Summer time ripple

By | August 5th, 2011|Crocheted blankets, free patterns, Ripple, Summer time blanket, Uncategorized|68 Comments

Good morning!

This is as promised the “how to” for “summer time” ripple blanket.

To begin, you have to make a chain : multiple of 11 + 4… I suggest, just to try out the pattern, to make as in the graphic here a chain of 37 ! ((3×11) +4 = 37) and when you try out and you’re ready to start you’ll make a much bigger chain as big as you want your blanket to be…

For Christina’s blanket I started with a chain of 114 (that is (10×11) +4 = 114) which is large enough for a six years girl blanket 🙂

This is a close-up for the valley 😉 (leaving 2 stitches of the previous row and crochet in the 3d one)

and this is a close-up of the mountain 😉 (working 3 treble in the same stitch of the previous row)

It is very very easy to follow…you’ll see when you’ll try…

You have only to begin with the correct number of chain (always a multiple of 11 + 4) and follow the graphic chart…

Happy crocheting 🙂

Many of you keep asking me about the software I use to draw my graphics, it is called “Corel Draw” it’s a graphic design software I used to work with at school 🙂

Love at first sight hexagon

By | April 13th, 2011|Crocheted blankets, free patterns, Hexagons, Uncategorized|63 Comments

Good morning sweeties,

It is so great to have you here today…

This is the pattern of “love at first sight” and I must warn you: This is really a love-at-first-sight-kind-of-pattern…You’ll be hooked and totally, deeply taken by it…

It is such a pleasure to crochet and the result is wonderful…specially when you make the last round in black (or it can be in another color) to join as-you-go 🙂

So here is the graphic pattern:

As you noticed I made the last round (the one you join with the hexagons) with half treble … so the black color will not be too much outstanding…

I crocheted first 9 hexagons to try out the pattern…

For this blanket I will work with 26 different colors and the black…Every time I make a blanket I use the same method to crochet and use equally all the colors…If I have 26 colors I make a series of 26 hexagons at a time…26 after 26 after 26…etc

I make first the first round of 26 hexagons: one with every color…

and then I crochet the 2nd round using the 26 colors again…one 2nd round with every color… (putting aside the colors used already)

and then I crochet also the 3d round…one 3d round with every single color…This will lead you to 26 “unique” hexagons 🙂

This method is fast and simple…it saves time and allows you to not have one color used more often than the others…

It will not take out the pleasure of crochet…but it will guarantee you a wonderful result without wasting time to choose the colors and think what color you have to crochet next and what color you did not try yet…It will make you a “blanket machine” 😉 (I love this expression 🙂 hehe ) a blanket machine who enjoys a lot crocheting 🙂

Thank you all for your wonderful comments on my posts… They bring every morning sunshine to my day 🙂

Happy crocheting !

Tissue box

By | March 27th, 2011|Crocheted tissue box, free patterns, granny squares, Uncategorized|17 Comments

Hello my friend,

This is for you today how I made the tissue box cover…Hope you understand my charts 😉 (I use Corel draw to make them, it is a graphic design software)

To begin you have to make a small classic granny square crocheted with 2 rounds with the same color…

and then crochet a second square and join it to the first as you go, like on this pic:

and then you continue making squares and joining them as you go as this pic:

50 granny squares in total joined as you go….choosing randomly the colors 😉

That’s it my dear 🙂

You can also decorate your tissue box by crocheting a round of dc and then another round of small shells on the top of your box…


Thank you all for your visit and your sweet messages here! I really really LOVE reading them,

Have a great sunday 🙂
