What you need to complete this fun crocheted edged embroidery hoop:

Yarn – I am using Caron Simply Soft in Soft Pink
4.25 mm Crochet Hook
Embroidery Hoop – Can be any size. I am using a 4 inch hoop in these pictures.
Scissors
Embroidery/darning needle

How to Crochet around and Embroidery Hoop - BusyBeingJennifer.com1. Create a slip knot on your crochet hook and slip stitch onto the hoop.

2. Double Crochet (DC) into the hoop. It sounds trickier than it is, but to accomplish this, put your hook into the hoop, hook the yarn through (back to front). You will now have two strands of yarn on your hook. Yarn over the hook and pull through both strands of yarn. You’ve completed your first DC!

3. DC all around the hoop until the whole thing is covered. Make sure to “smoosh the yarn” together to cover the hoop completely.

4. Once you’ve reached the end of the hoop, turn your hoop around, Chain (CH) 3 and then DC into every other DC in the row below.

5. Once you have DC all around the hoop, CH 3 and join the last DC to the first.  CH3 with a slip stitch.

6. To create the scallops skip 1 stitch then DC 6 in same stitch. Then skip 1 stitch, slip stitch, skip 1 stitch and DC 6. Repeat around.

7. When you get to your last couple of scallops, you’ll want to double check the number of stitches left. You might need to “adjust” a little to finish off the scallops evenly. Your last scallop should finish in the 2 chain stitch going across the gap of the embroidery hoops. Use the Embroidery needle to hide the ends. And you’re done!

    I have some old, very ugly plastic embroidery hoops that are useable but not pretty, this could be just the solution. Thanks pinning.

  12. These are so cute! They remind me of wreaths my Nana used to make with old plastic coffee can lids that she’d cut out. Super cute! Love them and can’t wait to make some for our home.
