About: Hi! Welcome to my stuff to craft. I'm always a beginner crafter from DIY-ING, crocheting, knitting and all of sort of things. So feel free to follow me along. 🙂✌️

This is the SMILEY EMOTICON TAPESTRY CROCHET. And I'm gonna instruct you how to make one. Once you finished it I can assure you that it will put a little smile on your face. So happy making!

Supplies

- Black and Yellow Yarn

- 2 mm Hook (but any size will do)

- Scissor

- Tapestry Yarn Needle

- Paper or Graphing Paper

Step 1: Download the Emoticons

Download a smiley emoticon on the internet. Just make sure that the picture downloaded is high resolution.

Step 2: Making It Pixel-like

In the computer make a graph with 40 square each (LEFT, RIGHT, TOP, BOTTOM) using drawing software such as Illustrator, Corel or Excel. Input the smiley emoticon on top of the graph, then begin to convert it to a pixel-like graphics. The graph can also be done manually from paper or by using a graphing paper.

Then for the third time, chain 1 first, after that make a 40 single crochet (sc). At the end of that, it will be going to have 3 rows total.

Chaining 1 before to start another 40 single crochet.

    Nice job! However it would be nice if you explained it a little more detail regarding the colour changing. Would we change colour as we normally would in normal crochet? By starting next stitch and ending it with new colour? And when we chain one at the end of each row do we ever turn our work like in normal crochet? But great job. Thanks

    Hi Jessica-LynnW!
    Yes you can work it like a normal crochet. This stitch is only single crochet from start to finish. With regard to yarn changing, for example in row 4 our first yarn is black 15 single crochet when reach the 15 we can make the yellow yarn as the closing loop. That will be the start of the new color. Thanks!
