I choosed the name "The 4 Rainbows" because I used 28 different colors to create the multistitch length: burgundy, red, orangish red, dark orange, neon orange, mustard yellow, sun yellow, light yellow, light lime green, lime green, sunburnt grass green, green, dark green, emerald green, christmas tree green, dark teal, teal, turquoise, blue, dark blue, royal blue, purple, indigo, violet, lilac, magenta, pink and multicolor fancy fur yarn for decorating the edgings.

Just like putting together 4 rainbows!

I crocheted a simple rainbow vintage doily inspired mandala for the back of this second hand green cardigan and sewn a green star button in the middle for contrasting the red center.

Closed with 3 royal blue buttons.

Made of recycled, vintage and new mixed wool and acrylic yarns.

This made me smile. What an awesome sweater...and so many colors! I love it. I would love to have a peek at your yarn stash. I have a feeling it's probably beautiful and awesome.

Thank You very much! Oh well... I have no home anymore... My stash has eaten it! I have yarnballs hanging from the roof, the bookshelves are covered with them, I can't find my bed anymore and all my chairs are disappeared too!  Grin I have the feeling that I need to move to another house...  Wink

Lovely as always and I, too, love the colours.

Thank You elderflower!  Kiss

Thank You!!! I am (was?!) a shopaholic for many years and I bought everything I fell in love with all around the world regardless of the size... So now I have something like 1000 different clothes, shoes, bags and umbrellas to upcycle! It was a benediction to discover to be able to crochet!  Wink

Thank You both Audania1 and Alexus1325 (yes, You are one of those few who are following my travel in the world of crochet since the beginning... I recognize Your name and profile picture! <3 )!  Kiss
