Chain crochet.

May 16, 2014

Today is like all week in Vienna rainy weather. It had been raining for so many days that even I – a rain-enthusiast – gets sick of it. It’s May! Where are the shorts-and-T-shirt-days?! The long nights with drinks in a park?! The hot summer thunderstorms?! I guess this pictures from last weekend (where it was cold but at least sunny) have to keep me warm the next days. Luckily I took those. Or rather my boyfriend. But it’s not only the hint of sun on my face that I want you to notice but rather my new necklace. Handmade of course.

It’s made so easily that I’m almost embarrassed to post it as a DIY. Aren’t the easy projects the best anyway?! At least that’s what I keep telling myself…

All you need is:
– zpagetti
– a chain
– a crochet hook
– scissors

Weave the zpagetti through the chain.

Now take the crochet hook and make single crochets all along the chain. I found this great infographic on the internet. I have no idea what the original source is. I tried to find it and linked it to the oldest source I found. Anyway. If you find the original, let me know!

Leave the ends longer that you can tie it around the neck. Now. It’s done!

Sorry for my hairstyle. I just figured I always have to excuse my hair style. Maybe I should just stop call it a hair style. Maybe I just call it hair. If you can’t change the thing, change the perspective. Right? Yes. Look at my funny hair! Isn’t it hilarious?!

You probably noticed that this sweater is the exact same one that I wore here. You’re right. Not that I only have this one sweater. It’s just my favorite. I bought it at COS (as well as the blouse I’m wearing) and I have to force myself not to wear it every single day. I’m in love. With a sweater. Sorry, boyfriend.

On a totally different note: the give-away for my etagére building set ended yesterday. I’m so thrilled that so many people took part. My boyfriend will choose the winner randomly this weekend and I will let you know asap. So check your mailboxes… It might be you!

Now. Carry on!
