We're glad you joined and posted your link, great job! This pattern has tickled the fancies of a lot of us around here, so thanks again, everkutz, for sharing it with us, you have definitely started a trend.

Now that you're amongst crafty friends, stealtheshow, I'm sure you'll be finding all sorts of things to whip up for yourself and others. My favorite way of seeing what's new is to go to the home page and click on the "Recent With Pics" button to the left of the menu. I also explore the forums, there's some fabulous crafting goin' on there. I hope you stick around and maybe even join one of the many swaps that go on around here. Again, welcome to Craftsters!

Welcome to Craftster, Stealtheshow!  Nice rainbow scarf!

Crocheting is like prostitution.  First you do it for love, and then for a few close friends, and then for money.  Maybe that is why they call us Hookers?

Thanks! I used the crochet circle method on Happy Hooker, and was kind of sad when I was done with all my circles, I had so much fun!

Thanks everyone for the great comments!

This scarf is way too easy to need a pattern!  There is only 1 row of each color and each row is done in double crochet.  Remember, the colors of the rainbow are ROY G BIV..Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet.  So begin with the violet or red if you wish, and make a chain for as long as you want the scarf to be plus 3 chains for turning, and begin double crocheting the length of the chain.  When you get to the end, tie off and begin with the next color.  Repeat for all colors and the rainbow part is done! 


Hi, just a question...do you fasten off and start the next row at the first stitch of the last row, or do you continue on to the back?

So it's like working left to right, then right to left, or do you do every row from the right?

I turn mine with each row. I don't actually cut the yarn at each end of the row, I like to just pick up the next color at the end on my last pull-through of the yarn, chain and then turn so there's no knot to worry about. I work both strands into the first few stitches, snip off the previous color and continue "hiding" it and go on from there.

All of that said, everyone has their own way of crocheting, so I would encourage you to experiment. I hope you post a photo of your scarf when you've finished it!

Hmm...okay...I've been going with the Debbie Stoller "Stripes and Stripes Forever" pattern, 'cept doing it in DC...so I've been cutting off each end and starting from the beginning again.

I will definitely post a photo when I'm done! Cheesy
