Finally I've found the way to make a lace weight parasol!!!  Grin

60 tiny daisy loom flowers with crocheted borders for having the hexagon shapes.

15 colours: burgundy, red, orange, light orange, yellow, neon green, green, emerald green, teal, turquoise, blue, dark blue, purple, violet, magenta. All of them are bordered with black for a lacy stained glass effect.







I hope You like it!  Kiss

Amazing - your scenery looks like you live in Kansas!!  We have that same scenery (and sun) going on here too.  But tomorrow, it is expected to start raining for two days.  That's okay by me, I like the rain and become more productive then! 

Again - your parasol is really pretty.  Smiley

 Cheesy Mostly I feel to be in "The Wizard of Oz"!!! I agree... Rain is magical! Cleans up my brain too! And the most important thing: without rain there is no rainbow!!! Thank You very much for Your nice comments! Have a nice "November rain"...  Wink

That is really beautiful! And I agree with everyone else about the scenery - the autumn colors are admirable and make the parasol look like it's straight from some fairy tale.
Great job!

So very beautiful! The colors and the contrast of the black lace part are working perfect together. Colorwise it's perhaps my most favourite of your works so far. They're just so vibrant!

Very lovely--I love the stained glass look of it!  Can you buy the parts for a parasol to attach your own top to? or did you take one apart?

This is stunning. I love the work on it. I've never looked at an umbrella and thought, "I can do something with that." I really like the idea of reusing umbrellas. It's amazing.

No links, but it's really easy to make them. All You need is a daisy loom maker!  Wink

thank you for your quick reply.
How did you make the flowers and what crochet stitch did you use to join them together? I am going to give this a try, if I can figure out the stitches used. It would make a lovely display in my shop in Ireland

The flowers are made with a daisy loom maker. After I had them all I started to join them with simple chains.  Wink
