Mini Dream catchers are quite special decorative items. They are meant to have mystic properties and they are often as gifts for protection.
Making a crochet dream catcher isn’t the most difficult of tasks, but having a pattern to work from is always helpful. Today free pattern is made from all the trash left, Used a bangle, a tiny practice motif and unused Pompom Earrings.
This pretty motif used is worked in two colors. It is crocheted in the round starting in the center with the flower and working outward from there. This is an easy crochet project that works up quickly. The size of this Irish Touch Motif is 10.0”
Supply List for Mini Dream Catcher:
- Yarn or Crochet Thread: You can use just about any size fiber to make this project. We have used Anchor No. 40 Crochet Cotton Thread of 3 colors.
- Crochet Hook Size: To crochet the flower, we used a size I.75mm crochet hook.
- Wooden Ring of Size 2.4’’ or any waste metal bangle
- Mini Pompom Balls or Artificial Feathers.
- Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
The motif measures about 2.3 inches in size. The sizes will vary based on supplies used and other factors.
Using the Lacy Motif –
Unlike most crochet patterns, this pattern has no gauge, no thread requirement and no hook sizes.
That’s because you can vary the size and appearance of each motif to fit the needs of your project. If the motif is for a bedspread, you could choose size 5 cotton thread and an appropriate hook, the same motif could be made with size 10 cotton thread and a similar hook for a doily.
When choosing the thread and hook for your project experiment with a variety of threads to achieve the appearance and texture that pleases you.
