ABOUT OUR DESIGNER
As a coffee and book lover, Dianne, has also included the love of yarn and hook to her top favorite things to do. Dianne is the designer behind Same DiNamics Crochet and has been designing for about 6 years. Dianne re-discovered crochet about 8 years ago and has been crocheting ever since. While her favorite things to crochet are accessories like cowls, Dianne is challenging herself to designing bigger accessories and garments. When Dianne is not reading or drinking coffee you can find her crocheting or behind her trusty laptop named Big Eve just having fun.

The Back Curtain is worked using the single crochet stitch in the back loop only throughout.
Ch 1 does not count as a stitch.
Each color section measures a different size. From the bottom up they measure (approx.): 1st & 2nd, 5”; 3rd & 4th, 4”, and 5th & 6th, 3”.
For the i-cords, leave one end at least 6” long; you’re going to use this end to attach the i-cord to the back curtain.
You may block your Back Curtain and i-cords to relax the pieces but not necessary.

Step 1: Using your Lucet Fork, make 12 i-cords in varying lengths.

Step 4: Make 2 i-cords in CE that measure approx. 14” long.
Step 5: Make 2 i-cords in CE that measure approx. 10” long.
Make 1 tassel in any color you’d like. The sample uses Peninsula.
Assembly and Finishing
Block Back Curtain and I-cords (the sample was misted with water in a spray bottle), and laid flat to dry.
Weave in ends for the back curtain. For the i-cords, weave in one end but leave the other end.
Step 1: Attach the Back Curtain to the dowel rod by crocheting the single crochet stitch around the dowel rod. Use any color yarn you want. I used the same colored yarn as the top row of the Back Curtain.
Step 2: From the left of the Back Curtain, attach the i-cords in the following sequence: 22” CC, 22” CD, 18” CC, 18” CD, 14” CE, 10” CE. You will start at the 4th stitch from the left, then attach the remaining at every 2 stitches.
From the right of the Back Curtain, attach the i-cords following the same sequence as the left side instructions above.
Attach the tassel to the center space in between both sides of the i-cords.
