Free Pattern – Rainbow Flag Pencil Topper

Free Pattern Rainbow Flag Pencil Topper

We love rainbows, and if they’re crocheted ones then we love them just that little bit more! We’re joining in with the rainbow action with this cute free pattern to celebrate June, the official month of Pride. Whether you’re proudly flying your flag on parade or just want to brighten up your stationery, this little rainbow flag pencil topper will help you show your colours! It can be made in any 4ply cotton, but we’ve made ours in the fabulous Scheepjes Catona, which is available in cute tiny 10g balls. The loops are big enough to fit tightly onto a standard pencil – but you can always add more chains to make it fit bigger pens/pencils.

 

You will need:

2.5mm hook

Scheepjes Catona (100% cotton, 10g/25m), 1 ball of each:

Yarn A Ultra Violet (282)

Yarn B Electric Blue (201)

Yarn C Emerald Green (515)
