A couple of weeks ago I designed a tutorial for lovecrochet.com that
was a little bit different to my usual makes.....
.... in that I think it has to be the smallest crochet I have done so far !
Using DMC's Petra Perle No 3 thread and a 2mm hook I experimented making
teeny little crochet balls,
that once threaded together make perfect bright and colourful beads.
With a little bit of thin elastic, and some careful threading ....
... they were soon turned in to chunky Summer bracelets and necklaces.
For a little variation I added them in with some wooden beads ...
... and finished each
piece off with some co-ordinating velvet ribbon.
Being super quick to make, and with all the shades of the rainbow to choose from
they make perfect gifts ....
and one of mine was packed up straight away
and popped in the post to a lovely friend.
If you fancy giving them a go the full pattern can be found in the right hand
side bar on this page or by clicking here.
...... a little word of warning though before I go ......
