The last two days have been back to making Christmas gifts and baubles. These I finished today, so pretty in their soft turquoise colour.
Patterns are based loosely on baubles I found here and here. I embellished the top bauble with little white pearl beads that I sewed on once the bauble was complete. For the second bauble I crocheted two tiny snowflakes and sewed them on. I followed the first few rows of Annaboos House Star Ball (the first pattern link) because I liked the star shape to start off the bauble and then just winged it into a sort of lattice pattern to show off the silver bauble inside. These are both super patterns I must add. I made different lengths of chain st for the loops.
Details FYI ... the yarn is Stylecraft Special DK in Sherbet. I used a size 3.50mm hook for a good close texture. The baubles are of the plastic variety in silver, and I twisted the tops off (they were dodgy anyway) so that I could attach the loops to the actual crochet body of the bauble.
A delicate and pretty addition to my bauble collection!
As I type, the clouds have gathered and I can hear distant thunder. We are having one of the hottest early summers that I can remember with daily temperatures mostly up in the 30's C and very little rain .... so a prayer for a nice shower later would be so appreciated.
Thanks for reading, until next time,
