Crochet Ripple Blanket No. 3

Hello People around the world,

Here is the blanket I made in Australia. I made this for a friend. I have a couple more lined up which I have to get to quickly. This has been my favorite pattern and its been so long since I worked on this pattern. It feels amazing to have been working on this.

Let me give you some deets on this blanket:

Pattern: Attic24 Neat ripple pattern. This is a free pattern that comes with a tutorial (for real!! If you are a beginner crocheter you can try this beauty).

Materials:

Lincraft double knitting and esther yarn

For the DK yarn I used US size H crochet hook and for the esther yarn I used US size G just because the yarn thickness was a little different. That made the blanket a little uniform in tension.

Finished dimensions: 32X40”

I also personalized this blanket using the crochet alphabets pattern by Moogly which is also a free resource.

Have a great crafty weekend.

Ocean Crochet blanket and more…

This last couple weeks I have been working on my ocean Blanket which is inspired from my last visit to Florida Keys.

It has colors of blues and greens together. I love how calming it was to crochet this blanket and some charity hat knitting while I prepared to defend my Ph.D. thesis.

A couple of days ago, I defended my thesis and now I am on the other side of graduate school. Such an incredible experience. Made so many new friends. A new family in Indianapolis.

So as I move to a new beginning. I have to let go of my creations in the US (I don’t have any room to carry so much yarn and blankets). I am doing some charity knitting. I made this oceans moss stitch blanket for that.

Have a great crafty long weekend everyone.

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!!
