Here are a couple of recently completed pots crocheted with cotton string and starched hard with a cornstarch and water mixture to hold the shape. They make a lovely sound if you rap on them with your knuckles. They were worked freestyle with two strands of cotton string throughout. Pretty much entirely done in single crochet except for a few random rows in the smaller pot.
They could hold dried or paper flowers but I kinda like them empty and just chillin’ on the mantel.
Michele, these are so lovely & organic-looking. A must for me to try. I used to crochet a lot when I was younger and still do whenever I need a new winter cap, but haven’t picked up my hooks for ages. These pots will get me going again. The reason I stopped is that I hate reading instructions! Just hate it so these pots are right up my street!
Hi Lisa! I’m with you when it comes to instructions. We are rebels at our core, aren’t we? I like to make it up as I go and a lot of times I fail miserably but what can I do? I am what I am. Happily, these particular pots turned out nice. So yay!
Lovely to see you posting again, Michele – we’ve missed you !
Hi Val! How are you? Well, I hope.
I know. It’s been a dog’s age. Obviously I got busy with other things and blog took the brunt of it, but I never stopped making stuff so I was thinking I might post occasionally, here and there, when the mood strikes. I will play it by ear for sure.
Thank you for the lovely pots. Wonderful to see you again, you were missed.
Hi Sande! Thanks for the comment. Who knew that people still receive these posts after all this time?! I’m surprised, and glad you’re there. 🙂
