Strawberry Candy Squares

I love this blanket and it definitely one for me to keep. I love the wonderful bright and cheerful colours. Best of all, it matches my new sofa perfectly. The blanket is based on the traditional Granny Square, which is a firm favourite of mine. A total of 81 squares are joined using the wonderful red joining colour. You can easily make the blanket bigger or smaller by adjusting the number of squares you make. I added some tassels in each corner to give it boho vibe, but this is optional. You can find more details and the free pattern here.

Cool Chunky Stripes

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.

Magic Pink Granny Square Blanket

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.

Lemon Peel Stitch

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).
