CHRISTMAS CROCHET ALONG: DAY 7

Today, we want to start winding down. Please complete each ball and decide what trimmings you want on your Christmas ball.

I have ribbons and I am crocheting small marble size balls with #10 thread, please follow this video for the visual tutorial.

Okay, today I want to talk briefly about yarns and threads, you may know much more about the subject.

You probably do not know but I love thread and thread crochet will give your work a very delicate elegant finish product.

The thread I use the most is 100% cotton, but I have used Bamboo and I love Bamboo, there are others.

Here are some I found on google: 

 

  

 

 

Okay so you get the idea 🙂 These need a fine hook, I usually end up with the hook that glides and grab the thread with ease. Always remember the bigger the hook the bigger your finish product will be and vice versa.

Yarn, is a joy to work with because your project grows very fast and it is soft usually, some acrylic defies this definition.

Here are some examples from google: 

Very good tutorial about the Art of Crochet. 

Let me stop here, I need to finish my Christmas balls too. Let us meet bright and early tomorrow morning, after a good breakfast….
