Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS Fan Freebie!
These crocheted shade or lamp pulls are called Match Mates. I found them in a vintage crochet pattern booklet of Chair Sets. When I saw them I immediately thought how pretty they would be as Christmas Tree Ornaments.
Small and easy to make, two of these pretty shade or lamp pulls – turned into ornaments – use extra fine Size 30 Mercerized Crochet Cotton, along with a steel crochet hook in sizes No. 10 or 11.
The middle one uses Size 20 Mercerized Crochet Cotton and No. 8 or 9 steel crochet hook. Velvet ribbon is used for passing through the spaces and a bow.
Also 1/2 inch diameter rings are needed.
In this previous blog post, Vintage Thread Crochet Pattern Snowflake Star Ornament, I share several ways to stiffen these ornaments once you’ve crocheted them.
