Crocheted "Vintage" Shade Pull #3

I have always loved crocheting with thread, making doilies and dresser scarves and table runners and the like. But I also really like making something nice that can be finished quickly. The crocheted shade pulls which I shared with you recently are just two examples of practically instant gratification. And here is another original pattern for a vintage looking crocheted shade pull.

Start out with a small plastic ring and work 20 single crochet stitches into it. Join with a slip stitch.

Chain 2 and work one double crochet into the joining stitch. Work two double crochets into each stitch around and join with a slip stitch. You should have 40 stitches on your ring.

Chain 8, skip the next 7 stitches and work a single crochet into the 8th stitch. Do this 4 more times. Into each of the 5 loops, work two single crochet, two half double crochet, two double crochet, one triple crochet, two double crochet, two half double crochet and two single crochet.

Vintage Crocheted Shade Pull 3Now work 150 chain stitches, or however many you need to make your hanging loop as long as you want it. Slip stitch at the base of the chain, cut thread, pull through the last loop and secure. Weave in ends and hang.

Vintage Crocheted Shade Pull 3This is how mine looks in the front window. I think I'd like to come up with a little different pattern for each window in the house. If I do, I'll be sure to share them here!
