Sunburst Hexagon Blanket No. 2

Hi there,

I have been wanting to try this color combination for a while and I love it. It slightly out of my comfort zone but still can blend in really well. Let me know what you think. I have made this blanket before, check-it-out.

So this blanket is a result of a number of patterns

1. Pattern for the actual sunburst hexagons can be found here. This is a free pattern and is super easy. you can use scrap yarn or play with colors on this one.

2. Joining – I used a continuous join as you go method for hexagon blankets. A tutorial for which can be found here. I love using continuous join as you go for the twists between the hexagons. So pretty.

3. Edging – I squared of the edges before doing a border by doing half hexagons on one side and just long stitches on the other. The border itself 2 rounds of granny stitch. One round of 1sc ch2 in blue. One round of granny. One round of 1sc ch2 in maize and one round of granny stitch.

Knitted stripes Baby blanket No. 3

Here is my latest knitted stripes baby blanket in gender neutral colors. I love these colors together with the mild green and the pop of purple.

I used the random stripe generator for this. I really like it as a tool to see how the colors go together. I frequently play around with it for color inspirations and to get a visual of the blanket.

Here is the link to the pattern. I have made two such blankets earlier in yellow and grey and blue and red. I do really enjoy this pattern and with the updates in it, it looks even better. However, blocking is essential for this blanket to really show the stitches.

Circular needles

Mother’s day and latest hearts blanket

I might have told you a number of times already but to reiterate on this special day, my mother taught me all about crochet and knitting. So for this mother’s day, I would like to thank her for helping me find my passion in crochet and knitting and inspiring me with beautiful ideas. I know most people must feel lucky to have their mothers and i do too. She is amazing and the best human being I know. Selfless, caring, loving, patient, passionate and crafty person. Apart from knitting and crochet she sews, quilts and does a lot of embroidery. I guess owe her for my crafty genes (PS she is way more crafty than I am)

My latest project was for a soon-to-be mother to a baby boy. I made complimentary baby hat for the newborn. I love this pattern and have used it before a number of times in blue, and pink. This pattern is super quick and lovely to work with. The only change I made this time is to make complete hearts at the ends (than the half-hearts as the pattern suggests).

Here is the link to the free Swirl Hat pattern on ravelry. It is superfast and a lot of fun. I am currently making a ton of these in every possible color.

File May 10, 11 21 29 AMHappy mothers day to all the mom’s out there. Thank you for everything that you do. Have a great one.

Crochet 3D squares Blanket

Here is what I have been working on for a long time. I have had this project in progress since last November. I know we all have projects snoozing around. But I usually have only one or two projects (I know I am kinda crazy like that). Unfinished projects drive me crazy and I have to get them done as soon as possible or if I don’t like it, it has to be frogged.

This one was awesome but I had quite a few colors to work with. So it took me a while to get the colors together and get a chart so I knew which one went where. I really like how it turned out. It was worth the wait. This blanket is for a dear friend and she got the yarn and colors and I have to say it was awesome. The yarn is 100% wool and the colors are really nice and go well together. Here is the link to the pattern. I really enjoyed working on this pattern (with this yarn, it was a really nice winter project). The blanket is soft and warm and thick.

Staggered Chevron Baby Blanket

Hello fellow crafters,

Here is my latest staggered chevron blanket. I absolutely love this free pattern I found on Ravelry. This is a new pattern and this is the first time I’m trying it and I already love it and I can see this being made like a billion times in the future.

This time I used a blue gradient and a contrast of yellow but you can easily just make it using a bunch of different combinations and stagger the chevrons as you want.

Materials:

Caron simply soft in the colors. White, Lemonade, Robin’s Egg, Blue Mint, Ocean.

Finished dimensions: 27”X 30”

Edging: Since these are baby boy colors the edging need to be less frilly so I did a simple double crochet and one round of reverse single crochet.

This blanket is now available on etsy. Check it out.

Thanks a lot for stopping by. Another big crochet project just got done so it is coming soon right here.
