Hello Everyone, I love to crochet with thread and you can make such dainty and lacy things with thread. They do have different size of thread that you can use to crochet with. What is amazing is that the smaller the number of the thread the bigger the strand of thread it is. You would think it would be the other way around for example a size 20 thread is thinner than a size 3 fashion thread. I use the classic size 10 the most when I work with thread.
I have come to find out that thread is versatile. You can make so many things with the thread. You can make anything from clothing to jewelry and even art.
Below are some of the items that I have created with thread.
Let me know if you have created anything with thread and if you any favorite patterns.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a Fabulous Evening!
It is always amazing to me how many projects I have going at once. I sometimes think why can’t I just finish one before I start another one! I have come to the realization that it is never going to happen!! I guess I will never know why it works that way. I get into a project and then my mind starts to wander or maybe I just start to daydream about what else to I would like to make. 🙂 I do eventually finish the projects I do start, well okay if I am going to be honest I do have some that have been put away for years. Hmmm guess I should look into those one of these days!! Below I have a Granny Square Afghan that I started and am still working on.
Here I have the Granny Squares themselves made without sewing them together. I have a total of 5 squares made for the Afghan.
Here I attached the Granny Squares together diagonally. I then proceeded to work on one side of the Granny Squares with a Ripple or Chevron pattern. Here is the link that shows you pictures of how to attach the squares together and proceed with the zigzag pattern. Tutorial Manta Hueco Zig Zag | Buscando Comienzos. You will have to use a translator for English. Below is just another view of what I have done so far.
While working on this Afghan I started thinking I want to make something for myself. Wait for it….. of course I started another project! lol
This is going to be a top to wear over a tank. In the first picture I was using only 1 strand of thread and a smaller hook. I of course changed my mind and started all over with 2 strands of thread and a larger hook. It is of the same stitch, the Marielle Lace Stitch. You can find it here How to Crochet the Marielle Lace Stitch NewStitchaDay.com.
Here is the diagram I am working off of. As you can see it is basically a square with a neck. This is such a simple top to make. The front of the neck just goes down 2 inches and the back just 1 inch. The sides are just sewn up to where the armhole would be. There is not any shaping for the armholes. That makes this a very easy top to create. It is meant to be a crop top but you could always add to the length to make it what ever size you wanted. There are so many possibilities for this top. Make a tighter stitch, longer length, or a different width. Depends on what you want from the top, a tighter fit or looser like I wanted to layer over a tank top!
Oh by the way I am also in the process of finishing up on the Barbie dress. I have to wonder sometimes if I am the only one who has this many projects going at once! lol I sure hope not!!
Thanks for stopping by, Laura 🙂
