Crochet Silk Yoke

Hello All,

Again here is an FO 🙂
Generally I forget to take in-progress pictures and even if I take it, I forget to blog about it. 🙂
So something happened and this WIP never saw the blogland.

And here it is an FO neatly stitched( by tailor) and ready to be worn.

The motifs are made in this pattern and I tried few joining techniques. Later I gave 3-4 borders in round and then shaped it as per my prestitched kurta.

Are you wondering why 2 pieces and not much contrast too..
Well when I bought the material, the crochet yoke was bright over the brown material than the pink silk cotton. So I decided to have the brown as the background for yoke and use the pink for the bottom flair.

So All in all, I’m satisfied with the project and should convey many thanks to my friend.It was her idea to use crochet yoke for kurta and also she got it stitched from her tailor. Thanks a ton dear.

The yarn is Maharaja Silk yarn from Silk Indian. The Yarn I bought almost 2 years back and finally I have used half of it. Any suggestions for other half?
It is not enough for a shrug or for a shawl.



Crocodile Stitch Flower Cushion

Hi All,

Welcome back from the Diwali celebrations and the crafty endeavors.
Hope it was all success.
Post Diwali, I started series of crochet projects and they are all cushions this time.
The First one to get completed is the Crocodile stitch flower Cushion from here

I followed the written pattern and referred to the photo tutorial for the petal rounds. It is very easy for it looks difficult.
When you make always count and watch where you are slip stitching (petal tips). Otherwise it is just as easy as any other blocks.

Instead of stitching the crochet square to a ready-made cushion, I stitched a cushion cover with matching dimensions 🙂
I used a plain white cloth for cushion and lined it with Yellow printed and self design cotton material. Remember I used the same to line my prototype sling bag.

Once the cushion cover was made,the crochet block was stitched on it. Just like this.. Simple

The Cushion Front and Back.
