I just bought this new book and wanted to tell about it. It's called Crochet 24 hour Baby afghans by our own Jean Leinhauser and Rita Weiss. The patterns are so cute. I'm going to start on the purple one on the back cover. It looks to be a fast one and I will be making it in a lovely green, with a brown and green varigated yarn for a trim. The patterns are up to date and very nice. Check it out!
Hey everyone! Hope you are all enjoying your day! My time this Summer has been spent designing a Zebra Blanket for my daughter. I first made a crochet chart and then used the Tapestry Crochet technique. I love this blanket, it turned out perfect. I also designed a simple border for around the body. So many more neon colors await this blanket, and I want to complete one in black/white as well. This chart is listed in my Etsy Shop and it comes with 4 files. They are all high quality and the following are included: a full chart in .jpg and .bmp format, a quick tutorial page on how to read the chart, single crochet, and change colors. This is just a quick tutorial, suited for those who have completed one or two charts recently. The last page contains the border instructions for this afghan and it can easily be used for any blanket you choose. My favorite part of the border is the bold color on the outside with a feminine touch and small amount of texture. If you need help learning how to perform the Tapestry Crochet technique, I am always available via email: Shawna@PurpleKiss.Co Attached to this post are pictures of this afghan. I used Caron Simply Soft for this item and it is just smaller than Twin Size. It is perfect for my toddler daughter to grow into for a long time. I am now making one in baby size with Lion Brand's Pound of Love with 3.75mm hook and it can also be made bigger by using a 6mm hook and Super Saver yarn. The possibilities are endless. Happy Hookin' everyone, I love seeing all of your projects here! ♥ Zebra Blanket Crochet Chart Pattern
