I was having a big sort out of all my craft stuff and came across this blanket. I'd completely forgotton about it and it must of been one of my first crochet projects. It was so close to being finished I don't know why I didn't complete it years ago. All I had to do was finish the edging.

It's kind of messy and badly finished, but I like the stripey squares. I might have a go at something similar for my next project. It's good to be able to look at something and see how much you've improved.

This project I've just completed. It's a colour experiment inspired by this post

 https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=374468.0   <----- soooooo beautiful

I used mophead stitch instead of spiderweb and only used 2 strands together.

I'm going to have another go at a project like this. It's great using a couple of strands together, it grows so fast!

Thanks for looking.

Hi everyone, just wanted to show you my latest blanket. It's the first time I've really made something this big without someone in mind to give it to.

I've been wanting to make a blanket with a more subtle colour scheme as I always seem to go mad with colours. My mum had loads of yarn in shades of blue that she'd bought for something that never got made and said I could use it, so I just got some cream yarn to go with it and sketched out a plan.

It's about 70 inches square. I used the willow pattern from the 200 crochet blocks book and then just did quite a simple edging. Each square took about 30 minutes to make and there are 100 all together. I took yarn to work and managed to make 1 each lunch break if I ate really fast. I think I started it in January.

I really wanted to do the edging with the grey/blue but didn't have any left so I had to use cream which gives more of a contrast than I wanted. I think It looks okay though. Just have to think of something to do with it now.

Let me know what you think,

Alice  Wink

Thanks for the lovely comments, here's the link to the pattern for the ripple blanket:


You'll really enjoy making it cos it's super quick!

For the other blanket I used pattern 89 from the 200 crochet blocks book but I made it a bit smaller. It's just a basic circle in a square pattern though so you should be able to find one easily online.

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.  Smiley

So pretty and unusual. Definately something that will be passed down through the generations.

lol, I've made a few afghans now and every time I've finished all the blocks I think "I only have to sew them together now and I'm finished", then a week later I'll just about have it done.
I love the way you put the blocks together. It's kind of like log cabin patchwork. Good job

I love this! What a fantastic idea. I think your niece will love it. I might have to try and make one for myself.  Smiley
