DIY Crochet Patch

      No Comments on DIY Crochet Patch
My daughter has the cutest capri’s that ended up with a snag / hole in them last weekend. I wasn’t sure how I was going to mend them without a big nasty patch. Then I was browsing Pinterest and ran across some cute pictures of triangular crochet motifs and then I knew just what to do!
I only had about half an hour to play around with this, I honestly thought I would just get it started and have to finish it later. But, once I grabbed thread (#10), crochet hook 2.75mm, scissors, liquid stitch it came together in under 20 minutes.
I tried to mimic one of the motifs (second one down in the right column) but I couldn’t quite make out what the pattern said. Plus once I got to round 3 I knew I wanted it small. I think it turned out pretty close, this design is not soley mine, but I will share how I made this motif.
Triangular Crochet Motif
Rnd 1: Ch 3, work all the following in the 3rd ch from your hook, dc, ch 2, (dc2tog, ch 2) repeat 4 more times, join in top of beg ch 2. You should have 6 dc clusters or petals.
Rnd 2: slst into next ch space, ch 2, work the following in the ch space (2dc, ch 5, 3dc), ch 1, hdc in next ch space, ch 1, [work the following in the next ch space (3dc, ch 5, 3dc), ch 1, hdc in next ch space, ch 1] repeat [] one more time.
Rnd 3: Ch 1, sc in top of next 2 sts, work 5sc in next ch space, sc in top of next 3 sts, sc in next ch space, sc in top of next st, sc in next ch space, (sc in top of next 3 sts, 5sc in next ch space, sc in top of next 3 sts, sc in next ch space, sc in top of next st, sc in top of next ch space) repeat again, join
Rnd 4: (ch 2, slst in next st), repeat round, join and fasten off.
To attach patch, I simple used the liquid stitch to adhere it over the patch.
My daughter is now very excited to wear her capri’s again!
