    Granny squares

    Hello. I have a granny square inquiry. I'm making a valance for my kitchen window. I've made several sunflower granny squares, and was thinking to put one at the bottom, next row would be 2, next 3, and so forth, with a square in the middle of the top to attach the two sides. I have no problem connecting squares together, my question is this: Is there any way to attach granny squares to a single/double/triple ect. stitch? Say you're making a row by row throw blanket and want to add squares to the design, is this possible? I can figure out how to attach the top and bottom of the square, it's the middle stitches that are giving me fits trying to keep everything straight. I don't even know if what I'm attempting is even possible, but any help would be totally appriciated. Thank you.
  2. Hey guys, So my cousins girlfriend is pregnant and I want to make a blanket for their baby. It will say "Noah" which will be his name when he is born. I have drafted out the name for how I want it to look and I've come up with 2 designs I like. One will have to be 17 squares long to fit the name and the other will have to be 21 but I don't know how many squares I will need to have a decent amount of squares surrounding the name and what size I should do each square. After all it's a blanket for a baby that I hope he can keep for a few years. What size for the blanket would you recommend? Ideally I would like 3-4 squares either side of the name so I don't want the name massive ???? I will attach a picture so you can see the 2 if that helps Thank you ❤️
  3. Finished this yesterday... All the info is on my blog HERE.
  4. Hi all, just thought I would preview with you some of what I have done in the past week or so, trying to use up all my bits and piecies of yarnnie goodness, they have waited so long, as I promised the whole basket full of baby balls, and medium balls, I would use them all up on something wonderful... So, true to my word, I have this to show you, the rubber bands in the pics are what I keep my balls in line and together with, ( i think they ruff hosue, when not supervised!) and that is how many balls i have used thus far, only a few more to go! Enjoy!!
  5. A baby groovyghan I made for my Sister In Law that is expecting a baby boy For more information about the pattern: http://creativecrochetworkshop.blogspot.com/2014/04/baby-groovyghan.html
  6. Are you the type of crocheter who can “wing it” when you want to make something? Do you just “make it up as you go along” but you really don't care about writing patterns down? Then perhaps you’d like to participate in a new project I’m developing. I would like to put together a pattern book for “state squares” – each square will be designed to pay tribute to or make you think of a specific state. (Think along the lines of the state quarters.) Maybe the square would have a simple rendition of the state flower or bird? Or something that makes you think of that state – gold rush for California, peaches for Georgia, etc. Something other than just the outline of the state shape (although you could certainly incorporate an outline into the design). Sound interesting? Here’s how to submit if you’d like to be a part: Your idea for a state square – it can be sketched out or you can make one and send me a picture of it. If you're not sending a picture of a completed square, give me as much information as you can with your sketch. Help me to "see" what you "see" the finished design looking like. See below for where and how to send your submission idea. That’s it! If your design is accepted, I would then ask for: Your notes on how you made it – as long as they are legible they can even be hand written. You will not need to write the pattern! I will ask you to send me a completed square along with your final notes and I will turn them into a pattern. I will take care of all writing and formatting of the pattern, tech editing, getting final samples made and the photography – all you have to do is come up with the idea and make the prototype. Here’s what you get: The design is yours; however since I will be writing the actual pattern, the copyright for that pattern remains with me. Your name will be on the pattern page as the creator of the design. You will receive a free copy of the complete ebook. I’m also considering offering a printed version of the book via CreateSpace or another print-on-demand service. If I’m able to make that happen, contributors would be able to purchase a copy at cost. Bragging rights! There is nothing like seeing a design you’ve thought up in a book with your name attached. The ebook will be available on Amazon (as well as other venues) and will be publicized everywhere possible. Obviously it would be fantastic if I could also offer monetary compensation, but I cannot. That’s why this project is probably best suited to those who are not established designers, but those who want the fun of having an idea of theirs turned into a pattern and published. (But without having to actually write a pattern!) Requirements for the squares: Must be made with worsted weight yarn – acrylic, wool, whatever you have in your stash is fine Completed squares must measure between 5 ½ & 6 ½ inches square (I will likely be adding a border to each square when finishing them, so your design can reach from edge to edge if necessary) I won’t require a specific stitch count since I don’t want to limit you on the types of stitches you use; but it should be somewhere around 25 – 30 stitches wide; give or take 5 stitches. Questions: Will you provide the yarn to make our square? Since you will be sending me a prototype of your design idea and I will be crocheting the squares again once the pattern is written, there is no yarn support for this project. Feel free to use whatever you have in your stash for the prototype, as long as it’s worsted weight. What happens to the square we send you? If you would like the square sent back when the project is complete, I can do that. Please send a self-addressed, stamped envelope with your submission if you would like your square sent back. Can we submit more than one square idea? Absolutely! Please send a separate email for each submission idea though. Will you accept knitting designs too? No; sorry. This is a crochet-only project. Send your submission idea to: playingwithfiber@gmail.com Please put: 50 State Squares Submission: <add state name here> in the subject line. Make sure to include your full name and contact info (a phone number would be appreciated in addition to your email address; but that's not mandatory) in the body of the email. Tell me about your idea - either in the body of the email or you can attach a separate document. Attach the sketch or photo and you’re done! Deadline for submission ideas: March 31, 2014 You will hear back from me by April 15 as to whether your idea has been accepted for the book. Once notified of acceptance, you will have 30 days to complete the prototype & pattern notes and ship them to me. Other questions? Ask them here or you can email me at the address above. Thanks!

