Heavenly Blue Crochet Placemats


Heavenly Blue Crochet Placemats

Heavenly Blue Crochet Placemats
Named after the Heavenly Blue Morning Glory flower! Spring is upon us and I thought this was the perfect new pattern to share! I really felt the blue and yellow of these crochet placemats matched the beautiful blue morning glory with a little yellow in the center. 

For this pattern, I simply used the stitch from the blanket here on my site called Block Party. I used three colors, but arranged them differently.

Heavenly Blue Crochet Placemats

5mm/H8 crochet hook
1 skein each of three colors
Yarn Needle

For the colors in my placemats- I used Red Heart Lemon, White and a Hobby Lobby ILTY blue. You can use Red Heart Blue in it's place!

The placemat measures 12" x 16". To adjust for your own desired size, the stitch multiples is 6 plus 5 for base chain. Gauge is 1" across 3 dc.

Ch 53

Row 1: 1 dc in 4th ch from hook, 1 dc in next ch, *ch 3, sk next 3 ch, 1 dc in each of next 3ch, repeat from * across to end 
You'll end with the final repetition of  1 dc in 3 ch.

Row 2: ch 3, sk next 3 dc, *working over next ch 3 space, put 1 dc in each dc two rows below
(Note: at start of blanket, you'll be putting the 3 dc into the foundation ch)
Be sure to use both loops of the dc. 
ch 3, sk 3 dc, repeat from * to the end of the row- you'll end with a ch 3, 
Put 1 sc in top of turning ch. You may be tempted to do a dc in here, but it's better if you do sc

This is where you'll want to change color.

Row 3: At this point, I would normally only ch 2. That's how my tension works for me. Test it for your own workmanship. Otherwise, ch3, sk 1st stitch.
Working over ch3sp put 1 dc in each of skipped dc two rows below, * ch 3, sk 3 sts, working over next ch3sp put 1 dc in each of skipped dc two rows below, repeat from * across

The piece is made by repeating rows 2 and 3, but you'll be doing it row 3, then 2 one color, then change, and repeat row 3, then row 2, and so forth. 

I put my Lemon Yellow yarn in at the 2nd row, 7th row and 12th row. The placemat is a total of 16 rows.

For finishing, when you begin row 16, you're going to do sl st in next 3 dc rather than chaining 3 and skipping them. Then do your normal 3 dc in the 3 dc two rows below. I did not make a border. I was satisfied with the outcome as is!

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!

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!
