Row 7: ch 2 and loosely dc around the entire rainbow (in the two bottom corners you will make dc- ch 1- dc). Weave in your ends.

I choose to iron my rainbow to flatten it out.  Using my iron and ironing board, I covered it with a piece of fabric (I used a cloth napkin) and ironed each side on the highest heat setting.

I didn't hold the iron down for long. I just pressed the iron down in the middle and pushed it outwards in each direction. I did this on each side. Tip: Let the crochet piece cool completely before moving it from your ironing board
