It is Friday and I am happy that I have completed one project: my Crochet bottle cover.
The post I wrote on crochet gift covers had a nice response. Several ladies mentioned that they liked the lace one, which is my favorite one too, so that design is coming up…
For this one I used 100% acrylic yarn I received in a giveaway last year, it is really soft and it has a nice mix of colors.
The stitch pattern I used is the shell made of 3 DC – 1 ch – 3 DC , repeat, but I added a single chain to each side of the shell for several rows because it was too tight, then I eliminated the chain, on one row I added 1 DC between the shells, the bottom is made of all single crochet.
You can use several different stitches and techniques, I always change-up when I get bored with one pattern.
I didn’t like how the ribbon blended into the body so I want to make the ribbon of a contrasting color so that it can shine :-)
I need to make a lace one with a light weight yarn. The one I just finished has a nice feel to it since it is a soft medium acrylic.
I don’t own a nice camera but you can see the details.
This is a long weekend for us here in the USA, what are you going to be working on? as for me I am going to add rows to RR and Big Lil Pet and take it easy.
Have a great and fantastic weekend ..See You Soon… P.S here’s the yarn..
