How To Make A Crochet Dreamcatcher

How To Make A Crochet Dreamcatcher

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

Embroidery hoop 10 cm diameter
Worsted weight yarn (I used white)
4.00 mm & 4.5 mm (G/6 & 7 hook)
Tapestry needle
White thread
Decorative items (beads, fabric scraps, ribbon, lace, cords, yarn)



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)


Fasten off.

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.


Make up:

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!


This is a guest post by Tanya. Read her bio here:


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.


  1. love it–thanks so much for sharing

  2. Thanks for sharing this pattern. Just finished one. It looks nice.

  3. Thank you so much for this Tanya. I really enjoyed making this……have made about 30 for my sons wedding. Caro

  4. Martha Gautier says

    Just looking at it, if you are an experienced crocheter, you can figure out anything that seems out of place. It’s beautiful either way! I’m anxious to get started. Maybe even adding my own spin as others have. Thank you so much for sharing. Now I know how to start!!

  5. It’s really hard to get the ring to look okay with the single crochets around it. They keep shifting around by themselves and look all bunched up.

  6. A couple of errors in your pattern – Round 5 should say “18 sc and 18 ch-7 sps” at the end (you say “ch-6 sps”), and the paragraph after “Fasten Off” should say:

    “For example Round 6 would be: [sc in next ch-7 sp, ch 8] around.” (You say “ch-1 sp.”)

  7. Once I was visiting in Oregon and found Crocheted Dream Catchers. I asked the lady if she would teach me how to do it. She would Not. So I bought one and figured it out myself. Although these are not quite like I made, I wanted to thank Shellie for sharing this pattern. After my experience, I always vowed that I would share my patterns and teach who ever wanted to learn crochet. This weekend will be my first experience in teaching. Hoping that I can get my students to this level of crocheting and that they would be as happy with their projects as I am with mine. Thanks again.

    • Pamula, it is wonderful that you took the negative reply from the woman in Oregon and turned it positive by deciding to teach other’s the craft once you learned it. Kuddo’s to you for your inspiration and good heart! It is nice to find people who still have a good spirit and want to give back to others who have the desire to create.

  8. the pattern keeps saying to crochet in sc space when we don’t have one, we either have ch2, ch6 or ch space, so I’m assuming we sc in those spaces

    • yes i noticed the same thing.
      the pattern doesn’t turn out right if we just follow what you are saying

    • What you assume is correct. I adjusted like that as well and then it works out. There is no 1 sc space to work in. She means the chain spaces 🙂

  9. Very good and interesting.

  10. Great!!! Thanks to share!! I´m triying to do one by my side, but this is very helpfull!!!

  11. Very creative… I will have to try this… Great gift idea

  12. Cool, I might try my hand at this
