Hi everyone, these are my latest creations. C&C welcome.
This is a pattern I found on ravelry. I liked it because it's a ripple blanket made like an ordinary granny square so it grew really quickly.
It's about 4ft from point to point and took about 4 evenings to complete. I really enjoyed making it. It was a break from the other afghan I'm working on at the moment.
I made this next blanket for my boyfriends sisters baby, he's due in a few weeks. I wanted it to look a bit like twister, but in shades of blue and green.
This is a close up of the edging. It's a stitch that I just found called crab stitch. It's double crochet backwards and it makes a really cool spiral look. You've probably already used it a million times but it's new for me!
My cushion cover is made in a chunky yarn and is worked in trebles. I made a loose cotton envelope style liner for it. I really wanted to use wooden buttons, but you can't get anything around here (Yorkshire) so they are plastic.
Thank you for looking.
