Wedding Crochet blanket

This is my 100th blog post!!! yay!!

Here is a WIP I’ve been working on for over a year. It has been in time out for a while and it is finally back on my hook again and has reached its completion. Phew!!

This is a crochet blanket which is a free pattern. and if you notice on ravelry there are about 150 other projects for this pattern. I am personally not a fan of the hearts panel in the center so I modified it to be in celtic weave stitch inspired by this project. This pattern is slightly challenging especially if you are a beginner crocheter. But if you are interested in upping your game in crochet I highly recommend this project.


Materials:
Caron simply soft off-white and blue mint.

The 4 panels are Bobble stitch, diamond stitch, celtic weave and basketweave stitch.


Finished dimensions: 36×46″

Edging: I did 4 rows of woven stitch, followed by shell stitch.


Have a great weekend!!

Fall Blanket Hexagons!

My first hexagon blanket in fall colors is here. For this blanket, I was looking for a nice blend of fall colors. I used 5 shades from yellows-reds and brown.

The tutorial for solid hexagons that I’ve used for this blanket is available for free here. This pattern is super straight forward and you can basically modify the pattern by changing the number of hexagons. I just went diagonally. and I really am liking the way the colors blend into each other. This pattern in great for gradients. You can use closely related colors here and they’ll have an awesome flow.

I made these hexagons and joined them as you go. I will be posting a tutorial for join as you go hexagons and solid squares soon. This join as you go was for the last round of the hexagon.

I do not have any edging for this blanket yet and I am having the hardest time deciding if I should or not. So for now there is no edging.

I did make a bunch of half hexagons for squaring off the edges.

pattern for half hexies:

Ch4, join in the round by a slip stitch

ch3 (first dc) , *2dc ch2* three times, dc and turn

ch3, *dc in same space, dc on the next 2 dc, dc in space, ch2* three times, dc and turn

ch3, *dc in same space, dc on the next 4 dc, dc in space, ch2* three times, dc and finish off

As I said before, the last round you join in its space as you are crocheting it.

I promise I’ll have a tutorial soon. 🙂

Sunburst Hexagon Crochet Blanket No. 4

This past week I have been working on  this super colorful crochet blanket. It has 5 colors and joining in white.

IMG_0448

After creating random squares on random granny square generator, I made all the rounds in three randomly chosen colors using this pattern. Finally, I joined them using continuous join as you go hexagon, the tutorial for this can be found here. I love continuous joining and this tutorial is really awesome. Saves a whole lot of time and ends to sew in.

Materials:

Caron Simply soft yarn in the colors:

white, Harvest red, Lemonade, Blue Mint, Watermelon, and Limelight.

Finished dimensions: 24X28”.

I didn’t do any edging on this blanket. My husband convinced me that the staggered edge looks good. Now, I think so too.
