SUN LIGHT OR DREAM CATCHER 3
If you’ve been following my blogs, you’ll know that I’ve been making these tiny doilies that can work as a snowflake ornament, or a table coaster.. and /or a sun / light catcher. So check out all these ideas in my blog.. so welcome back and let’s have fun.
In this blog, let’s work on this lovely creation and see what you’re gonna make of it eventually !

Stitches used :
Magic circle : To refresh your skill, please view this easy video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLuSVyKvoUg
Chainless dc start : Instead of the usual dc row 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 video at http://www.mooglyblog.com/chainless-starting-double-crochet/ . In case you are unhappy with this start, do continue with the usual ch 2 or ch 3 start. However, all instructions are given assuming that you’re using this chainless dc start.

For this sun / light / dream catcher, I’ve used the pattern from The Chilly Dog for the really awesome star dream catcher.
I just loved how the pattern works up and think that this is going to be one big hit. I also feel that my metallic yarn has added more to the awesomeness of the whole thing.. what do you think?
I started with metallic yarn and just a circle.. no beads..
and then.... just for some more bling, I threw in some beads and stuff.. and oh mah Gawd, methinks this is the best dream catcher I've made so far! :)
and just showing off.. here's some super photo bombing..
OK.. enough talking.. head on over to the blog for the pattern and have a fun creative time.
