A simple file of dc and tr!
Now, let's start....
This yarn I that I will be using is local 3 ply acrylic yarn (locally referred to as Baguio yarn here in our country) together with a 3.5 cochet hook.
Simply Black Crochet Wrap
special abbreviations used:
st - stich
ch - chain
dc - double crochet
sl st - slip stitch
tr - trebble crochet (yarn over 2 times, insert your hook to the indicated stitch, pull up a loop and pull through 2 loops 3 times)
Make a slip knot, then chain multiples of 6 + 4 for (turning point)....again, I advise you guys to use stitch markers for every 50 ch or 100 ch you make to make final counting much easier. This would be the length of your wrap so keep chaining till you have your desired length.
row 1 dc on the 4th ch from the hook (counts as 1 dc) work dc on every ch till you reach the very first chain. turn your work.
row 2 chain 5 (counts as 1 tr plus 1 ch) skip 1 st, *tr on the next st, ch 1, skip 1 st, tr on the next, ch 1, skip 1 st* repeat * till end of row. you must end up with a tr. Turn your work
row 3 Chain 3 (counts as 1 dc) * dc on the ch 1 space, dc on the next*. repeat* till end of row ending up with dc on the 5th chain on the beginning ch 5 and 1 dc on the 4th chain. turn your work.
row 4 reapeat row 2
row 5 repeat row 3
Just keep repeating row 2 and row 3 till you get your desired width. Be sure to end up with row 3 ( the dc row) and for those who are a bit adventurous, you may change colors in every row to create a defferent look. You may also opt to add pretty boarders on both dc sides of your wrap. I left mine as it is.....that's why I''ve called it as Simply Black Wrap.
My! easy, isn't it? and here's my finish wrap.... :-) Could be worn in many ways....
around the shoulders
as a scarf...
and this one's my favorite
Now I wish I had some other belt with a contrasting color :-)
