This page outlines how to add tassels to your crochet blanket. Adding tassels to your knitted or crochet blankets can really finish it off nicely. I have done this on several of my blankets and throws. This is a quick and simple tutorial guiding you through the steps to make these.

Champagne Crochet Scarf – easy to make crochet scarf

I originally made this scarf at the beginning of the year, but now I have finally got round to writing the details up on my blog. It is a wonderfully easy crochet scarf to make. The two row repeat creates a lovely stitch definition. The pattern can be easily adapted to make it longer or shorter and thinner or wider. This is suitable for beginners. I have called this my Champagne Scarf as this was the name of the yarn colour.

Modern Crochet Rectangle

Over the last couple of weeks I have been working on another crochet rectangle design. I was inspired to create a modern crochet blanket and had a colour scheme in mind. I had some fun trying to modify my Rectangle Granny Design into something that looked contemporary. This is the result.

I was really pleased with how the rectangle design turned out, I will let you have the pattern free on this blog soon.

Once I have finished making all of the rectangles, then on to joining them. More updates soon (or check out my instagram page as some real-time updates are provided).

I have had such fun with this project. I was inspired by a patchwork quilt design and wanted to see if I could replicate the rustic feel with crochet Granny Squares. I chose some wonderful Stylecraft Special DK colours and had such fun creating different colour Granny Squares.

I had a layout in my mind and wanted the Granny Squares to be ‘spun’ round 90 degrees. This also meant that I had to make done quarter and half Granny Squares too.

My one word of warning about this project is the number of ends to sew in – there were loads!

I hopefully will update on the finished throw soon – I am currently writing up details of the design. But if you can’t wait….then please visit my instagram profile, as I have posted a picture.
