I believe I’ve mentioned before that I started working at a grain elevator for harvest. This has a huge impact on the types of crafting I’m doing now since I can’t play in my craft room for hours on end. It forces me to have a different perspective, as evidence in these projects. I’ve been a crocheter off and on for the better part of my life. My skills grow rusty through the warm summer months only to get use again when it’s cold out. Yes, I am a seasonal crocheter.
The first project here is a crochet sampler spider web. Here’s what I did:
-The corner web was formed by joining three different strips of crochet lace together with a couple of single crochet strips.
-I joined them at the corner with a simple slip stitch.
-Then I crocheted lengths using single crochet stitch and draping it between each long length creating a web. They are joined at the back and pass through each lace strip.
-I used Stiffy to made the web firm for easier hanging.
The next crochet project is a simple spider web doily. Here’s how:
-I started by crocheting five sigle crochet stitches and joined the ends together with slip stitch to make a loop.
- I made two slip stitches around the loop (so it floats and can be moved) then crocheted a two rows of single crochet for one line of the web. Do this five times until you have the entire loop covered.
-Starting a few stitches from the loop on one of the lines, single crochet a length that reaches the next line. Join in back using a single crochet and continue around the lines until the entire web is formed.
-Finish with a slip stitch.
