Technically, it’s a centerpiece for a table! lol. but, since this is my first foray, let’s call it a table cloth!
The design is American Weekly Design 3154. Many thanks to The Celtic Vintage Crochet group on Yahoo
It’s done in Mercerized cotton with size 20 thread and it’s approximately 22 x 32 inches.
Ma decided to use it! so it’s gracing her table for now, as shown in the first picture.
I think everyone starts crocheting with a granny square. I started with trying to find as many patterns I could and making them with all the colours of wool i could find.
I am done with it, and just in time too, to gift it to my nephew for his first-rice ceremony.
He loved the colours!!! he couldn’t stop chewing on it!
I did it!!
Took me a while longer than i thought it would, but… YAY!!
It looks so gorgeous up close!!
Soooo.. what’s the verdict?
Design 191 from Vintage Sheet Patterns
It came out to be 28″ in diameter!! my biggest work till date!!
come on!! Isn’t is gorgeous?
Please please please tell me it is!!
Tested my patience, this one! lol
I was looking for a pattern for a shrug, when I came across this one.
Till date, i never tried to make wearables (ones that need actual measurements, to be precise), therefore, the gauge was a little tough for me to follow. Mainly because i didn’t have access to the mentioned yarn, and had to improvise. BUT, after a considerable amount of do-overs, here it is!!
A testament to my ability to extemporise! :p
And… miracle of miracles, it FITS!!!!
The whole thing.
Here’s a close up of the border.
My rendition of a free pattern from Caron international.
I had to use cotton yarn (given how long and cold our winters are!!), and decided to make it a little colourful. So it’s not totally as per the directions. But hey, an artist has the rights to her own rendition, right?
Galaxy Cluster Doily
This is a wonderful written pattern By Susan Palmer.
I was honoured to be one of the test crocheters! and hence this finished piece. Susan was gracious enough to use my picture in the pattern. Also, the best part about her work is that this pattern is a gift from her. It’s free on Ravelry.
Here’s hoping i find a customer for this so i can make another one. This was so much fun to make! Cheers!
Just got done with this one.
Got the pattern from here. Since i wanted an oval doily, i just added two motifs, is all.
Love how it turned out.
