Ring of Roses Suncatcher "Spring Fling"

Project Description

What was your source for this crocheting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Ring of Roses Sun Catcher Link to website or photo www.craftsy.com/pattern/crocheting/Home-Decor/Ring-of-Roses-Suncatcher/643 What are you most proud of? I love the 3 dimensional effect of the roses. I almost expect them to smell wonderful. hmmm...I may have to look for some wonderful rose scent to spray on them. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would encourage anyone who can crochet to try thread. It is really easier than yarn and I use a larger hook size (size 1 Boyle hook or size B Aluminium hook) to encourage others to try it.

What you will need

  • You will need Boye Steel Crochet hook size 1 (2.25mm)and size 10 crochet cotton
  • a background color
  • a large rose color
  • small rose color and a leaf color. 8 Hoop Ring for dream catchers Optional items: Lead Crystal drop 24 gauge beading wire 2 head pins 2 red heart-shaped beads (or choice of bead color and shapes)

Q&A with LoisLeigh

KYLinny asked:
What a gorgeous idea! I have never crocheted with thread before, but your project has inspired me --- along with your encouragement. I can't wait to try it. Thank you so very much for sharing it, Lois. Bless you, Linny
LoisLeigh answered:
Thank you, Linny. I find thread easier to hide ends and the hook never picks up part of the thread.
MizPat asked:
My mom had a napkin holder done like this. Both sides had the Irish crochet roses in varigated pinks, the spring-green leaves and the pure white background to fill the circle. The circls laced onto the napkin holder with ribbon. I used to love watching her starch and stretch the circles before lacing them onto the napkin holder. Thanks for the memory!
LoisLeigh answered:
I love Irish Crochet Roses. There is so much one can do with them.
