21  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Ton sur ton Plaid on: December 27, 2009 03:28:15 AM

Yeee! Finally it's finished! My crocheted granny square plaid. It took me months to make this (half way I even started all over because I decided to change the design of the squares. I had to crochet half of them all over again). A few weeks ago Ive set a deadline to finish this plaid and the deadline was Christmas! And Ive made it just in time before Christmas I'm so very happy with my plaid! I love the mix of grey and blue colours with the white. And it's nice and warm (and of course my cat loves it too!).

Free pattern below and at: http://blendingblue.blogspot.com/2009/12/crocheted-plaid.html

   About 500 600 gr white wool
   50 gr dark grey
   50 gr light grey
   50 gr dark blue
   50 gr light blue
   50 gr mid blue or multi coloured wool
   Crochet hook 5,5 (European size)

Crochet 25 squares according to the pattern. Crochet each first and second row in different colours (for example: row 1 in light grey and row 2 in dark grey) and change to white from the third row. Make sure you make one square of each colour combination. A few combinations will be made double to match the requirement of 25 squares (which combinations you make double is up to you). Then sew all squares together using white wool to make a large square of 5 x 5 squares. Finnish off all loose threads. Then crochet a border of singe crochets in dark grey.

Have fun!

23  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Warm green scarf on: December 03, 2009 12:18:05 PM

I made this scarf for the Knitted Winter wear Swap at Swap-bot. It's knitted from beautiful 100% wool in all shades of green. Green is my swap partners favourite colour so I think she will love this. It's quite long but not to broad so it's easily wearable. I added some ruffles at the ends. I didn't cut them short for a nice 'grungy' look.

I love this scarf so much. I actually stood about half an hour in front of the mirror saying goodbye to my beloved scarf. So I hope she will like it as much as I do....

(and I think Im going to make another one, but due to projects piling up this will probably be next winter)

I wrote a tutorial on how to make the hat yourself. Enjoy!

Thank you all so much for the lovely compliments.

Syntaniel: I don't know what it's called in English, but it's made of 3 double crochets (? yarn over hook 2 times) but leave the last loop onto the needle. When crocheting the third stitch pull the thread through all 4 loops.
27  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Cute blue hat on: September 11, 2009 03:35:32 AM

Last weekend I was at a VWT2-meet and a friend of mine had this cute, crocheted blue hat. I kind of stole it from her and wore it an entire day. Actually I didn't want to give it back (sorry I was a pain in the ass, Carlijn) but then I remembered I had some wonderful petrol-blue yarn at home. I promised her to tell her how I made it, because she doesn't use patterns and never can reproduce the same hat twice, but too bad, the model did turn out quite different...

However, I looooove blues and greys so how can I not like this hat. Maybe this model looks even cuter on me

Here you can find a tutorial to make the hat yourself: http://littlezhandmade.blogspot.com/2009/09/blue-hat.html
28  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Crocheted cushion on: September 03, 2009 10:23:29 AM

I finished this crocheted cushion today. I think it turned out lovely; one side is crocheted with thick wool and the other side is made of rather shaggy woolfelt. Now, lets see how long this will survive my cat's claws...
