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! 

For the clouds, I used the magic circle and chained 3, and then 11 double crochets for the first round of the circle (total 12 double crochets), then slip stitch into the top of the chain 3.  Round 2: chain 3 in the slip stitch and 1 double crochet in the same stitch, and 2 double crochets in each remaining stitch around for 24 dbl crochets.  Slip stitch in the top of the chain 3 and tie off. 
You get to repeat this lovely little circle for as many times as you want--for whatever shape you plan on making your clouds.  I did 5 circles per cloud front and 5 circles per cloud back, on EACH end of the rainbow for a total of 20 circles. Sew the circles together in the shape of the cloud and sew to attach to the scarf ends.  Making a front and back to each cloud does make the ends of the scarf heavy and I suppose you could easily take white felt cut in the shape of your cloud and stitch for the back of your clouds.  I wanted a front and back to my clouds for a finished look.  I didn't like the way the scarf looked with only the cloud front sewn on, like in the last picture I posted in my initial post. 

That about does it!  It is simple and fast!  It will take you at least 2 to 3 times as long to make and sew the clouds as it will to make the rainbow part!

I hope you all make a rainbow scarf or two!  While you're at it, make a toilet paper scarf too!  Or a rattlesnake scarf, or a caution tape or police tape scarf!  I've made them all except the caution and police tape scarves.  Those are next on my list! 

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 SO MUCH for the directions, especially for the clouds! I've been wanting to crochet something lately but didn't want to get into a big ol' project, this one sounds like it'll do it for me.

BTW, I just read the quote listed below your posts...hysterical!

awesome! I'd love to have one also.
Where did I put my pliers this time???

this scarf made me join craftster after 3/4 years of lurking! this is so cool  Smiley i have already scampered to my largely double knit (sport) yarn stash to pull yarns for this project, and i am practically eating my hand in anticipation of starting!

is it any coincidence that the word yearn is one letter away from being yarn?

I must make this.

I showed this thread to one of my daughters and told it looked like something I could do (for once), but she made one for me! Then she made one for my Oz secret pal's birthday this past week (I belong to an on-line club called Everything Oz) and she went absolutely gah-gah over it. She posted on the board and said, "I don't know whether to wear it or hang it up, it's so beautiful!"

So thank you again for sharing this awesome scarf with us...I plan to make a few for my other Oz friends at Christmas-time. Wink
