Can’t wait to see what you have to share….
This year for my temperature blanket, I am doing weekly blocks. This way it is easier to carry with me and I like making blocks. Also as there are 52 weeks in the year which won’t work for a blanket, I am going to add another 2 blocks for Easter and Christmas. That will be a perfect number to make a nice sized blanket.
I have 5 weeks done in the picture, a bit behind in weeks, and I am going to add a white boarder around each one. And I am going to use the join-as-you-go method.
I will post a picture of a completed block as soon as I have done one.
I am making slow progress on my yo-yo blanket. It is pretty simple to make and uses such a little wool.
5ch, join to form a ring. 3ch, 15 dc into the ring. join to the top of ch3. Slip stitch the circles together as you work. I slst 4 rings together with 4dc between the slst.
Chain necklace? Are you trying to be crazy? Well not really, you see this is not the typical chains that one uses to chain a bike to the pole or the chain that is used to anchor things, this is crochet chains.
This necklace is very simple to do and any beginner can give it a try. All you need to know is how to chain, slip stitch and single crochet. Don’t worry you only have to do a little single crochet not that much and I will help you along. I have YouTube tutorials for you if you are a left-handed beginner: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4P9NmCnhfHGai1iq9L3fwQ
Hook and wool of choice. No gauge is used in this pattern but the larger the wool skein or more grams the thicker and longer your necklace will be.
Start by chaining 8, in second chain from the hook, single crochet across. (7sts).
Chain 1, single crochet across the stitches to the end. Repeat this row 6 more times. You should have 8 rows done in total. Finish off leaving a 30cm end.
Now for the necklace part and it happens to be the easiest part.
Chain until you have no wool left. Just keep chaining.
When you have run out of wool, finish off. Take the first chain and tie it to the last chain made. You should have a HUGE huge loop. Now loop the huge loop as many times as you can around your elbow and over your palm. You can do the loops looser than that or slightly tighter. These multiple loops will for the necklace ‘chains’. When you are unable to loop anymore then just secure it, we will be covering that area so it doesn’t matter how you do that. Take the little single crochet square you made at the beginning, and fold it over your join made on the chains, sew up the side seam and trim any ends you might have.
Viola you made your chain necklace!
If you get stuck or you are unsure if you are doing it right, email me firstname.lastname@example.org and I will assist in anyway I can.
These bags are so useful!! I am using one of them to hold soft toys! One can use them as a grocery bag, or even to hold your large veggies – pumpkins, squash and/or potatoes.
It is very easy to make these bags, all you need is know how to crochet a flat circle, and chain and single crochet. I used a 12mm hook and XL Chunky wool.
