i’m doing a large filet crochet project with the diamond-shaped motifs. it is a very enjoyable project to work on, but the colors look weird on the photo, so i post about this another time.
the garlands that you could see last week too… i just put the project on hold, but the intention is to make a curtain to hang in a doorway.
how to make
if you like to adopt the idea, i have no pattern, but i can tell you roughly how i’m going to make that curtain.
1. define what the length of the garlands will be
2. crochet the garlands
- or my tutorial for the spring garland see here
- but also the first row of a stitch pattern, such as a ripple stitch or a bobble stitch pattern
- or: make a number of chains, then create 3, 5, 7 or more picots, make a number of chains, etc.
and there is so much more to consider.
measuring the width of the door opening (window), and determine the division of garlands on the number of cm. begin with a number of chains and attach the garlands one by one until you reach the end of the width. crochet than a number of rows of single crochets or double crochets until you are satisfied with the size. you can also make more rows so you can fold it to create a tunnel suitable for a curtain rod.
the bottom side
you can weave in the ends and/or attach beads or shells onto the garlands.
some options for mounting methods:
- to a – thin – curtain rod or wire, rope, a bamboo stick, attach with those little pegs on rings.
- you can also choose to not crochet a top piece, but to hang the garlands separately with those little pegs with rings onto a bamboo stick (garden center).
