It is again that time of year where we are going to spend a lot of our time indoors. Colder temperatures are currently also arriving here in the South of France. It makes my hands itch ;-).
I just love to make it more cosy in my apartment. I like to adapt my home to my personal mood, even though my changes usually only last one season.
The other day I was searching the net and I am came accross this crochet pattern from Drops Design when it gave me the incentive to start this little project.
I have used the yarn I had at home which was 20% wool and 80% acrylic. It turned out exactly how I wanted it to be, a little bit more romantic due to the yarn. If I would have used cotton it would have been too cold for my taste.
I did not follow the pattern I found on Drops Design but I wanted to have a bit more 'open' work. Unfortunately I did not write down a pattern, but as the vase has a 20cm diameter I have started with 102ch and formed a ring with a slipstich. I kept track of the 102chains without decreasing or increasing. I just made sure that the crocheted tube was 3 to 4cm lower than the actual size of the vase.
It felt a bit tight when I wanted to place it over the vase but like this it will perfectly keep its shape!!
