- Less than 1 skein of cotton embroidery floss in yellow, gray, and black
- Size B (2.25mm) crochet hook
- Embroidery needle
st(s) = stitch(es)
ch = chain
ss = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
inc = work 2 sc in the same st
sc3tog = decrease across 3 sc
Starting with the yellow embroidery floss:
Round 1: Make a magic circle and work 6 sc into the circle, ss to first sc to join (6)
Round 2: ch 1, inc around, ss to join (12)
Round 3: ch 1, [inc, sc in the next st] around, ss to join, turn (18)
Rounds 4-5: ch 1, sc in the next 3 sts, turn (3)
Switch to the gray embroidery floss:
Round 5: ch 1, sc in the next 3 sts, turn (3)
Round 6: ch 1, sc3tog (1)
Fasten off. If you'd like to add a filament to your bulb, you can stitch one on using a needle and a bit of gray embroidery floss.
Using the black embroidery floss:
Row 1: sc in the 2nd ch from the hook and in the next st, turn (2)
Row 2: ch 1, sc across, turn (2)
Repeat row 2 until the band is the size you need. It should be able to fit snugly around your finger (crochet has a tendency to stretch), but make sure it's not so tight as to be uncomfortable. I made mine about 2.5" long, but different sized fingers will need different lengths.
Using the long tails leftover from the light bulb (or another piece of yellow embroidery floss), stitch the light bulb tightly to the ring band. I recommend placing the light bulb directly over the ring band seam in order to hide it. As long as you use yellow floss, you don't need to worry too much about hiding your stitches, since they should just blend in.
Weave in any remaining ends.
