Project Description

What are you most proud of? I was able to buy an old, traditional "Trachten-Schirm". The frame of the umbrella is very fine and about 50 years old, the handle is of brass. What advice would you give someone starting this project? let yourself be inspired by old photos and search for suitable crocheting patterns. Nothing is unthinkable!

What you will need

  • 100% merc. cotton yarn

Q&A with eprice1688

Sharon Bowman asked:
Where would you purchase the parasol handle?
eprice1688 answered:
Hi Sharon. Try the fleemarket to find an old fabric only damaged parasol, take it apart and stretch the new part over it, or check or I am furtunate to have found a umbrellar factory here in Switzerland that sells me custom made umbrellar frames and handles.
