Desert Island Crochet Pattern


It's freezing right now and I haven't seen the sun in weeks! Since I won't be taking a holiday any time soon, why not crochet a miniature holiday island for my home? Actually, this was born from a commission I made a few months back, and I found the idea so cute I decided to make another and share the pattern. So if you'd like a few more Palm trees around your house, keep on reading! :)


N.B: Writing my patterns can be quite time consuming and I do my best to make sure they are clear, coherent and easy to follow. Since I provide them for free, I would appreciate it if you could please follow me on Instagram @slipstitch_hollow or on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/slipstitchhollow.

Round 10: sc, hdc, dc, hdc, sc sc. Repeat 5 times, slipstitch to the first sc to join.


Assembly!


Assembly is relatively easy; I simply used my hook and a whip stitch to sew everything together. Start with the leaves, sewing them onto the trunk. Then, stuff a small amount of polyfil stuffing into the trunk, and sew that to the sand. Then, sew the sand to the water.


Aaaaand you're done! Now you'll have a piece of paradise everywhere you go! :) I hope you enjoyed this pattern and please do same your work if you make one! I'd love to see! :)
