Crochet O'Clock



If you're as crazy about crochet as we are, then this project is the one one for you!
A crocheted clock!
Perfect for a custom gift, as the design can be easily altered to suit your needs.
This clock would be a fun and sunny addition to your home and would look great hanging in your little rascals bedroom, playroom or nursery.

Materials

  • MDF Craft Clock
  • Yarn
  • Crochet hooks
  • Acrylic Paint (optional)
  • Paint Brush
  • Glue Gun
  • Crafting Glue
  • Wooden Numbers, Buttons, beads and other trinkets to decorate your clock

Yarn & Hook

We chose to use creative cotton for this project in a variety of colours along with a 4mm crochet hook.
There are many similar cottons on the market and alternatively this clock would work well as a stash busting project. Pretty much any worsted weight yarn would do the job!

Buying A Crafting Clock

Having a crafting clock is essential for this project. We bought ours from our local craft store. It's an MDF circle, with the clock mechanism already built in and measures approximately 33cm in diameter.
It can be a little tricky to find a crafting clock, so there are a couple of alternatives:

  • You could recycle an old clock. Perhaps one you already own or a second hand one from Ebay or a charity shop?
  • You could purchase a clock mechanism, as they seem to be much easier to get hold of than a complete crafting clock.
    Once you have the mechanism, a clock face cut out of cardboard would do the trick. These clock mechanism are available in many craft stores and are easily available from online stores.

Other Bits and Bobs

  • We used an acrylic paint to paint our clock face, so that the brown wood of our crafting clock didn't show through the stitches of our crochet work. This made for a much neater finish.
  • We purchased wooden numbers for our clock and painted them with acrylic paint. Wooden numbers are not essential, they could be cut out of cardoard, or even crocheted?
