A little known Canadian crocheter (me!) has won the gold medal in Crochet!  Yay!

Actually, if there was such a sport, I'm sure I'd place, considering all the practising I do!! (practicing?)

Anyhoo, here are the pics!  Pattern to follow hopefully tonight, although it is really very VERY easy!



In conclusion, good luck to all the Olympians! and Olympic crocheters!

Pattern now available on my blog, and here!


Gold Medal Pattern
By Annette Morrison, February 2010
Free to use for anything you want!!! 
(This pattern has not been tested.  If there are errors, please pm me, and I'll correct it for you and everyone else as soon as I can)

Tools:

Gold worsted weight acrylic yarn (I used some chunky stuff I had laying around, but it would probably be easier to embroider on something like Red Heart Supersaver)
Blue worsted weight acrylic yarn
Scraps of dark blue, black, red, yellow and green yarn.
3.5mm crochet hook
scissors
tapestry needle

Medal (Make 2)
With Gold.

1.  6 sc in magic ring, or chain 2, 6 sc in second chain from hook.  Do not join rounds.
2.  Sc inc every sc (12)
3.  (1 sc, 1 sc inc) around (18)
4.  (2 sc, 1 sc inc) around (24)
5.  (3 sc, 1 sc inc) around (30)
6.  (4 sc, 1 sc inc) around (36)
7.  (5 sc, 1 sc inc) around (42)
8.  (6 sc, 1 sc inc) around (48)
9.  Sl st in next, FO.

Embroider the Olympic logo as pictured, as well as the year.  Or get funky with it!  I thought a tiny granny square motif indicating the sport of crochet would be cute.  Or you could put a motif of any kind of hobby on it.  Have fun!

Then, join the two medals together at the top about 3 stitches to the left of the center with a single crochet, right sides facing out, and single crochet around. Slip stitch to the first single crochet, then chain 6 tightly. Join with a slip stitch to the 3rd single crochet to the right of the centre, and fasten off, weaving in ends.  This forms the loop for the neck strap to go through.

Strap
With Blue.

Chain 145, (or whatever length you want).  In 3rd chain from hook, double crochet in each chain across.  Fasten off.  Being careful not to twist the strap, pull one end of the strap through the medal loop.  Sew the two ends of the strap together.

Voila! You are now an Olympic Gold medalist!  Congratulations!
