Rainbow Rays patterns

We plan to develop 'Rainbow Rays' radiating out from the Rainbow in this years (2021) Big Knit. Built up from a variety of repeating 1 & 2 coloured squares it should be a kaleidoscope of colour.  

Also crafty groups of people are getting together to yarn bomb their own neighbourhood in a kaleidoscope of rainbow colours. This resourse has been developed for the use of the Rainbow Rays groups.
