Hi all! 

Emma here :)

Today's post bring you the final piece of the rainbow puzzle!

Before we start, I'd just like to thank you all for joining in on this rainbow adventure! Let's have a look at our progress so far:

We began with Part 1: Raspberry Red 

And continued with Part 2: Mango Orange.

Part 3: The Banana yellow section came along next

Then came Part 4: Lime Green

Part 5: The Blueberry section really brought the rainbow into view

Part 6: Boysenberry Purple transformed the blanket once more!

And now - Part 7 - Strawberry! 

the yarn used is Cicibebe Sprinkles in colour #595-01

If you are after the convenience of the pattern in a single document, one can be purchased at this link. The pattern will also remain on the blog. 


Below a shot of all the colours used, and good news! You can get them all in a kit! (Kit contains seven balls of cicibebe and the PDF document)

Quick reminder: this pattern uses a 5 mm hook

Pattern Repeat: Ch 3, (sc, ch 1) in each ch-1 sp across to last ch-1 sp, sc in last ch-1 sp, sl st in ch-3 sp, turn.

(remember: the 1st sc of each row is in the chain space after the (sl st, sc) make sure you don't miss it.)

Join new yarn by undoing previous stitch by one step, and replace with Strawberry yarn. Do not cut yarn between colour changes until instructed

Row 264 – 265: Two rows in Boysenberry. (92 sc)
