Crochet Kitchen Curtains with Chunky Thread

It’s Kristen from Verity Vintage Studio again, back with another Chunky Thread feature! I spend a lot of time in my pretty retro kitchen during the summer, which made me think of freshening it up with window curtains – a favorite simple way to upgrade a room or change the look.

I chose two sweet colors of Chunky Thread – Frosting and Cloud – to make a cotton curtain valance pattern with on point textured pastel motifs that join as you go. I love the fresh floral look of the finished project!

Curtains are a fun way to display some crochet, since they let in a lot of light and don’t need laundered often. This one was made with a kitchen in mind, but of course it could be made in any color combination and length to fit any room’s window sizes.

If you like this look and want to make your own, find the pattern download in my Etsy shop here.

But just to show its versatility here on the RBD blog, I also did a second version just for fun (not included in the pattern download), using only the center of the floral motif in Chunky Thread, as a lace edging to a fabric valance.

Shown here with Bee Plaids and a two-tone crochet motif, it’s a great quick beginner project since a curtain valance requires only a few straight seams to do the hem and rod pockets. I cut a strip about 13″ deep by WOF to make this valance.

I also added a top stitched decorative band over the hem, just for fun!

The crochet trim I made in a long strip, joining each motif to the next one, then sewed the top of each petal by hand to the bottom of the finished fabric curtain.

Either option makes a unique and lovely window dressing!

I always find motif-based patterns are a great creative starter. You could make just one motif for an ornament or to top a pincushion, join them in any square or rectangle size for a pillow, baby afghan, or table topper…so many options. And the lovely Chunky Thread color palette allows for a lot of different looks as well.

Happy crocheting, and happy June!
