  1. My wife is starting her first project which is a blanket for our boys. It keeps rippling or curling. Can anyone tell us why this is happening?
  2. Lace-up Baby Blanket and Chick - Free Pattern
  3. These blankets are so popular right now! This was a custom request for a 6 year old girl that lives in Canada for Christmas. So quick, easy and fun to make!! Took almost 8 skeins of super bulky yarn and a Q hook!
  4. Here is a little baby doll wavy ripple blanket I crocheted. It uses a basic ripple stitch pattern and here is the free blanket pattern directions. This fits my little 11 inch baby doll but you can just crochet more rows for a longer blanket. Enjoy!
  5. What are some good stitches to use for a blanket? I am making a blanket for myself, and it is a twin size blanket. I am measuring it by putting it on my bed and crocheting row after row. Right now I am using a doublr cro het stitches like I did my last blanket and well, I am pretty tired of basic stitches. I am wondering what other stitches I can use to make a blanket? Here's another thing, I am going to be using embroidery using the slip stitch method all throughout this blanket. So, I want my stitches tight. Like the double crochet, but something tighter. I saw something called a linked triple stitch and I just couldn't get the hang of it and a regular triple stitch is very loose, but I also want to see what is out there for this type of project. Can somebody please help me? I don't want single crochet, as that is a stitch I have already used. I kind of want to explore. I also found stithes like the shell stitch would be hard to crochet the words onto. I am using a J size hook with Red Heart with love jumbo black yarn for the blanket and red and white for all of the words. Thanks so much in advance!
  6. Well after making my wedding bouquet for my wedding in March 2015, our three year old son asked me to make him a bright green blanket. Now I'm not very good at straight lines in crochet let alone straight lines on paper lol, so I opted for a granny square throw. It consists of 63 squares (7x9) Each square has 6 rounds in it! I finished off with a double crochet border to make it more square. I have attached a few photos, one is off the blanket up close and personal, one is one with my son asleep with it on top of him, He went to sleep while I was finishing the border on the blanket and then woke up to it. I thought I would surprise him. However I woke up to being kissed and cuddled in appreciation for his blanket that I made him. So I managed to get a photo of him with it. I hope you like it! It's been a long time since I worked on a big project that I could post on here! I hope you like it! My next project I want to do and it will be my first attempt at making one, is a pillow!
  7. This is kind of hard to explain in words, but I've attached a rough sketch of what I'm trying to make, so hopefully that will help. The project I'm working on is one of those blanket dolls where the "body" is a blanket but there's a stuffed animal or doll "head" on top (sorry, I don't know what they're actually called, but you can see my point in the sketch I've attached). I want the blanket portion to represent the doll's dress, so I'd love it to have a scalloped edge around the bottom/outer portion of the circle. However, all the patterns I've found online are for much smaller "scallops", as opposed to just 7 or 8 around the entirety of the blanket. Basically, what I'm trying to make is something similar to a round ripple-patterned blanket, but with the edges being rounded instead of pointed. I've been crocheting for years and know how to read patterns if anyone has one I could use, but I just haven't been able to find on online. Thanks for your help! Here's a very rough sketch of the final project. I'd like the "base" of the doll (i.e. the blanket portion you can see more clearly in the top view) to be about 10'' in diameter. Sorry I'm not the best artist, but hopefully this gets the point across:
  8. Hi all, I just moved to my own apartment recently and have been saving this incredibly soft bamboo cotton yarn for a blanket for my new place. I decided to alter an older design of my own for a bag to make into large squares for the blanket. I had mostly white and a bit of pink yarn saved up for this project and so decided to use the pink to create relief stitches to outline the design on the squares after the squares were done. Let me know what you think. I have written up the pattern and am looking for testers for the pattern. Do check out the thread in the forum if you are keen to test the pattern for me. Thanks.
  9. Hi I have a question. Is it possible to start a ripple pattern part way through a blanket? I want to make a blanket that looks like the sea with a beach. I want to crochet the beach straight but then I want to do the sea with a ripple pattern. I want to do the beach first as I am using Lionbrand homespun and that would make it easier to start as the chains are nearly impossible to see. Thanks
  10. Here is the final baby afghan for a coworker's beautiful new baby girl. Colors are most like the last picture
  11. Yet another baby afghan. This one is for a boy. There is a wave of fertility in our department. This is a corner-to-corner pattern (my first) called Spring into Summer by Felted Button. Yarn is Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable in Dragonfly.

    Baby Afghan

    Here is a baby blanket that I finished recently. The pattern is Floral Baby Blanket by Adi Keren on Ravelry.com. Beautiful pattern, not difficult. Used scraps.
  13. I crocheted this blanket a few years ago as a surprise for a friend. She named her son Aero and the theme of the shower was airplanes. It turns out the colors of the shower were the exact same as the blanket and I had no idea. She was crying when she saw it.
  14. I started work on this piece August 1 (Here is a link to the inaugural blog post) and finished it yesterday with 15 minutes to spare (Here is a link to the final blog post). There are times I honestly thought I would not get it finished, but with lots of help from my family (thanks especially to my youngest son who has become quite the expert coffee maker over the course of this) and friends, here it is:
  15. Hello Crochet friends ! This cute little granny square is great for making blankets The great thing about the 1st row is that is only uses a small amount of yarn. You can change colour for the popcorn round and then your main colour for the granny stitch section Use the same colour for all the popcorn rows or change use up scraps and make a beautiful scrap blanket I hope you enjoy this cute little square, thank you for taking the time to read my post Written pattern can be found here (when you click the link you will need to scroll down the page a little to find pattern) http://www.bobwilson123.org/afghans--granny-squares.html
  16. Well I have made a start with the flowers, now just need to stick the alternative colour borders on!
  17. Right I found this tutorial: http://tillietulip.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/pink-shasta-daisy-blanket-is-finished.html To which I have been out and bought some wool with my birthday money today! Well I'm itching to start! See photo below: I am going to be using the white for the petals and then the do the middles of the daisy's alternative colours: so like half in the purple and half in the pink then do the rounds the opposite colour to what the middle is. So for e.g. First Square: purple middle, white petals, pink rounds (2 rows) Second Square: pink middle, white petals, purple rounds (2 rows) Third Square: purple middle, white petals, pink rounds (2 rows) Fourth Square: pink middle, white petals, purple rounds (2 rows) and so on.. Would that look alright? So when I put them together, ie sewed together it would be like pink, purple, pink purple in rows Does this make sense to you? It makes sense to me in my head! Also how many rows across and down would you suggest to make for an afghan for a single bed. This will be my first ever attempt at something like this! Nikki

  24. Hi all, I ordered I Love This Yarn Iced Sugar Ombre in worsted weight. I am going to be making a baby blanket about 24X36. This is for my cousin to give to her grandchild to be. I was thinking of making a corner to corner or maybe a basket weave stitch. Since I have never made the basket weave pattern, I'm hoping someone can give me input on the thickness of the weave. Do you think it would be too thick/heavy for a baby blanket in worsted? Any suggestions for a pattern for a blanket, hat, booties, mittens using Ombre, would be super! It has to be relatively simple as I haven't made anything too complicated. Any and all suggestions will be very much appreciated. Thanks, Laraine
