Egyptian Shen Ornament C-077

Pattern Description:

I have always been fascinate with ancient Egypt and one year I came up with the idea to crochet some Egyptian Christmas ornaments. This cute little filet crochet shen hieroglyph is one of the results. I also hang them all over the house as conversation pieces. They are stiffened with sugar starch. The recipe is included in the instructions.

I do not just use them for Christmas. I also made a mobile and sometimes just hang them around the house for fun. I also have one hanging from the mirror in my car.

Be sure to check out those other crocheted Egyptian designs in my shop, as well as other original crochet, knit and needlepoint patterns.

All of the patterns which I sell are my own designs and are copyrighted. Painstaking attention has been paid to the patterns, to ensure that they are clear, accurate, and easy to understand and follow.
