in a dark
The moon is magical and fascinating. Not only because of it´s mysterious changing form, it´s influence is also palpable. It determains the seas, as well as us. It shines without warming. It is not always visible and always there ●☽○☾
NEW MOON - time to set intentions
It´s the ideal time to dream of new goals. To journal and to write.
INCREASING MOON - time of interaction
It is the ideal time to connect, communicate and get things done.
FULL MOON - time for gratitude
Time to appreciate what you are blessed with. You have to see clearly what you have achieved.
DECREASING MOON - time of clarity
Time to give space so that you can develop freely. To separate oneself from physical and mental things. Finish old projects.
Do you also like this magical dreamy theme? Then this delicate BOHO moon is just right for you. It is based on my BOHO rainbow pendant. Whether as a gift or as a personal gift for you ♡
You can start immediately. It is crocheted quickly and easily. . .
Difficulty level: easy
Effort: about half an hour
Crochet yarn: about 20 grams of 100% cotton
String or ribbon to hang up
Crochet hook: No. 3
M stich (right around the strand)
X single crochet
III triple stitch (increase)
First prepare a wool strip. It is about 42 cm long and 0.5 cm thick.
This is wrapped with wire about 32 cm. About 5 cm stay hanging loosely on both sides. The wire makes it easy to bend a moon shape.
That's how it works:
You start crocheting the outside of the moon. Crochet a single crochet around the wire. The amount of stitches may vary, depending on how thick your wool is. I had used a pretty thin one. Just hang on to crochet about 20 cm.
1. R: X ○, 90 X = 90 M
In the next step, form a moon and turn it over, just as if you would start a new round.
Start with the inside of the moon. Continue to crochet around the wire / wool strip. But to crochet a corner the last stitch of the previous row is tripled III. Then crochet the next 4 stitches into the previous round.
Then continue to crochet separately and crochet about 45 stitches until you reach the other tip of the moon. 4 single crochet in the previous round and the last triple again III.
2. R: III, 4X in M the previous round, 45X, 4X in M the previous round, III = 59 M
Finally, cut the thread and sew generously. Cut the tuft, which hangs out at the upper tip to the desired length and carefully brush through with a comb. Attach a cord / strap as you like and you´re done with BOHO moon ♡
Just hang it up where it makes your heart happy ♡
