Crochet pattern by Hilaria Fina
Here you have a free pattern to make a cute scissor patch to be used as decoration for your house or clothes. If you prefer a printable version to go, you can download an inexpensive pdf pattern here.
What should you know before you start?
Scissors are worked in rows and rounds.
At the beginning of each pattern line, you’ll find “Rnd” or “ row “ + a number to indicate which “round” or “row” you are in.
At the end of each line you will find the number of stitches you should have at end of each line. It will be indicated with a dash, for example – 8 sts. If you doubt, count your stitches to make sure.
– … sts = the number of stitches you should have at the end of each round.
Stitches and techniques used
With the stitches explained in this page you can make this pattern. I suggest you try the stitches before you start making the piece, it will surely help you read the pattern and abbreviations more comfortably without having to browse back to these pages.
Wrap yarn around two fingers, leaving 7cm long tail. Insert hook right to left under the two rows and pick the strand up (the one that leads to the skein), pulling the yarn back under the two rows, YO and pull through the loop (do not count as first stitch). Keep working the following stitches into the ring. Remove the ring from your fingers and pull the tail end to tight the ring.
Chain (abbreviation ch)
YO and pull through loop on hook.
Slip stitch (abbreviation: sl st)
Insert hook in stitch, YO and pull through both loops on hook at once.
Single crochet (abbreviation: sc)
Insert hook in stitch, YO and pull through the stitch (2 loops on hook), YO and pull through both loops on hook at once.
Half double crochet (abbreviation: hdc)
YO, insert hook in stitch, YO and pull through the stitch (3 loops on hook), YO and pull through all 3 loops on hook at once.
Double Crochet (abbreviation: dc)
YO, insert hook in stitch, YO and pull through the stitch (3 loops on hook), [ YO and pull through 2 loops ] x 2.
Crocheting into the back bump of a chain
Usually you crochet in the right side of the chain. When you turn your chain, you’ll see a small ‘bump’ on the wrong side of each stitch. Insert your hook under this back bump.
If you’re looking for a relaxing project, this is what you want. These patterns are very repetitive. They use basic stitches and easy procedures.
