Sending Out Hope with Rainbow and Unicorn - FREE Crochet Pattern

Ca Va Bien Aller! Things will Get Better! As Canadians are still currently under quarantine during the Corona Pandemic, we are seeing the society putting out rainbows for our front line essential workers in hope that it will remind them that things will get better! So, with this FREE Crochet pattern, I am happy to bring everyone some hope and optimism.

There are many uses for this rainbow; you can give it to them in a card form; a pocket rainbow reminder; a window decal; or simply as an applique patch on clothing. So let's get started and make one to give to your friends and family to remind them that there is always a rainbow after a storm.


If you wish to support me - you can buy one from my shop -


I would also like to introduce you to, Hope, our magical rainbow unicorn. Make your own cuddly unicorn for someone special with this CROCHET PATTERN.
