Follow the tutorial on how to crochet this fuzzy crochet lei. A great crochet idea for weddings, graduations, or any special event. This lei was created because I got tired of having the straw-made leis unravel on me. Crocheting a lei yourself is as special as a making a flower lei.
For this lei we need:
about 1 hour,
2 dark brown kukui nuts,
2 x 15″ long 3/8″-wide yellow ribbon,
multi-color yellow-orange-red rat-tail cording,
yellow fun fur 0r Shiny Matical yarn or other fun fuzzy yarn
choose your own color variation.
This yellow lei is a wonderful, and memorable gift to a special occasion: graduation, ceremonies, special achievements.
Take the rat-tail and fun fur yarn together and start with four chain loops. Connect by inserting into the first chain. Single crochet in each chain stitch and spiral until you reach a length of 36 to 40 inches. Connect the yellow ribbons to the two ends of the lei. Pull ribbon through kukui nut holes and fasten with a knot. You can brush the lei let the fuzzy yarn come out better.
