Ooooh! that is good for a first scarf.. the first scarf i ever made was for my teddybear when i was about 9 he still wears it.. but its more of an abstract shape scarf than straight as it should be!

What yarn did u use? i really like the colour.

Yeah, thats what i figured about the intarsia technique, i have started a scrap square and i am writing the directions out in chart form as i go to see if that helps. But so far it is just confusing me even more! lol! i tried To do it with different balls of yarn for the colours too.. but i havent had any luck figuring it out yet.. i am hoping that if i keep going at it it'll come to me..

I also as you suggested asked her about doing the first part of the square in one colour then switching to the other.. i am hoping she will come round to that idea! I think it would look good like that myself.. i could even do the eyelet stripes in alternating colours.. if she liked?!

thanks for ur reply Jints.

This is my first time posting a question....

OK, so.. my friend asked me a favour and wants me to make a baby blanket for her to give to her cousin... after going through loads of different free patterns she chose this one:


Its a nice design i think.. and it is pretty simple.. but she has asked if there is anyway of making the 'leaf/petal' bits a different colour maybe blue n the rest white? i am just having trouble trying to work out how to do it? i'm probably being stupid and overlooking something really obvious.. but i was just wondering if there are any suggestions?


786  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: My first granny square... nothing exciting, yet - I'm excited.... lol on: January 08, 2008 03:31:50 PM
it looks great! I too am attempting granny squares for the fist time! After i finished all of my gift projects i felt i had nothing to do.. so i've started on granny squares.. i just keep making them at the moment.. only simple tho.. but i have a lot of baby type yarn leftover from projects over the past 2 years cos all of my friends keep having babies!.. so i figure i will just keep making them.. n then when one of friends next has a baby i'll be able to pick out from my wide selection and make blankets! lol! i only really started making them last week.. and so far i think i have about 25!

HaHa! Thats Awesome! i was thinking about attempting one myself just the other week.. cos i was trying to think of a christmas gift for my brother. I'm not sure if i'd b able to make one as good as urs tho! But i may just have to give it a try, u have inspired me!

i love it!

788  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Can anyone tell me how/what this might be? on: November 20, 2007 06:36:00 PM

I'm SO glad u posted this! I remember having a blanket like that! My Nana and my Mum made it i think! but i didn't know how?! And as neither of them are around anymore i didn't know who to ask about it? i tookup knitting again n i recently taught myself how to crochet.   

I REALLY wanted to make one of these types of blanket! But didn't know where to start?! but now i do! AWESOME!!!

Thank you!
