CURTAIN TIE BACKS

THIS IS MY ORIGINAL PATTERN

This is a great scrap yarn project.
 
MATERIALS:  Worsted weight yarn, any two colors or two strands of one color, as you use two strands held together throughout.
Size K hook.
 
Row 1: Chain 54. Double crochet in fourth chain from hook - chain 3 counts as first DC now and throughout.  DC in each chain to the end.  50 DC.  Chain 3, turn.
Row 2:  DC in second stitch, and each stitch to end.  Chain 1.  Holding ends together, SC in end of each row, 4 sc made.  Fasten off.  This crochets the two ends together to form the loop.
 
SUGGESTIONS:  These look nicer with three rows of DC. You can also add a decorative edging if desired.  I just needed something quick and easy for mama's house while I'm trying to get it sold, and the agent said having the curtains tied back would give the house an open, airy feeling.  Looks didn't matter a lot, just function and quickness!  However with a third row of DC and an edging, these are really quite cute.
