Crochet Patchwork Squares

I have been so desperate to make a crochet blanket made up of different blocks of colour, but a design that does not involve individual squares or Granny Squares. I am so happy that I have finally worked this out, and have come up with this crochet patchwork squares design. Here is a little taster of what I have achieved so far. Remember you can get latest updates on my Facebook page and my Instagram.

The free pattern is now available here.

How to make the Modern Crochet Rectangle

I have had lots of requests for the details on how to make my new Modern Crochet Rectangle. You can now find the details here.

These are a wonderfully easy and modern version of the Rectangle Granny and an interesting variation of the traditional Granny Square.

I have finished my project using these Modern Crochet Rectangles and have nearly finished writing up the full pattern details, and so these are coming soon.

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I originally made this scarf at the beginning of the year, but now I have finally got round to writing the details up on my blog.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.

The full pattern details are here.

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.

Joining Granny Squares – join-as-you-go

When you have made a series of granny squares, you have to decide how to join your squares. You can do this by sewing or crocheting your squares together. My favourite method is the join-as-you-go method, which means a square is joined to adjacent squares whilst working the final round of the Granny Square.

My guide to how I do this can be found here.
