Finishing the Mini Crochet Squares Blanket

A few weeks ago I posted details on how to make the Mini Crochet Squares and a tutorial on how to join them using the join-as-you-go method. As this design was created to be used as a perfect stash-buster – have now finished a blanket using these squares and have managed to use up a bit of my yarn stash.

I am really pleased with the result – 196 squares in a 14 by 14 formation. I have also added a really nice Half-Treble V-Stitch Border onto it too.

Pastel Tiles Blanket – a Granny Squares and Granny Rectangles Project

I loved making this Pastel Tiles Blanket. It incorporates both Granny Squares and Granny Rectangles made in pastel colours. These are then joined using a contrasting colour and the effect is fantastic. The design incorporates my new and improved Granny Rectangle pattern (the ‘Even Better’ Granny Rectangle).

Colourful Crosses – Granny Square Variation

I wanted to share my latest project with you – the working name is ‘Colourful Crosses’, and is a Granny Square Variation. Over the last few weeks I have been working on a bright and colourful project. I needed something relatively portable to be able to take the project on my summer holiday. The colours are a mix of reds, pinks, oranges and yellows and are wonderfully uplifting.

Granny Squares are so addictive, and this variation was so aesthetically pleasing. The squares are worked in 3 colours in 3 different stages.

The first stage produces some beautiful little sweetie-like squares.

The second stage:

The third stage adds a little twist – some crossed stitches:

The best thing about these squares is that they turn out wonderfully ‘square’ and they are completely reversible.

I have decided to join the squares by sewing them, and am so pleased with how it works up so neat and still completely reversible. Not quite finished doing yet, and then on to a border.

Full pattern is to follow shortly.

The Spring Square – a modern variation of the Granny Square

I have been wanting a project to use up my yarn stash, and this Granny Square variation is perfect. Each Spring Square requires approximately 7g of DK yarn. These 4 different squares are all based on the same pattern, just with different colour schemes.

The squares can be used for a many different projects – here I have made 4 coasters. But I also have been working on a larger project using these squares…..more about this soon.

Granny Squares Wall Hanging.

This project was a bit of fun – it was good to try something different and I had some odds and ends of 4 ply cotton that I wanted to use up. This is also the first wall-hanging that I have ever made, and I really just winged it. It is not perfect, but thought I would share the process with you.
