I have been working on something very quick and easy to make. This scarf is so satisfying to make and perfect the colder days. The stitch is Lemon Peel Stitch and uses a one row repeat, so is perfect for an easy and relaxing (and quick) project. See here for free pattern.
I loved making this blanket. It has a retro colour vibe which looked better and better as the throw grew. Please find the written details on how to make this here.
I added tassels to this throw to give it a boho feel and seems to finish this off nicely. This is the second throw where I have added tassels and now I want to add them to every blanket or throw.
My favourite thing to make is anything with granny squares in, but every now and then I need to do something different. I loved making this blanket in the Lemon Peel Stitch (sometimes called the Griddle Stitch). It has a lovely texture and is quick to work up. But best of all, it is super easy.
This stitch does not have big holes. It is versatile and can be used to make a variety of items (washcloths, scarves, animal blankets, baby blankets etc).
For written instructions on how to do the Lemon Peel Stitch please see here.
Apologies for the delay in publishing this, but I have finally finished writing up how I put my Granny Hexagons together to make a lovely throw.
Find the page for these details here.
Well I have finally finished my Granny Hexagon Blanket. As promised, I have now provided details on I make crochet Granny Hexagons, half hexagons and quarter hexagons – please find the pattern/details here.
My next task is to write up a few more details on how I put my Granny Hexagon blanket together. More updates soon.

I haven’t written a post for a while, apologies for this. I have been really busy working on some different projects, and also family life also was busy.
I thought I would give you little taster of what is coming on my blog shortly.
Granny Hexagons have been taking up a lot of my time lately. I basically wanted to make a Granny Square blanket but made up of Granny Hexagons. I have used Stylecraft Special DK, which can be purchased here.
I have had to work out how to make half a granny hexagon – and this is more complicated than it sounds because to have straight edges to this blanket there are two different types of half granny hexagons. Notice from the picture above that the half hexagons along the sides are going to be different from the ones at the top and bottom (which I have not done yet – you can see where these need to go by my stickers).
Anyway my plan is write this all up and have this on my blog shortly.
I have also worked on a simple granny square in between time, which requires a bit less thought. Again, I used Stylecraft Special DK, which can be purchased here.
Hope to update more on these projects soon.
This week I decided to work with some colour. I was travelling so I wanted something easy to do. I just love these colours. You can find out more about how to make this blanket here.
The patterns is a traditional granny square based on 6 rainbow colours.
My blanket finished 80cm x 80cm but you can adapt to how big or small you want it.
I have just started selling some of my newer crochet blankets in my Etsy shop and so far this is going well. I must say it has been lovely to have some fantastic feedback from happy customers and I am thrilled that my blankets are finding new homes.
I also donate some of my work to charity and this week I sent off 2 large batches of blankets to charities.
All the blankets are 100% Acrylic and washable, so they should be perfect to use in their new homes.
I love to crochet, but sadly I cannot keep all my work. So I am really happy that I can make these items with lots of care and dedication and then see them go off to their new owners. Best of all – I can keep making and designing!

This week I thought I would try to use up some of the greens and blues in my yarn stash. All were part-balls and left-overs from other projects. I am not a fan of mixing yarn brands, so I chose all Stylecraft Special DK.
See more details on how I made this blanket here.
This week I have been finishing my rectangle granny square blanket. I have had so many requests to write up the pattern for the start of the rectangle. Please find my tutorial here.
