Staying with relatives at this time of year with new light coloured curtains and the lighter nights is a challenge so we inserted some black out linings and oh what a difference it makes to being able to sleep.
The new curtains didn't come with anything to hold them back so I quickly whipped up some simple, quick and easy tie backs in white Stylecraft Special double knitting yarn using a 4 mm hook.
Row 1 - chain 7, chain 3 for turning chain, turn work, treble crochet in 7 chain spaces = 8 treble crochet (including turning chain).
Row 2 - chain 3 for turning chain, turn work, treble crochet in next 7 stitches = 8 treble crochet (including turning chain).
Repeat until a total of 54 rows have been worked for each tie back.
I didn't add a border because the turning chains created a nice bumpy edge and I simply used the gaps between stitches to hold the tie backs onto the hooks on the wall.
So there you have it, quick and easy tie backs, a simple solution to holding the curtains back :-)
