Instant Gratification Crochet

Even though I have (cough) six crochet projects currently on the go, I had this little idea the other night… for a spring-time anklet. I know, it’s not spring yet. In fact it’s freezing, grey, drizzly, and just blah. Which is all the more reason why a spring-time anklet seemed like an essential seventh project.

Anklet_5smlI bought this thread in New York last year. It was at the very back of a little haberdashery store in the Garment District – up a rickety staircase, buried in the bottom of a box. It’s Aunt Lydia’s Crochet Thread, size 3… and so lovely to work with.

Obviously, it’s a favourite with Moo too.

Anklet_8smlThank you all for the lovely comments about my adorable knitted socks. I’m wearing the green and pink pair now…. so so warm and snuggly.

Love Terri and Moo xxx

    • Thanks! The anklet is just rows of chain stitch, joined with a knot, and then tied to a clasp (or clasp ring actually – not sure the technical term). I tried to tie it neatly with half-hitch knots so that it would look nice. Then I cut the loose end quite close, and put a bit of craft glue on the join… so hopefully it won’t fray too much!
