The Trouble with Thread Trebles

Ack!!!!  I didn’t realize it had been so long!  I’m enjoying my recent opportunities to translate crochet pieces and diagrams into written instructions.  It’s proving to be a rewarding challenge that I am enjoying.  If you have ever written a pattern, you will know that it is sometimes monotonous, but can be well worth the effort in the end.

As far as my latest crochet project goes……  it’s slow, done in thread, and full of treble stitches.  As in over 200 or even 400 treble stitches in a round.  I’m to the point now that if I start crocheting, the repetitive trebles put me to sleep in about 15 minutes, which is entirely not what I want to happen!

I do love working with thread crochet and the beautiful projects that can be made (I was just able to pick up more than 75 patterns, including some fabulous tablecloth designs, for less than $1 each!).  On the down side, thread projects take a much longer time to complete, and can be tedious after awhile.

Do you work with thread crochet?  If you do, what projects do you make with thread?  Let me know in the comments!

  1. I recently crocheted a Bridal shawl for a friend of mine. It did get repetitive but I like to have a couple of projects going at a time so that I can have a break. Love the rose and am going to make it to wear on my outfit for her wedding in early October. Thank you so much for printing it. I don’t like to work from grafts….but do love to crochet beautiful things. Joyce
