Overlay Crochet


It seems like Overlay crochet becomes more and more popular. I really like the look of it but didn´t try it. But everytime I see it, it makes my fingers itchy and my Hooks are calling for me :). It looks so artsy and colorfull. So finnaly I decided to find a pattern I like and start a project.

I bought the Book “Crochet Master Class” there’s a really beautiful cushion in there in overlay technique. You can see it on the cover.  But to me it seemed a bit big for a first Project.

A while before that I bought “Crochet Overlay Jewelry”. Very beautiful pieces in there but way to small for me to start learning a new technique:

If you google for “overlay crochet” you find some really nice projects other crocheters made. Here are some examles:

This beauty is made by “Yarn Hacker”:

the same pattern in different colors by “crochetbug”:

and another one by crochet3love”:

Or look what I found the Blog of “crochetwithdee”:

As you can see… lots and lots of beautiful inspiration.

And yesterday I found a pattern I will start learning overlay crochet with. It´s by “CaroCreated Design”. I absolutely love her patterns anyway and I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this new pattern in her shop: “Overlay Mandala”. I decided that this is going to be the one… Perfect to start with…

I ordered it and only a couple of hours later it was in my Email. I started the first 4 Rows yesterday and will continue crocheting this evening. It´s so exciting to try something new. I really hope mine will turn out only half as beautiful as hers…

I will definitely let you know how it goes…

Have a nice day or evening (depending on where you live out there)

Happy Hooking everyone 🙂

You are so good at that…hope all is well and it’s so nice you have a blog now…so we can visit any time we want, but not disturb you

  2. I have the book Crochet Master Class, thought this was out of my league of skills, but now that I have seen other people making these I think I will just give it a try!! I love your blog, this is my first time reading it but I will be returning for sure!!

  3. Hi Daniela, i live in South Africa and someone mention your blog on facebook, this overlaying looks difficult but adventurous,we don’t always get these amazing books in South Africa. Is there a way to get hold of this pattern from SA? Sorry for my silly Question I am rather new at this way of communicating across the globe. x
