First Pattern of the year: Desk Chair

Or maybe I need to call this the last pattern of last year, since that’s when I created it. Oh well, doesn’t really matter, does it?

This is something I worked up really quick in order to have a Christmas present for Boyfriend. I was going to buy him a full-sized chair, but he had to come with me to pick one out. So in order to not leave him empty handed when everyone was getting gifts, I fibbed this:

Desk Chair Pattern

Materials:
I used little bits of leftover yarn, since it’s very small. You can use whatever colour you want, but I used blue, grey, and a tiny bit of black for the wheels. You could also use small black beads for the wheels.
I made this with a 3,5mm crochet hook.

Abbreviations:
ch: chain
sc: single crochet
ss: slip stitch
st: stitch

The seat and backsupport are worked in rows, while the stand is made in rounds.

Seat
Using blue yarn, ch11
Row1: Starting from the second chain from the hook, sc10, ch1, turn (10)
Row2-7 (6 rows): sc1 in every st, ch1, turn (10)
Row8: sc5, fold your work in half and sc around to close. Stuff lightly before fully closing the seat.
Finish off and weave in end.

Backsupport
Using blue yarn, ch16
Row1: Starting from the second chain from the hook, sc15, ch1, turn (15)
Row2-7 (6 rows): sc1 in every st, ch1, turn (15)
Row8: sc8, fold your work in half and sc around to close. Stuff lightly before fully closing the backsupport.
Finish off and leave and end of yarn.

Now sew together both parts to make and L shape.

Stand
Using grey yarn, ch2
Round1: sc5 in the second chain from the hook (5)
Round2-5 (4 rounds): sc1 in every st (5)
Round6: ch4, work back from the second chain and sc1 in every ch (3) ss in next st of the chair. Repeat around, so you get a star (*) shape with five legs.
Finish off and leave and end of yarn. Pull the end through the stand and sew the stand to the middle of the bottom of the seat.

Now make the wheels by putting a little bit of black yarn at the end of each leg. You can secure it with a drop of glue (you can see that I didn’t and my knots came loose 😦 ), or make wheels out of small black beads.
You can put a bit of pipecleaner or wire in the stand to give the chair more stability.

And there you have it, your very own, teeny, tiny desk chair ^_^

I hope you enjoyed this pattern and if you have any questions, feel free to let me know!
