I've been whipping up loads of these little rings over the past couple of weeks. They are the perfect little craft for me right now, quick, simple and full of colour!
They are great little accessories for me right now too with the babe, as they are soft and I don't have to fear catching her on any sharp edges.
You can stack them up, wear the whole rainbow or keep it simple, whatever takes your fancy, though you'll most likely end up with a stack of them as they're so addictive to make.
If you fancy having a go yourself here's how you do it ::
4ply/fingering weight mercerized cotton yarn. I used DMC Petra 3 and 5 (holding 5 double for thickness).
ch - chain
dc - UK double crochet
dcBLO - UK double crochet through back loop only
sl st - slip stitch
st - stitch
Chain 13 (now this may not be the right size for you so pop the chain around your finger to give you an idea if it will work. I found 13 to be good for me, but also made some with 12 and some with 14 too so I had a mixture of sizes, play about to find the best fit for you) join last ch to first ch with a sl st to form a large ring.
Rnd 1 : Ch1, 1dc in each ch to end of rnd, join to top of first st with sl st, do NOT turn.
Rnd 2 : Ch1, 1dcBLO in each St to end, join to top of first st with sl st.
Weave in ends.
Told you it was quick!
