Rainbow Waves Throw Crochet Pattern

Free Crochet Pattern

Rainbow Waves Throw Pattern. It’s really neat looking.

Late last night and throughout today I have been working on a test sample of this Rainbow Waves Throw Crochet Pattern | Red Heart.

It was hard to see but I could see the afghan looked like it was stacked boxes and having a 3D look to it. I found the first 2 lines a bit tricky but once I got past that, the rest was pretty easy.

A few viewers suggested their dislike for doing back loops when it comes to crochet projects. There is definitely back loops being used for this to give it the look it has.

Like creativity, we should not be ‘boxed in’ with our ideas. So tonight, I am going to work on the same sample without doing back loops to see the different. Never know, it may not look as sharp… or it could look even better.

Either way, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and we must remember that when critiquing others tastes and project results. For me, if they like it, that’s all that matters. Together as community we should support each other and praise each other for our individuality and unique ideas.

I see patterns as a suggestion at times. If you want exactly what you see, follow the directions to a tee. If you want to try something different and add other things that are not in the design… there’s really nothing stopping you.

Life is short, why not explore creativity instead of duplicating it.

    I love the way the pattern looks. I don’t mind back loops, I have a problem with front and back posts but I’m willing to try anything. So many patterns have errors that I have a hard time breaking from my tried and true to try anything new. Now that I’ve found you Mikey, and your great tutorials I’m ready to try some new things. Thank you for everything you do for all for us.

    love your thoughts. sometimes we have to step outside our comfort zones. and sometimes when we do we find the most amazing things. God Bless,

  6. I really love the 3D effect this gives and, although I’ve never done a back loop stitch, the whole reason for me joining your group was to stretch myself, so I’ll definitely be giving this a go – once I’ve finished all the other luscious patterns you’ve been sharing with us 🙂
    Thank you for all your hard work, Mikey – it’s surely appreciated by this girl from the UK! 🙂
