Sometimes by moving chairs or other small furniture we can damage the floors…or we think that we can damage the floors. I often catch myself on the thoughts that I should buy soft stickers for the chairs or tables but I always forget it! Well, good for us, guys, the problem can be easily solved by crochet (not forgetting things but damaging the floors)!
Actually in my case it’s an easel that is the problem, not the chairs. Even if I ever remembered to buy the stickers, it would not really help because of its shape!
So dear painters, attention, today I want to present the feet for your easel to protect your floors!
You will need:
- 6 mm crochet hook
- beige yarn matching the hook
- thinner black yarn
- ch – chain
- st – stitch
- sl st – slip stitch
- sc – single crochet
- at the end of every round total number of stitches is shown in brackets
Main part (make three):
Round 1: sc in the second ch, sc in next 5 ch, 1 turning ch (6)
Round 2: sc in all 6 st, 1 turning ch (6)
Round 3: now we crochet around the whole piece in front loop only. sc in next 6 st, sc in the side of every row, sc in next 6 st, sc in the other side of every row (18)
Round 4-7: sc in all 18 st (18), sl st in the back loop of the next st, fasten off and cut the yarn. Weave in the end.
You will need three of them, so crochet two more feet the same way.
Toes (make 8):
Round 1: 6 sc in Magic ring (6)
Round 2: sc in next 6 st (6), sl st in the back loop of the next st, fasten off and cut the yarn. Weave in the end.
In total we need 8 toes as we put them only on the front two feet, 4 on each.
Now we make claws. For that just insert the hook in the magic ring, pull the black yarn through the toe, cut it, make a knot and hide it inside (the process is shown on the picture set below).
After making the claws of all 8 toes we can sew them on two of three feet.
This is the result:
Now the floors are safe and your easel has cute feet! I wish you inspiration a lot of new ideas for painting and crocheting!
PS: you can use the pattern for making soft protecting feet for chairs or tables, just adjust the size. If you don’t know why, just send me the feet size of the chairs you have and we will adapt the pattern together.
