  1. I have bought silver and gold thread over in the embroidery floss section, and have crocheted trim with it. Wouldn’t it be pretty to do that with this pattern? Maybe a silver star and gold circles and trim or vice versa. Also feed some crystal e-beads onto your thread before starting to crochet the border, and pop one into each of the little points?

    Thanks for the pattern!

    This is so cute, maybe i’ll get bigger rings and do it with yarn (because I don’t like to work with thread). this is such a cute idea. Also Metta Nicewarner, that is a really nice idea you have.

    Thanks Metta, Pavi, Raquel, Tennyemaye and Jackie! You’re welcome. I think your ideas are great, Metta and Raquel. Wish I can see what you make out of this!

    Very pretty! I’ve tried crocheting in rings before to make an Angel, but I didn’t like the finished product. I think this one would be nice. It almost looks like it was tatted. I’ll have to give it a try. Did you know…… the plastic ring on your soda bottle (the one left after you unscrew the top) is 1 inch?

  7. Chris says:

    You could glue a child’s picture in the rings for a keepsake ornament. You may need to make the rings larger-wouldn’t this make a neat gift for a grandparent’s tree with pictures of the grandchildren in the rings? 🙂
