So what have I been up to?Attic 24 as Lucy explains things so wonderfully with loads of pictures. She made these as Christmas decorations but I fancied trying them now so I chose 4 ice cream colours and have an idea about finding the perfect twiggy branch to bring inside and hang them on! I copied the entire tutorial, including the photos into Word and edited it as I needed- removing some photos to save on ink and reducing the size of others- then printed out all 14 pages of what remained!!! But I am so glad I did because, as a beginner, I could keep going back to the instructions to check things. I have stuck to the 4 colours but each decoration will be different. I plan to make 8 altogether- but so far have finished 3 and have 3 ready to make up.
Here are the finished ones hanging in my baby apple tree.
(A Mothers' Day present from earlier this year, which I don't think will bear any fruit this year- so here's it's moment of glory!)
I could start a circle before, but I now know how to:-
- join colours and carry on
- increase the stitches to make a flat circle
- make the long DC into the previous circle for the outer decorative ring
- crochet two pieces together
