THIS ONE IS MINE!!!

It is Friday and I am happy that I have completed one project: my Crochet bottle cover.

The post I wrote on crochet gift covers had a nice response.  Several ladies mentioned that they liked the lace one, which is my favorite one too, so that design is coming up…

For this one I used 100% acrylic yarn I received in a giveaway last year, it is really soft and it has a nice mix of colors.

 

The stitch pattern I used is the shell made of  3 DC – 1 ch – 3 DC , repeat, but I added a single chain to each side of the shell for several rows because it was too tight, then I eliminated the chain, on one row I added 1 DC between the shells, the bottom is made of all single crochet.  

You can use several different stitches and techniques, I always change-up when I get bored with one pattern.

I didn’t like how the ribbon blended into the body so I want to make the ribbon of a contrasting color so that it can shine 🙂

I need to make a lace one with a light weight yarn. The one I just finished has a nice feel to it since it is a soft medium acrylic.

I don’t own a nice camera but you can see the details. 

This is a long weekend for us here in the USA, what are you going to be working on? as for me I am going to add rows to RR and Big Lil Pet and take it easy.

Have a great and fantastic weekend ..See You Soon… P.S here’s the yarn..

  1. These are a great ideas, Daniella Joe. I love how your version of the wine gift covers turned out. My sister would love the colors. She loves purple in all shades and she is a wine rep. in New Jersey.

    By the way, I came across your crocheted boots from last September (6th, to be exact), and they are beautiful! I like the tall boots with all the colorful flowers going up the body of the boot.

    Have a joyous day doing what you love,
    Marianne

  8. I’ve made “coolzies” for cans and bottles also, they come in handy. Mine aren’t to fancy tho. I just don’t like the cold condensation touching me, that’s the only reason I’ve made some.
