What tableware collection would be complete without napkin rings?

They are so often missed when designing patterns for tableware collections. I think napkin rings are making something of a resurgence recently. For many years they have been undervalued in giving your table that ‘finished’ look when you are trying to make a good impression, or simply just like your table to look pretty! They are also a great stash buster!

Once I had decided to include napkin rings, the next challenge was which style to go for ….

I couldn’t decide and prototyped three different designs.

Problem was that once it was made I could not pick a favorite to include, so I thought I would spoil you and include all three patterns! You can decide which ones you prefer.

Lets get started ….

MATERIALS:

ABBREVIATIONS:

Ch—Chain
FSC – Foundation single crochet
PSC – paired single crochet
St(s)—Stitch(es)
Sk – skip
SS – slip stitch
Sp(s)—Space(s)
Rep—Repeat
*to*–Repeat the instructions written between the two *
FO – fasten off

SPECIAL STITCHES:

Foundation Single Crochet – FSC – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fG-LiTY_khs

Paired single Crochet – PSC – sc in first stitch of row only, *insert hook into same sp and yo pull through, insert hook into next space and yo pull through, yo pull through all three loops on hook.*

Option 1: the plain one

Note: this one is made flat and then the shorter sides sewn together at the end

Row 1 – chain 20, in second chain from hook sc, then Psc in each stitch across, ch1, turn.

Row 2 – sc in first st, Psc in each stitch across (19 stitches)

Rows 3-5 – ch1, turn, repeat row 2

Row 6 –  turn, ss across each stitch (19 ss)

Leave a long tail, sew short sides together and weave in ends.

Option 2: the striped one

Note: you can either follow option 1 changing color at the beginning of each row, or work it in the round so that you can carry your colors up at the back and not have so many ends to weave in! Surprisingly I worked in the round as I HATE those pesky ends!)

To work in the round:

Rnd 1 – Fsc 19, ss to first stitch to create the round shape.

Rnd 2-5 – change to desired color, ch1, Psc around

FO, weave in ends.

Option 3: The two-textured one

Note, it is easier to work this one flat and then sew the ends together.

In color A:

Row 1 – FSC 19, ch1, turn

Row 2 – sc in first st, Psc 18

In color B:

Row 3 – ch4 (counts as ch1 plus ch3), *sk1, ss into next st , ch3,* across , turn

Rows 4-5 – ch4, ss into first ch3, *chain 3, ss into next ch3* across

In color A:

Row 4 – 2sc in each ch3 space across and sc in last stitch (19 scs), ch1, turn

Row 5 – sc in first st, Psc in each stitch across.

FO leaving a long tail, sew sides together and weave in ends.

That’s all there is to it! Don’t forget to share your projects with us!
