It’s lovely to see rainbows at any time but June in particular is great month for them as people all over the world celebrate LGBT Pride Month. And of course they frequently appear in knitting projects too, so for today, here are some great rainbow projects to admire!
Cadeautje is also a great pattern to show off a rainbow of colours, and this pair made by jackiesmith is a great example. We have a tutorial too on working the thrums, you just need to use a rainbow of fibre to get the effect. Bex also wrote a post here on how she made her own pair.
Shawls are another fun way to try out a rainbow of colours, and the unusual shape of the Follow Your Arrow shawls (depending on which options you choose) can work really well. In chamaecyparis’s project the short rows and change of knitting direction really show off those striking colours!
I’m so glad that catbus knit a rainbow pair of Kaerlig mitts as I was so curious to see how it would. The mitts have a really unusual, but fascinating construction so a colour-changing pair was always going to be interesting to see, and to knit, and they turned out so well!
.... And it's a big one! Usually, the sale runs across a set number of days and things get pretty fast paced around here with shipping and customer service emails. With the need to continue to prioritise staff safety and a smaller team than usual, we decided to make this a whole birthday month.
