View Full Version : New bun cover thingie
January 3rd, 2005, 09:20 PM
This one is done with red #10 cotton thread instead of yarn. I used a teeny B hook, which is still bigger than the pattern called for. Also, I'm throwing in a bonus picture of my cat. :wacko:
Here is the pattern if anyone wants it: http://members.aol.com/cillcrochets/chignon.html

Very pretty bun cover and cute kitty. :)
I'm still pondering if I should try to make a bun cover me, but I really want a beaded one and I dunno if that wouldn't be too complicated for someone who hasn't crocheted in over ten years.

Oooh that's right! Bun covers! :lol: I've been thinking about making some for such a long time now. Madeleine, if I ever get to that, I'll make you a couple too. It's going to be so much fun to play with colors and beads :inlove:
I really like how yours turned out, Grey_Lady! Thanks so much for the link!
And I just *love* your sweetie pie - she's gorgeous!

I found that pattern a few days ago, too. And I did a thread one for myself. thought I added a couple of extra rows to make it bigger....I also did a yarn one with pink baby yarn for a neighborgirl to match her ballet outfit. They are so quick and pretty. Your's looks great!

And kitty is adorable!!:inlove:

I wish I could do this sort of thing. it looks so nice, and I bet buying one long enough for my hair would be hard. I just seem to knot wool and thats about it. :(
Awwwww. Pretty Kitty! Looks like my neighbours cat when I was little :) Doesn't s/he try to 'help' you with the wool.

Oh thanks for this link. I was just about to ask if anyone had a pattern for a ballet bun cover. My daughter has to have them for class and I want to make them. I am so thrilled to find this thread :inlove:

Oh very nice. I am going to have to brush up on my crochet skills and give it a try. I'd love a black one with some beads on it.

That is gorgeous! I've been looking for something similar, but I want a white one!

I'd happily pay for one of those - I don't have a clue how to crochet!

Nice handiwork, GreyLady! It looks awesome!
And what a purdy kitty!
