Notes

For my kitchen window.

Made 6 squares for each panel. Crocheted them together in a strip with right sides together through the back loops only. Then single crocheted once all the way around the strip starting and ending in one corner.

Then to create the loops to go around the curtain rod, I chained ten up from that corner, skipped 4 stitches and single crocheted one, chained ten, skipped 4, sc one all the way across the top edge To the other corner. Chain one turn, 14 sc in each loop of ten chains and in between them I single crocheted again down into the same place where I joined the chains of the previous row (to add a bit more strength).

I lightly steam pressed the strip to get it nice and flat before sewing the bottom edge to the curtain. Using the chains as a guide I whipstitched by hand to the fabric.

So happy with the way these turned out!
