Suvastika Pattern in C2C

Suvastika

Suvastika is an ancient religious symbol originating from India.  It is one of the most sacred and auspicious symbols in Hinduism and dates back at least 11,000 years.

The name Suvastika comes from the Sanskrit (Devanagari: स्वस्तिक). Suvastika in Sanskrit means any lucky or auspicious object, and in particular a mark made on persons and things to denote auspiciousness, or any piece of luck or well-being.

The Hindus represent it as the Universe in our own spiral galaxy in the fore finger of Lord Vishnu. This carries most significance in establishing the creation of the Universe and the arms as ‘Kaal or time, a calendar that is seen to be more advanced than the lunar calendar where the seasons drift from calendar year to calendar year.

The Suvastika symbol is seen in, the Indus Valley civilization, which is now proven to be more than 8000 years old.

It is also an auspicious symbol in the two religions which arose from Hinduism – Buddhism and Jainism. The Suvastika was used in Tibet and China, And was also introduced to Indonesia by Hindu kings. Since Hindu civilization was widespread…..It was also used in  Vietnam, Cambodia ,the Mayan and Aztecs civilizations etc in the ancient world. 

Materials:

Nature’s cotton fromm Soft Feather yarn

white : 300gms

Orange : 300 gms

Hook: 3:00mm

Size:

22 inches by 17 inches (22″/17″)

Abbreviations:

ch – chain

ss – slip stitich

hdc – half double crochet

(dc – double crochet – if you wish to make a bigger piece use dcs in your C2C instead of half dcs….

Or

You can use a much thinner thread or yarn with a smaller hook)

C2C

1.Chain 5,

hdc in the 3rd chain from hook,

then one hdc in each of the next two chains

This is one block or cluster.

Turn over.

chain 5,

Repeat 1

then, ss in the 2 chain space of the first block,

2 ch; 3  hdc in the same chain space,

you have your second block….Turn over

Repeat as above

Things to Remember while doing a C2C

  1. Always keep count…that is very important….at every step make sure the number of steps tally to the counter of blcoks given in the pattern. Once you finish a row…recount the total number of blocks in each colour in that row and tally the total blocks. Proceed only when the tally is exact.
  2. Refrain from being distracted by watching TV, Internet etc.(just my suggestion, I learnt this the hard way..:-))
  3. Keep the graph and the written instructions in front of you at all times.
  4. I carry yarn only for upto 3 blocks….anything more than while using dc or hdc I find shows the carryign thread esp if it  is of a birght or  contrasting colour shows through.  In tapestry it is easy to carry the colours forward beocs the scs are short stitiches and does no tallow the carrying thread show.
  5. By making shuttles of each colour…I simply add  a new colour as and when the colour needs to be used after three blocks.  Below please go thorugh the link which wI use to keep the yarn’thread from tangling.

GRAPH:

As you can see in this graph, the picture has some pixels in the wrong places though I used Stitch-board to do this one. The dots haven’t come out right at all and the lower leg of the right had side of the Suvastika had a few pixels out of place. So use the graph only   to help you visualise the final project.

I graphed this one by hand….

Begin from the bottom right side corner……

To make a wall Hanging….
  1. Frame this
  2. Give this C2C a backing with a thick cloth, and fix a thin cord on the backing to hang it
  3.  Create a crochet edging on the top and bottom, broad enough to wrap around a 1 mm curtain rod/steel/wood/ aluminium rod-pipe etc (cut to size). Then use any edging pattern on the top and the bottom….fold it ….join the top of the edging to the top edge of the C2C on both ends. stick in the rods…if you hace you can enhace the edge of the rods with curtain stoppers…or make your own crochet curtain stoppers. tie a medium thick decorative string on two ends of the top rod and VOILA…you have a lovely wall hanging.

And there you are …A Beautiful Suvastika.…You can use it as a wall hanging in your Pooja Room. Or can roll it and keep it safely and use it just for festive occassions and Sathsangs. Imagine how you can enhance the devotional aura of your home when having a pooja, yagna, Sathsang etc by hanging these sacred symbols on the walls in the room you are holding such sacred functions…..

