a Kind of Rainbow

Hélène has toyed with the idea of a crochet project using the 75 naturally dyed colours of the main range for quite a while now. And voila her solution: a big scarf / stole that simply uses the colours one after the other in a chevron stitch that makes the colours vibrate. Hélène describes it as an easy pattern where the emphasis while crocheting is to enjoy the play of the 75 colours.
