This was a birthday present for my father. As I was busy with the blanket, I wondered if it was a little too young for a 40 something man, but it wasn’t. I had only 3 months in which to make it in and I was amazed at how I managed that. I guess when you have limited time, one can do the impossible with a little motivation.
I made over 1530 solid granny squares to complete this blanket and finished size is suitable for a 3/4 bed.
These are the fabric squares that I am attempting to join together with crochet. I have done blanket stitch around the squares. I am not sure if I should piece and pack them together so they fit like a puzzle, or should I make them all the same size and then sew them together. I am stuck. Any suggestions?
I am a person who never seems to complete a project. I like to start something and then while I am busy with that project I see another one that looks interesting. So I leave the first project and start on the new one. Here is all the projects I have made and still making over the days…just to show a few.
This scarf-necklace is very easy to make and so quick.
Pattern: 1 ball of 80g wool in colour of choice.
Chain 10, sc in chain across, turn, and sc across. Keep sc until the piece measures 4cm from top to bottom. Finish off.
With the remaining wool, chain as many chains as you can get, join to the beginning of the starting chain made. Now all you have to do is loop the long chain piece until it is all looped up. It doesn’t have to be equally wound up.
Take the little crocheted piece made at the beginning, the little swatch-like piece, and sew it over the looped chains to hold them all in place and to hide the join of the chains.
Viola! Completed scarf-necklace.
I was asked to make the tiniest baby booties ever. They were made for a set of newborn twins…Pretty cute I think.
