Rainbow Circle Granny Square

Do you like colourful granny squares? When it comes to colours, the sky is the limit. How to find the right combination? When you look at your skeins separately, at first, you might not see their full potential. It might even happen that the colour you loved earlier is not what you pictured once you use it in your project. So the best idea is to dry different colour combinations until you find the perfect match.  As I love playing with colours myself, this time, I decided to introduce a bit of rainbow into my new granny square.
