DIY : Installing a Crochet Clock
This is one of my first projects when I learned how to crochet from youtube. The pattern is from a 2009 issue of Crochet Today ( which is no longer in business ). I thought it would be really cute if the clock functions as a real clock. So here are some tips on how to install a clock kit into a crochet clock.
If you are interested in making this clock, there is a free pattern available at ravelry.com
-for the clock to work, the clock hands have to move freely. It took me a day to fine tune it cuz the clock hands kept bumping into each other. Also the surface have to be as smooth as possible so that the hour hand will not get stuck.
-I didn’t follow the pattern 100%. I tested different areas of increases to get a rounder shape. Added an extra leg so it has 3 legs for stability. I’m pretty sure I did more rounds than called for on the clock face.
-The foam padding is makes the clock retains its shape and stand up on its own. Pretty cool. No need to deal with polyester stuffings !
This is such a cute idea! Not only is it functional, but it has a very warm vibe to it that is perfect for the home, and especially in a child’s room 🙂 I love it!!
Thank you Belinda ! It would look great in a child’s room. I love the whimsicalness of it.
This is really cute!
Thank you !
Love this! I will have to try it sometime.
