My granny used to work with crochet thread like crazy. In fact, by the time I came along, I don’t remember ever seeing her with worsted weight yarn.
So when the Red Heart Crochet Along on Ravelry chose thread-based jewelry in May, I knew I had to try it for ol’ times’ sake.
Not only did I make some very pretty jewelry …
Remember, I work on commission if you’d like a set for yourself or for a gift!
I also gained a deeper appreciation for all those hours – years! – Granny spent crocheting queen-sized bedspreads from thread like this. She called it crochet cotton, if I remember right. And always in Ecru.
I have some of her more colorful work, too, so she must have made those before I was born – or at least before I remember checking dye lots at the store for her.
Oh I almost forgot! Here’s the recipe for the bracelets on Ravelry: Filigree Bracelet.
