Crochet Dream Catcher

Happy Friday! It’s a lovely day for crochet, well any day is ending in ‘y’ isn’t it 😆. I was going through my patterns and thought it best time I updated this one with some step-by-step photos and some new colours 🌈. I do have a thing for colour. So below, you will find  the updated version which has a new colour on each round, therefore there are no slip-stitches when going on the the next round. Some knowledge or experience with standing stitches is handy. So is google if you are unsure 😜.

To attach to hoop, cut a piece of yarn the same material that you just used about 1m/40 inches. Thread onto needle, insert needle through ch-1 sp of any ‘point’ made in the last round, holding the crocheted part inside the hoop, thread needle under hoop, bringing it back over the top and into the next ch -1 sp, repeat around and fasten off, weave in yarn.
To get the same look as this new dream catcher, repeat this, but go the other way so you criss-cross over the ones already made.

Cut ribbon/lace into desired length and attach to bottom oh hoop using a slip knot method. I think it’s called something like that, Fold ribbon in half and insert the middle (loop part) through the sp created when attaching crocheted part to hoop, pull wrap over the ‘legs’ of the ribbon, they just look like hanging legs to me lol, so that it creates a loop. Ta da 😃.

ORIGINAL VERSION:

Howdy Doody! I thought I’d share a new pattern with you all. So here it is… (this photo is of the crocheted work facing the wrong way, I put the ribbon on back to front 😉  )

Materials:

– I used Patons 4ply Cotton in Black
– 3.25mm recommended hook
– Scissors
– Yarn needle
– 10 inch / 25.5cm hoop (bought this one from Lincraft for the Aussies)
– Ribbon or lace for detail

Notes:

– This pattern is written in US terms
– Not as hard as you think 😉

Stitches and Abbreviations Used:

– sc = single crochet
– ch = chain
– ch sp = chain sp
– dc = double crochet
– dc2tog = double crochet 2 together
-dc3tog = double crochet 3 together
– tr = treble
-sl st = slip stich

Pattern:

1: Make magic ring, ch3, 15dc in ring, join with sl st (16sts)

2: ch4 counts as dc + ch1, (dc + ch1) in each st around join with sl st (16sts)

3: sl st to ch sp, (ch2 counts as start of dc2tog), dc in same sp, ch5, (dc2tog + ch5) in each ch sp around, join with sl st to first dc2tog (16 loops)

4: sl st in first 2 sts of ch5, sc into ch sp, ch7, *(sc in next sp + ch7)* repeat around, join with sl st to first sc (16 loops)

5: sl st in first 3 sts of ch7, sc into ch sp, ch 9, *(sc in next sp + ch9)* repeat around, join with sl st to first sc (16 loops)

6: sl st in first 4 sts of ch3, 3dc in same sp, ch3, (5dc + ch3) in each sp around, finish with last dc in the first loop, this will be crocheted over the sl st (16x 5dcs)

7: sl st in next to sts so that you are in the middle dc from previous round, ch3  counts as sc + ch 2, *(dc, ch3, dc) in next sp, ch 2, sc in middle dc from previous round, ch 2* repeat around 14 more times, (dc, ch3, dc) in next sp, ch 2, join to first sc with sl st.

8: ch3 (counts as sc + ch2), *(dc3tog, ch2, dc3tog) in next ch3 sp, ch 2, sc into sc from previous round, ch2*, repeat around 14 more times, (dc3tog, ch 3, dc3tog) in next sp, ch2, join with sl st to 1st ch of ch3 at the beginning of the round.

9: ch7 (counts as tr + ch3), tr in same st, ch1, *(dc, ch3, dc) in sp between dc3togs from previous round, ch1, (tr, ch3, tr) into sc from previous round, ch1* repeat around 14 more times, (dc, ch3, dc) in next sp between dc3tog, ch1, join with sl st to the 4th ch.

10: *(2sc, ch2, 2sc) in ch3 sp, sc in next ch1 sp*, repeat around and join with sl st to first sc. Cut, secure yarn and weave in end.

To attach to hoop, cut a piece of yarn the same material that you just used about 1m/40 inches. Thread onto needle, insert needle through ch2 sp of any ‘point’ made in the last round, holding the crocheted part inside the hoop, thread needle under hoop, bringing it back over the top and into the next ch2 sp, repeat around and fasten off, weave in yarn.

Cut ribbon/lace into desired length and attach to bottom oh hoop using a slip knot method. I think it’s called something like that, Fold ribbon in half and insert the middle (loop part) through the sp created when attaching crocheted part to hoop, pull wrap over the ‘legs’ of the ribbon, they just look like hanging legs to me lol, so that it creates a loop. Kind of like when you attach tassels to blankets, my brain has gone blank, I am not even sure if you call them tassels now lol. Sleep deprivation will do that to you.

I hope you enjoy making your own dream catcher – they are a lot easier than you think they would be. Emily 🙂
