My brother-in-law and his wife recently purchased their first home, so for a special house-warming gift I handmade them some napkin rings.
The entire design concept for these rings is remeniscent of their nuptials – colors of navy and green, accented with a tree and nature motif. I figured, even if our generation doesn’t use linen napkins very often, its still nice to have them should the ocassion ever arise.
Things You’ll Need:
8 (or more) Napkins
8 (or more) Toggles
Size J/10 6MM Crochet Hook
*I made this pattern up myself, so feel free to vary it as you see fit
Chain 6 (ch. 6)
Row 1: single crochet in back loop 6 times (aka: 6 sc bl)
Row 2: Skip 1, double crochet in back loop 5 times (aka: sk 1 dc 5 in bl)
Row 3: Repeat Row 1 and Row 2 another 6 times
End with 1 more single crochet line (aka: sc across)
Single crochet 2 in back loops, then chain 5, skip 4 loops, and single crochet in last two back loops.
(aka: 2 sc in bl, ch. 5, sk 4, 2 sc in bl)
*This creates the button hole for your toggle
Finish off by single crocheting around the entire napkin ring, for a nice uniform finish. (aka: sc around piece)
Using your crochet hook, ‘sew’ on your toggles.
You should end up with a napkin ring that has its own natural curve for easily wrapping around your linens!
These are super easy and the twine makes them rustic and durable.
You could easily have a set to fit every season!
