Oh how I love crocheting with baker's twine and hemp yarn. This is the latest cuff I made. Super cute and easy. Here's how I did it:
- 3-ply baker's twine (Yarn A)
- 3-ply hemp yarn (Yarn B)
- Crochet hook: US B/1 (2.25mm)
- Tapestry needle
To begin: With yarn A, ch 7, turn.
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across, turn (you now have 6 sc).
Row 2: Ch 1, sc in each sc, turn.
Repeat Row 2 until the piece fits the circumference of your wrist, turn.
Button Hole Start: Ch 1, sc in first sc, ch 4, sc in last sc, turn.
Button Hole Finish: Ch 1, sc in each sc.
Edge Trim: With right side facing you and button hole at top, draw up a loop of yarn B at upper left corner of the cuff, near the button hole; ch 1, sc evenly spaced around, join with sl st in first sc.
Scallop Edge: Ch 1, *3 sc in next sc, sl st in next sc; repeat from * to end. Fasten off.
Use yarn B to crochet a heart using the pattern found here. With tapestry needle sew it onto one of the short edges of the cuff. Weave in all ends.
Happy crochet. :)
