I decided to craft some for my young relatives and was absolutely delighted with the results.

To share in this joy, I have prepared a comprehensive tutorial based on Maya Kuzman’s original pattern from The Little Treasures. Let’s dive right into it!

Materials You Will Require

  1. Sport yarn in three distinct colors.
  2. A 3mm crochet hook.
  3. A tapestry needle for weaving in loose ends.
  4. Optional: beads, tassels, or any other embellishments that catch your fancy.

Stitches Used (American Terminology)

  1. Chain (ch)
  2. Stitches (st.)
  3. Slip stitch (sl st)
  4. Single crochet (sc)
  5. Double crochet (dc)

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Establishing the Foundation and Row 1:
  • Commence with Color A.
  • Leave a long tail.
  • Chain 71.
  • Begin in the 2nd stitch, single crochet (sc1) across all stitches (total of 70 sc).
  • Cut the yarn, ensuring you leave another long tail.
  • Do not turn your work.
  1. Crafting Row 2:
  • With your crochet work facing up, introduce Color B into the 1st stitch.
  • Chain 3 (this serves as your 1st double crochet, dc).
  • Add another dc into the same stitch.
  • Continue by double crocheting (dc2) into the next stitch and every subsequent stitch in the row (for a total of 140 dc).
  • Once completed, cut the yarn and leave a long tail, ensuring you do not turn your work.
  1. Finalizing with Row 3:
  • With the crochet work still facing up, insert Color C into the foundation row.
  • Chain 10 and slip stitch (sl st) into the 1st stitch of the second row. (Note: You have the option to skip adding this loop if it is not needed for hanging purposes and proceed directly to crocheting row 2).
  • Chain 3 (this counts as your 1st dc).
  • Double crochet (dc1) into the same stitch.
  • Continue by double crocheting (dc2) into the next stitch and all remaining stitches in the row (resulting in 280 dc).
  • Optionally, you can cut the yarn and weave in the tail from row 3 at this point. Alternatively, slip stitch to return to the foundation row and cut the yarn, leaving a long tail.
    1. Adding the Finishing Touches:

Gather all the tails and tie them securely into a knot

  • For an extra touch of flair, you can attach a tassel at this point. If you prefer beads, thread them onto the tails and tie a knot at the end to secure them in place and prevent them from falling off.
