SOME REALLY CUTE TOY FURNITURE - 4
( #Blogaday 06/365 )


Welcome back again to my blogs on cute tiny toy furniture.  I do hope you are having as much fun as I am with all these tiny little creations.  If you have just joined my blogs, then this is my fourth blog on tiny little toy furniture and at the end of this blog there are links for all the ones before and lots of other stuff I've made. 

As you know, I’ve been making a living room of furniture for my friend, so lets see what I have come up with in this part of the series.

Materials used : Today I’ve used a combination of our lovely Indian Oswal Cashmilon 4-ply yarn and Vardhaman Millenium DK ply yarn with a 3.5 / 4 mm mm crochet hook 

Abbreviations used :
fsc : Foundation single crochet                                 dc : Double crochet
ch : chain                                                                    ch-sp : chain space
sp : space                                                                    rep : Repeat 


Stitches used :
Magic circle : To refresh your skill, please view this easy video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLuSVyKvoUg

fsc : Foundation Single Crochet : To refresh your skill on the fsc, please view this superb video by Tamara Kelly at the link  http://www.mooglyblog.com/foundation-single-crochet-fsc/

Hdc : Half Double Crochet : yo, insert hk into st ; yo (3 lps on hk), yo, draw through all 3 lps.  One hdc made.

Foundation half double crochet : A really lovely way to start a foundation row of chainless double crochet.  This unique way of starting makes your project even https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90iUfQ-_1IM

Chainless dc start : Instead of the usual start with ch 2 or ch 3, I’d like to introduce this lovely new way of starting a dc row.  Do take a look at this self-explanatory super video http://www.mooglyblog.com/chainless-starting-double-crochet/
In case you are unhappy with this start, or do not like it, do continue with the usual ch-2 or ch-3 start.  However, all instructions will be given assuming that you are using the chainless dc start.

Instructions using U.S terminology

In this blog, I worked on some living room furniture and then some tiny accessories, and as I've shown you in my earlier blog, this is the full range of stuff that I'd made. .. for the inside of the house.  For the outside, I'd also designed two small Christmas trees (also on my blog - so check link at the end of this blog)

1.       OTHER LIVING ROOM FURNITURE

For the cute little couch, foot stool, rugs, table lamp and table, I’ve used the pattern from this book. I find that it’s available at




Enjoy the photos that I've taken off all this splendid stuff

For the standing lamp, I used the pattern for the ‘light bulb’ & lampshade off the table lamp pattern here, attached it to a little post to the whole thing and ta da, got something different done !

The three-piece afghan is also from the same link and I just decided to make one more solo to go on top of the brown futon (shared in yesterday's blog) as my friend has one just like that on her side futon.



2.     TINY DOILEY

tiny crochet doily


Materials Used : I’ve used our Indian Red Rose metallic knitting cotton yarn with a 1.3 mm crochet hook.
Size : : 2.5” diameter

This doiley is for the top of that table.  I saw this tiny doiley somewhere online and thought it would be perfect for my tiny furniture.


Start : with a magic circle and 12 sc in that circle.  Join with a sl-st to the 1st st.
Pull lightly to close.

Round 1 : sc in the 1st sc ; *ch 3, sk next sc, sc in the next sc* ;
rep *to* all around ; ch 3 and join with a sl-st to the 1st st.

Round 2 : sl-st into the 1st ch-sp ; 5 dc in the same ch-3 sp ;
*ch 3, 5 dc in the ch-3 sp* ;
rep *to* all around ; ch 3 and join with a sl-st to the 1st st.

Round 3 : dc in the 1st 5 dc ;
*ch 3, sc in the next ch-3 sp ; ch 3, dc in the next 5 dc* ;
rep *to* all around ; ch 3, sc in the next ch-3 sp ;
ch 3, and join with a sl-st to the 1st st.

In the following row, we will join our 5 dc together using the dc 5-tog. For a “how to”, please check links under “stitches used”.

Round 4 : dc 5-tog over the 1st 5 dc ;
*(ch 5, sc in the next ch-3 sp) ; rep (to) once ; ch 3, dc 5-tog over the next 5 dc* ;
rep *to* all around ; rep (to) 2 times ;
ch 5, and join with a sl-st to the 1st st.

Round 5 : sl-st into the 1st ch-sp ; 5 sc in the same ch-5 sp ;
*sc in the next sc, 5 sc in the ch-5 sp* ;
rep *to* all around ; and join with a sl-st to the 1st st.

Fasten off and weave in ends.



3.     SMALL FLOWER VASE with FLOWERS

Finally in one corner of her living room, neatly tucked away is a beautiful vase with a lovely floral arrangement.  I thought I’d make her that too ( ;) .. so come along on our final journey for this blog.

Materials Used : I’ve used our Indian Anchor knitting cotton yarn with a 1.3 mm crochet hook ; the lid of a small bottle of Fevicol glue and finally some insoluble glue.
Size : 1.5” tall ; 1.5” wide ; 5” across

Start : with a magic circle and 12 dc in that circle.  Join with a sl-st to the 1st st.

Round 1 : sc-blo in the 1st dc and in each dc all around.  Join with a sl-st to the 1st st.
This forms the bottom rim of your flower vase

From the following round, I have chosen not to join with a sl-st and work in continuous rounds.

Round 2 - 7 : sc in the 1st sc and in each sc all around. 

For our final round, let’s work a definitive round of Reverse Single Crochet or crab stitch.

Round 8 : Crab stitch in the 1st sc and in each sc all around. 
Fasten off and weave in ends.

FLOWERS & LEAVES : For the flowers, leaves etc inside my little flower vase, I’ve used  ready made leaves and the stamens that one uses for making stocking net flowers.  You can make tiny little flowers using your colored yarn as well, so go a little crazy, create and enjoy.
