Here’s Why People are Crocheting Rainbows To Hang in Their Windows

I love finding happy things when the world seems a bit dark. This happens to be one of those happy things!

People are crocheting rainbows to hang in their windows and it’s awesome!

Ravelry created a pattern just for this very purpose. Bonus, they are sharing it for everyone for FREE.

Nowadays, we are having difficult days. I want my home to breathe happiness and optimism. So, I have crocheted a #rainbow to hang on my window. And I want to share the pattern with all of you!


So, people are doing it to spread a little happiness and joy right now. I can get on board with that!

I’ve seen others doing this to show appreciation and thanks to essential workers…

All you need is some yarn and a hook! It says it is very easy and quick and I am assuming perfect for beginners!

This is a free pattern, but she does ask that you tag her on Instagram with photos of the finished project. Her Instagram is knitting.sheep.

Hello Crocheters 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈 . I just wanted to reach out to say a BIG THANK YOU for your answer on my #CROCHETRAINBOW pattern. . . I feel overwhelmed with all the participation, messages and shares. Today, my project was mentioned by @raquelromerolocutora in the valencian radio @plazaradio 91.4. 🌈 . We are living difficult days and we can´t change them. However, we can manage the way we live with. 🥰 . For all of those who that asked me about the Crochet Rainbow Tutorial, I will be soon uploading it on my Youtube Chanel. . Stay tuned! . . ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Hola Crocheteras!🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈 . Aparezco por aquí para darles un GRACIAS ENORME por la gran acogida que tuvo mi patrón #arcoirisaganchillo . Estoy sobrecogida con la participación, los bonitos mensajes que me habéis enviado y todas las menciones. . . Hoy, incluso, mi iniciativa se comentó en el programa #obligacioneslasjustas en Plaza Radio 91.4 FM de #valencia . Estamos viviendo días difíciles y no podemos cambiar la situación. Sin embargo, sí que podemos elegir cómo vivirla. Muchas tenemos niños y no podemos permitirnos que nos vean flaquear. A raíz de este pensamiento, nació mi iniciativa con el fin de alegrar mi hogar y el vuestro. . Me lo habéis pedido y subiré un tutorial para tejer el arcoiris a mi canal de Youtube. ¡Estar atentas! . . . . . . . #crochetrainbow #crochettutorial #crocheting #crochetersofinstagram #crochetgirlgang #yomequedoencasatejiendo #crochetgeek #crochetinspiration #ourmakerlife #stayhome #ganchillocreativo #handmadecrafts #makersgonnamake #makersmovement #hechoamano #crafts #craftastherapy #creativehappylife #creativityfound #diycrafts #crochetcommunity
