Keep warm your photo frame!
The crochet photo frame I have designed will keep warm the putto angel my friend Ursula kindly drew for my wedding’s invitations. I though the putto angel was cold in this silver frame and he also missed the heart to hit with his bring-love arrow!
Frame size: 20×24 cm with a border of 4 cm.
Yarn: leftoverss orange and white Cervinia Caprice [100% acrylic; 50g / 1 OZ Â¾ – 145.45
Materials: tapestry needle, scissors, silver lurex yarn
Hook: US size G/6 â 4 mm
20×24 cm with a border of 4 cm
you do not need a gauge for this project.
Ch156 (the number of ch is calculated on the interior side of the frame border in my case it is 12×17 cm), sl st in first ch to form a rnd shape â take care not to twist the ch!
Rnd 1: ch4 *dc3, dc3tog* end with a sl st in the first dc (that is the 4 ch you have made at the beginning of the rnd)
Rnd 2: ch3, dc2 in next st, *ch4, sk 3 st, sc*
Rnd 3: *ch8, dc2 on the first dc of the previous rnd, dc1, dc2 on the next st*.
Rnd 4: ch7, sc1 in the middle of the 8 ch of the previous rnd, *ch4, dc2, sc1, dc2*.
Rnd 5: ch3, dc2 on the sc of the revious rnd, *ch3, sc1 on the next dc of the previous rnd, ch4,sk st, sc1*, close with a sl st.
Rnd 1: c1, sc2
Rnd 2: c1 sc3 – inc 1 st every rnd until rnd 9. From rnd 10 to rnd 11 you will be crocheting just one side of the top of the heart at a time.
Rnd 10: sk st, sc4 turn (you will complete the left top part of the heart after having closed the right part).
Rnd11: sk, sc3
Repeat rnd 10 and 11 on the other side of the heart.
Sl using white yarn interwowen with silver lurex all aroung the heart.
