Here is the new blanket I promised to make in fall colors. I really can’t seem to get enough of the chevron pattern. It works up so quickly and gives a really nice gradient look. These colors are something I have been trying to put together for a while now. Finally stumbled onto Mango (caron simply soft) which was the perfect component in this gradient, with an awesome contrast of grey. Made these beautiful Fall colors come together.
Caron simply soft;
White, sunshine, Mango, persimmon, grey heather.

Hello pretty people in my computer,
Hope you are doing well. Here is my latest project in knitting is this chevron blanket. It is a really simple and very beautiful pattern. The pattern is available here for free. The colors I chose here are basically a gradient of pink and a contrast of yellow. I have just added a pretty crocheted scalloped edging. I am definitely making this pattern again in other colors.

I completed my first custom order last week. which as a really big blanket. so I didn’t want to start another blanket, instead I started a small project to get ready for the upcoming winter. It is already pretty chilly here. I thought it will be really nice to have a collection of fingerless gloves in all colors.
This is probably the fastest project ever. The pattern is pretty straight forward and is available here for free. I could actually make two pairs in one night.
Caron simply soft yarn
and light country peach
5 mm hook
Finished dimensions: 6.5” circumference and 8” in height
Changes you could make to the pattern: you could potentially play around with the colors and make stripes and make add-ons like little hearts and owls and stitch them to the front side of the glove.
These are cute little ones with no changes.
And are now available on etsy here

Here is my latest cable blanket. This time I really wanted to enjoy the complexity of cables. The pattern for this blanket was available for free on the bernat site (which is not available anywhere now). Please let me know if you find the pattern site I would love to link it in here. I don’t want to violate any copyright rules by posting the PDF here.
For this pattern I thought these beautiful bright colors will look perfect. I used the DIY cable needle for this one as well.

Chartreuse (awesome green yarn), sunshine, soft pink, plum wine, fuschia

Hope you love these pretty colors like I do. I have received my first ever custom order on blue skies blanket. It is going to be so pretty. Really excited for this one. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day.
This is my next venture in knitting. I love the contrasting colors. The blue is just so pretty.
The pattern is really simple and easy to follow. I was scared to start a cable blanket but a couple youtube videos later I had an idea. The second hurdle was buying a cable needle. I didn’t want to spend money on something I wasn’t even sure I could complete. So here is how I made my DIY cable needle from Skewers.
Caron simply soft yarn
Persimmon, Light country Peach, Soft Blue, Blue Mint.
Knitting needle US 8, I used circular needles for this one.
Finished Dimensions: 25”X36”
Changes I made to the Patterns:
4 rows of garter stitch
right side: K6 P2 K6 P2…
Wrong side: P6 K2 P6 K2
Followed by the cable pattern for every alternate K6
Edging: One round of double crochet in white followed by single crochet.
I love how these blankets combine crocheting and knitting. I gives it a beautiful look.
This blanket is now available on etsy. Thanks for stopping by.
Here is my latest venture with colors.
Now I am sort of comfortable with knitting. I just love complimenting the knitted blankets with some pretty crocheted border. The colors for this blanket are really refreshing. I first thought the brighter green are too bright but they actually bring out the pastels beautifully.
This is the same pattern I used for the Midnight Hues blanket . The edging however is a picot border.
Caron simply soft yarn
colors – Victorian rose, Sunshine, Soft Green, Sage, Kelly Green, Cool Green.
Knitting Needle- circular US8
Crochet Hook H size

Edging: one round of Single crochet with sunshine followed by 3 ch picot stitch and 7 single crochets.

A big hello to all the crocheters out there.
I know its been a while since I posted something crochet related but here is a recently completed Tunisian Crochet project. This started out as an experiment to test if I can handle tunisian stitch. It is a crochet stitch but looks somewhat like knitting. Turns out it was not as hard as I thought. I could actually not refer to the pattern and alter the pattern for squaring off the edge. Woohoo!! That was an awesome feeling.
I started this pattern with two initial diamonds.
Caron simply soft
Crochet hook H (5.00 mm)
Finished dimensions: 28”X35”
Changes in the pattern: For this blanket I used one round of single crochet in green followed by a 3 ch picot and 7 sc with blue yarn.
Hope you guys have already tried this or are planning to try this fun pattern. There are so many color possibilities to play with here. Have fun crocheting. Thanks for stopping by.
