Crochet Pot

A crochet pot which resulted from a basket!

I was planning to make a basket with a lace fringe but ended up making something different, but pleasantly different. This will need a little more refinement but now I have learnt something. I can go ahead and try some more.

 

 

 

 

 

How did I get to this crochet pot? A series of single crochet stitches across  the basket resulted in this cute little crochet pot.

 

 

 

 

If you find the instructions confusing, please excuse me. I am not used to writing crochet instructions. But I have tried to make it as clear as possible with the help of images.

Having completed the basket I attached a different yarn, lets call it yarn 2, to the last loop of the basket.

Using yarn 2 make single crochet (sc) stitches all around the fringe of the basket.

The second round of single crochet will also go all around the basket but this time on the side. The following image should give you an idea.

Now we come back to the weaving on the stitches all around the fringe. I have made four rounds of single crochet (sc). You can make more 1 or 2 more than that. It’s up to you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is how my pot was looking like after each round of single crochet. Our little pot is ready to store little gifts, jewellery, sweets, and the list can go on and on.

Lacy Bookmarks

When I pick up a book to read I also need a bookmark. And the bookmark rather not be just any piece of paper. Every good book deserves to get an equally good bookmark.

Okay, I am not bragging about my own bookmarks but I will not deny the fact that they are good indeed. 🙂

These bookmarks patterns were available as lace patterns but I saw some beautiful bookmarks in them. With a little bit of modification the laces were transformed into dainty bookmarks.

Here in India we also have Teachers’ Day coming up and these lacy bookmarks can be perfect gifts for teachers on this occasion.

 

Besides this, bookmarks can be gifts for any occasion. In fact, you don’t even need an occasion to gift someone a bookmark.
