Rainbow strip

06 Nov

I’ve been making colourful crochet granny squares for what seems like ages now! See my previous post here.

I haven’t finished making all the squares yet, but I wanted to start joining them together, to encourage me to keep making the squares.

I decided to use a soft, matt white yarn, as a cool modern background to all that colour, and as a contrast to the shiny yarn I’m using for the squares.

Here’s the first strip of rainbow colours put together:

I didn’t want the white border to be too wide, so after a bit of experimenting with the first and second squares, I decided to go for clusters of half treble stitches.

I’m really pleased with how it looks and I can just imagine more strips put together with it to make a small lap blanket. (Psst, have a look at the finished blanket here!)

Although I am slightly tempted to just stop here and wear this as a scarf! Perhaps if I have any spare squares left over…
