Lately I've been making a lot of crocheted Christmas decorations for my Etsy shop. One of my favorite ones was a reindeer I made with a little pocket on its back.
In the meantime, I was thinking about making some napkin rings for Christmas, and this morning I finally had the idea of making a napkin ring with the reindeer's face on it, just a little bigger than the one I already made.
So here it is!
You just need to know a few basic crochet stitches to make this project and sew the pieces together.
You can follow this Instructable to make as many napkin rings as you want!
I am going to make more with different designs in the next days so I will update this Instructable with the new ones soon. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this one and if you do, I would really appreacite your vote :)
Step 1: What you need
- Beige, brown, red cotton - I used n° 3 and n° 5
- crochet hook - what works best with your cotton, I used a n° 4 - 1.75
- 2 black beads
- thread and needle
- chain stitch
- slip stitch
- single crochet - sc
Step 2: The Ring - part 1
So let's start making one...
Using beige cotton chain 5.
Make 4 sc in each chain starting from the second one from hook.
This is the first row. You will need 40 rows.
So, chain 1 and turn.
Keep making 4 sc in each stitch of the previous row.
Continue this way until you have 40 rows.
I know they seem so many, but I promise it won't take too long! :)
You can adjust the number of rows depending on how big you want your ring to be.
More rows - bigger ring. Less rows - smaller ring.
