Solid Shell Crochet Jewelry Frame

Lion Brand® LB Collection® Cotton Bamboo


16 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


Yarn amount is sufficient to knit one small and one large frame.

Ch 20 (32).
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook, *sk next 2 ch, 5 dc in next ch (shell made), sk next 2 ch, sc in next ch; rep from * across – 3 (5) shells at the end of this row.
Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as first dc here and throughout), turn, 2 dc in first sc, sk next 2 dc, sc in next dc, sk next 2 dc, *5 dc in next sc, sk next 2 dc, sc in next dc, sk next 2 dc; rep from * across to last sc, 3 dc in last sc.
Row 3: Ch 1, turn, sc in first dc, *sk next 2 dc, 5 dc in next sc, sk next 2 dc, sc in next dc; repeat from * across.
Rep Rows 2 and 3 until piece measures 7 in. (10 in.) (18 cm (25.5 cm) from beg. Fasten off.

Weave in ends.
Lay fabric piece onto a flat surface with WS facing up. Lay batting, then card stock centered onto fabric. Apply a strip of double sided tape along top edge of card stock. Fold fabric over tape and, working from center out, press to secure. Rep on lower edge of card stock.
Rep for sides, trimming fabric at corners to keep it flat. Turn cardstock over and arrange crocheted piece neatly on top. Use stapler to secure your work in place, as close to the edge as possible so staples won’t show from the front! Work in the same way you did as when taping the fabric. Start at the top center and work from center out, followed by the bottom and then sides.
Slide cardstock into frame.
Slide the frame backing into place.

Solid Shell Crochet Jewelry Frame Reviewed by Loel Kim on 2015-07-31 *****
I made a larger version of this in a frame I bought on sale at Michael's for $10. Looks very cool and is working out well. great display. Would make a lovely gift.

See my project page on ravelry for details of how I made this.
