glissando {ɡlisˈsando, plural: glissandi, abbreviated gliss}: A musical term referring to either a continuous sliding one pitch to another (a “true” glissando), or an incidental scale played while moving from one melodic note to another. Italian, from French glissant, present participle of glisser, ‘to slip, slide.’

It’s the sound many people think of when they think of a harp. “Perpetual Gliss” is a small soft-sculpture crocheted harp that can be used to decorate any area. Due to the fragile nature of an open harp frame, it’s more appropriate as a decoration than as a toy. Make it for yourself or for your favorite musician. Note: Does not actually play music.

Skills: Crochet; seaming.

Notions: Stuffing; thin, flexible plastic or plastic canvas: 1 sheet; plastic drinking straws (1 for small, 4 for medium, 8 for large); nylon thread or fishing line; yarn needle for weaving in ends; removable marker.

Notes: Gauge is not critical. For different size harps, use any yarn and appropriate hook.
