Crochet bold stripes Mini blanket

This is a next bold stripe blanket. I am in love with this pattern and can’t seem to help myself but work on it. I have loads of color ideas for this one. This is a mini blanket in purple. It is the same color trend as before but in shades of purple.

This is the link to the previous blanket in shades of Blue and where you can find the pattern. This is essentially a moss stitch in crochet, which is super simple and super fast.

 


Materials:
Caron Simply soft yarn in the colors:
Passion, Grape, Orchid, Grey heather, and charcoal heather.
Finished dimensions – 11×17″
This blanket is now available on etsy.

Have a great weekend guys!

Lace knitted scarf

This is my first lace knitting project ever. I loved knitting an intricate pattern. It is amazing to see the difference blocking makes on lacy patterns.

This pattern is available on ravelry.  I modified the pattern a little bit and knitted (even if it said purl) through on the right side and purled through the wrong side. It made my life easier so I could knit while watching television. 😉

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.

Knitted chevron blanket no. 5 – off-white, grey black and maize

Here I am working on my chevron again! Have I already told you how much I love this pattern a million times.

No wonder I’ve made five blankets from this pattern. I usually work this pattern in a gradient and a contrast color. I used the same technique this time except I used neutral colors but it looks so beautiful. Absolutely love the way it has turned out. It brings out the Black (I know right, you can use black in a blanket) so well. this is the first time for me using black in a blanket.

Materials:

Caron simply soft yarn in colors of off-white, grey heather, black and autumn maize.

Edging: I gave a special yet simple crochet edging with one round of double crochet and one round of single crochet in the back loops in off-white color.
