crochet stitches


happy monday, happy new week!!!

it is so sunny today, it makes me feel good:)

look what i bought!

most of the patterns i use i find on the internet, in the archives on my computer or in my head, so i rarely print (which is also better for the environment) or buy a book with patterns.

i saw enthusiastic responses to this book and i had a gift card …. since friday this is my copy with 500 stitch patterns in it. 

complete book of crochet stitch design


under the book you can see the beginning of a new blanket, yes another blanket.

i have unraveled the squares pattern of the green and dots blanket, but more about that in another post. 



you can find the pattern for the squares here


see you soon!

  6. Hoi Andreé,
    Dat boek was ik ook al ergens tegen gekomen.
    Ik zet het op mijn verlanglijstje.
    Heb je de vierkanten van je groene deken van elkaar los gemaakt, of heb je de hele deken uitgehaald?
    Ik vind het zo’n prachtige deken!
    Ben benieuwd wat je er mee gaat doen / gedaan hebt.
    Groetjes, Estella

    • Hallo Estella,
      Nee hoor, de groene deken is nog intact, ik heb alleen ‘ontcijferd’ hoe ik de blokken heb gehaakt. Op dezelfde manier maak ik nu de zwarte blokken, het is een super simpel patroon, ik ga ze aan elkaar vastnaaien in plaats van haken. Het patroon voor de blokken kun je binnenkort op mijn blog vinden.
      Hoop dat het goed gaat met je.

  7. Oh that pattern looks lovely, that book looks really informative!!

  8. Mooi! Geniet van je boek.
    De groene blanket is super leuk.



  9. I can’t find the pattern for the crocheted black two tone bag that is with the WIP crochet scarf. I absolutely love it and would like the pattern. Can you help? Thank you.

    • Audrey,
      For that bag I don’t have a pattern, sorry. Patterns/tutorials I do have you can find under the button “my tutorials” in the dropdown menu.
      Thanks for visiting!

  10. i just stumbled across that book recently and it’s waiting at the library for me to borrow (i do that whenever possible so i can look before buying online). it sure looks promising from the cover! will you tell us what you think of it?

    that afghan is super cool!
