Pensive (Study on Black)
A lil Conversation
Sunday, November 1, 2009
I have fallen hard for crochet. The idea of crochet earrings was too good of an idea to pass up so I spent some time making these. I used copper colored Lydia's crochet thread #10. I am toying with the idea of a necklace too.
I am still a newbie to crochet. So far I've been enjoying it immensely.
These are the earrings. I am going to make these in red too.
This is the bracelet. I followed a pattern provided by the uber-talented Creative Yarn.
Now I did change the pattern a little bit to fit my own preferences. I did the first one as her pattern described and didn't like all of the petals so I shortened it to six petals which is the design I used for the earrings too. I used the eight petal one with the bracelet, then a six petal one, and then a five petal one. It kind of decreases as it goes. I sewed those together and made small attached pieces that I sewed to the flower and added the button for a clasp.
I love the texture.
Thanks for looking!
