I can't stop crocheting rainbows, I'm still in love with the blended technique and making often variations on the same theme. So here are the "sisters"...  Wink

The first one is methodical, I changed 1 colour in every round:




The second one I made with left yarns from the first blanket and changed colours only when they finished. This makes accidental soft pastel shades:





For both of them I used 100% italian cotton, number 5-8 (I couldn't find all of the colours in the same size, but it's not a problem with these projects because I put together several yarns and in this way thickness isn't changed that much).

I won't stop repeating that I can't read/write patterns. Anyway You can find it with google if You search for "spider web"!  Grin

I hope You like them! All comments are appreciated!  Kiss

Very very beautiful. I'm a huge fan of rainbows, and have also been planning on doing a similar knit/crochet technique with multiple strands to create a blended appearance...yours turned out pretty much how I imagined! I'm definitely more inspired to do this now. I love this, it's so gorgeous!

oddacity: Let's colour this grey world! Good luck!  Grin

thenorm02: Thank You!

titancia: Thanks a lot! (the second one is only fortune... Wink)

kitschbitch:  Kiss

krissy-poo: Blending technique: choose the colours You want to use. If they are the colours of the rainbow, it's easy to create their order (red, orange, yellow, green, turquoise, indigo, violet). Take 3 yarns of each colour (3 reds, 3 oranges... etc.). Start with the combination "red-red-red", second round: "red-red-orange", third round: "red-orange-orange", fourth round: "orange-orange-orange" and do the same with the rest of the colours! I hope it helps.  Wink

KristenNicole: Let her work! Cheesy

Great job!  I have a thing for colorful crocheted things.  I've been working on this one for about two years.  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=221871.0  Kudos for finishing two!
