Dreamcatchers are said to act as dream filters, allowing only good dreams to reach the sleeper! We have put together an easy crochet dreamcatcher and we want you to put it to test! You can use an embroidery hoop and any color yarn (I use white in my example). The more colors you use, the more colorful it gets.
You can pair this dreamcatcher with as many decorative items you or your little ones can dream of. Happy dreams!
What you need
First take aside your hoop; we will be needing only the inner hoop. Using white yarn and 4.5mm (US. 7) hook, sc around the hoop, ss, to the first sc, to join. Ch 60 and ss, to joining st, to create the hanger. Fasten off.
Using white and 4.00 mm hook (US G/6) Start with a magic ring or ch 4 and ss, to first ch to form a ring. Rnd 1: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), 11 dc into magic loop/ or ch 4 ring. Slip into 3rd chain of beginning ch 3. (12 sts).
Rnd 2: Ch 5 (counts as dc, ch 2). (Dc, ch 2) in each stitch around. Slip into 3rd chain of beginning ch 5. (12 dc and 12 loops)
Rnd 3: Slip into ch 2 space. *(Dc, ch 2) twice into ch 2 space. Dc, ch 2 in next ch 2 space. Repeat from * around. Slip into first dc. Bind off. (18 dc and 18 loops)
Rnd 4: Sl st in ch-1 sp, ch 1, sc in same sp, ch 6, [sc in next ch-1 sp, ch 6] around; join with sl st to first sc. (18 sc and 18 ch-6 sps)
Rnd 5: Sl st in ch-1 sp, ch 1, sc in same sp, ch 7, [sc in next ch-1 sp, ch 7] around; join with sl st to first sc. (18 sc and 18 ch-6 sps)
If your hoop is smaller just work fewer Rounds. If it is larger repeat Round 5, but increase the number of working chains in each Round. For example Round 6 would be: [sc in next ch-1 sp, ch 8] around.
Using your tapestry needle sew the doily on the hoop. Alternatively use some white thread and tie the edges of the doily to the hoop with thread.
Gather all your decorative items, lace ribbon etc. and start tying to the bottom of your dreamcatcher. Using yarn make a long chain and tie to the bottom of your dreamcatcher. If desired add beads, or feathers.
That’s it! Enjoy your dreamcatcher!

Crocheting came into my life out of nowhere. I can still remember myself sitting on a couch, 3 years ago, trying to make the first chain stitches of a scarf project. The process was not easy. I sat for hours and hours until my scarf was finally ready. The outcome? One scarf and a new addiction that changed my life.
I have also taken up knitting! Scarves, hats and oh so many lovely projects! I am writing and designing my patterns, as well as photographing each item carefully in order to depict its colors and textures!
I also have a passion for blogging. You can follow my adventures and patterns on my blog http://www.littlethingsblogged.com/.
