Dream Catcher

dreamcatcher

My latest project was the dream catcher you see in the picture above. This is an xl size dreamcatcher and is cross cut 70cm, that’s about 27″

To make this dream catcher I used dmc cotton thickness size 12 and a crochet hook size 1,75mm US size 6. You can use any kind of yarn, which you can crochet with a US 6 crochet hook

The crochet chart I used is in the picture below.

The stitches are used in this pattern are in US terms:

  • chainstitch
  • slip stich (at the end of each row)
  • single crochet
  • double crochet

To make this pattern you must be able to read crochet charts, but it isn’t as difficult as it seams. Make sure you count the stitches well, especially in the beginning. If you make a mistake in counting at the beginning this will affect the entire pattern.

When you have a smaller hoop, you can finish your pattern before the end.

Keep in mind that the doily will be stretched in the hoop.

After finishing your doily attach it to the hoop and finish your work, with strings of lace, feathers, ribbons or what ever you’ll like. Just make it beautiful

You can also use other doily’s. On Pinterest you’ll find a lot of crochet doily charts also in smaller size for smaller sizes hoops

Have fun making your own beautiful dream catcher!

Easter DIY, crochet Easter eggs

DSC_0586

I can’t wait till it’s Spring and for me Spring starts when it’s Easter.

With this DIY you have to start early, because if you would like a lot of Easter eggs, it will take a while, because it’s a lot of work, but don’t they look beautifull!

First you take an egg, don’t boil it! Wash the egg, you know where it comes from:)

Make a hole on the top and bottom of the egg

Then you blow as hard as you can on the top hole form the egg

It’s not always that easy and try to hold the eggs with all ten fingers, to prevent them from breaking, again you have rinse the egg when it’s empty.

Then you follow this pattern for the egg shown in the picture above

Here the signs are explained, the pattern is made in two parts and you attach the second part to the first part in the last row where you see the arrows with a single crochet. Put your egg inside before closing and when it’s still wide enough.

When your egg is finished you take a piece off ribbon from about 15 inch long and make a knot

Take a very thin crochet needle or long needle and put it through the egg.

Than work the ribbon first through the bottom and then through the top of the egg.

Put some branches which start to sprout in a vase and hang your eggs in it.
