Our July program is tapestry crochet. Shawna Jones, our guild member will be teaching us to make vases and has the following supply list and directions.
If possible, bring your completed base with you, directions are included on this email.
Our hostesses for this month are: Sue Wilkey and Kathi Adams
If you would like to join in on the swap this month we will be exchanging 2 coasters.
Here are supplies for some tapestry crochet in July;
2 contrasting colors of worsted weight yarn. Something firmly spun and sturdy, acrylics like Red Heart are a good choice to start with.
An E or F hook.
With one color make either base to work from for our vases;
Round 1: In magic loop, work 6 sc, do not join. Mark first stitch if you would like to keep track of rounds (6 sc)
Round 2: Work 2 sc in next 6 sc in the round (12 sc)
Round 3: Work / in next stitch/ 6 times (18 sc)
Round 4: Work / in next stitch/ 6 times (24 sc)
Round 5: Work / in next stitch/ 6 times (30 sc)
Round 6: Work / in next stitch/ 6 times (36 sc)
Round 7: Work / in next stitch/ 6 times (42 sc)
Round 8: Work / in next stitch/ 6 times (48 sc)
Round 9: Work / in next stitch/ 6 times (54 sc)
Round 10: Work / in next stitch/ 6 times (60 sc)
Round 11, 12, & 13: Work 1 sc in each stitch (60 sc per round). Remember to work all three rounds.
Row 1:Ch 21. Skip first ch, and sc in each chain across (20 sc).
Row 2: Ch 1, turn. 1 sc in each stitch across.
Repeat row two at 8 more times. You should now have a rectangular base that is 20 sc wide, and 10 sc rows tall.
You will now work around the outside of the rectangle with no turning or increasing. Work all the way around 1 sc in each stitch along the long edges, and 1 sc in each row on the sides (60 sc). Do not join. Continuing in spiral fashion, work 2 more rounds with 1 sc in each stitch (60 sc per round).
Shawna will bring a selection of charted designs for people to choose from and hand those out, along with some other tips and techniques.
