Crochet Tree of Snowflakes: Small Doily #1

Crochet Tree of Snowflakes: Small Doily #1


Welcome back to The Crochet Crowd as my friends over yarnspirations.com. I’m your host Mikey. This has been designed by Katherine Eng of Red Heart yarns and what we’re going to be doing over the next week and depending on when you find this video of course is that we’re going to do one motif and there’s a total of seven of them. So we’re gonna do seven days of snowflakes here on The Crochet Crowd. So we’re gonna be starting off with the simpler ones and them get ourselves to the larger. The neat thing about this one is that the small motifs the very small ones there’s ten of those but the rest of them there’s only two of each of the other sizes. So it makes it for a nice quick and easy project. So this is a very large frame that’s 28 1/2″ by 42 1/5″ and I think that’s pretty cool. So I’m gonna be using Caron One Pound today. I’m gonna use a 4 mm, size ‘G/6’ hook and we’re going to begin and we’re gonna get ourselves started with our next snowflake. One more thing before I let you go and we go and do all these different motifs. On our website if you follow the link in the more information on this video, you’re gonna find all seven together in the same article. Also I have a couple tutorials on how to harden up snowflakes. So maybe you wanna make this into a decor um, like for your Christmas tree. You can do that and we have all that. So without further ado now let’s really begin. Let’s move along to the second snowflake. So it’s a small snowflake doily. So it’s the one up from the mini and this one here has five different rounds that we’re going to do. So let’s begin and we’re going to start off with a slip knot and we’re going to chain a total of four. So we have 1, 2, 3 and 4 and let’s just join this to the beginning chain and yarning over pulling it through and through and this will be the center ring. So when you go to do the next round I want you to keep the straggler around that same ring so it gets stuck underneath and now we’re going to begin round number one. Let’s begin round number one. We’re going to chain a total one first and then in the center ring, we are going to put in a single crochet. So one single crochet into the ring like so and then we’re going to chain two. So 1, 2, and we’re gonna do that so that there’s going to be six sides to this thing. So we’re gonna single crochet again and then chain 1, 2 and single crochet again and then 1, 2, single crochet again, 1, 2, single crochet again, 1, 2, so I’m just gonna check how many single crochets I have. I have 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. There should be a total of six so single crochet again. So that’s the last single crochet in there so chain two and then join it to the beginning single crochet and that will finish that. So if you’ve gone over top of the center ring with the straggler in place make sure you just get rid of it now. It’s just a lot easier and we’re gonna move on to round number two next. Let’s begin round number two. We’re going to slip stitch to the first chain two space which is next and we’re gonna start there. So slip there and let’s begin. So we’re gonna chain one to start and now in this one here the same chain two space I need you to single crochet and then chain two and single crochet. But before you move on to the next chain two space you need to chain two. Now go to the next chain two space and single crochet, chain two and single crochet and then chain two. Okay, jump to the next space. Single crochet, chain two, single crochet and then chain two. I actually don’t think I did this on my prototype when I did it. This seems new. I think I missed the chain two in between. So chain two and then in the next space single crochet, chain two, single crochet, chain two and then the next space. So how many spaces do I have, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 so this will be the last space here. So it’s single crochet, chain two, single crochet and then to finish that chain two and just join it to the first single crochet. I really do I think I did it differently last time seems a lot more open when I look at it. So anyway, that’s moving on to round number three. In round number three we’re going to play with to chain two spaces. So whether it’s the one that has single crochet, chain two, single crochet in the same one or whether it’s the chain two that separated them before you go into the next one. Every one of these is going to count. So we’re just going to slip stitch to the first chain one space or sorry chain two space. So just slip stitch to start and then chain one and then what we’re going to do in each one of the chain two spaces is single crochet, chain three and single crochet. So just jump to the next chain two space which happens to be in between if you see it and so it’s gonna be single crochet, chain three, single crochet. Next chain two space and so I want you to do this all the way around. There’s gonna be a total of 12 of these going all the way around. So just concentrate on that and every chain two space gets a single crochet, chain three, single crochet and I’ll see you at the end of this round. This is number three So I’m coming up all the way to the final chain two space so single crochet, chain three. This is definitely different than the way I did it before. [Laughs] Okay, so then join it to the first single crochet. Do you see how much different that looks? Very different! Okay, so let’s move along then to then to round number four. Let’s move along to round number four. We’re gonna slip stitch to the next chain three space and it’s kind of the interesting stitch here that we’re gonna do. So we’re gonna chain up one and we’re gonna do a single crochet in the same one. So, every other uh, space that we’re gonna do is gonna be slightly different. So here we go to the first time is that we are going to put in a chain five. So 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and then go to the next chain three space and single crochet. Now the next one to get to the next chain three space you have to only chain three. So 1, 2, 3 and single crochet in the next space. So the next one is back to five again. So 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and then single crochet in the next chain three space. So then the next one is three so 1, 2, 3, single crochet, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, single crochet in the next one, 1, 2, 3, so this is converting it back to a um, a hexagon. You can actually see it’s working out. So 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, single crochet, 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, it’s in and 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 uh, 4 and 5, single crochet and we started with chain five when we did this so this last um, gap must be a chain three and that it is but a just saying that it has to be. Okay, so that’s how you went around on round number four. Let’s begin round number five. Let’s just take our time it’s a little confusing. So here we go, and it’s not really confusing it’s just a lot of steps. Here we go. So we’re gonna chain two. So 1 and 2 and in the first chain five space what we’re going to do is that we’re going to single crochet and then chain five. So 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 and then single crochet back into the same chain five space. Now the instructions say then is that we are going to chain two and slip stitch in the next single crochet. So it’s the next one that you’re about to run into so it’s slip stitch there. And now it says to chain one and single crochet in the next chain three space and then chain one and slip stitch in the next single crochet. And now we’re about to do a point again. So we’re gonna chain two. So 1, 2 and in the chain five space it’s single crochet and then chain five so 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and single crochet and then chain two. Okay, and then you’re going to sing uh, slip stitch in the next single crochet, chain one, single crochet in the next chain three, chain one and slip stitch into the next single crochet. Okay, so let’s begin again, so chain two, single crochet in the chain five space and then chain five so 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and then coming in to the same space and then chain two, 1, 2 and then slip stitch into the single crochet, chain one, single crochet in the chain three space, chain one and slip stitch in the next single crochet. Let’s do another one so chain two and in the chain five space single crochet and then chain five so 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and then coming in single crochet, chain two, slip stitch to the next single crochet, chain one, single crochet in the chain three, chain one, slip stitch in the next single crochet and then begin another side. So chain two, single crochet, chain five, single crochet, chain two, slip stitch in the next single crochet, chain one, single crochet, chain one, slip stitch and then start the final side. So it’s chain two, single crochet, chain 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, single crochet, chain two, slip stitch to the next single, chain one, single crochet in the next, chain one and then that’s it. So just join it to the beginning where you started and then that’s it. So now what I want to do is that I want to just trim off this yarn and I’m gonna use a tapestry needle to pull at everything nice and tight and I’m just gonna go in and just go in once, twice and three times. And then I can get rid of that and I can see that it looks completely different than my original sample so better go refilm my intro because this is what it should look like and I don’t even know how I got that. [laughing] Maybe I created something new who knows. Until next time it’s Mikey on behalf of The Crochet Crowd as well as my friends over at yarnspirations.com. ❄️