  8. After making just about every scrap afghan there is I am, once again, overun with scraps! I decided to try my hand at making 6 and 12 inch squares per how much of each color I have. I want to make the squares and crochet a main color around each before assembly. I first went online and made two folders on my desktop for storing 6" and 12" patterns. This part went very well and then I began........... I know sometimes you have to add or subtract rows to make things work out but I never thought all of my patterns would seem like a "non fit" My 12 looks good for adding a row but the first couple 6 patterns ............one looks bad because I stopped at a bad point in the pattern and the other seems like just too many added on rows. I wouldn't think it could be so complicated but is there any tips or full patterns that may work better for what I am thinking? I thought random squares would be challenging and a fun way to use up scraps. Hope you can understand my point in this. Maybe I should just make one million granny's daughters and find a charity to donate them to. lol Thanks for any suggestions, help, or patterns.
  9. In an effort to help those less fortunate than us, I am looking for people to dig into your hearts and even deeper into your yarn stash. I am looking for volunteers to make granny squares, to be pieced together, to make afghans for charity. Also anyone how would like to donate hats, booties burp clothes and any other baby items for hospitals would be very much appreciated. I have a few charities... in mind, but would love any ideas for more. The thought of one person making a whole blanket can be daunting, but if each of us made one or two squares, the task would take minimal effort. Of course, if you want to make a whole afghan that would be wonderful too! What if compassionate and creative women all over the USA donated only one 8 inch knitted or crocheted square and donated it? Or donated a set of hats booties and burp clothes? Can you imagine the number of people we could help? Please know that we deeply appreciate your contribution. Also know that you are making a difference in the life of someone else. http://yarnoverforlove.blogspot.com/ Facebook: Yarn Over For Love
  10. Molly's Babies takes gently used dolls & teddy bears, cleans them up, fixes their hair, and then crochets outfits for them. Some dolls & teddy bears will also go with their own blankets, when available. Molly's Babies is a non-profit organization that needs help with doll blankets, hats, outfits, booties, bibs etc. and 4 inch squares (knit or crochet). Square colors are greens, blues, pinks, purples, reds, yellows, or a combination. pretty much any square will work...for boy's and girls. Doll blankets--large enough to cover a normal size doll Doll size bibs, hats, booties, outfits or gowns. You can get a good idea of the size of the dolls and learn how this all began on the website. http://mollysbabies.org/ One does not have to send a bunch of things. Even one bib or hat or square will help immensely. The mailing address is on the website or you can message me and I'll send it out to you. They are located in Connecticut.
  11. I was referred to this site from another, with a link that was titled "Sunflower and Daisy Afghan Squares." I followed this link http://crochet.about.com/gi/o.htm?zi=1/XJ&zTi=1&sdn=crochet&cdn=hobbies&tm=17&f=20&su=p284.13.342.ip_&tt=3&bt=5&bts=9&zu=http%3A//www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php%3Ft%3D120708 only to come up empty. I can't find anything resembling sunflowers or daisies on a search of the site. I do have a picture of an afghan I would love to reproduce, which is why I'm searching...the photo is below... Any help would be appreciated!
