This is an easy and colourful pattern that little rainbows of all ages will love. Four sizes are given - baby, toddler, child, and teen/adult - with guidance on further adjustments for smaller or larger heads.
The skills required are beginner level - you will need to be able to cast on, knit in the round, purl, and to knit two stitches together. It uses DK (light worsted) or aran (worsted) weight yarn on 5mm (US 8) needles.
This pattern will take you through the seven colours of the traditional rainbow in the conventional order (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet) with all the colour changes clearly indicated and the decreases mapped out so you don’t need to worry about the arithmetic and can just get on with enjoying the knitting!
There is basic guidance on altering the number of stitches to fit slightly smaller or larger heads in the pattern. I offer email support so I can also advise you personally should you wish to make greater changes in sizing.
You will be able to download the pattern from etsy once you have paid. If you have any problems doing this please convo me as I can easily email it if you prefer!

No, I’d like you to buy some yarn!
Wholesale prices are 2/3 retail prices plus postage with a minimum purchase of 20 skeins or equivalent weight of yarn.
Almost all my yarn is superwash treated, so you can use the wool cycle on your washing machine, although hand washing is kinder if you have the time.
I choose acid dyes rated “wash fast” or “very wash fast” at 30*C, and I test wash each colourway. Nonetheless it is sensible to wash items separately on the first occasion as with any fibre or garment.
If you put my yarn in on long hot washes with fast spins, harsh detergents and stain remover they will age and fade much faster. This is not my fault, wool is like that, and you make your choices.
