How-To: Crocheted Rainbow Shoelaces

Craft & Design Yarncraft


Apparently, wearing rainbow shoelaces in support of soccer (ahem, football) anti-homophobia efforts in the UK is a Thing, and I think that’s pretty awesome! Show your support—or just sport some fantastic fancy shoelaces—with this fun crocheted rainbow shoelaces tutorial that La from messyla shared on Mollie Makes!

Whip up a pair of crochet rainbow shoe laces and show your support for the Rainbow Laces campaign – challenging homophobia in football.

The movement (backed by the charity Stonewall, Paddy Power, Metro and the Premier League) kicks off this weekend as footballers across England sport rainbow-coloured laces as part of their second annual anti-homophobia campaign.
