LovelyCAL: addendum 2

Colour pages! :)

As you can see there are two possibilities on how to make your blanket complete - hexagon or rectangle ...

 
I hope by now you already know how to make a heart .. so now you should have to pick the size and shape ..
Next time i'll show you how to join as you go .. and after that there will come at least some heart parts so you could start edging up your blanket (if you are too eager to wait - full pattern pdf is available on Etsy or Ravelry )

Happy crafting! ;)

p.s. now i'm working on second tinyGrannyHeart blanket and so far i'm thinking it will be rectangle at some point :)

Tribute to Granny Square day :)

Last year I made a Starfish granny square for crocheters favourite holiday - Granny Square Day - dreamt up by amazing Susan @suregal27 :)



And well obviously thought that there should be blanket of all the coolest 4 round granny squares there is so I started hooking! Granny Square Tribute blanket - sounds nice right :)
Finding 4 row granny squares was quite a challenge tough .. but do not fear - I have quite a few great patterns linked to this blanket in my ravelry project page so do not hesitate and go check them out ;)
for some i tweaked the patterns a bit or made just first few rounds tough ..

LOVE

LOVE
First take.


Inspiration: LOVE cushion by @misterdomestic& as it turns out it originated from #colorblocklovequilt designed by @huntersds
So now i’m recreating it in crochet as well as changing some things - but the message is still there.

I started with a V because I felt that my Solid granny diamond pattern will fit perfectly - and it did! :)
(I joined those 3 parts like I joined Triangular madness triangles tough to add some texture to the surface)

Scrappy Rug: Pinwheel block

I noticed I have way more scraps than I need to finish my WavyC2C of scraps so ... i played around a little and remembered squares I saw by fantastic Quilt designer & pattern maker Jemima Flendt (@tiedwitharibbon) called ConfettiQuilt so I dreamed up this 😏

Although you can use any pattern to make a scrappy rug - why not something new and fun?


And of course you could make it NOT scrappy at all .. but for me making with scrap yarn is like quilting with old jeans ... Repurposing has become a lifestyle lately :D

How do you start the block?
Colors ..
Pick tone for background (bluish greens for me - will be worked full rows from beginning till end)
Then 3 distinct colors for marking three different parts. I chose dark tones: browns and bluish greys for sides. And white for middle.


Pattern is simple solid granny square quarter.
All stitches worked with two colors at a time.
Tricky part is changing colours but I have quite a few pictures here on how to do it so you should be fine ;)
Tip: untangle threads as you go because otherwise you will have a hard time getting to the 10th row...

V-stitch sweater

As instagrammers might have noticed my autumn jacket is still procrastinating in the boxes .. but I found long forgotten, almost finished V-stitch sweater. and thought to myself that i should finally finish it and rock the spring again! :D
(do you remember the fun and bright spring sweater i made when I was carrying the tiny one?)

So it all started here - when I found it hidden in a box - spring cleaning brings out rabbits too not just hidden mess under the beds :D

pattern release: WavyC2C

THIS IS IT!
That NEW big thing everyone has been waiting for is here! 😜


You can buy the pattern on etsy or ravelry :)


Tell a bit more you ask?
- this is new way of making corner to corner crochet!
Still as simple as always with few alterations that change the look and possibly even the way you think ...
Normally when you work on c2c you cast on 3ch and make 3dc's, but for Wavy one stitch length and count almost always changes (but not to worry in pdf there is chart & written pattern to start your blanket as well as simple rules to work on it and not go crazy counting).
