Crochet com pauzinhos / Crochet with chopsticks.



A inspiração veio sob a forma de colheres de pau do outro lado do mundo (um dia faço uma!) e já andava aqui há algum tempo na cabeça. Tentei usar os restos da última poda do quintal mas já estavam muito fraquinhos e partiam-se com facilidade.

Encontrei este tutorial e com alguma paciência lá me consegui safar com uns pauzinhos que tinha por aqui espalhados. Faltam os toques finais mas o que interessa é que já o experimentei e funciona. A agulha assemelha-se muito a um tamanho 6-7.


The inspiration came from across the globe in the shape of handcarved spoons (one day I’ll make one too!) and it has been on my head for a while now. I tried to use some sticks from the last cleaning of the backyard however those sticks broke very easily.

I found this great tutorial online and with a little patience I managed to make a crochet hook using old chopsticks I had laying around. It still needs to be better sanded however what matters is that I’ve tried it and it works. The hook is very similar to a size 6-7.

  1. Wow, amazing! Could you also knit with chopsticks?
    And thank you so much for your lovely comments and not being angry about my failure to find time to meet up, I sincerely hope I will be able to go to Portugal soon again!
