Recently finished crochet projects
Posted September 6, 2008on:
This is a wastebasket (for non-icky things) to go under my computer desk. It’s tapestry crochet, made by holding 3 strands of yarn together, but only letting two of them show at any given time, and varying which two to get the hearts pattern.
This began life as a sweater for Cinderella (now 5yo), designed to be the same size as a t-shirt that fits her perfectly. This was the first time I have made up a crochet pattern myself, so I’m not sure what happened, but it ended up being way, way too long. So I decided to add a ruffle and make it into a dress. But now the whole thing is heavy enough that the stiches at the top get pretty stretched out. So I guess she’ll be wearing it over something.
These are mesh bags made by holding two strands of crochet thread together. I’m pretty sure they were the same size at one time, so it’s weird that the pink one is now bigger. Maybe it’s because that one holds pool toys. Anyway, here’s the link for the pattern. About.com has all kinds of wonderful crochet patterns.
