Finished: Purple Square

Been a bit off with my crochet lately. Not feeling too good and trying to prep for my wedding next month. I’ve been trying to take the time to crochet, but it’s really been lacking. Hopefully I get a bit more time after the wedding prep dies down.

 

Anyways, I made this giant solid square blanket out of some variegated yarn from Ice Yarns. It was really simple to make and there’s patterns all over the internet. I’m shocked it took me this long to actually make one.

Finished: Call The Midwife

I found this yarn online at Ice Yarns and loved that it’s variegated without being in your face. I wanted to do the “call the midwife” blanket but the chart has vanished from the internet and i couldn’t be bothered trying to read the pattern. I found this variation online and loved it. I did change the pattern by removing the extra rows of spaces as i find them unnecessary and it slows down the crochet time by a lot. I have 400g of this yarn and plan on making it baby sized so rather small. It’s a lovely soft yarn and works really nice.

Mustard Blanket

I got this yarn years ago and had good intentions to make a giant blanket. It’s a big 400g ball or acrylic and wool mix. But i never got around to it and it stayed in my shelf for ages. After being sick of it taking up space (so i can buy more yarn) I decided to make a blanket. I went with the diamond pattern again as I love working with it, it’s super easy, and it works up quick. My annoying cat loves all my crochet things and loves to play with the yarn and sit on the blankets as I try to make it. I gave her her own blanket and she still wants the one I’m working on.  This will be a small baby size blanket and I only plan on using one ball of yarn.

Finished: Baby Granny

There is nothing better than a simple granny blanket. I ordered this yarn without a project in mind and after a lot of research I just went back to a granny. I’m trying to make smaller blankets right now so they are more practical for strollers and babies, plus they work up quick and Im less likely to get bored. This will be the first of many Baby Granny Blankets!

Finished: Garden Granny Blanket

 

I love a granny blanket. So simple to make. I found this yarn in the clearance bit of the local craft store and loved it. I love pink, blue, and green together. This worked up so fast, I’m not sure how. Maybe I was just really enjoying the project. This took about 400g of yarn and came to a very decent size. I gave it a nice ruffled border and called it a day. I’m not sure on the brand of the yarn as it didn’t have a wrapper. It was amazing to work with and incredibly soft. This would be great for a baby blanket. I enjoy making simple blankets with beautifully coloured yarn. It’s so relaxing to not have to count a pattern out every row.

Finished: Beth Blanket

A few weeks ago my friend Beth asked me to make her a blanket. Normally I don’t make commissioned blankets, but for her I made an exception. She choose the pattern and the colours of the yarn, I just had to make the rest- simple! The yarn took some time to come from England, but was amazingly soft. I love working with Stylecraft yarn. The pattern was a simple granny but with colour variations. I love patterns so trying to make things ‘random’ was a challenge. I tried to not think about it too much. I used the join as you go method for the final rounds. The border was two rounds of pink followed by a white scolloped border. This blanket took forever. It is one of my favourites though and well worth the effort.
