Tiara Trim For Interweave Crochet

(Photo By http://www.harperpoint.com/)

The Summer 2012 issue of Interweave Crochet just came out, and I am pleased to reveal the Tiara Trim pattern I designed. It was very exciting to me, when Interweave put out their call for submissions and requested trim designs. I loved that I could just focus on creating a pretty edging without deciding what it was to become. They hadn't decided at the time what they would put the trim on, so it was wonderful to finally see the photos with it transformed into table decor!

I was asked to make a yard of trim in 3 different weights of yarn, which is a nice way to show its versatility. I also designed 2 different versions, as you can see in the photo below. The beige trim has small bobbles in between the large bobbles, and the blue and green trims each have chain loops in between. I couldn't decide which I liked better, so I was glad that they asked me to do both.

My original submission of the trim included 3 weights of thread/ yarn, and the strip that was woven through was the same color as the main part of the trim. Below are the 3 versions, incase you would like to see how it looks as a single color trim.

Sport Weight Yarn
#10 Crochet Cotton
#5 Pearl Cotton

Marcy Smith, the editor of Interweave Crochet, did a useful blog post detailing the fabrics and sewing patterns used to complement the trims featured in this issue. 


Stay tuned, because in future blog posts I will be talking about different ways to use this trim pattern!
