about crochet

spiky points

someone had two questions for me:

1. you always work with cotton or acrylic, why not with wool?

i am allergic to many things and wool is one of them unfortunately.

2. i think the pointy bunting is very nice, do you have a pattern for points that are more spiky?

sure, look at the picture. i’ve based the pattern on an insert on the back of a crochet dress (sorry, no picture of the dress, i lost it).

spiky points - elisabeth andrée
  • coral acrylic yarn, hook size 4 mm 
  • gray acrylic yarn, hook size 2.5 mm 
stitches (american english):
  • ch = chain
  • ss = slip stitch
  • tr = treble

at the beginning of a row you have to replace a stitch by a number of chains, for example 4 ch for a treble. i’m used to crochet 1 ch less, in this case 3 instead of 4 ch.

how to 

1. ch 6, 1 tr in 4th ch from hook, 3 ch, turn (=2 tr)
2. 1 tr in top of turning ch, 3 ch, turn
3. same as row 2
4. same as row 2
5. 1 tr in last tr of previous row, 2 tr in next st, 3 ch, turn (=4 tr)
6. 1 tr in next st and in the next 2 st, 3 ch turn
7,8. same as row 6
9. 2 tr in next 2 st, 1 tr in next st, 3 ch, turn (=6 tr)
10. 1 tr in next st and in the next 4 st, 3 ch, turn
11,12. same as row 10, but at the end of row 12 make more chains if you wish.

for attaching the points together see how to make a pointy bunting:

tomorrow will be my last post about bunting for a while. next week a very different project for you.
