More About the Tiara Trim

In my last post, I promised that I would talk about some other uses for the Tiara Trim I designed for Interweave Crochet's Summer Issue. Before I shipped off the samples, I took some photos of the trim being worn in different ways. These photos are also a good indication of the scale of the trim when crocheted using different weights of yarn.

A chunky weight yarn, makes trim that is wide enough to make an lovely scarf. This weight of yarn also really makes a feature of the bobbles and woven top edge.

I also love the idea of using this this width of trim to make a belt or to top the waistband of a skirt. I am thinking of making a skirt with pleats that begin in the center of the 2 chain loops. It would also be pretty over a pencil skirt.

Fingering Weight Yarn Makes a Delicate Necklace

Sport Weight Yarn Makes a Bold Collar or Neckline Trim 

This isn't the last you have seen of this trim. Once I find the right metallic yarn, I will show you  a completely different use for this pattern!
