Jul.Christmas.Noel - Croyo-Yo's





is a great little

#stashbuster project

for Christmas.


All you need is fabric, crochet cotton…

a needle & hook.


Jul.Christmas.Noel - Croyo-Yo's


 To make my Yo-Yo’s

I  used one of those fancy Yo-Yo makers.

(30mm – Clover)


But I am sure the nimbled fingered amongst you

will be able to produce them just as quickly

without one.

 To allow me to crochet around the yo-yo,

I chose to blanket stitch around my fabric rounds.

(I used crochet cotton)

As you can see from thesee projects,


‘Kaffe’ Fusion blanket

‘Sweet Nothings’ napkins


the blanket stitch is not only useful, quick to do,

but also adds a nice look to your work.

The doily section of the Croyo-Yo

is really simple.

It consists of chain & single crochet

Fabric to fit a 30MM Yo-Yo maker

30MM Yo-Yo maker (Clover)

3 ply soft crochet thread

Cotton sewing thread

 To create the ‘Cro’ of Croyo-Yo;


Step 1: Make your fabric Yo-Yo as per the
manufacturer’s instructions,

making sure you fasten off  the fabric Yo-Yo

to create a nice center point.

Step 2: Blanket stitch around your fabric

leaving approximately 7mm space between each stitch. Fasten off.


Step 3: Crochet your fabric Yo-Yo

    I’m wondering what size crochet thread you used. JoAnn has 3, 5, 10. Not sure about the ply. Thank you!

      Hi Ann,

      Thank you for stopping by Sewing Daisies, it’s great to hear from you.

      You will definitely need 3 ply or less for the blanket stitch around the fabric yo-yo, but you could go higher for the actual crochet.

      cheers H
