I believe that there are many things that can be done with rings, one of the things that came to my mind right away was coasters!
My problem was: how can I keep all the rings together?
The answer that came to my mind was simple...crochet!
I am going to show you how to make a flower shaped coaster simply joining together a few rings.
You can play with rings and create any shape you like! You can see all the ones I made above.
Step 1: What you need
- 7 curtain rings (or any other kind of pretty large rings)
- cotton thread n° 3
- crochet hook n° 4 - 1.75
- white glue
List of stitches:
- chain stitch
- slip stitch
- single crochet - sc
Step 2: First row of single crochets
Now take a ring and make as many sc as you need to cover the whole ring with thread - you must work all around the ring. There is not a a definite number of sc because it very much depends on the size of the ring you are using.
When you finally finish to cover the whole ring, make a slip stitch in the first sc.
Step 3: Last row of single crochets
When you end the circle, make a slip stitch in the first chain and close everything, cutting the thread.
Cover all the 7 rings this way.
