Hello!

Thank you so much for your great response about the new shawl I’m crocheting at the moment!

It is a pure pleasure to make and I feel like it’s gonna be gorgeous!I-heart-you

This is as promised its diagram…

Sorry if I’m posting just a diagram for this as I don’t know how to explain patterns with words and I know that many of you keep asking me about written patterns…I really should learn how to do this stuff 😉 One day…

I-heart-you-diagram

The diagram is made of

– double tr (U.K terms) or tr (U.S terms) ou double brides (French terms)

– dc (U.K) or sc (U.S) ou maille serrees (French)

– chain stitch ou maille en l’air (French)

and you begin it from the bottom of the shawl.

I hope that the diagram is clear for you my friend…

For this shawl, I’m using a super soft yarn called Nako baby. It is a 50%acrylic 50%polyamid yarn and I’m crocheting it with a 3.75mm crochet hook.

Have to go now…

Kisses from the bottom of my heart!

P.S: I have some sort of spammy stuff on the blog with links everywhere and open windows that leeds you to nowhere…when this happens please try to click on the “to back” button so you can view the post. I’m trying to fix all these problems with hubby asap and asking for your patience… so sorry about that!

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 😉

table-runner-1

Let’s have some close up pics …

table-runner-4-close-up

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… 🙂

table-runner-5

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…

table-runner-6

I feel happy whenever I enter the sitting room 🙂

table-runner-7

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:

graphic square

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…

table-runner-8

and wish you a wonderful day!

Sucrette

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!

Hiding the yarn ends

By | March 15th, 2013|free patterns, granny squares, Hiding the yarn ends, Uncategorized|24 Comments

Hello hellooooo How are you sweet ladies around the globe?

1

No, this is not a new project on the go…this is just a granny square I’ve made specially for you for this post with a step by step pics to show you how I hide the yarn ends in my projects as many of you asked me already…Each round is made with a different colour…ladies, don’t be afraid anymore to use many colours in your projects, this is how you’ll proceed…very easy… I’ve made round 1 in purple…I closed it with a slip stitch and cut my yarn… 2

Now, I’ll hide the yarn ends with the same hook I’m using to crochet. Yes, with the same hook and as I go, round after round, I’ll hide the yarn ends…no needs for any needle here… I turn the round 1 to the back…

3

Now I insert the hook between the stitches of the same color on the back of my square…hook it and pull through…

4   5

and then cut the part that is left… 6

This is the back of my square…as neat as the front … now, let’s do the same steps for round 2 in teal… This is the front of my 2rounds-squares… 7

Let’s turn it on its back…Here we have two teal-yarn-ends to hide 8

We begin with the first one inserting the hook on the teal stitches… 9

Always always try to remember this simple rule: You hide the yarn end of color1 under the stitches of the same colour on the back of your project for a neat result. 10 11 12 13

You cut the first teal yarn end and you continue hiding the second one… 14

using the same technique…inserting the hook…pulling through the teal stitches of the back of your squares…then cutting the small part that is left… 15 16

Now look at the back of the two rounds square… 17

as neat as the front… 18

You’ll do the same steps for each and every round as you go 😉 simple no? 19 20

Here you are…with a neat granny square without any yarn ends to hide with a needle or with anything else… 21

Now you’ll not be afraid anymore to work with as many colours as you want … with this simple technique to hide your yarn ends as you go, after each round you’ll finish and with the same hook you’re crocheting with 🙂

Hope my instructions were clear for you as I’m not very used to explain with english…

Do not hesitate to ask any question you want…

Have a wonderful weekend my friend,

Kisses and hugs Sucrette

Classic square

Good morning!

How are you today?

This is, as promised, the graphic chart of the square of my actual wip blanket: “fall” in love.

classic granny

As you can see, the square is very simple and easy to make…You add on every round: 2dc, 1ch, 2dc in each corner…And with the last round (round4) you join the squares together (see the arrows).

I am enjoying too much this blanket…and loving how each square is joined to the others as-I-go…(You can learn more about this great method in the wonderful blog of Lucy here.)

I’ve made 4 rows till now:

What do you think? Do you love the autumn colors as much as I do?

Have to go now and take out all the Christmas decorations 🙁

Time flies…

Wishing you a wonderful week!

Kisses

Granny shawl

By | December 13th, 2012|free patterns, shawl, Uncategorized, wips|50 Comments

Good morning lovely ladies around the globe 🙂

How’s everything?

So, I started something for myself with the sooooo beautiful yarn Joumana sent me…(Joumana, with every stitch I make I think of you and thank you 🙂 )

You know something? I’ve never tried to crochet with something else rather than acrylic and cotton yarn 🙂 funny eh? and I am sooooo enjoying the softness of the alpaca yarn…will I become addicted? Hoping no 😉

I’m crocheting a granny shawl for myself like you already guessed from the title of the post…a big big granny shawl…big enough to wrap me completely 😀

Wanna see some pics?

This is the start of my granny shawl…

The pattern is very simple to follow…it is like crocheting a granny square cut in half 😉 .

and like all granny squares it is ADDICTIVE and easy and perfect to crochet with a baby, or watching T.V as you don’t need much concentration to make it…

This is the graphic of the shawl if you’re interested in making one for yourself or as a gift for someone special…

It is crocheted in rows.

I managed to add more rows before I wrote this post…This is my progress so far…

Yes it is very fast to crochet 😉

Would you join me in this new adventure? Hope that you will … so we can both wear our big and beautiful granny shawls and think about each others 🙂

Wishing you a wonderful day!

Big kisses

Sucrette

 P.S: “Love birds” the bedspread I was crocheting for our room is almost done…I am making right now its border…so suspect a tadaaaaa post very soon…it will be explosive 🙂

I am having some problems with the subscriptions and I know that many of you are not receiving e-mails notifications every time I write a new post…I am so sorry about that…I’ll try my best to fix this problem asap.
