I love thread crochet, so when I saw these cute thread crochet rings on Pinterest last year I HAD to make them! I’ve already made all three in every color of thread I have and sizes for me and for my girls!
This is ring 1 done with a smaller hook to create a smaller flower
And ring 2 using the hook the pattern calls for
I actually used the technique from the first rings (creating longer loops and connecting them in the back) with this doily earring flower!
Then I found this AMAZING and totally gorgeous ruffled ring! SERIOUSLY I’m going to make about 3 dozen of these!
So I thought my crochet rose would be perfect as a thread crochet ring! I love it!
Thread Crochet Flower ring
US 7 hook (1.5mm) – up or down a size or two is fine, it will just change the final size a bit
This flower can be rolled tight or as loose as you’d like it, so the size also depends on that.
Row 1: DC in 5th Chain from hook *CH 1, skip 1 (DC-CH-DC) in next ch (V stitch made). repeat from * across to end, turn.
Row 2: CH 3 (counts as DC) 5 DC in CH space, *SC in next CH-1 space, 6 DC in next CH-1 space (shell stitch made). Repeat from *, ending in 6 DC in last CH-1 space. Fasten off, but leave a good LONG tail for anchoring the flower. 6inches or so.
Starting at that end roll the flower up, this should have a natural twist so it should be easy!
Threading the tail onto the needle and weave across the base creating x’s all around. make sure not to pull TOO tightly!
Add it to a blank ring base! and Voila! Done!
