Bobbie's Lace Wrap

M01229_bobbieslacewrap_300_small2
 
This design is one of my most special projects that I have created so far.
It can be found in the April 2016 issue of Crochet World and can be purchased as an instant digital download here.
 
 
We had many beautiful crochet projects around our house when I was growing up - most of these projects were crocheted by my father's mother, "Bobbie",  using the fine cotton crochet thread.  I loved to look over the shapes and stitches of these projects.  One of my favorite projects was the Queen Anne's Lace Tablecloth.
 
 
 
I re-created that tablecloth pattern to make this wrap in honor of my grandmother (whom I never met since she passed away before I was born.)  I changed the number of petals in each flower and crocheted a different type of leaf to join the spaces in between each flower.  I also crocheted it with a much thicker yarn by Omega called Fontana.  I love the salmon color!
(This yarn comes in several vibrant colors - click here to see more- Creative Yarn Source is a great supplier for cotton yarns.)
 
Thank you to Crochet World for printing a photo of me and my grandmother along with a paragraph about her and my inspiration.  She was a special woman who created beautiful crocheted items - I am proud to honor her memory with the Bobbie's Lace Wrap.
