Hi my yarn loving friends, how are you?
What have you been making to keep you out of the sun and excuse you from the gardening? Need another excuse to make pretty things? Well……………… today is Friday and what better way to celebrate than with a new pair of shoes? Almost!
Meet Viola, she is a little bolder than her little sister Vi, but not quite as loud as her big sis Violet!
To make Viola, you will need:
3mm crochet hook, 4ply cotton yarn and two 2.5cm buttons, sewing needle and thread.
Finished measurement – 7cm diameter
Start hookin’ here….
Using 3mm hook and 4ply yarn, Ch12, join into a ring with a sl st into first ch
Round 1: Ch2, 23dc into ring, close with a sl st into top of beg ch2.
Round 2: Ch5, (counts as 1tr, 2ch) 1tr into next dc, ch1, (skip next 2dc, 1tr, ch2, 1tr, ch1 into next dc) seven times in total, close with a sl st into third ch of beg ch5.
Round 3: Ch3, 1tr, ch2, 2tr into the ch-2 space below, 1dc into ch-1 space below. (2tr, ch2, 2tr, ch1 into next ch-2 space below, 1dc into 1ch space below) repeat seven times in total, close with a sl st into third chain of beg ch3.
Fasten off, darn in ends and block if desired. Simply pop over the button to secure onto the shoe.
The pattern is written in UK crochet terms.
