For this pattern you will need:

worsted weight yarn

size G crochet hook

scissors

yarn needle

Crochet Flower 2:  

Make a magic circle.

Ch 2, dc in magic circle, ch 2, sl st in magic circle.  (1 petal is made!) Repeat 5 more times so that you have 6 petals all together.  Cut working yarn and Pull magic circle closed.  Turn the flower over to the back side and tie the 2 yarn ends together.  Trim ends.

Using the next color, cut a piece about 8 inches long.  Thread the yarn through the needle.  Using the needle, push the yarn halfway through the center of the flower.  On the front of the flower, tie a knot in the yarn, close to the flower.  Tie another knot on top of the original knot.  Thread the yarn back down through the center of the flower so that just the double knot is on top.

You can use the yarn ends to tie the flower onto whatever you want to embellish or you can finish of the ends and trim them off.

Crochet Thanksgiving Napkin Rings

It’s almost time for Thanksgiving!!  One of my favorite things to do is to create a beautiful tablescape for the holidays.  So, this year I’ve come up with a few different ways I can include some crochet in my tablescape!  The first one is this fun and adorable Fall napkin ring holder and it’s just perfect for your Thanksgiving tablescape!  (Check out the matching Crochet Wine Glass Markers here!)

You can watch the video tutorial for this project here (or keep scrolling for pattern and instructions!):

For this pattern you will need: 

1/2 inch button

crochet leaves

size 10 crochet cotton in any color you like

size 6 crochet hook        

scissors

needle

pins or scraps of yarn to mark stitches (optional)

Instructions:

Create a slip knot on your hook.  Remove the slip knot from the hook.  Holding the first leaf upside down, start counting from the right side and find the 9th sc on the bottom of the leaf.  You can mark it with a pin or a piece of scrap yarn.

9th stitch

Do the same with the 10th sc.

10th sc

Marking the 9th and 10th stitch is optional.  You can just count out the stitches when you need to but I find it helpful to have them already marked!

Pick up your first leaf and push your hook into the 9th sc.  Pick up the slip knot that you made and draw it up through the sc.  (Remove the 9th stitch marker if you used one!)

Screen-Shot-2018-11-07-at-9.00.48-PM.png  Now the leaf is connected to your yarn.  Ch 60.  Place another marker in the 60th chain.

Chain 8.  Pick up the 2nd leaf.  Holding it sideways with the bottom of the leaf on the left.

2nd crochet  leaf

Slip stitch into the 10th sc and remove marker.  This attaches the 2nd leaf to the chain.

10th sc

Now sc into the 9th sc.  Chain 8.  Sc into the marked chain (the 60th chain) and remove marker.

60th ch

Hdc in the next chain, dc in the next 49 chains, hdc in the next chain, sc in the next 8 chains.  Slip stitch into the 10th sc of the bottom of the first leaf (if you marked the stitches in the beginning, this will be the last marked stitch.)

sc in crochet leaf

You can leave this yarn long and use it to sew the button on or you can finish off and use a new piece yarn.  I leave the yarn long and weave it back to the 4th sc to sew the button on.  Either way, find the 4th sc from your leaf and sew your button onto it.

Once your button is sewn on, finish off your ends.  Now you’re ready to enjoy your new crochet Thanksgiving napkin ring!
