Beautiful Projects – Rainbow Knitting

by Ysolda Teague June 07, 2016 1 min read

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!

Say hello to my new favourite Elijah! This one was knit by gingerknitja and is so adorable with his little rainbow body I keep going back to stare at it – such a clever version!

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!
