Tatted beads


I don't quite know what happened a few days ago but I clicked on a link which took me here

Having found the big beads the other day I decided that this was going to be my next crochet project but with the beads that I blogged the other day in the middle and probably a lot smaller. Only trouble was I was thinking in a 'lazy' mode and decided that it was too much trouble to go and find a crochet hook for a size 20 thread which I'd got lurking in a container nearby.

Having gone through all this thought about the crochet balls I then decided 'why not tat them'? Where to find a pattern was the next problem as I'd got 3 sizes of beads to cover. No idea so I sent an email to BC3 who was 'up for the challenge'!!!

Not happy with the blue one but the variegated rainbow one worked well.  Off to sort out the stitch count (or whatever) for the other sizes.

    2. Do you really mean that big??? 16cm (3 inches), 14 - 2.5 inches, 10cm - 2 inches??? That's not big... it's HUGE!!! How do you manage to lose them that big??? VBG They sound more like old fashioned mothballs!!! ROFL

    1. Well, sort of, wickedcrochetlady!!!! I've made notes on them but need to get my 'act together' and do drawings and make it a 'real' pattern. I will do it, though although you're welcome to my rather rough notes!!!
