For Granny Square Day 2021 I have written up this very simple Granny Square variation. You can find the free pattern here. This is a really lovely opportunity to play around with colour combinations.
This is a lovely beginner blanket. Full pattern can be found here.
This week I have been using up some of my cotton 4ply yarn. The yarn that I used is Scheepjes Catona. The balls are 25g, but had been partly used for other projects. I cannot remember the colour names as the yarn labels have all fallen off. It is a good opportunity to have some colourful fun.
I used a 2.5mm hook to make these tiny squares. They are based on the Granny Square but have been adapted. This is the first round, before I tied the ends in. Each square is about 1.5cm wide.
This is after the second round.
I am planning to make something which requires the squares to be tight and quite rigid, hence the 2.5mm hook and the changes that I made to patterns so that the stitches are close together and the holes are small. Not quite sure how many rounds to add, but have the finished project all planned.
Full pattern coming shortly.
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 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.
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 love these Stylecraft Chunky yarn colours together and they work up well in cushion cover. The chunky yarn seems to give a beautiful stitch definition and seems to work perfectly with the herringbone half treble stitch.
Find the full pattern here.
This pattern is for a 50cm x 50cm cushion but can easily be adapted to whatever size cushion you desire. It is super simple to make. Suitable for a beginner.
I used a 6mm hook.
This weekend I finished my stacks of pastel rainbow granny squares. I made a total of 30 squares.
My intention was always to join with grey, but I did suddenly wonder whether I should go for white or cream. However I stuck to my original plan – and I am really happy with it.
I am using the ‘join-as-you-go’ joining method.
Hopefully, I will finish joining the squares today and then can get onto the border.
I mentioned previously that I wanted to use the pastel rainbow colours for a new project – so I played around with these colours, making granny squares
The colours are Stylecraft Special DK: Candyfloss, Apricot, Lemon, Spring Green, Sherbet and Wisteria.
Looking forward to showing you more of this project – I am planning to write this in a bit more detail soon for those who would find this useful.
