  1. When I found out the husband's nephew's fiancée was expecting, I told her when I found out what sex they were having that I wanted to make a baby blanket for her. I love making blankets for others and turning pretty yarn into something gorgeous. I decided to go for a sunburst granny square pattern and followed Sarah-Jayne's (Bella Coco) Pom Pom Edging tutorial on YouTube for the border. I also made it in her favourite shade of purple too! At the end I still had one ball of purple and one ball of beige left, so I decided to try Valerie's First Birthday Crochet Dress pattern a go and I think it turned out fab! Which is even more a bonus that that the Nephew's Bride to Be loves it too! I'd love to know what you all think!
  2. I’m so excited to finally get this one off my list. Ever since I released the Butterflies & Ladybugs blanket, I’ve wanted to make a companion for a little boy. I just adore baby boys. I have two of my own (though not at all babies any more). I worked this one in Tunisian crochet. The pattern has guides for both traditional and Tunisian crochet. Such a fun & colorful piece. It’s quite thick and at 40″ x 40″, it’s large enough for outdoor play. The pattern can be found in my Ravelry store HERE.
  3. Here is a new round ripple I crocheted using Aggie's round ripple pattern. This is 35" inches wide for a lapghan for the Warmth for Warriors group. The lapghan is for a soldier or Veteran in a wheelchair.
  4. Autumns Past Blanket Inspired by vintage nineteenth-century knitted counterpanes, or bedspreads, I designed this crochet version with thoughts of autumns of the past. This blanket is designed for the Advanced Beginner - Intermediate crocheter and will take approximately 20-30 hours to complete.
  5. So the son asked me to make him a Star Wars Blanket! So I decided to have a try at making a pixel art blanket! Making small granny squares (2 rows in each) and joining them as I go. I will add to the thread as I go! Thanks for reading
  6. Me again! Everyone was so helpful when I was making my bunny that I am back here again to ask for your help :-) im about to start a simple blanket, but the pattern will make a 2.4m x .8m blanket. I’d like it to be square. my question is, as it’s done in single crochet, with a chain of 50 and has just short of 100rows, is it as simple as doubling my chain length to 100 to make the chain length similar to the amount of rows? And if so, do I use double the yarn yardage or only 50% more? Thankyou in advance :-)
  7. The YouTube midnight Quilter is a fun and practical way to spend time. http://crochettoday.club/youtube-midnight-quilter/
  8. It took longer found the pattern I was looking for for my crochet !!! http://crochettoday.club/3-multi-colored-yarn-crochet-patterns/
  9. This blanket uses a variation of one of my favorite knitted patterns, “Old Shale”. It’s so timeless and elegant. It’s also quite addictive. I used 3 cakes of Bernat Pop in Birch, Bark & Blue.
  10. After my heart blanket, the same friend had asked me to make her friend's cat a blanket for Christmas. As she and her friend always bought stuff for each other's pets for Christmas! It measured 30" by 30" She was over the moon with it! I thought I would share it here!
  11. I have a cat and I had some 25g balls of yarn, that I couldn’t use for bigger projects, so I chose all the colours, that a cat can see! Which when doing some research, found out was Green, Red, Blue and Yellow! The cat very much loves sleeping on it!
  12. Hi! I am looking for a 2D motif pattern of a pineapple fruit (not a pineapple stitch!) that I can crochet into a recurring pattern as a colour change on a baby blanket. The babys mum love pineapples and I'm struggling to find anything that isn't pineapple stitch, which as someone who doesn't crochet she probably wont get the reference. Any ideas would be massively appreciated thank you! Georgia
  13. My best friend just had her second daughter and I wanted to make a baby blanket for her. I went to the store and saw this beautiful lionbrand #6 bulky yarn that I wanted to use. I then proceeded to YouTube bulky baby blankets and followed the pattern but my blanket is stating out very wavy even after I have crocheted 3/4 rows. I have started over three times trying to tweek the pattern to stop the wavyness but adding links/ really making my links loose/tightening links ect. But nothing helps...i need advice on what I need to do please.
  14. Hello all! I've been crocheting for just over 2 years now and my focus has been mainly on blankets. I've recently started doing block letters as the focal point of the blankets (names, phrases, etc). The person I had doing my grids is no longer available & I have been searching the internet for an easy solution for DIY but I've not been successful. I'll admit I'm not the greatest at math equations when it comes to formulas for increasing the size of things. Does anyone here know of a good site for this? For example, I have a sample of grid letters that are 16x11 which would equate to the letter being 16 rows tall & 11 stitches wide. However, I need the letters to be at minimum 42 rows tall (& then however many stitches wide to make it look like whatever letter I'm creating... again, I'm not a math wiz lol) The grid maker I had was great because I could give her any word, tell her how big I wanted to make the blanket & she would email me a file which had the word on a grid. I called it a "paint by number" for crocheting because I could just count how many stitches to do of each color yarn on any given row & the results were spectacular. (Example attached) Surely someone here can point me in the right direction
  15. In a croche facebook group, which I am part of, I saw this beautiful blanket for baby, I found an excellent gift to make and give to a newborn. I'll leave the link here for you to see how beautiful it is. https://br.pinterest.com/pin/723320390123983006/
  16. One night last month, a good friend, who is also my neighbour seen something and tagged me in it and asked me to give it a try! So I bought the yarn to make the project and matched the yarn colours up as close the ones in the photo! I had made 20 skulls, and put a granny square border around them to make the squares.. In the photo, the blanket, had looked like the squares were all sewn together, but I find personally crocheting them together is a lot neater and tidier! See the photos for the finished product and it was finally nice to have someone appreciate my work, she loves it! P.S this was my first time I'd ever crocheted a skull, or managed to crochet them into squares! So used to just making granny solid squares!
  17. I was asked to make this pattern for a queen size bed. She sent me the first picture and I found the second picture for a pattern. I don't know how large the blanket is in the first picture and I have a little experience using these kind of patterns. Anyway, I think I heard somewhere that if I want to make it bigger I should just double or triple each square, so each square represents 2-3 stitches instead of 1. Does this logic make sense? Would this help make this pattern bigger? Do you think I need to make it bigger? To me this pattern looks like it would maybe for a throw blanket, maybe a little too small for a queen. Thoughts? Please let me know if I can clarify anything.
  18. Hi, I'm preparing for my upcoming vacation. Would like to pack light, so I'm thinking of crocheting a blanket that uses those multi-color yarn. any blanket patterns out there that will look nice on these multicolour yarn?
  19. Hello all, I am very new to crocheting and have only made small pieces so far like coasters, an ear warmer and mug coozies. I am getting ready to make a blanket for my mom and was wondering if the size of the hook and size of the yarn matter too much with a simple pattern? I got super bulky yarn and I think the pattern I liked said to use a 6mm hook with bulky yarn. ALSO, do you count your turning chains as stitches? I've read some people do and others don't. Any tips on which is better and why? Thanks so much!!
  20. I recently discovered the V Stitch and created a few projects using the stitch. I have a scarf and blanket pattern that I can share here. I do my stitch a bit different than some people as I crochet without a chain stitch between V's. Here is a scarf and lapghan I did.
  21. Here is my lapghan blanket I crocheted using the Lumberjack Flannelghan pattern by RedRose. I modified it to make a smaller blanket. My finished lapghan is 35" x 36" with the border. Here is more details on my mods for the pattern if anyone needs them for a smaller blanket.
  22. Please can I ask is it better to wash a baby blanket? I'm not sure whether to wash the blanket on completion before giving it as a present.
