Shelf Curtain

Hi everyone! I'm going to introduce you a small shelf curtain today.

This shelf is placed next to an island table in my kitchen. My friend gave me the shelf when she left the U.S before going back to Japan. I'm using the shelf to organize my kitchen tools on kitchen counter. However, the shelf is facing the front door, so I wanted to hide the item on the shelf from visitors.

I used a free afghan pattern for this curtain. You may get the pattern here. 
This pattern is very easy. If you are a beginner, it's great pattern to practice crochet.

I used cotton and linen mixed yarn, so I can use the curtain in all seasons. To give the curtain a professional look, I blocked the top and bottom edges. That's why all points on the edges are beautifully pointing down. The blocking process takes overnight to completely dry, but it's worth it. If you don't know about blocking, you can learn about it here.

To make the curtain something original, I used brown ribbon on an edge. It's very easy to make something original! You just need an idea. :)

If you have any questions about the curtain, do not hesitate leave your comments. I'll answer you as fast as I can. Have a wonderful creating time!
