The idea developed after looking an "old" pattern of mine ( do you remember this ?) ….. I decided to use the concept for something different, like a belt ( or even a bracelet !!!!! )….
I collected a 3,5mm hook and some colourful yarns from my basket…. maybe too many colours for a simple project like this ( I'm not really fond of my caramel yarn….), but the idea to follow was : TRY !!!
With the blue I crocheted 200 chains and I worked a looooong oval with double crochets ( I follow the US crochet terms), with 5 stitches in each curve.
The second round was made in caramel, with increasing stitches in both curves ( I crocheted 2 double crochets in each stitch of the first round of the curve, reaching 10 stitches per curve).
To embellish the centre of the work, I decided to use some hot pink in a chain of slip stitches ….
…. as you can see from the above pictures, I didn't stop with a pink line, I preferred to experiment some more, so I didn't cut the yarn and I slip stitched some extra "waves" that resemble a line of "A"s ….
…. and being my name Alessandra, I thought it was really good !!!!! ;oD
Then, I added a purple border all around ( made of single crochets ) and some more slip stitches with the grey ….
….. And last night, I finally crocheted the ties ( each one made chaining 72 stitches and working a row of half double crochets end embellished with a row of single crochets! ) ….
…. so now the "A" belt is wearable ….
…. another idea …. ????? …..
