Rainbow Afghan Pattern

Finally I found the pattern that I was looking for and is with the step by step. The pattern that I share with you is the Rainbow Afghan, which is a very fun pattern to make and brings me enormous joy.

It is a pattern that reminds me of a rainbow of all colors that is used and for you a curve imitating a rainbow and then the white as if it were the clouds, simply fantastic to see and also to do.

It must be a unique sensation to see the result. Enjoy that this pattern is intermediate level so it is not so difficult to do, but as I always say, nothing that willpower and dedication does not make it possible to make an incredible pattern even if it is not at the level of the pattern.

Full Fan: making 35 colored and 3 white
Start at the bottom with A, ch 2,

ROW 1: Sc on the second ch from hook.ch 1 turn. From this point on ch 1, it should turn at the end of each line you make, unless otherwise noted.

ROW 2: (right side); 3 sc in sc.

ROW 3: 2 sc in the first sc-inc. did; sc at the next sc, 2 sc at the last sc – inc. made – 5 sc.

In Sinks: 4-11: continue to increase the points on the first and last sc until you have 21 sc.

ROW 12: 2 sc in the first sc * sc in each of the next 4 SC, 2 SC in the next SC; repeat 3 times more – 26sc.


ROW 13: Sc on each sc through. Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc of the next line), rotate.

ROW 15: sc in each dc – 28 sc. Ch 3, turn around.

    I am crocheting this for a ‘rainbow’ baby. Want to make half the size. So 24 by 32. Don’t know how to convert the rainbows to smaller size. Can you advise?
