crocheted rug

 

Now you can see that is huge!:) 5 ft x 7 ft!

Finally finished. It needs to be washed and blocked and maybe some eco stiffener.

5 days, (evenings:D and nights), 1500 yds of yarn x 3 strands, this means 1,5 kilos, more or less tails, but looks great to me. And it’s huge 200 + cm x 140+, longer and larger than myson couch:))  I took the pictures from an armchair. Now I can sleep:D, it’s 4 am here.

But I have to add some hashtags first…

WIP and some bracelets

It’s just a gallery this time. We have issues with power and Internet connection, because it’s raining (again), of course.blue pearls bracelet green bracelet red bracelet with flower tear drop earrings peach bracelet 2014-04-21 18.30.29-11 2014-04-21 18.30.29-28 2014-04-21 18.38.39-2 2014-04-22 12.30.50-3 crocheted rug 2014-04-22 13.29.57-3 2014-04-22 13.29.57-4 crocheted rug 2014-04-24 19.51.12-4 blue bracelet 0 blue bracelet1 blue bracelet02 peach bracelet

I checked the rug pattern, and I started a huge one. Already has 170 cm x100 cm. I need to make another 5-7 rounds to reach 210 x 150 ( 7ft x 5 ft), and to fill the gaps with some cute triangles or flowers. It is a banana or butter white in 3 strands, Red Heart Detroit 2 strands + Alize Cotton Gold 1 strand. I have to finish it this weekend.

The blue #bracelets and the peach one are RAW, and the red and the green one are stretch bangles.

And almost forgot the flowers for my birthday:

That’s it for today, more next time, in a sunny day maybe…I hope you like it…

What about some jewelry?

Too tired to crochet this weekend, so I beaded:

2 nice #bracelets:

one on blue:2014-04-14 15.55.06-1 2014-04-14 15.58.24-1 2014-04-14 15.58.24-4 2014-04-14 15.59.33-3

I used a pandahall tutorial, found on pinterest. They have a lot of cute beading tutorials on their learning center:

http://lc.pandahall.com/

or on pinterest, their  tutorial: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/31384528626329288/

I added 3 seed beads between those crystals.

And a green bracelet.

It is a bangle and it has a name: Shehrezade. It was a photo tutorial for this too on pandahall, but I don’t find it right now, instead I used this:

Sherezada

but not 2 sizes perles, just one. It is a RAW base with seed beads betwwen middle perles.

And a crocheted collar:

inspired  by a border, which I mixed it with my rug edging. This time with picots between clusters. This one needs to be blocked.

I didn’t crochet, but I bought yarn, crochet thread:)

I can’t wait to use it!

And because it’s raining, some pictures I took in a sunny day last week, in a park:

Have a nice and easy week!

 

 

 

 

 

Another crocheted rug:) revised

Same color, or almost, but different pattern, my own again. This time I started with a 8 petals flower in the middle:

rug 2 0 rug 2 det rug 2 et 1 rug 2

So, which one looks better?:D

It is almost same size, 80 cm diameter (33 inches).

I used 2 strands 50% cotton, 50% acrylic yarn and a 9 mm hook ( which is M, I think, I will check or you can check on google…)

Anyway, you can use any yarn and any hook you have, the result will be a different size  rug:D

My notes:

1. work on a plane surface, to be sure it stays flat. If you work too tight, add a chain or two to a group, to keep your work flat, or use a bigger size hook for the rounds with chains. I already added at revision some chains here and there and tripled check, so you can work as tight as you want to:)

US terms:

Chain 6, form a ring.

Round 1: ch 3 (counts as dc), 15 dc in ring, join with sl st in 3rd ch from the beg ch 3.

R2: ch 5 (dc+ch1), *dc in next st, ch 2*; repeat *_* 15 times, join with sl st in 3rd ch from the beg ch 4 (16 dc).

R 17: go with sc in second ch from previous round ch 3, *ch 3, sc in next ch 3 space, 7 dc in next ch 3 space, sc in next ch 3 space, ch 3, sc in next ch 3 space*; repeat *_* around ( you have 2x ch 3 between 2 fans); again in the end it might remain just 1 ch 3 group, you will join in sc then.

Crocheted rug

notes

These are my notes, to the one who knows what she said… and will be available in few hours.

I finally made one! With my own pattern, that I will list it in few hours. I have to make it nice, with pictures:D

YES, finished the pattern in US terms, with enough pictures I think, for all

https://www.etsy.com/listing/185214554/pdf-pattern-crocheted-rug-instant

 

and taddam:

crochet rug 00 crochet rug det big crochet rug det crochet rug

What do you think? It is 83 cm diameter, which means 33 inches? Or something like this. I have to convert it. But I am very proud of it.

And the shrug is almost done. I have to join sleeves and cut tails 😦 Tomorrow, I think:)

So, I used my own pattern, and I wrote it this time, now I have to put it in a word document with pictures, maybe a photo tutorial in 2 colors for the middle part, and make it pdf, hm, see you in 5-6 hours:)) At least.

Made it:) #pattern here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/185214554/pdf-pattern-crocheted-rug-instant?ref=shop_home_active_11

OK, made it in UK terms too.

Good night! Sleep well!

 

Lace crochet and tatting (frivolite)

Today it was a Mandala CAL, and I did it! Almost:D I didn’t like last 2 rows so I improvised. And I used cotton… for embroidery and a steel hook,  and I made a pendant:
