Oh dear, I have had a lot of IT issues recently (laptop died) and so have not been able to show you progress on a number of my recent projects. This Cool Chunky Stripes Blanket was lovely and easy to make and uses the herringbone half treble (uk) stitch – I used this for my Aqua Chunky Cushion too and love the stitch definition. The pattern for this Cool Chunky Stripes Blanket can be found here.
I bought some cushion pads quite some time ago 30 x 50cm (12 x 20 inches) and had been dithering for ages in deciding what to do with them. I finally go round to making some covers to go over them with King Cole Cottonsoft DK. Find pattern/ details of this project here.
Apologies for the long silence. I have been working on several projects recently and have not got round to writing these up and sharing with you. I have now had the change to give you more details on I made this colour block blanket. Find details here.
I love playing around with my yarn pegs and coming up with different colour combinations.
See more about these rainbow colour schemes here.
I have just finished adding the tassels to this scarf. This was made for my daughter who requested a wide scarf. The pattern can be found here.
It is suitable for a beginner and the pattern can easily be adapted to whatever width and length that you desire.
Apologies, I have been delayed in updating my blog. I have been recently finished 2 or 3 different projects and have not had time to write them up on my blog.
I love the colours of this Magic Pink Granny Square Blanket. In fact, it was so popular on my instagram page that someone asked to buy it before I had it finished.
I have now written up the free patten here.
I have a been working on another couple of projects and will update you soon.
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.
