 vase cover - elisabeth andrée

 

this cover is for a narrow tall vase but you can adjust the pattern the way you want.
used stitches (american english):
  • ch = chain
  • ss = slip stitch
  • dc = double crochet
  • half dc = half double crochet
  • st = stitch
first make a magic ring

1. 3 ch and then make 11 dc in ring, ss to 3 ch

2. 2 ch and 1 dc in first dc, 2 dc in the next 11 dc, ss to 2nd ch

3. ss to first space between two dc’ s of previous row (see photo), make 2 ch and 1 dc in first space, *1 ch and 2 dc between next groups*, repeat between  * and * to end of row, end with 1 ch and ss to 2nd ch

5. same as row 3 but now make groups of 4 dc’ s

if necessary keep increasing until desired size

6. 2 ch and then 1 half dc in every dc of previous row and 2 half dc in every ch space, ss to 2nd ch

7. keep crocheting rows of halve dc’ s until you reach the height you like (i did about 11 cm)

8. 3 ch (= first dc and 1 ch), sk 1 half dc, 1 dc in next st, *1 ch, sk 1 st, 1 dc in next half dc,*, repeat between * * till end, ss to 2nd ch

9. 3 ch (= first dc and 1 ch), sk 1 dc, 1 dc in next st, *1 ch, sk 1 st, 1 dc in dc*, repeat between * * till end, ss to 2nd ch

repeat row 9 until desired height (i did 8 rows = about 5 cm)

10. make 2 half dc’s in every dc of previous row, sk the ch spaces, start the row with 2 ch en end with ss in 2nd ch

11. next two rows are ss in every stitch – this creates an edge

  4. Hello SV,Thank you for stopping by and your kind words:)If you like to you can adjust the pattern. You can enlarge the bottom to crochet one or more additional rows and if you vase widen upwards you can crochet more chains. Here’s an example:  http://elisabethandree.posterous.com/birthday-presentsHope this helps?Have a nice day!
