Giant Wedding Dream Catcher
My daughter is getting married and we are so excited to welcome her fiancé into our family. They have plans to get married down by the beach and hopefully the weather will be beautiful that day because my daughters father-in-law to be is making a birch arbor for them to be married under with this giant wedding dream catcher hanging at the back of it behind them. This is why the dream catcher had to be big. Really big. When all was said and done this beauty measured in at 3 feet wide and 5 feet tall! Wow!
But of course none of that mattered to me as long as my little girl is happy. I made another simpler, and smaller, model that uses feathers to be hung behind their seats at the reception. Read more about DIY Giant Dreamcatcher with Feathers!

Hoop Crochet Center Directions:
I really don't have directions per-say, I can just give you an idea of what I did. A couple of pointers ahead of time:
- All stitches are into spaces, not into other stitches. This is important for spacing later on.
- When you are finishing up your final loops to connect, make sure you have an even number. It helps to have an even number so you can connect the loops equally around the hoop later on.
- For this reason, every row must be crocheted separately from every other row. You cannot do this pattern in the round.
- To get to the center of each loop to start the next round I would slip stitch up the side of the first hoop in the level. When all is said and done you can't even see these extra stitches. The directions for this are in row 6 below.

I am learning how to crochet to make this! I am done with all the parts except the center, I am trying to figure out how to connect the 25 chains, and how to connect the raws with each other, and I didn’t understand well the coupel of pointers you wrote before the center crochet steps... I am kind of lost and I really want to do it. Can I know when are you going to upload the video? And can you make the steps slow and clear for beginners like me? Thank you.

Thank you! I do plan on making a video of how I crocheted the center part but I just haven't had a chance yet. Please let me know how yours turns out!
