:: A Crocheted Frame- “With my Hands” ::


I mentioned the other day I was thinking about embellishing a round mirror that is hanging in my bedroom…
I also showed you plenty of inspiration photos because I was just having a hard time deciding. 
I went with the crocheted frame!

It was dreary outside all day today (Saturday) and there was never any good lighting for pictures…

Before:


During:

I took this one while I was fitting the frame before I added the decorative trim.  It is very simple—but I wanted a bit more.

After:

I like this crocheted frame done in White… at some point in the future, I think I may try another color.  Who knows?

I also like this shelf.  I can’t remember when I hung it up there. I like it here under the mirror,now. The jar has some vintage hankies in it; I used to collect them and have used a lot of them in projects over the years.  I think these are all I have left now.

I started making this frame on Thursday night…I didn’t have a pattern so I had to just “wing it”.  I worked on it a little bit Friday—but had the Littles all day.  Not a lot of time to sit and crochet while they’re here, so I did most of it today (Saturday).  A short and easy project for sure.

I first saw a similar crocheted frame on Pinterest you can see my crochet board called ::HOOKIN’::

I've looked and haven’t seen a pattern anywhere, maybe if you are on Ravelry or something like it…you might know of a pattern. I’m going to try and write MY  pattern out—and maybe I’ll post it. :)

Wow, I'm impressed! I don't have the patience to crochet...I usually get off and have to pull several rows out because I was in denial. LOL. It's very pretty! :)

That really makes your mirror look nice on the wall. I've seen some framing patterns with some yarn company sites I watch. They are fun, aren't they?
