I will be giving the Zinnia Flower Shawl as a gift soon and wanted to make a pin to match. This little pin will help keep your shawl in place, and looks fabulous too!
Click here for the Zinnia Flower Shawl Pattern...
Here's what you'll need for pin as shown:
- G (4.0 mm) crochet hook (for circle)
- I (5.5 mm) crochet hook (for flower)
- Scraps of yarn in two colors (yarn shown is sock yarn, Cascade Sock & Dream In Color)
- 1 Button
- Tapestry Needle
- Bar pin back or safety pin
- Pin shown measures 1.5 inches across. However using different yarn/hooks will yield other sized pins.
Note: When you make a pin to match your shawl, use a similar (or same) yarn as the shawl. My shawl was crocheted in sock yarn, so I used sock yarn to make my pin. Check the yarn label for hook recommendation.
Instructions for each part:
Flower (shown in green):
Foundation: Chain 5 and join with a slip stitch to form a ring.
Round 1: Work (3 dc, sl st) into center of ring six times, then join with a slip stitch to close flower and fasten off.
Circle (shown in variegated yarn):
Foundation: Chain 4 and join with a slip stitch to form a ring.
Round 1: Work 12 hdc into the center of the ring, then join with a slip stitch to close circle and fasten off.
Finishing & Assembly;
Weave in all ends. Stack components, bottom/flower, middle/circle, top/button, and seam together with tapestry needle and matching yarn. With matching yarn, stitch pin backing to the pin. Weave in any ends that remain.
