Long time no see, but I have news for you:)

Tonight I finished this beauty:

I used a diagram found on Pinterest, but I modified first rounds.

I started with 90 chains and a 5(H/8) mm hook for size M/L. For smaller/bigger size change the hook and/or change the number of beginning chains (80 for S/M, 120 for XXL and so on).

Work in circle:

Round 1: 1 dc crochet in each chain around, close ring.

Round 2:  ch 3, *cross stitch, ch 1 (to increase)* in each st, and repeat, close circle.

Round 3: ch 3 (counts as a dc), 1 dc in each st around.

Split your work in 4 equal parts.

For the front:

Chain 4, sc in 3rd st, repeat 9 times.

Row 1: ch 3 (doesn’t count as dc), 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc around first ch 4, ch 3, 11 dc around 3rd ch 4 from previous row, ch 3, 2 dc, ch2, 2dc around 5th ch 4, ch 3, 11 dc around 7th ch4, ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc around 9th ch4.

Row 2: ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 2dc in first ch 2 from previous round, *ch 3, 1 dc, ch 1 in each next 11 dc, ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in next ch 2*, repeat * * one more time.

And now you can follow the diagram.

I’ll be back with some new dresses, shortly I hope, because I have few days off and I can craft:D. Maybe some jewelry too…

 

Crochet & beading

Some new jewelry in my shop and a new halter top in some baby yarn.

Let’s start with the jewelry.

I exercised herringbone stitch with different size beads, and the result is this bracelet:

The main color beads have some metallic irisations, but they are glass beads.

a little bit too much photoshop here I’m afraid.

And an ocean theme freeform bracelet with some pink quartz chips and sea shells:

and triple spiral necklace:
