Free pattern: Rainbow After the Storm Shawlette (Make it for Me!)

Rainbow After the Storm Shawlette, free #crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter in Bonita Yarns Kaleidoscopic. I’m so excited to share my pattern for the Make it for Me! Crochet-a-Long with ELK Studio.



This post contains affiliate links. Yarn for the sample was generously provided by Bonita Yarns.

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, one of my goals for 2016 I want to be more adventurous with color in projects that I crochet for myself. I usually stick to my favorite colors (purples and blues), so when I received these skeins from Bonita Yarns, I knew they would be perfect for this crochet-a-long.

Rainbow After the Storm Shawlette, free #crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter in Bonita Yarns Kaleidoscopic.I love making shawlettes for myself because I can wear them as scarves under my coat in the cold, and then use them as accessories over my clothes while I’m out. Being a native New Yorker, I have a lot of black in my wardrobe, so the Over the Rainbow colorway in Bonita Yarns Kaleidoscopic seemed like a great way to bring a little sunshine with me wherever I go.
