DIY--Crocheted Pattern Weights


About a week ago I came across a Google+ post from www.thezenofmaking.com about crocheting around ordinary washers that you can purchase from your local hardware store.  I knew as soon as I saw them I wanted to do the exact same thing to my plain old boring washers.  What stinks now is my future posts of projects I have taken pictures of with the weights on the pattern, don't have the nice bright colors of yarn on them.

I have not crocheted anything in over two years, but I quickly realized that it is just like riding a bike.  Once you have learned how to do it, you really never forget.  You may need a quick refresher on the different types of stitches, but it all comes rushing back.


 I purchased my washers from Lowes Home Inprovement Store about 2 months ago. They weren't expensive.  I want to say about 35 Cents a piece. I only purchased 10.



  I may have to purchased more because I had so much fun crocheting.




I used Lily's Sugar 'n Cream 100% Cotton Yarn.  It was purchased from Joann Fabrics some time ago.  I used to make dish clothes and place mats with this yarn.
