Lace rings

It doesn't take much to achieve the looks you want for yourself. In fact, it is at the reach of the hook.

These are the lace crocheted rings I made lately. The age span is non-existent. They can also be made out of colorful (thicker) yarn for a more playful and casual look, or with a fine and thin yarn for a more delicate appearance.

The pattern is a free download from Crochet Today you can find here.

To be honest I altered the patterns as I went along.
I also strengthened the lower part of the ring by making two sc rows.


For the red one I used one of my medallion patterns and I like how it turned out in its miniature version as a ring.

These are made with thicker yarn for colder days.

Hope you make lots of them. They are so easy and you'd love them on your fingers.

Hi Maya. the red one is especially stunning with your red polish. Nice pieces. Don't you think they'd be cool with a pearl in the middle too!

These are so pretty and have been bookmarked -- adding to my long list of projects and recipes to try. I have to be in the right mood to start anything new though. Right now, I am making granny squares just because. :) That rose lemonade in your previous post sounds very interesting. And your tablecloth in this post looks like something I have from India. Hope you are having a great day. Tammy
