Well, I think I really just winged this one. I might have seen a picture of a similar one somewhere.

Well, you just start with the hoop. I made this one but you can buy them. The twisted wire round the edge is for deoration and kinda helps the 'web' stay in place.

As you can see on closer inspection, the pattern isn't really that regular. You jst keep winding the wire around the loop till you get to the bottom. When you get to the loops at the bottom you can use round nose pliers to kepp the sizes virtually the same size. Then finish the pattern up the other side. I was just mucking around with it.

As for the WEB...

You start with the outer loops. Secure the wire at the top of the loop. The next place you wrap the wire is one fifth of the way around the loop (more or less, you can di it in smaller intervals for a more complex web). You can prob mark your intervals beforehand. When I wrap the wire at the intervals I bring the wire from the back to the front of the loop, and do that at each interval.

When you've done the first set of arcs you should be able to figure out the rest...

But if not...

Once you get back to the beginning, bring the wire to the middle of the first arc. You don't need to cut it off, I just kept mine going, as you can see in the photo. hook the wire over the first big arc as you did earlier and do this with all of the arcs, remembering to thred on a bead or more wherever you want.

That's pretty much it. It's just trial and error, really. But once you get the first one you won't have any trouble with any after that (unless my directions are REALLY bad). I tried drawing pictures but they were pretty lame. Hope I helped.  Cheesy

Did you mean something more like this one, craftyhev?


I made this one a while ago, sorry about the crappy pic.  The lighting in my house is BAD.

Anyway, I can do up a tute for this one soon if you would like?  I need to fix it anyway, its been knocked around a bit in my (many) house moves.

Oh, you will need to know VERY basic chain stitch crochet to make the netting around the edge for this one.  Let me know if you want the tute and I'll see what I can come up with.

Well, if Craftyhev doesn't want a tute for that I would certainly appreciate one. I love the generosity of people on this forum  Grin

Ooh. Cmc_aust, I figured Craftlyhev meant like jewellery but, ooh, that looks a bit more complex. I'd try the tute!  Cheesy Although how good is it at catching dreams? There seem to be some big gaps in there  Grin
