Online Photo or Website
Name of website or photo Gone Fishin' Valance
What materials did you use? Crochet cotton, size 10, in 350 yd. (320 m) balls - dark green (4 balls); a size 8 (1.50 mm) steel crochet hook; and a 5/8" diameter curtain rod.
What are you most proud of? I love how the shading of the stitches create the trout and rock designs. I also was able to incorporate the rod pocket into the design so the curtain rod can be woven in and out at the top. I was able to work out a repeat in the rock pattern so the valance can be expanded, too!
What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a great project for the intermediate crocheter. In addition to detailed instructions, a graph is also provided for reference. The valance is worked from side to side. The finished size is 51" wide x 18-1/4" - 22" long. Instructions are included to increase the width in 10-1/4" increments. This pattern is available for $3.50 and is written in U.S. terms.
