Perfect gifts: crochet painting

Hi everyone,

I want to show you how to make a crochet ‘painting’ within a couple hours of work. Use it to show the world your love of crochet, to commemorate a special occasion, or to create a very personal gift!

What you’ll need:
-some scrap yarn in different colors
– an IKEA Ribba frame
– double-sided adhesive tape
– a 9’/19.75′ paper square in the color of your choice

How to create your own painting:Here comes the fun part: this is all up to you? What do you want to create? Try to stick to simple shapes. In this piece, I almost exclusively used little round pieces which are very easy to make. For a little reminder how to create a flat circle.

Round 1: Work 6 sc in a magic circle
Round 2: Work 2 sc in each sc of round 1
Round 3: Work 2 sc in every second sc of round 2. Sc in the other sc of round 2
Round 3: Work 2 sc in every third sc of round 3. Sc in the other sc of round 3

The possibilities are endless! Stick your crochet to the paper with the double sided tape (for the little strings I cut the tape up in tiny lines) and insert into the frame. You could even insert something like confetti when you’ve inserted the bottom half, to create an extra special effect.

That’s it! It is that easy. I would advise you to just play around a little with different shapes, and if you face any problems creating a specific shape, let me know!
