Description

This is a downloadable set of six small jewelry patterns. The emphasis is on seeing (and wearing!) a spectrum of yarn colors. Although it was designed for DesigningVashti.com Lotus yarn, many other yarns and color combinations can be used.

This rainbow-inspired crochet project has several little patterns to choose from: four different “chip” shapes, and two simple ways to wear them as jewelry charms.

The idea for this set came about as a way to make the most of short colorful yarn pieces. I knew I wanted to be able to send out “snips” of every color of my new Lotus yarn. No online photos of yarn can capture what it’s like to hold it in your hands! Why not be able to make something with them that would be easy to use, organize neatly, and wear?

Skill Level

Projects Range from Easy to Intermediate.

UK and Australian equivalents for American measurements, yarn weights, and stitch terms are in brackets { }. This pattern set uses few abbreviations.

After using this pattern, you will know (if you didn’t already):

  • How to “slip” a loop for a smooth join that uses less yarn than a slip stitch does.
  • How to crochet a lean picot that uses very little yarn to add definition to corners.
  • How to identify the “bump” strand of each chain stitch.

Materials

  • Crochet Hook: Sizes D/US3 {3.25 mm} and E/US4 {3.50 mm} or size desired. Gauge is not important for this project. The next smaller size, C/US2 {3.00 mm or 2.75 mm} I was used for weaving in yarn ends that were too short for a yarn needle.
  • Yarn Shown: DesigningVashti.com Lotus (52% Cotton, 48% Rayon; 256yds/235m per 3.5oz/100g ball), approx. 36” {91.44 cm} per color chip, plus approx. 3 yd. {2.74 m} of Black Gleam for mounting.

Substituting a yarn: To use the crochet hook sizes above, choose a #2 Fine Weight yarn with a recommended crochet hook size range of US4/E/3.5mm to US6/G/4.0mm. These yarns may also be referred to as Sport or Heavy Sock {Light DK, 5-Ply}. If you substitute thinner or thicker yarns, use crochet hook sizes in ranges appropriate for the yarns.
