Ripples of happiness

By | October 20th, 2011|Crocheted blankets, free patterns, Ripple, Uncategorized|94 Comments

Hello hello hello!

I’m slowly but surely progressing on my ripple and I thought about sharing with you the pattern I’m working on. It is a very old pattern from an old french magazine I found in my mother stash. And because the pattern is explained in french I decided to draw a graphic for you my friend !

The pattern is similar to Lucy’s one but it is more wavy. The concept is still the same… it is still  about rippling and rippling 🙂

How soothing it is to ripple…mmmh…a delicious feeling after a rough day 🙂

So, here it is:

First you have to make a chain multiple of 14 + 3… I advice you to make a small sample so you can try out the pattern and once you’re confident about it you’ll start with a longer chain for your future blanket to be…

So let’s start with a small sample…. always always always let it be a multiple of 14 + 3… This is the magical formula! Here it is 31 (14×2 + 3 = 31)

These are the first 2 rows… you continue with the others like for these first two …

and one last thing:  Always remember to crochet 3 treble in the last stitch of every row…

A very easy pattern to follow you’ll see…You have to try it to discover how simple it is …

and remember…I’m always ready to help if you have any question… 😉

Happy crocheting!


P.S: All my graphics are made using Corel Draw, a graphic design software!

Mosaic cushion

Hello !

I’ve been busy yesterday finishing the Mosaic cushion and writing down the graphic of its pattern.

As so many of you asked for it, I did manage some time to draw it for you ! (I could not resist 🙂 )

It is so simple, you will see, you can guess it by just looking at the pics 🙂

But before the graphic, lets have a look to the cushion 🙂 (I adore it)

This pattern is perfect for a baby blanket or another Giant granny 🙂 hehe

and the graphic made with Corel Draw:

A last pic before saying goodbye…

Thank you all again for being here 🙂

Have a lovely day!


P.S: To Julia: I crochet every day sometimes for only 10 minutes sometimes for a couple of hours! It depends 😉

ZiG ZaG Joining

By | August 25th, 2011|Crocheted blankets, free patterns, kaleidoscope blanket, Uncategorized|54 Comments

Well well well, it was such a pleasure reading all your sweet messages on my Kaleidoscope blanket! Thank you thank you ThAnK YoU 🙂

This is as promised, the ZIG ZaG Joining method…

Hope that my explanations will be as clear as possible for you to understand… I apologize for those of you who do not understand graphic patterns…this is my only way to explain crochet 🙁 sorryyyyyyyyy 🙁

So, let’s have a try, shall we?

To begin this is the graphic pattern of the small square:

and then lets take a look to the ZiG ZaG joining graphic:

The red graphic is for the joining …You have every time to make a double crochet in your first square, 2 chain and another double crochet in the second square in EXACTLY THE SAME PLACE YOU DID THE FIRST ONE IN YOUR FIRST SQUARE !

Once this simple thing is clear all will become very easy to follow… Always always make a dc in the first square, 2 chain followed by another dc in the second square in exactly the same place…

I suggest for you, as a trial,   to begin joining 9 squares to make a small blanket of 3×3 squares as in this pic:

You have always to work as follow : Join all the squares of your blanket horizontally (A then B) and after you’ve made all your horizontal joining, you join all your squares vertically (C then D)

This method (joining horizontally everything then vertically) will make the joining very fast…I took some pics to make it clearer for you…

Pic 1: Arrange the colors of your squares as you want them to be in your blanket … I made here 3 rows of 10 squares each (because I have a total of 30 colors )

Pic2: Begin the horizontal joining of row1 with row 2 and then row2 with row3…etc

Pic3: Continue joining row by row horizontally…until all rows are joined horizontally like in Pic4 below

Pic4: After all the rows are joined together horizontally, begin the vertical joining (here in this pic above, one vertical joining is done)

Pic5: All the rows have been joined horizontally and vertically…time to begin the edging 🙂 (which will be explained in my next post 😉 )

Hope it was easy to understand…when you just read this post you’ll feel a little bit confused maybe, the best thing to do is to take a hook and some yarn, make 9 small squares and try joining them …

Thank you for visiting today!

Sending you lots of love through this post 🙂
