Another "Vintage" Crocheted Shade Pull

Here is another original 'vintage' shade pull for you. This one is similar in its beginning rounds to the first one I posted here and the overall look is still what I would call Flower-ish. But it's very easy and quick to make and looks pretty hanging in the window. Here are the directions:

Using a 1/2 inch plastic ring, #10 crochet cotton and a size 7 steel crochet hook, work 24 single crochet into the ring, joining with a slip stitch to the first single crochet.

*Chain 3, skip 1 single crochet, work one single crochet in next stitch.* Continue working from * to * around the ring, joining with a slip stitch at the base of the first chain 3.

Work 1 single crochet into the first loop, *chain 5, 1 single crochet in next loop* ending with a single crochet in the first chain 5 loop.

Work 6 single crochets in each loop around.

Work 100 chain stitches, or whatever number you need to make your hanging loop the desired length. Slip stitch at the base of the chain. Weave in ends and hang.

Vintage Crocheted Shade Pull 2This is a close-up of the finished design. I think it is pretty and sort of delicate looking, but I also think it would hold up to years of use hanging on a window shade.

Vintage Crocheted Shade Pull 2This is how it looks hanging in my front office window. Don't you think it's much more attractive than the old tassel?

If you like these shade pulls for a change, soon I will show you some beaded shade pulls that add a little color and shine to your windows.
