Rainbow Bobble Snood By Melu Crochet

Back in January my son said to me ” This week feels like it’s gone on for a month!” I definitely knew what he meant! 🥱

I do think it’s a January thing and we can all feel a bit like that so when my lovely friends at @hobbii_yarn asked if I wanted to take part in their new ‘No Shades of Grey’ challenge I thought it would be a great idea to work with a bit of colour and perk us all up a bit!

I have been challenged to make something wearable that has at least four colours. I’ve chosen to use Hobbii Amigo XL because I really liked the choice of colours when I used the chunky version for my Chunky Chevron Blanket. These are the colours I have gone for:
Light Lilac (A48)
Light Peach (A46)
Primrose (A35)
Mint (A29)
Sky Blue (A16)
Wisteria (A58)
Light Pink (A57)
Titanium (A07)

My Rainbow Bobble Snood is now available in my Hobbii Pattern store where you can buy your yarn at the same time! In my Etsy shop, my LoveCrafts shop, and buy now on Ravelry

Maybe I will call this #RainbowMonday from now on?!

I have made a couple of swatches to help me get the feel of the yarn and how the colours will work together, I always find that they look so different when they are actually crocheted into a piece of work compared to when they are sat in their skeins.

I am really drawn towards pastel rainbow colours at the moment so these have been a pleasure to work with! I still chant the little rhyme that my friend Louisa @robinsandrainbows taught me to help me pick the colours;

“Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain”
(Red, Orange, York, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet)
Even though I have mixed up the order a bit!

Any guesses what I am making?!

Well I didn’t say WHO the wearable was for did I?!

I have designed this cute crochet Rainbow Bobble Snood pattern to keep your doggy warm and stylish during the colder weather. It uses diagonal half trebles, dc and bobble stitches in a simple repeating pattern. Tried and tested by Ernie, Skye and a few cat friends too!!

What a dapper model!

I don’t have a dog, but the small size fits my cat!

I used Lionbrand touch of alpaca for the main body, and some Scheepjes colour crafter for the bobbles.

The project was fun, took under an hour and was a good stash buster.

Well I didn’t think a cat would be happy to wear a snood but here we are! How adorable!
