so a few days ago, I shared a couple crochet tutorials with you all. I know a few of you have given it a go and told me you found it really fun! Thank you, for taking the time to try it! I’m glad it worked out for you the way I had hoped it would!
Since the Single crochet it such a versatile stich its not hard to come by a pattern using it but I decided I would share a pattern that you could use to make something pretty with your new found skills! This little project will get you working on your Foundation Chains, Single Crochet stitches, slip stitches, single crochet increases, stitch counting and weaving in your ends! Reading the Pattern will also introduce abbreviations to you, something that you will find on every project you will ever do.
I make it sound like theres going to be a lot of stuff going on but I promise, I created this pattern especially so that it wouldn’t get overwhelming. I have also included a video tutorial to help you along the way!
4mm crochet hook
DK weight yarn*^
^DK is an abbreviation of DOUBLE KNIT(TING) weight yarn (check the label of your yarn)
The numbers in brackets at the end of the row represent the amount of stitches you should have when the row is complete. Example; seeing (10) at the end of your row instructions means your completed row will have 10 complete stitches in it. Your turning chain does not count as a stitch unless the pattern you are following tells you it does.
Okay, grab your hooks and lets start Crocheting!
ch – Chain
st(s) – Stitch(es)
sc – Single Crochet
sl st – Slip Stitch
For the triangles;
ch 2 (chain two)
Row 1 – sc into 2nd ch from hook, ch1, turn. (1)
(Single crochet into 2nd chain from the hook, chain 1, turn your work.(1))
Row 2 – 3sc into next st, ch1, turn. (3)
(3 single crochet into the next stich, chain one, turn your work (3))
Row 3 – sc into each st across, ch1, turn (3)
(single crochet into each stich across, chain one, turn your work (3))
Row 4 – 2sc in 1st st, sc in next st, 2sc in last st, ch1, turn (5)
(2 single crochet in the next 1st stitch, single crochet into the next stitch, 2 single crochet into the last stitch, chain one, turn your work. (5))
Row 5 – sc into each st across, ch1, turn, (5)
(single crochet into each stich across, chain one, turn your work, (5))
Row 6 – 2sc into 1st st, sc into next 3sts, 2sc into last st, ch 1, turn. (7)
(2 single crochet into the 1st stitch, single crochet into the next 3 stitches, 2 single crochet into the last stitch, chain one, turn.(7))
Row 7 – sc into each st across, ch1, turn, (7)
(single crochet in to each stitch across, chain one, turn your work. (7))
Row 8 – sc into each st across, ch1, turn (7)
(single crochet into each stitch across, chain one, turn your work (7))
Row 9 – sc into next 6 sts, 2 sc into last st –
(single crochet into next 6 stitches, 2 single crochet into the last stitch) – do not chain, instead, continue working sc down the side of the triangle to the point (where you started), 3 sc (3 single crochet) into the point and continue working sc up the side to the top, sl st (slip stitch) into the top row, tie off, weave in the ends.
This completes your triangle! Repeat another 7 times (or as many as you’d like) before moving onto the string.
For the string
Ch 10, holding your first triangle in line with the chain, sc into the 1st st of the triangle, sc into the next 8 sts, ch 12, attach new triangle, ch 12, repeat until you have attached all of your triangles, ch 15, sl st into 5th ch from hook, sc into each st across, ch 5, sl st into 1st st of the row, tie off, weave in ends.
(chain 10, holding your first triangle in line with the chain, single crochet into the 1st stitch of the triangle, single crochet into the next 8 stitches, chain 12,attach another triangle, repeat until you have attached all of your triangles, chain 15,(turn) slip stitch into the 5th chain from the hook, single crochet into each stitch across to the end of the row, chain 5, (turn) slip stitch into the first stitch of the row, tie off, weave in ends.) – I haven’t given any stitch totals for the string since people might have different amounts of triangles.
This completes your project! you are now the proud owner AND CREATOR of some ITTY BITTY BUNTING!*
