Rainbow Crochet Patterns

What better way to welcome spring than with a colorful bunch of crochet patterns! There is something so wonderful and cheerful about rainbows, and I can’t think of anything better than a rainbow crochet pattern! If you have been around here awhile you’ve probably noticed that I am rather fond of colorful crochet, and I couldn’t resist putting together a collection of patterns so that you can join me in crocheting a rainbow too! So read on to find the perfect rainbow crochet pattern for you!

What I love most about rainbows is that they don’t have to follow the traditional Roy G Biv. You can make something in a gorgeous rainbow of pastels, an ombré of similar hues, bright neons, or even stunning neutrals! All you need to do is pick a few shades that coordinate and make a gorgeous project!


Pro tip: If you have a hard time choosing which colors go together, you can take a photo and turn it black and white. You are looking for a color combination that has a variety of lights and darks, which is easier to see in a black and white photo! 😊
