Para Sol: Complete!

IMG_0533.JPG

The parasol is complete! I had to buy a new umbrella frame, because the one I originally bought was too small. Then I had to paint the new frame’s handle and tip… because they were blue.

I added some lovely ribbons and bows, because why not?

And a classy tag, because the new umbrella frame had a luggage tag thing in the handle (it’s originally a gold umbrella, $5 at Goodwill):

And another ribbon as the tie:

Pretty umbrella:

I finished it last night, which just goes to show you: I can only finish something when I have a deadline!

Anyway, look for it at the Clark County Fair and Rodeo, April 7-10!

  1. That is beautiful! Did you have a pattern or did you design it yourself too? What yarn/thread did you use? I have a sewing pattern for an umbrella but have never thought to try one out of knit/crochet. You should have gotten all blues!

  2. Thanks! It was about 9 months in the making.

    The design is by Ira Rott. It’s the “Lace Crochet Parasol” (the beige one).

    I used #10 crochet cotton (I think Aunt Lydia?). Can’t remember the hook size, but I think it was a 5 (US)/1.9mm. It’s the largest of my steel hooks, basically.
