The Inspiration Behind This Project
I really enjoy making functional crochet designs, finding things to recycle around the home to incorporate in my patterns. This pattern was inspired by a failed attempt at making a dreamcatcher! I definitely gear towards smaller crochet makes. What normally starts life as a blanket usually turns into a bag so it doesn’t hit the WIP pile never to return!
As a household we will be trying to do our bit and reduce our waste more and more this year, giving me the perfect excuse to use up my cotton stash on market bags, washcloths and face scrubbies. Watch Crafting by Lucy for some new eco crochet patterns!

The Best Yarn for Crochet Home Dec
I’m a sucker for anything colorful so I love working with cotton yarn, it's definitely my favorite. My go to hook size is a 4mm, although I have been experimenting with tiny 2mm hooks recently for some very intricate cotton patterns.
Making this mirror was my first experience of using Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton and I can honestly say it's my new go to cotton! It has such a luxury feel to it, giving your projects that extra special finish.

Skills You'll Practice
This is an advanced-beginner level pattern using three simple crochet stitches. This is the perfect beginners project if you are looking to step out of your comfort zone and try a different style of crochet incorporating other objects.
This pattern could also be used as a decorative photo frame to brighten up a room in your choice of colors, or simply add a bit of texture to your walls. If you are already confident with yarn color changes you may like to create a striped version of this mirror and adorn it with pom poms rather than tassels, the possibilities are endless!

Overall Pattern Notes:
• This crochet mirror is worked up in 2 parts, front and back. See Mirror Image 3 below.
• Begin by working the BACK section of your Mirror. The final stitch count of the last round in your back section will determine your stitch count around the front ring of your mirror to ensure the work can be seamed together neatly with no excess gathering.
• The front section of your work is then attached to the back section with the mirror placed in between. The two sections of your work will be sewn together.
• Your back section should measure slightly smaller than the overall size of your mirror. This is to allow a tight tension once seamed together to ensure the mirror hangs correctly.
• The D Ring is stitched into the Right Side of the back section of your mirror for hanging. See Mirror Image 4 below.
• Tassels are an optional adornment for your mirror.

JOINING FRONT & BACK
See Mirror Image 12
Line up your front and back section of your work and place your mirror in the centre. Ensure the D Ring on the back of your work is on the outside to enable you to hang the mirror.
Take a length of your Yarn A and your needles and begin sewing your work together around the edge ensuring you are working in the Back Loops Only for both the front and the back of your work.
See Mirror Image 13 & 14
Once you have sewn your two sides together and your mirror is secure fasten off your yarn and sew in any loose ends.
Begin by cutting 8 x lengths of Yarn A measuring approx 76cm (or your desired length) Yarn A will be the longest hanging tassel.
See Mirror Image 15
Gather your 8 lengths and fold them in half. Use a small piece of Yarn A to tie a knot in the top of your tassel to secure the 8 lengths together.
See Mirror Image 16
Repeat twice more until you have 3 tassels the same length in Yarn A.
Find the starting ch2 section of your circle and attach each tassel to your 3 starting chains using a secure knot. 1 tassel per ch st.

Attach the Yarn B tassels to the dc sts above where you have just attached your Yarn A tassels so they hang over Yarn A – See Image 19

Sew in any loose ends ensure they are not visable.
Your tassels should hang at the side of your mirror with the D Ring on the reverse in the top central position for hanging your mirror.
