Oh hello lovelies!
It is such a beautiful day today and I’m in love… deeply madly crazy in love with my latest finished project… Are you ready to fall too? I’m sure you are 😉
Let’s have some close up pics …
I love love love this simple graphic square…I think it is simple but beautiful… and I love it even more because it is the fruit of my imagination… my own drawing… 🙂
and I love the whole result…the table runner in all its glory…all these bright and beautiful colors mixed together in a lovely patchwork…
I feel happy whenever I enter the sitting room 🙂
Now for the part you are all waiting for: The how to…
I crocheted this table runner with a thin cotton yarn called “Camilla 6/4” and a 2mm crochet hook. I made it by joining as I go the squares together in a randomly use of colors…
I drew for you my friend the graphic chart of this square… It is right here:
As you noticed, the joining part was made as-I-go with round 5 (in black in the chart) and it is done where I put the arrows…(Instead of the middle chain a slip joining stitch)
Each square was done in a different color and I made a very simple edging (1sc, 4ch, 1sc) all around the whole table runner…
I am in love with it (did I already told you that?? I don’t think so :D) and I think that this graphic square will be beautiful if used to make coasters, cushions or a summer blanket why not?
So, my lovely friend, I’ll have to leave you now with a last pic…
and wish you a wonderful day!
P.S: I draw all my graphic charts including this one using Corel Draw (a graphic design software) as many of you keep asking me 🙂
and one last thing: Some of you asks me if I can explain some of the charts with written words and I am so sorry about that but I just can’t do it sometimes… I am unable to do it 🙁 It is too difficult for me as I myself cannot follow an english written pattern 🙁 not yet! but one day… 😉
Kisses to all!
Helloooooo there! How are you?
I’ve been playing with my hook and some cotton yarn in order to make something for my sitting room table… a patchwork table runner…not too big… something simple… a very graphic square I draw and which I am very pleased with right now…
It is very simple and graphic and I kind of like that 😉 It remind me of my graphic design years in college 🙂
I am doing a lot of these squares right now and I’m gonna join them as-I-go…It will be very colorful but with a simple design… I’ll prepare a graphic pattern for it also…if you’re interested in making one too… this square can be used to make coasters, cushions and even summer blankets …why not 😉
On the other side, I’m spending a lot of my me-time in my craft room with my brushes and painting 🙂 Oh how I love that!!!!
I’ve spoiled myself with a set of new brushes and I am right now finishing a very old big painting I started before getting pregnant with baby Joe…yes, before 🙂 and that was long ago 😉
Here is a little peek …
It is too colorful …but I kind of like that 😉
I hope that you are making things that makes you happy today…
I am sending you kisses, hugs, sunshine and happy thoughts
Have a good day!
