Rat Tail crochet lei
Posted by: Karen ()

At my father's funeral someone sent a Rat Tail Crochet Lei. I buried it with him. It was very pretty. It looked like a Pikaki flower lei. It was made with Rat Tail cord (shiny skinny white cord). I just came back from Maui. The instructions are in none of the lei books. Ben Franklin Craft Store had a class to make this lei, but not while I was there and I couldn't get the pattern. Does anyone have the pattern? I would love to make this lei.

Thank you,
Karen

I have the pattern - in fact, I'm making 7 for my daughters graduation. Here's how you make the little round "pikake" flowers:

you need 1 long cord (for the base) probably about 30 inches long

1) make a slip knot and single crochet on to the base
2) chain 5
3) single crochet in the 3rd chain
4) single crochet in the first chain (you'll end up with something that looks a little like a curled up square (just smush it together to form the "ball"winking smiley

5) continue making about 200 "flowers".
6) Now take green eyelash yarn and single crochet on the base. Chain 3 and repeat the single crochet in between each of the flowers.

I hope this makes sense. It's really quite easy once you get started

Hi Jo,
I can't picture how this would look. I'm pretty good at crochet, but have to make so many in the next 2 weeks for my daughter's high school graduation for her and all her friends. I hope it's easy!

Do you have a picture? Any other patterns you have for eyelash crochet leis would be greatly appreciated. Just bought a bunch of stuff from Ben Franklin's in Hawaii but didn't buy any books!! ;-)

Thank you soo much - I hope you get this!!

Thank you for this pattern!! When we lived in Hawaii I @#$%& out my pattern books and they were never returned. I have been searching the Internet for this pattern! I am making some for my son's and nephews graduation.

I saw several types of these Lei in Wal Mart in Maui, I bought one which I found to be 4 lengths of crocheted yarn. The second one was of eyelash and rat tail , I finger crocheted the one long one (I was on Holiday remember) and wove the rat tail/eyelash one around my crocheted work. I then added a necklace of shells . This made for an awesome hat band which drew more compliments than I've ever recieved for a handmade item... The idea is all yours! Sandra
