adjusted: doily vase cover


remember this vase cover? 
vase cover made of 3 colors mercerized cotton

vase cover made of 3 colors mercerized cotton


i was not very happy with the result, too much structure i think while i like smoother
surfaces more and so i changed it.

now it looks like this. 

doily vase cover

doily vase cover – like a gigantic glass with large balls italian ice cream

only the doily part i left unchanged, then i crocheted two rows in yellow, first row: alternating 3dctog
and 5 dc, second row: 3dctog and 3 dc and then – back to the gray shade – only double crochets.
to finish it neatly, i made a border of 1 row 2hdctog and 2 rows slip stitches. 

with the adjustments the cover is more to my liking… but in the time that i crocheted
the cover, i should have done my administration…


i wish you a great week!

  1. looking at your projects really makes me want to learn how to crochet. thanks for the inspiration

  2. Much, much better. Sometimes it takes courage to unravel something that is finished, but it is absolutely worth the effort (and the pain of destroying…).

  3. This is better! Have a nice weekend. Regula

  4. very pretty! Love the colour combo 🙂

  5. I also really like both – though I love that there is more glass to see with the second one – it is amazing, how different they both look! Thank you so much for your kind words ❤❤❤ Anette

  8. Beautiful!
    It is a unity now. The transition from the doily part to the upper part is smooth.
    I find the yellow band intriguing.
