Summer Valance in Crochet

Springcurtains..odt-1   PDF printable

curtains 009These pretty summer valances are just the thing for you if you don’t want a full curtain.  The size is perfect at  10″ x 26″.  You could easily make these longer than 10″ by just continuing the pattern to make a full curtain instead of a valance.  I think they are perfect when you have a mini blind and just want a little color.  The little flowers that I made on the flower loom can either be added or not as you wish and can be made in any color.  I wanted lots of color as you can see by the photos. Please respect that this is a pattern that was made by me and do  not take it as your own.

I used Lily Sugar N’ Cream yarn in the colors of Cornflower and Yellow for the valance.  A variety of different colors were used to make the flowers.  You can of course use any colors that you wish. Lily makes so many beautiful colors that it is hard to pick a favorite.  They also make beautiful variegated yarn as well.  You can look at all the different colors of yarn and get patterns too at their web site :

I used a size K crochet hook to make this pattern.

Abbreviations:

Ch: chain

DC: double crochet

slst: slip stitch

SC: single crochet

The directions are as follows:

Chain 80

Rows 1 – 14:  DC in third ch from hook. Ch 1, skip 1 ch, DC in next ch. Repeat across. Ch 3, turn.

Repeat this for the desired length that you want.  14 rows will get you a 10″ length.

Row 15 or the loop row.

At end of row 14, change colors if you wish. This is where I changed my color from yellow to cornflower blue.

Chain 1, sl st in first DC from row below. Chain 15, sc in same st.  *SC in ch 1 space, (SC in next DC, Ch 15, SC  all in same space) repeat from * across to the end and fasten off. Weave in loose ends.

Now you can add your flowers that you made on the flower loom.  You can get one of these flower looms at any craft store such as Michael’s or AC Moore or Amazon.  The directions come with the loom and are very easy to follow.

Since this is my pattern, please feel free to use it and even share it with others.  I have only one request and that is that you link back to me and give me proper credit.

 

I was not paid for this article by Lily, Michael’s , AC Moore or Amazon.
