Crocheted with two strands of thread. I liked the sparkly gold with purple. You can use one color or two, but thinner thread will make a smaller project.
Approximate Time: 20-30 minutes.
- cool temp glue gun
- crochet hook size "E"
- 12-13 yards double strand crochet thread
I prefer the thicker kind, it makes the work stronger.
- roses, ribbons, buttons, pearls, broken jewelry
I prefer the kind that bends to close and unclips to open.
- Row 1: Ch 6, join.
- Row 2: Ch 3, make 11 DC's in loop for 12.
- Row 3: Ch 3, make 1 DC in same st. Ch 3, skip 1, make 2 DC in next st. across for 6 sets of 2 DC.
- Row 4: Ch 4, make 2 DC's in next ch 3 space from previous row. Ch 2, make another 2 DC's in same space. Do not ch between each set, across for 5 total, with a ch 1 and DC in last st. on edge. This gives you the same effect as the chain 4 in the beginning of this row, but puts your work on the top.
- Row 5: 2 Sl St to first ch 3 loop from previous row, ch 3, making DC in same st, ch 5 and sl st in first chain from base for a “picot”, then another 2 DC's in same loop. Repeat across for 5 clusters and picots. Break off and weave in tails.
- I love buttons that look old, so if you have them, some pretty pearls, or just about anything you want to “doll it up” with. Have some fun. Remember this is to wear or give, so you won't likely make another one like it.
- Tie to a barrette back, the kind that is bent is my favorite, but you can also use some left over thread to do on a comb. When it's secure, you can brush on some glue that won't show or just leave it tied. Chances are you won't have any trouble.
I had a lot of fun making this, and will be in my line of kits for 2012. N-JOY!

A delightful pin or magnet made of single crochets that looks good enough to eat!
Approximate Time: 1 Hour
- ecru or tan crochet thread
- flavor color like pink, chocolate, etc.
- crochet hook size "E"
- tacky or hot glue
- I double strand most of my work, so give yourself about 16 yards doubled of tan for cone.
- Chain 2, then make first SC (single crochet) in first chain from hook. Mark this one as you are not going to join.
- Keep making 2 SC's in each stitch till you get to the desired height, about 1 1/4 inch tall. Join with SP (slip stitch) and fasten off.
- With flavor color, do the same to begin the the thread till your work is the same width as the top of the cone.
- Then, make a small ridge around the perimeter, as shown in the photo. This was simply two in each SC, then a chain 1 between.
- Sew this 3/4 around to the cone, stuff with batting or cotton balls, and close seam.
- Hot glue on the pin back or magnet and sit back and wait for the compliments!
