Crochet O'clock Tutorial




Well... I kind of disappeared from Blogland for a tad longer than usual...but I'm back with a little something to share with you all.
I had an extremely positive response to the crocheted clock I made last month. Many questions were asked in regards to how I made it, so I decided to put together this tutorial.
This is not a pattern as such, as I've really not invented anything new here. It's simply a step by step guide/tutorial of how I pieced my clock together.
I hope that it's a tutorial that will inspire you to make your own design of crocheted clock......I can't wait to see what you will come up with!

Let's talk materials
Clocks
Obviously the most important thing you will require for this clock....... is an actual clock.
I bought mine from our local craft store. Its an MDF circle, with the clock mechanism already built in. My clock measures approximately 33cm in diameter.
I know it can be a little tricky to find theses craft clocks, so there are a couple of alternatives.
1. You could JAZZ up an old clock. Perhaps one you already own or a second hand one from Ebay?
2. You could purchase a clock mechanism (they seem to be much easier to get hold of than a complete crafting clock) and cut a clock face out of cardboard. Once the cardboard is decorated with creative crocheted loveliness, you'll never be able to guess if it's MDF or cardboard.
These clock mechanism are available in many craft stores and are easily available from online stores (Ebay, Amazon).

Yarn
Once again I've chosen to work with Universal Cotton by Wolle Rodel. I love to use this yarn as it comes in many many different colours. It's lovely and thick and is extremely durable.

There are many similar cottons on the market and alternatively this clock would work well as a stash busting project, pretty much any dk yarn would do the job!

Other Bits and Bobs
The crocheted clock face is just a small part in creating a happy and jolly clock.  The bulk of its fun appearance comes from the decorations. I decorated my clock with little wooden numbers, ladybugs, buttons and crocheted flowers. Pretty much anything will work! It's really the perfect chance to get CRAZY CREATIVE!

So let's get down to business!!!!!

The first step in creating my clock, was to prepare the clock.
I decided to paint the clock with a base colour. I thought that this was a good idea as I didn't want the brown MDF to show through the gaps of the crochet. This is not something you have to do, just something to make the finished product (maybe) a little neater.
I painted my clock face with blue acrylic/poster paint as this was the dominant colour to my crochet face.


I then got started with the round crocheted face of the clock.
I've made two different crocheted clocks so I'll share both designs with you. Both are based around a simple and standard crocheted circle pattern. The only difference is that we are adding some colour changes mid round.
The colour changes are probably the trickiest part of this pattern. I'll show you quickly how I did my mid round colour changes.  Hopefully when you get to it in the tutorial, you'll know exactly what your doing.

How to do a mid row colour change

As you can see in the picture below. I've just finished my last blue stitch and I now want to change colour.


I'm going to go ahead and place my yarn over my hook,  as if I was going to continue to make another stitch.


I insert my hook into the next stitch. (The stitch where I want my new colour to begin.)


Instead of pulling the blue yarn back through the stitch,  I pull my new colour of yarn through.



I then hook the new colour yarn (pink) and I pull it through the loops on my hook, as if I were completing a regular hdc or dc.



I then flip my work over. Take the tail ends of the old colour yarn (blue) and the tail end of the new colour yarn (pink)


I tie the ends in a secure knot. I then go ahead and cut the old yarn (blue yarn) free from my work.


I then flip my work over and continue the tutorial with my new colour yarn.


I hope that makes sense. It is a little tricky to explain, so I hope the pictures help out a little!?

Ladybug Clock!

Now the pattern is going to depend very much on how big your clock is. Below is a guide to how I made mine. It would be simple enough to add more rows for a larger clock, or to not complete all of the rows for a smaller one.
I've written this in US terms.

A little tip.....I would recommend sewing in the ends as you go along :-)

Fasten off.

Sew in any remaining ends.

Once you have finished your crochet circle and sewn in the ends, your ready to attach it to your clock. 
I simply did this by removing the hands from my clock and placing my crocheted clock face on top of the crafting clock. Make sure your clock is the correct way up before you glue the crochet to it.


If you have made the "Bumble Bee Sunshine Clock" design then you may also want to glue the sun beams down flat, so that they do not obstruct the hands of the clock.


Now for the fun decorating part!!!!!

Adding flowers, numbers and other glorious goodies!

As mentioned in my Crochet O'clock post a few weeks ago, I used two different patterns for the  pretty decorative flowers. The first being the Crochet flowers pattern found on the Mollie Makes website. I did find this pattern a little fiddly at first.  Once I got my head around it, it was plain sailing and it really makes a beautiful flower.
The other flower pattern I used was by Lucy at Attic24. Her patterns are explained with lovely pictures and are extremely easy to follow, not to mention the finished flowers are soooo cute.


I added bright and colourful button to the middle of each of my flowers. I'll let you in on a secret...I didn't actually sew the buttons on. Instead I used the help of my trusty glue gun!
I threaded the yarn through the button;
Then tied the yarn in a double knot.


I sniffed off the tailing ends of yarn.

Finally I glued each of the buttons to the flowers. Normally I wouldn't glue buttons to a project. I figured as the clock isn't being made to be touched and played around with, then I could get away with it. The glue works as a strong enough fastener and is much quicker than sewing every button by hand.
I added wooden numbers to my clock, in which I painted different colours. You could do the same or alternatively use felt numbers or cardboard numbers....maybe even try crocheting the numbers?


I took my time positioning the flowers and bugs. Once I was satisfied with the positioning I glued them on with the glue gun.



I really enjoyed hiding the bugs under leafs and on the numbers. At first you do not notice them. When you look a little longer and closer you suddenly see the happy faces of the lady bugs smiling back up at you. I think that's fun!


When positioning your flowers and bugs. Be aware of the clock hands. My clock hands lay quite high above the crocheted face, so there is room to put flowers near/or underneath. Just be careful that your decorations do not obstruct the path of the hands, as the clock will not work properly.
As you can see in the picture below, I've left a wide margin free of decorations, so the hands can function properly.


Other than that, your decorative options for the clock are endless! Try being original and let you crafty creativeness take over. I hope some of you will give making a crocheted clock a go. I am extremely intrigued to see what you clever and talented people will come up with!


I hope you have fun!!! As always if you have any questions or spot problems just drop me a line and I'll do my best to get back to you!

      If everything is securely sewn and glued on I would suggest vacuuming it carefully with the tube attachment of the vacuum cleaner. Should do the trick! Matt xxx
