How to Make Christmas tree Yoyos 1/2
So, we have Yoyo crochet here like if look you at it when I completed it. It ends up with a string on top looking very much like a yo-yo. And what I have decided to do for home made decoration instead of using Christmas balls on my Christmas tree I've decided to make these round yo-yos and in order to make these round yo-yos, you can do the search on my account here for yo-yo crochet and that is yo-yo crochet. So, that is yo-yo crochet and what I’m going to eventually do here is I’m going to actually—these are the strings that are left over. I’m just going to weave it in here just to hide it. So, I just throw it back and then pull it forward through the holes. So, I’m going to hide that and I’m going to touch some fish line to the top.
Now here is an actual example that is actually done and this is yo-yo crochet. All I’ve done because I want it to be a little more Christmas than just a white. I have taken two pieces of thread and I’m using this for the top piece. So, I’m going look around the circle and look where it’s actually ending. So, what I’m going to do, this is about my bottom piece. So, what I’m just going to do is turn it sideways, put your needle in through the holes because if you look around the actual circles, see, you actually got a spot in between in there. It should be actually twelve of them because it is yo-yo crochet. So, I’m taking two pieces of the string just like so looking for the other side. So, the opposite side of this here and I’m just taking my needle through and I’m going to pull the two colors through.
And then in the next circle I’m going to pull it back behind. And then this next one, I’m going to pull it forward. So, basically I am weaving it using those round spaces that are in the actual outside of the yo-yos. I’ve actually done 24 of this from my little Christmas tree and it’s going to make sure leaving them off because I actually want to tie this when I get around until the two strings just tangle ever so loosely. The next one goes in behind and if you have done it right you’ll end up that the two strings are actually on the same side like so. So, I’m just going to pull it little more and I’m going to open it up because if I tie it when it’s all crunch up, it’s going to stay crunch up.
So, I’m just going to pull and cut it here and I’m going to cut the two strings from the actual ball of wool. What I’m going to do here just in the bottom, I’m just going to tie it, just a loose tie and just enough so that they won’t come out. I’m not going to pull it to tight. I just tie it into a knot and there you go. It is going to look like a very Christmas Eve with a little riff and this will be going on my Christmas tree just like so and you even have if you look at the other side. It looks perfect, right? So, I’m going to cut this thing off and put some fish line into it at the very top and so let it hang perfectly.
So, that this actually straight down. So, this is like a simulation Christmas balls and homemade crafts for your Christmas and this is yo-yo crochet.
