New Projects

I'm wishy-washy...somewhat. I go back and forth between my crochet and my PC Gaming. They both are my hobbies.

I've collected some yarn since my last post. Trying to keep it organized and accessible is a chore in itself.
Above is a photo of my collection. You can see some afghans started. The red/pink/white one is one that I'm almost finished with.

This afghan is actually a color variation of this one:
Satin Spring Lacy Ripples on I love that it's ripple, but not traditional ripple.

Typically, I use Caron Simply Soft yarn for my projects. I love how soft it is, and it's easy to work with- being I'm a novice crocheter. Recently, I took advantage of a sale at Joanns and decided to try Bernat Silk yarn. I have fallen in love! It's just as soft and easy to use as Caron Simply Soft, but there are more colors and tones to choose from with Bernat. The skeins are smaller, but I'm sure it's worth it. Here is a photo of a new granny square quilt I'm making with the Bernat yarn I picked up:

The green, amber, and cream are all Bernat. I had the skeins laying beside a blue skein of Caron Simply Soft, and it caught my eye at how well the colors went together. So I threw the blue into the makeup of the granny squares.

That's it for now. Happy Hooking!

Perfect Pot Holders

When it comes to crocheting practical items, potholders are a popular go-to! Make these simple crochet potholders using my easy pattern! I make mine double-thick using the overcasting stitch. Made with cotton yarn. This pattern may be somewhere else on the internet, in a different context, but here is mine for the way I make my pot holders.

Ch 27 Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and sc in each ch across. Ch 1, turn
Row 2: sc in 1st sc, *hdc in next sc, sl st in next sc*, repeat * to * across, sc in last sc, ch 1 turn

Row 3: sc in 1st sc, *hdc in next sl st, sl st in next hdc*, repeat * to * across, sc in last sc, ch 1, turn
Repeat rows 2 and 3 until piece is square. Make two and then using a steel yarn needle and the same yarn used for making them, combine them using an overcasting stitch.


A New Year And A New Pattern!

Soft Bobbles Baby Blanket aka Effortless Baby Blanket

Crochet baby blankets are very popular and there are so many out there! Here's a little pattern for you to whip up for the newborn in your life. This pattern is very simple and very easy to make.

There are many on the web that are very similar to this with soft cluster stitches and thus is how I got my inspiration to make my own! I actually used a dish cloth pattern and turned it into a baby blanket. The slanted double crochet clusters make for a weighted blanket with soft bobbles. At first glance, the blanket seems complex but it's really super easy! Make one in beautiful baby blues or choose your own color palette!

I'm not perfect at making crochet patterns but I hope all the information any crocheter would need is in here!

Light & Lacy Crochet Baby Blanket

Baby pink, sage green and a soft cream come together to make a delightful crochet baby blanket. I may have put too many stitches on the sides because it made for a ruffled border, which is fine because I think it looks cute that way! The pattern is quite easy!

Create this light-weight, wonderful crochet blanket in a matter of hours! Slanted shell clusters with small blocks of double crochets in a lacy form make this a super easy blanket to whip up! Use it was a great tummy-time blanket or make it longer for the perfect lounge chair lapghan on a cool Summer night! You can make it in the colors shown here, or use your favorite "cake" yarn for non-stop crocheting fun!
