After some experimentation (aka. unraveling a few failed attempts), here’s my version of a crochet musical note! :) The pattern is relatively simple, but I included some pictures for clarity on the last steps. Gauge is not necessary, since the size of the musical note is determined by the weight of the yarn used. The thicker the yarn, the bigger the note:
Fingering weight yarn = 3 1/4″ long (size of the green note in the above picture)
Sport weight yarn = 3 1/2″ long (size of the blue and orange notes)
Worsted weight yarn = 3 3/4″ long (size of the pink note)
Abbreviations: chain (ch), single crochet (sc)
What You Need:
- about 7 yards of yarn (worsted, sport, or fingering weights)
- size F (3.75 mm) crochet hook
- Ch 3.
- Join with a slip stitch to the first chain. (forming a circle)
- 6 sc in the center. Join with a slip stitch to first sc. (6 sc)
- Ch 1, 2 sc in each stitch in the round. Join with a slip stitch to the starting chain (12 sc)
- Slip stitch in the first 4 stitches of the next round.
- Ch 15. (picture below)
Turn, slip stitch in the 3rd ch from hook.
Work slip stitches in the next 3 chains.
Slip stitch in the 4th ch from hook (skipping 3 chains).
Work slip stitches in the remaining 5 chains.
Work a slip stitch border around the circle portion of the note (working a slip stitch in the top loop of each stitch around the circle).
Tie off and weave in ends.
Turn it over, and–ta-da!–a crochet musical note!
