Modern Crochet Rectangle

Over the last couple of weeks I have been working on another crochet rectangle design. I was inspired to create a modern crochet blanket and had a colour scheme in mind. I had some fun trying to modify my Rectangle Granny Design into something that looked contemporary. This is the result.

I was really pleased with how the rectangle design turned out, I will let you have the pattern free on this blog soon.

Once I have finished making all of the rectangles, then on to joining them. More updates soon (or check out my instagram page as some real-time updates are provided).

Hexagons and more…..

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 blanket made from different motifs and wanted to try something other than squares – so I went for Granny Hexagons.

I wanted the edges of the the blanket/throw to be straight (and not hexagon-shaped) so I had to work out how to make two different types of half hexagons as well as quarter hexagons. 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.

Hope to update more on these projects soon.

Granny Star

I have been playing around with a few different granny squares, motifs and blocks this week. I have been looking to make a granny star for a while as I love the visual effect. You will be able to find many different patterns and tutorials on the internet for granny squares. Like granny squares, everyone has their own favourite and different ways to make these.

If you are interested in how I have made my granny square please find the written pattern here.

I hope that you find it useful.
