How-to: woven circles trivet

How-to: woven circles trivet
I found the gold and pink crocheted trivet pictured below at the thrift store this weekend, and it was a total "I can make that" moment. The structure of the circles is made from plastic rings cut from one of those pieces that holds together a six-pack of soda. The hardest part will be in finding plastic rings that are actually circle. The sodas that were in my fridge (a Pepsi product) had "rings" that were more of an oval, almost D-like shape. Luckily I had a rounded version laying around, though I have no idea what kind of soda it came from. I am going to have to go to the 7-Eleven for research. What you need: Worsted weight cotton yarn in colors that you like. Round six-pack rings, trimmed apart into circles. Size H (5.0 mm) crochet hook Begin by attaching your yarn with a slip stitch to a ring. If 45 dc seem to be too many or too few to fill up your ring, you can adjust accordingly! Now lay them out like this with each ring overlapping the next: You're ready to make the center ring.

So continue to follow along as we explain what you’ll need to know before you make your very first project! The longest journey begins with the first step, and knowing the meaning and importance of gauge is your first step to crocheting a garment that comes out the correct size. Every pattern direction will have a recommended gauge, plus finished measurements. The gauge is how many stitches and rows you should get over a span of inches/centimeters (usually a 4"/10cm square) when you work in the specified pattern stitch, using the yarn and crochet hook size called for in the materials list.

tutorial conillet de pasqua Nibble nibble, hop hop Posted on Updated on If you are a regular follower you will immediately notice that these bunnies are very closely related to some particularly cute owls made recently. You see a distant aunt on their mother’s side fell in love with a completely unsuitable (if you are an owl) rabbit… the rest, so they say, is history. Rabbits, as you well know, breed like, well, rabbits and before we knew it there were not one, but four new members to the family.
