Crocheted Rakhi: Free Crochet Pattern



This Raksha Bandhan I crocheted three rakhis for Dhruv for his three sisters one in Orissa, one in Uttar Pradesh and one in the United Status.  Dhruv was really cute about it all. He was confused by the rakhis at first but once I tied all three he really loved playing with the colourful threads. I dont know when he will get all his sisters in one place to tie the rakhis on his hand. But until then its Rakhi by proxy!

Here is a free pattern(U.K Terminology) for a crocheted rakhi:

Materials:

Three colours DK yarn just around 15 grams probably less. This is  a great stash busting project. A few scraps are all that are needed.
Yarn needle

Method:
Round 1:Using Colour 1,Make a magic ring and 6 dc into the ring (6sts) Bind off.
Round 2: Using Colour 2,chain 4, 2tr in next st, chain 2 repeat till last stitch,1tr in last stitch slip stitch to close loop. Bind off.

For the straps, using Colour 3, chain 25. Make two.
Attach to the 2 chain gap on either side.

Rakhi is ready for some loving sister to tie to her bhaiyya!
