Creating crochet curtains with small round motifs can be a beautiful and intricate project. Here’s a simple and free pattern for a curtain with small round motifs. Please adjust the size and number of motifs based on your window dimensions.
- Worsted weight yarn in your preferred color(s) for the curtain panels
- Crochet hook suitable for your yarn (usually 4.0mm to 5.5mm)
- Yarn needle for sewing and weaving in ends
- Curtain rod or tension rod
- ch: chain
- sl st: slip stitch
- sc: single crochet
- hdc: half double crochet
- dc: double crochet
- tr: treble crochet
- st(s): stitch(es)
- Foundation Chain: Start by chaining the desired width for your curtain panel. For example, you can chain 60 for a standard window width. Adjust the number of chains to fit your window.
- Row 1: Sc in the second ch from the hook and in each ch across. (59 sc)
- Row 2: Ch 1, turn. Sc in each sc across. (59 sc)
- Repeat Row 2 until your curtain panel reaches the desired length. Measure your window’s height and crochet the panel accordingly.
Small Round Motif:
- Center Circle: With a contrasting color, make a magic ring.
- Round 1: Ch 1 (does not count as a st), work 12 dc into the magic ring. Join with a sl st to the first dc. (12 dc)
- Round 2: Ch 3 (counts as the first dc), dc in the same st as the join, 2 dc in each of the next 11 dc. Join with a sl st to the top of the beginning ch-3. (24 dc)
- Round 3: Ch 3 (counts as the first dc), dc in the same st as the join, dc in the next st, 2 dc in the next st, dc in the next st. Repeat from * to * around. Join with a sl st to the top of the beginning ch-3. (36 dc)
- Round 4: Ch 1, sc in the same st as the join and in the next 2 sts, ch 4, sk 2 sts, sc in the next 3 sts. Repeat from * to * around. Join with a sl st to the first sc. Fasten off.
- Create as many small round motifs as needed to cover your curtain panel. You can join them together using slip stitches or single crochets, or you can sew them together.
- Once you have your curtain panel covered with motifs, create a row of ch loops along the top edge. This will allow you to slide the curtain rod or tension rod through. To do this, evenly space ch loops (e.g., ch 5, sk a few motifs, ch 5) along the top edge.
- Slide your curtain rod or tension rod through the ch loops.
- Hang your crochet curtain in your desired location, making any necessary adjustments to the rod’s length.
Remember to customize the measurements, the number of motifs, and the placement of the ch loops based on your window size and design preferences. Crochet curtains with small round motifs can add a touch of elegance to your space. Enjoy your crocheting!
