Rakhi Interlocked

As humans, we define any long term interaction with another human being in terms of relationship just like parents, spouse, friends, stranger, cousins, in-laws etc; though committed, single, married are defined as the status of your relationship, they still do not identify your close circle.

Out of these relationships, some are considered more auspicious and sentimental than other like the bond an interlock between mom and son, dad and daughter or a brother and a sister. We celebrate mothers day, fathers day and family day all over the world, but in India, we celebrate a day for brother and sister. The brother always promises to protect her sister through thick and thin. This auspicious day is called as Raksha  Bandhan.

 Process:

So why not make a rakhi by myself for my cousins. I liked the crochet rakhi idea and started looking for a design. I stumbled upon this design by Swathi Phadnis, who made crochet rings look so beautiful. An interlocked relationship of brother n his sister through the eternity. The design is interlocked rings with a chain to tie the rakhi around the wrist. This can be very well created as Friendship Bands as well.
Happy Raksha Bandhan! 

Interlock Rings:-

R1: Starting with a magic circle, make 30-40 Single Crochet stitches; join at the beginning with a slip stitch.

R2: Ch 2, Half Double Crochet (HDC) in each SC; join at the beginning with a slip stitch. Do no cut the yarn. Chain 30 and tie at the end to create the band.

Repeat R1-R2 for the 2nd ring.

Pointer: The magic circle for the 2nd ring should cross under the center first ring and exit out to interlock. In case, you are unable to visualize, follow this pictorial representation for better understanding.

Product Specifications:

Dimensions:-

  • Diameter of the rings: 1″-1.5″
  • Band Length: 12″-14″

Alterations:-

  • The sizes can be changed based on your requirement.

  • Extend the rings to convert into a necklace with a clasp at the back to lock it.

Remember: do not over accessorize it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!
