Goddess Spring Decor

Spring will be coming soon so let’s get ready with our next goddess of all seasons decor. This is a great recycling project and since the “Decor” requires very little thread, it is a good way to use up some of your small bits and pieces of thread or yarn. Size 10 thread Size 0 steel hook Ch 9, join to form a ring Row 1: (ch 1, 2 sc, 1 hdc, 8 dc, 3 tr, 8 dc, 1 hdc, 2 sc) in ring Row 2: ch 16, sl st in 9th ch from hook to form a ring. ** Repeat rows 1 & 2 31 times, repeat row 1 once. Finish off and hide ends. You can drape these any way you want to. Add some beads or buttons to make your Goddess unique. We have one more pattern left in this series, Summer.

Goddess Winter Decor

Winter has certainly arrived and of course we need to dress our lovely crochet Goddess appropriately. I used Coats and Clarks metallic thread, but you can use just about any type of cotton thread. For a more dramatic effect,try using 1 strand of DMC metallic floss and 1 strand of size 10 thread held together. Size 10 thread Size 0 steel hook Row 1: ch 5 join to form a ring Row 2: (ch 14 sc in ring) 7 times Row 3: ch 15, sl st in 5th ch from hook to form a ring. **Repeat rows 2 & 3 19 times, repeat row 2 once. Finish off and hide ends.

Goddess for all Seasons

Back by popular demand: This is a sample of how I come up with ideas. My son was eating the chips out of this very clever container and when I looked at it I thought immediately that it resembled the figure of a goddess so I made her up. You can get the container from the chips isle at your local grocery store.

Materials: 1 go snack chip empty container (remove label rinse and let dry) Few rocks, marbles small enough to fit inside container (you don’t need many just enough to weight the bottom to keep it from flipping over) Batting, polyester stuffing or cotton balls 3 oz worsted weight yarn Size H hook Marker (MARK BEGINNING OF ALL ROWS) Bottom: Row 1: ch 2, 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook Row 2: 2 sc in each sc (12 sc) Row 3: * 1 sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc repeat from * around (18 sc) Row 4: *1 sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc repeat from * around (24 sc) Row 5: *1 sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc repeat from * around (30 sc) Row 6: sl st into 1st sc, ch 1 sc in back loop only around Rows 7 to 20: work even (or sc in each sc) slip crocheted piece onto container. Row 21: * sc in next 8 sc, decrease repeat from * around (27 sc) Row 22: * sc in next 7 sc, decrease repeat from * around (24 sc) Rows 23 & 24: work even Row 25: * increase in next sc, sc in next 7 sc repeat from * to end (27 sc) Rows 26, 27 & 28: work even Row 29: * increase in next sc, sc in next 8 sc repeat from * to end (27 sc) Row 30 & 31: work even ***put your rocks, marbles or whatever you are using for bottom weight inside the container, put the lid on make sure it snaps tight** Breast area: *continue to mark beginning of each round* Row 1: sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc in each of the next 4 sc, sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in each of the next 4 sc, sc in remaining 14 sc (38 sc) Row 2: sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 6 sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 6 sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in remaining 14 sc (42 sc) Row 3: work even Row 4: sc in next 30 sc, decrease, sc in next 2 sc, decrease, sc in next 2 sc, decrease, sc in last 2 sc (39 sc) Row 5: work even Row 6: ch 5, skip next 4 sc, sc in next sc (arm hole made) decrease, sc in next 7 sc, decrease, sc in next 3 sc, decrease, sc in next 7 sc, decrease, sc in next sc, ch 5, skip 4 sc, sc in next 4 sc. Row 7: sc in next 5 ch, sc in next sc, decrease, sc in next 5 sc, decrease, sc in next 3 sc, decrease, sc in next 5 sc, decrease, sc in next sc, sc in next 5 chs, sc in next 2 sc, decrease. (32 sc) Stuff and shape breast area. Row 8: decrease, sc in next 4 sc, decrease, sc in next 3 sc, decrease, sc in next sc, decrease, sc in next 3 sc, decrease, sc in next 4 sc, decrease, sc in last 5 sc. (26 sc) If necessary stuff and re shape breast area. Row 9: sc in next 7 sc, decrease, sc in next 3 sc, decrease, sc in last 12 sc ( 24 sc) Row 10: *sc in next 4 sc, decrease repeat from * around (20 sc) Row 11: work even Row 12: * sc in next 3 sc, decrease repeat from * around (16 sc) Row 13: * sc in next 2 sc, decrease repeat from * around (12 sc) Rows 14, 15 & 16: work even Stuff and shape for shoulders Row 17: 2 sc in each sc around (24 sc) Rows 18 to 22: work even Row 23: * sc in next 4 sc, decrease repeat from * around (20 sc) Row 24: *sc in next 3 sc, decrease repeat from * around (16 sc) Row 25: *sc in next 2 sc, decrease repeat from * around (12 sc) stuff neck and head Row 26: *sc in next sc, decrease repeat from * around (8 sc) stuff and shape if necessary Row 27: decrease around (4 sc) finish off hide ends Arms: attach to opening made by row 6, sc around (11 sc) Rows 2 to 25: work even (make sure to use marker) Row 26: decrease, sc in next 2 sc, decrease, sc in next 2 sc, decrease, sc in last sc (8 sc) Rows 27 to 31: work even Row 32: decrease, sc in next 3 sc, decrease, sc in last sc (6 sc) Rows 33 to 34: work even end off Repeat for other arm, slip stitch ends together as shown in picture. I think Fall is starting to show up for most of us and that means we need to get our Goddess decorated for this season. I used a multi color thread but please use what ever color you would like to. It is crocheted in one continuous strand that you can make longer or shorter. I wrapped it around starting from the bottom and worked my way up. The thread seems to cling to the yarn making it easy to just drape it any way you want to.