Krishna Ashtami – Krishna Pendant

Peacock Feather & Flute Pendant

How to make the Peacock Feather

11940181_465567560297291_1543824148_n

Materials Used:

Thread: Red Rose #8 in 3 colors and Red Rose Metallic Gold

Hook: .09mm and .075 mm

I used this link to make the peacock feather appliqué used in this pendant

http://livingthecraftlife.blogspot.ae/2014/02/peacock-feather-applique-free-pattern.html

In the last round I used a very thin golden machine embroidery thread. First I threaded in matt gold seed beads…..Use  hook #.075mm or less for this row.

chain one up , sc in same stitch; sc while adding the seed bead to that sc; sc; sc with bead…continue until you finish the last round.

At the crown of the peacock Appliqué …add a stone.

Flute:

11950754_465567506963963_1357422469_n

For the Flute you need to create wha tis called an cord in crochet. It is also known as tubular crochet where you crochet in the same manner but use beads as well…This is a very beautiful form of crochet. How ever, here, I have just used a plain gold thread to make the flute. And because of the minuteness of the work, I used a match stick to help me. It made crocheting a tube in such fine thread much easier.

Hint: Make sure that you put in a marker to show your starting point at the beginning of each round.

The link below will help in showing you how an cord is worked.

http://perchica.ru/post340632462/?upd

The above is the same method used for the flute….made below…..

206602701625561050TIOSOMGgc                                                                                           

apr05_c1    apr05_c2-2

 I started the tube with 5 chains in the first round; then 5 scs in every consecutive round until I reached the edge of the match stick.

11923017_465567613630619_1833117896_n 11938180_465567610297286_1448008512_n

When you reach the edge of the flute slowly reduce the number of stitches in the round. In a flute …the end form where you blow is flat. To create this sc dec (single crochet decrease) is done.

Single crochet Decrease

Begin the round with 4 scs……then skip the next  sc; ss.

chain up; sc into next  4 stitches…that is repeat the previous round here.

Chain up; 3 scs inot next 3 stitches; skip the fourth stitch;ss

Repeat the previous round again.

Chain up; 2 scs into the next 2 stitches; skip the third stitch; ss

Repeat the previous round twice.

Now you have a tapered and flat end on one side of the flute.

Once the work on the flute is over…. use a thin flexible crochet wire or any jewellery metallic wire to add embellishments. You can also sew on beads and other decorations depending on your artistic taste..;-)

I used the thin wire behind the peacock feather and threaded it in and out of the 5th row to give the feather a stiffness and I twisted the same wire without cutting it to create a loop at the top. I, then crocheted scs over the wire to cover it. This created a loop through which I can run a chain to hang the pendant from.

The flute was sewn on after work on the feather was completed. For added firmness I used another piece of the  wire from behind the pendant  to secure the flute on.

And That’s that….a lovely locket to wear for a special occasion!!!

Krishna Ashtami Crochet/Baby Feet Motif

Krishna Paadha(Krishna’s Feet)

Crochet Chronicles

I have been asked by many who read my blog to make a Krishna doll and post the pattern..I am still working on that one….so for the time being I made a few other things that one can crochet for Krishnaashtami.

The Lotus Feet of Lord Krishna is part of the bhakthi (worship) of Krishna. It is said that the path that as he walked he left a footprint of fragrant red foot prints….it is also said that he loved butter and would often raid the kitchen where this was stored.

Being but a child, he would leave a mess behind and that his mother Yeshodamayi would catch ihm following the trail of butter stained foot prints that he left behind…:-)

On Lord Krishna’s Birthday which we call Janmaashtami……All Hindu households celebrate and one of the ways to decorate the house is to draw baby footprints(with rice flour) from your entrance door or compound gate to your pooja room (place where you pray, Hindu households usually have a separate room for this…here the altar is decorated with flowers, fruits and we make all kinds of delicacies which Krishna loved). This is to show that Krishna on his birthday has visited your home and blessed it. It is a wonderful idea and as  children, while my Mother and Aunts drew the baby feet…we lit earthen lamps along the footprint path….

This is what I have tried to recreate using crochet as my mode of expression.

That is the main part of the foot done.

Toes

The first toe, also known as the hallux (“big toe” or “great toe”), the innermost toe
The second toe, or “long toe”
The third toe, or “middle toe”
The fourth toe, or “ring toe”
The fifth toe, “little toe”, “pinky toe”, or “baby toe”, the outermost toe.


We will start working from the little toe to the Big toe..

Little Toe or the Baby Toe or the Pinky Toe:

When you make the slip knot….make it loose…giving enough space in there to allow way for your hook.
