I love crocheting, and especially using the crochet technique to crochet with recycled materials and non-traditional materials. Recently I spotted this bright clothesline at the dollar store, and just had to buy some to see what would happen if I tried to crochet with it. It turns out to be a bit difficult to crochet with synthetic rope as it has no give and is on the slippery side, but I managed to use up my purchase by making these bright orange granny squares.
Now the question is, how shall I use them? They are waterproof, so could be used to make a garden or patio garland, or maybe something decorative for my son's room. Hmmmmm, they are too thick to use as coasters, but joined together they could make a mat of some sort. Maybe a trivet to put under a plant......? Any ideas?
- synthetic clothesline in bright colors
- a size 10mm metal crochet hook, and a 5mm hook to use when weaving in ends
- a bit of patience!
Crochet a traditional granny square starting with ch4 and making a circle. Crochet loosely and enjoy. It is always a good idea to try crocheting with a certain material before you have your heart set on making something with it.......in this case I won't be making any large projects with this clothesline, but hope to find a use for these cuties, which are perfect for summer decorating.
