pattern - Phannieby Phoebe Gaughan
yarn used im not sure, and caron sport
hooks used- E,F
this pattern was very easy to follow and fun to do. the brim could be a little bigger. its a bit snug

pattern- fusion blanket
cotton fabric, red heart soft, loop and thread impeccable
size H hook
for the most part this is pretty easy. you sew some blocks. do some top stitching. crochet on top of the top stitches. join the blocks. I did two rounds of hdc, then joined with a flat braid join.

pattern - loosely based on Babette Blanketby Kathy Merrick
yarn- came from a big bag given to me
hook - h
it wont lay flat. i call it wonky. this is my least favorite thing ive made all year

thanks for looking

I love the combination patchwork and crochet blanket. such a clever idea and it looks pretty too. Lovely hat and don't worry about the wonky blanket.  I'm making a knee rug right now that is going to be extremely wobbly and I have decided it will be warmer because of it.  All the lumps and bumps trap air for insulation  Wink

I've never seen a patch work blanket before.  Sure do like it though, and I love the colours either.
