hello, hope all is well with you?!
spring still isn’t here alas but storm, rain and sometimes beautiful sunshine that clears up my mood.
very small blanket
last week i suddenly had much time to crochet and i found some variegated yarn of red, orange and pink. i bought 2 balls, not many, because the yarn felt unpleasantly, but i really liked and like the color mix. it doesn’t show well on the pictures but it is a mix of red, yellow/orange and pink.
i made a very small blanket, it measures about 60 x 60 cm, with a row of yellow teeth all around it.
the blanket is a large version of this square (free pattern) and the row is made of yarn from my stash and you can make it as follows:
- row 1. attach a second color yarn to any 1-ch space (except a corner space), then make 1 sc in same space, 3 ch, ** 1 sc in next 1-ch space, 3 ch **, repeat this all around the square, but in the corner spaces you make 1 sc, 3 ch, 1 sc all in the same space, join in first sc (remove the attachment stitch when you weave in the yarn ends).
- row 2. the ‘teeth’: slip stitch to first 3-ch space and make 1 sc in space, * 3 ch, draw up a loop in 2nd and draw up a loop in 3rd ch from hook, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook, 1 sc in same space, 1 sc in next space, repeat from * until end of row.
- weave in yarn ends. done!
after the blanket is washed, it turned out very soft. more info about the yarn here.
soft green and white square project
my intention is to make a cover for an oblong cushion with these off-white with soft green squares. at this moment i have 21 squares done and 21 centers, not quite finished but already well on the way.
last but not least my opaline blanket is finished and i must admit i gave up my plans to decorate it. i tried and tried but plain and simple is what i like most. so, no decoration and here are a few pictures for you to see how the finished blanket looks like.
that is it for today, will join ginny’s yarn along at small things
