Long time no type

I really have to apologize…I didn’t write for a long time. But I was quite busy the past few weeks. I had my final exams of my apprenticeship. But I think I passed it pretty good.
Now I have a bit more time to care about my hobbies.

I also have to tell you some thing about my ‘secret project’ I made a few month ago. But later…

 

Today I want to show you a small finished project of mine. I made a crocheted cover for my bicycle bell.
I can’t tell you the pattern but I want to give you a bit of a instruction.

 

1. I started to crochet the cover for the bell with white yarn. I started with a magic ring and 6 sc in it. In the next rows I increased like usual for crocheting a circle (increase 6 sc a row) until it was as big as the diameter of the bell. Then I stopped increasing and left a little hole for the bell push, if you can call it a bell push on a bicycle bell…

2. I looked in my book ‘100 flowers to knit and crochet’ for a proper flower. I chose a pretty big one and crocheted it with colors which are fitting to my bike.

But you can use every flower you want.

3. When I finished the flower I left over a bit of yarn to sew it to cover and tadaaa – finished!
