I used this pattern but it is originally written in US terms so I have translated it to UK terms here.

Keep right side facing towards you throughout
1. Ch8, 3dc in second ch from hook, 1dc in next 5ch, 3dc in last st.
2. Working along opposite side of chain (the base), 1dc in next 5ch, slst to join to first st
3. Ch1, 1dc in same st, 5htr in next st, skip 1 st, 1dc, skip 1st, *5htr, 1dc* twice, skip 2sts, 8htr, skip 2sts, slst to join first st. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Pin clouds to the end of each rainbow and sew into place.
