Fall Colors

 Earth-tone Crochet Vase

The surrounding is ardent, in every corner is the warm and inviting hues of burnt orange, Indian red, copper and yellow. I love Fall!

And as such, I created this sculpted vase of earth tone. Yes, I love earthly colors,so I carefully chose yarn with rustic look, and I got the perfect choice of Impeccable yarn-Tierra, available at Michael's
I mixed it with Red Heart super saver yarn-dark chocolate. I crocheted two strands together and the result, uber awesome! Very stiff, almost like a ceramic.

This is pure and tight SC all the way, with the help of floral wire, it surely is very stiff, not collapsing.  I included a video to help you start with the wire 

If you will do this project, you will need floral wire 22 gauge. It is also best to make your 2 skeins of yarn into one cake of yarn.

The pattern
This starts with a normal circle:                             
R1:  MR, CH1, 7 SC into ring, slst (8 sts.)
R2: Double each stitch, sl st (16 sts)
R3: INC. after 1 SC ( your CH1 after sl st is 1 SC then put 2
      SC in the next) all the way around, sl st.
R4: INC. after 2 SC, all the eay around, sl st.
R5: INC. after 3 SC, all the way around, sl st.
R6: INC. after 4 SC, all the eay around, sl st.
R7: INC. after 5 SC, all the way around, sl st.
R8-R20: SC all the way around, sl st.               (maintain  your tension
    and gauge)
R21: SC2tog after 6 SC, repeat all the way around, SC in the
    last stitch, al st.
R22: SC2tog after 4 SC, all the way around, sl st.
R23- R26 SC all the way around, sl st and Fasten Off (FO).

Okay, so now you have a vase, short vase, next time you go to the craft store, get some Fall themed decor to put into your vase, and voila, you have a desk decor!

Now, you don't have to worry what to give to your friends, you have one perfect gift idea, very easy to make and materials are not that expensive.
