Show Me Sunday - A Tutorial By Elisabetta!

Sunday, April 17, 2011

Good Sunday to all. You are quiet at home? Do you want to try something nice but also fast to enrich LO and cards? Then pull out the material and test now this idea really easy to make, even for people like me who has just started to crochet.


You need:
Round Punch
Little punch
Cotton crochet

Cut 2 circles of Bazzil and glue them together. Using a pencil, mark around all points distant at least 0,7-1 cm.

Drill holes with a punch. Take the thread to crochet and work through a single crochet on the first hole.

Repeat in the same hole another single crochet (2 sc in each hole). Make a chain (1 ch).

Go to the next hole and repeat: 2 sc and 1 ch, all around the circle.

Join with a slip stitch.

Begin the second round with 5 chain. Make a single crochet in the space between two holes (where you did the chain in the first round), (5 ch, 1 sc).

Then do 3 chain and a single crochet, and repeat all around (3ch, 1 sc). Join the last chain with the second point on the first chain (remember, the first chain was 5 point) with a slip stitch.

Close the work and secure the wire on the back with tape.

Now you can decore it as you want!

You can change the number of chains in the second round to obtain a flower!

Here I show you other works with this very versatile embellishment.

In this case the circle is larger, but the principle is the same.

And here I even trimmed a portion of the patterned.

Now do a test immediately, unleash the imagination and have fun!
