Rainbows and Dreams crochet pattern

Beaded Rainbows and Dreamcatchers to make and wear!

Rainbows are traditionally a sign of hope, despite the various meanings which have become attached to them in more modern times.  Everything about them has always fascinated me, even the science.  Dreamcatchers also symbolise good things.

Besides, with a name like "Rainbow Valley", how could I not design a set like this.

Materials: DMC Petra No.5, various jewellery findings.

Each set has the individual amounts used for that set.   When using the hoops for the Dreamcatcher earrings, make sure you fix the ends firmly before starting as they are made to come apart to thread beads on.

Equipment:  1.50mm hook, beading needle and thread for threading beads, needle for sewing in ends.

Tension:  18 dc and 19 rows to 5cm square.

Celtic Blue scrochet pattern

The Celtic Knot is one of the best known motifs in Celtic jewellery and art.  The delicate twists and turns are found in ancient stone art and tattoos, in illuminated manuscripts - in fact, just about anywhere the Celtic people have travelled.
Similar designs exist in Norse culture, and as far as China.

I have only used some of the simplest but I am really pleased with the effect.

Materials: DMC Petra No.5, various jewellery findings.

Each set has the individual amounts used for that set.   When using the hoops for the earrings in the 3rd set, make sure you fix the ends firmly before starting as they are made to come apart to thread beads on.

Equipment:  1.50mm hook, needle for sewing in ends.

Tension:  18 dc and 19 rows to 5cm square.
