Fishnet Obsessed Crochet Fiend

« on: March 21, 2007 05:58:00 PM »

Armwarmers, and fishnets! I'm addicted! My fiance keeps telling me to stop, but I have too many ideas for new ones... and since I haven't posted in awhile, I thought I'd come show them off.

"Asymmetrical" Spring set

This is the set I posted about in Stitch and Botch-- the cuffs are two different sizes. But you can't tell, and I think it actually makes the set kind of interesting. Pair it up with the asymmetrical scarf with random solid stripes in it, and this set is perfect for slightly-chilly days!


(Better picture of the scarf)

Black and White Armwarmers
Black 4Ply acrylic and white sparkly 3ply acrylic. These are probably my favorite "armwarmers" of what I've made so far. As you can see, they look awesome with casual wear!



Beaded Black Fishnet Gloves
My first try at crocheting with beads (well, technically... I haven't done it in probably ten years, so it might as well have been the first time). 100% cotton black thread and plastic beads. I love these sooo much-- they're sexy!





"Western Silver" Gauntlets
My mom actually suggested this design, and I think they look awesome. Made of acrylic Lion Brand MicroSpun sport yarn and silver colored beads (not sure what the beads are made out of, I think they're probably plastic). Little different from all my other designs!




(Close up of those lovely beads!)


And finally...
White Queen Fishnet and Scarf

Another creation for a slightly chilly spring day. 3ply Acrylic sparkly white yarn set of fishnets and a scarf. Gotta have the fun fringe too, of course. XD




Thanks for looking. Any feedback?

Pretty pretty pretty!
Please don't stop this obsession. It is a healthy one. You can always sell the ones you don't use.
Great job!

Agreed, the beaded ones really rock! Are those fire-polished beads? What size did you use?

Wow, lots of replies overnight! Thank you everyone!

alwaysinmyroom: Definitely have to have tons of different ones to go with different outfits and moods! The black ones with the purple and red beads are definitely my favorite so far as far as "sexy and fun" go.

BeaG: I started a pair of red and black ones last night, despite vowing that I was going to stop for a little while. Must... keep... crocheting... fishnets!

ZaftigMomma: My mom actually suggested the design of the turquoise ones, and of course I had to jump on them. And crochet is so cool! You should learn-- it's easy once you get the hang of it!

whitestar: Not sure what kind of beads they are, aside from plastic. My mom let me raid her crafting supplies when I was up there a few weeks ago, and I saw those and couldn't help myself. Unfortunately they were from old necklaces or outfits and were just laying loose in her bead box, so I'm not entirely sure.

MarjorieCrochets: Thanks! I think I need to make some more of those black ones with different beads on them, apparently they're quite popular! I wish I had more of those specific beads... think I'll have to look for something similar.

Thanks again for all the nice replies everyone!
