So excited to share this!  I've been working on it for a few weeks now, having made a prototype, then frogged it, then made a new prototype, and finally this version.  The rainbow is a crocheted granny spiral, and the clouds are crocheted appliques.  The rain is crystal teardrop beads and glass seed beads strung onto beading wire.  The metal hoop is 14 across, and there are 12 colors of yarn in the spiral.



The clouds were crocheted from Buttercream Luxe, in white, and the rainbow from a mix of Caron Simply Soft, Vanna's Choice, Lion Brand Heartland, Bernat Satin, Red Heart Soft Solids, and Red Heart Super Saver. The Granny Spiral pattern costs $1, and can be found HERE:  The Cloud Appliques pattern can be found HERE.







I hope everyone's spring is starting to look brighter after the long winter we've had.

I really love the way this looks like a raincloud and a rainbow at the same time!  It brings a cheerful note to rainy weather!  The colors and construction are very beautiful, and mesmerizing!

Now that is just gorgeous! The spiral rainbow and clouds are fabulous, but what I really like is the bead rainfall, which makes it super special in my eyes.  Awesome work!

Thank you friends!  I'm so happy to hear people like it.  I liked the pattern when I saw it (which is just the spiral, in 6 colors repeated twice each), but I was afraid the wrong colors & finishing would leave me with a 70's-cheesey-macrame-scratchy-yarn vibe, when I wanted fresh and cheerful.  I'm glad to know I hit the right note with it.  I also posted it in a Crochet Facebook group I belong to, and woke up to 600+ likes and a bunch of shares!

I have long appreciated the ideas behind a dream-catcher, but they just are not my decorating style and I have yet to find a riff on them that is even close to my aesthetic. This seems to have the components w/o adhering to usual vibe and it's really tickling me!

I love how you didn't just use the "standard" rainbow colors in this! The rainbow represents the full spectrum of visible light, which is way more than 7 colors, so you've made the science geek in me very happy. And, the crystal raindrops are the perfect addition. I really love everything about this!
