Hi everyone,
These are some of my latest projects. I love making little things like cushion covers between bigger projects. This one was paticularly quick to make because I used 2 strands of yarn together. It's just rows of dc made into a long strip then crocheted together at the sides. I added the flowers for extra detail.





This is the back,



And my scrapghan



The motifs were really simple, but enjoyable to make. I'd quite like to get some yarn to make another in co-ordinated colours.



edging is just dc for one round then crab stitch to finish,

Thanks for looking,

Alice  Wink

Hi, thanks for all your comments. The motif for the blanket is the simple hexagon from the encyclopaedia of crochet techniques, by Jan Eaton.