  12. HI All, We are looking to create immediate comfort care packages to give to kids who are in the process of being removed from their homes due to neglect, abuse or domestic violence. This project was started by a good friend of mine, Amy A. We will be donating these items to The Department of Human Serives in Cedar Rapids, IA. We have a facebook page https://www.facebook.com/ProjectWarmFuzzy?ref=ts&fref=ts Myself, I am a crocheter and looking for help with blankets. I will be collecting 8x8 and 12x12 squares to make into blankets. You can also donate 36x36 and 36x40 size blankets. Please consider on making a square or 2. We are aslo taking donations of toys. These can be handmade!! If you have any questions at all, please PM me. You can also check out the facebook page and ask questions on there too. Thank you so much. The kids will be so happy on getting these blankets and toys. This is an on going project. Melanie H.
  13. Posting this is probably overkill, because I just posted it on the 'ville's FB page, before I knew the site was back up and running. But I want to try it out. This is a sampler made from stash yarn and patterns from all over the place over the past month or so. The border is No. 40 from the gifted Edie Eckman's book, "Around the Corner." Additional photo and details on ravelry http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Afghaniac/neutral-flowers-afghan Yea for the Crochetville ladies-in-charge! It all works, and it's easy to use and to read. Thank you!
  14. I started making this as a surprise for my youngest son when he was in middle school. Well, surprise! He's now a sophomore in high school. Here is my blog post about finally getting this project done (and setting my intentions for the new year) and a photo of the complete afghan and some of the pieces to be used in solve them.
  15. I own what have to be some of the ugliest potholders ever, and this week, I set out to replace them. You can read about this crochet adventure in three installments (first, second, third). Here is the finished product:
  16. This is from Jean Leinhauser's 101 Crochet Squares. A super interesting technique for decorating the surface. I'll be able to use what I learned here on lots of things. Here is the blog post, and here is a photo:
  17. Thread bookmark made from five Old World Scarf squares worked in size 10 thread (shaded blues) on size 5 (US) steel hook, joined in a strip with ribbon streamers added. Scarf squares pattern
  18. Great pattern for beginners and those who want to create something beautiful! http://idesignadventures.blogspot.com/2011/10/easy-ruffled-squares.html
  19. For a charity raffle, it had to be something eye catching. It is on the cover of "50 Sensational Crochet Afghans & Throws." I changed the color scheme just a little, and the outline stitch, and added a border from Jean Leinhauser.
  20. I am trying not get get further behind in this crochet-a-long, so here is my effort for this week. I really like it turned this way as it highlights a design element that is not as apparent when it is turned 45º.
  21. Hello all, This is the first time I have posted for a comfortghan. My best friend just found out she has Cancer. Now she has to uproot her family and move across the country from WI to TX to be near the treatment center. There are only 2 places in the whole country that treat her kind of cancer. I want to give her something made with love that she can take with her but because of my Carpol tunnel and Tendonitis I know there is no way I will be able to finish one before she has to leave. She thinks she will be leaving in about 2 months. So I thought I would ask you all for some help. I would like it to be comforting and soft. So Caron Simply Soft, or anything that feels soft like that for yarn I am planning on 6in finished/edged squares because I am using the book 200 Crochet Blocks by Jan Eaton for patterns. I was hoping to make a afghan that was 8 blocks across and 12 blocks long. (that is OMG 96 squares! eek!!) I am planning to use traditional solid color granny squares, #98 Old Vienna squares, #14 Alhambra squares, and #92 Victorian Lace Squares. I can send the patterns and pics if you like, just PM me. Or if you want to make ones that have a similar look (open work, lacy looking) that is fine, I am not picky, I just want it to be pretty for her. here are links to free patterns http://crochetme.com/media/p/94831.aspx http://www.yarncrazy.com/gem-star http://www.buttonspecialties.com/pdfs/WindflowerSquare.pdf http://www.jpfun.com/patterns/free/granny_squares/f101003kingfield.shtml I am just figuring on regular worsted weight yarn. darker pinks/rose, dark chocolate browns, reds and purple reds. Like Valentine colors but dark. No bright or neon pinks or pastels. I will try to look up some specific color names and some free patterns that look right and add them to this post. If I have forgotten anything please let me know! Thanks in advance for your help everyone!
