Rainbow Crochet-A-Long

Crochet is a big love of mine and getting to team up with the lovely Jodie from @jellywares for a project is super exciting - so much so we would for you to join us in a Rainbow Blanket Crochet-A-Long.   We will be using the hashtag - #rainbowCAL to record our progress, post updates, answer questions and share what we are all creating together.  So come and join us over on Instagram (@tiedwitharibbon) for some inspiration and great fun.  



Inspired by Matt's Rainbow Granny Square Blanket we are aiming for a blanket along these lines.  We will be joining the squares as we go and then putting this beautiful Pom Pom Trim by Once Upon a Pink Moon, on for the border.

Jodie and I will be each using the same patterns but will each do a different variation so that you can choose which way you would like to make it for yourself.




Jodie will be using 18 shades of an 8ply Cotton/Acrylic blend to make her Rainbow Granny Squares and is aiming to make 540 squares with 3 rounds (of the same colour) in each Granny Square. Jodie recognises this is ambitious but those up for a challenge and great fun then this amount is achievable.

I will be using a smaller amount of colours - 9 shades of Rico Cotton Essentials to make my Rainbow Granny Square and aiming for 270 squares with 3 rounds (of the same colour) in each Granny Square.  Mine will be a smaller blanket for those who have a stash of fewer colours or maybe you are only just starting out and want the pace to move a little slower

We are kicking off this Friday - February 13th with an 8 week work time to finish our Rainbow Granny Squares Blanket on April 5th.

Looking forward to seeing what you all create.
