then designed in such a way that you can work it in strips. This of course means that you can make this item as large or as small as you want it to be. But what is it? I think you can guess but for now I'll just finish it so that I can reveal all next week.

You can expect the pattern in about twee weeks' time. In case you're interested in trying this lovely yarn combination and thinking of making this design even though you haven't seen the final result,  I used 3 balls of Scheepjes Spirit (Shade 303 Eagle) and 11 25g balls of Catona mercerized cotton worked together with a 5mm hook. The previous post lists all the Catona shades I used. Below you'll find information on where you can buy the yarn.
