Rainbow Afghan Free Crochet Pattern

*This post may contain affiliate links.


I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

This beautiful, timeless pattern will be perfect both as a bedspread or a nursery blanket. An eye-catching pattern in a shape of shells alternating with rainbows, it makes for one of the most unique textures among afghans. Although the rainbow hues are very characteristic for this pattern, you can try more neutral colors, like in a blue palette. A link to a free pattern is at the end of the post.

    I just started mine last night. The only difference I noticed in the pattern is that I chose to do the color opposite of craftin granny as here red was at bottom of the rainbow and I wanted it flipped.
