I am absolutely hooked on Little Gems Craft Shop‘s Instagram feed. Gemma is the undisputed Queen of Rainbows and her feed is PACKED full of beautiful bright makes that are guaranteed to add some sunshine into your life.
I’m welcoming Gemma to my blog today to share this FAB stash-busting pattern. Not only is it the perfect Spring make, it has all of my favourite things in one project. Pastel colours? tick. Squishy soft yarn? tick. Rainbows? tick. So, what are you waiting for?

Grab those rainbow-toned leftovers and let’s get making!
MATERIALS & TOOLS
Super chunky thick wool
Yarn: I used StyleCraft Special DK in the following colours should you want to use the same: Aspen 1422, Bright Green 1259, Lemon 1020, Candyfloss 1130, Parma Violet 1724, Apricot 1026
The Little Rainbow Cloud Hanging can be made to any size.
The pictured cloud is 17cm width and 10cm in length and my tassels are 30cm long.
To straighten your tassels, you can either use a steamer or hair straighteners. However, use them very lightly and be careful not to burn the yarn.
Don’t worry about being neat with the cloud, as long as the mesh is covered
You can attach a piece of felt to the back to make it look neat, but it isn’t necessary
LITTLE RAINBOW CLOUD HANGING PATTERN
Cut your mesh into a rectangle to the size you would like (mine was 12 x 8 cm), and grab your super chunky wool in white and hook the wool through the holes using your crochet hook. Make sure you leave 2 rows at the bottom of the cloud for your tassels.
Once you are happy with the shape of your cloud, grab you coloured yarn (rainbow stripes) and cut to your desired length, (I cut my tassels to 60cm in length so 30cm once folded). Fold in half and loop through the bottom of your cloud.
Draw and cut three stars out of your glitter card/fabric and glue to your cloud.
Straighten your tassels (optional!) and trim so they are super straight at the bottom.
Tie a little loop at the back of your cloud to hang!
And, you’re all done! You now have your own Little Rainbow Cloud Hanging!

Hello, this is adorable! I can’t wait to start making mine ☺️ just a quick question, how many lengths of yarn did you cut for each of the tassel colours?
