Stylecraft bloggers tour 2016

By | October 28th, 2016|colors and yarns, stool, stylecraft yarn, Uncategorized|19 Comments

Hello, I am very happy to be part of this year stylecraft special aran and chuncky bloggers tour ? 

The colors are just wonderful and when I received them I couldn’t pick  a project to use them. They are fresh, beautiful smooth and soft to touch. I received the chuncky pack ?

Aren’t they gorgeous ? 

Now what did I do with them??? Tadaaaa

 A cover for a blue wood stool I had at home ?

For the cover I used this simple yet effective pattern that tou can find here ?

Alternating the granny colored rounds with the parchment small sc rounds ?

I loved how it turned out…

The more I was crocheting the more I was in love ❤

There is something magical with the chunky yarn… it is fast ? and it finishes quickly ? and the result is always lovely!

Once you reach the corners of your upper stool face, you continue without increasing in the corners (see the blue round in the above pic) so that the crochet don’t stay flat and take the 3D shape of the stool…

For the last round I chose to make a simple edging with picots ❤ I love picots ❤ They are my favorite for edging ❤

I really enjoyed making this cover… and love how it turned out ❤

Don’t forget to visit the lovely blog of the talented Sandra tomorrow to see what she has done with her pack ?

Hello my friend,

I finished yesterday a new baby blanket: the box of sweets blanket.

This blanket is for a baby girl due in February ?

I love how simple the design is and yet so effective.


I love the colors and the little colorful bits of round4 in each square.

I love the edging and the little picots.

It is crocheted with stylecraft special DK and a 3.5mm hook.

I hope it will be well cherished by both the baby and her mom for many years to come ?

A granny squares love story ❤

By | August 10th, 2016|Crocheted blankets, granny squares, stylecraft yarn, Uncategorized, wips|8 Comments

Hello,

I am a granny squares lover. They are my favorite to crochet. I can’t resist them ?

While cleaning my craft room on Sunday I found 23 squares crocheted long time ago with dk yarn. Oh joy! It was the perfect timing for such a discovery ?

21 small and 2 big squares joined with light cream ❤ I couldn’t wish better…

So I decided to make the smaller ones as big as the biggest while waiting for my yarn delivery to finish my harlequin blanket (see previous post) and finish one or two squares per day…

I am crocheting with Stylecraft special dk, Stylecraft life dk and the new Stylecraft Batik. I love mixing these yarn together and the effect of the plain colors next to the batik ones is just beautiful ❤

Right now I am planning to make the 23 squares big and continue on crocheting 10 rounds squares because the effect is soooo soothing and calming on these summer evenings…

And who knows…maybe… I will be able to make a winter bedspread out of these big squares.. it will be fantastic and I am already imagining it on my bed…mmmmmh ❤

Wishing you a beautiful day my friends,
Love

The stained glass baby blanket 💙

Hello,

I enjoyed very much posting yesterday from my phone that I decided to do it frequently ? I will try to update you with my latest makes as much as I can.

Today I will show you a blanket I’ve made recently for my cousin’s baby boy due in November ?

I really really love granny squares. It is always a pleasure for me to crochet them and I am never afraid of the result. They are always beautiful. They have a vintage feel I adore. So many childhood memories…

This one is crocheted with Stylecraft special dk and Stylecraft life dk with a 3.5mm hook. I love its fresh colors and its stained glass look ❤

It measures approximately 75 x 90 cm

It is flying from Lebanon straight to the US where I am sure it will be cherished by both the baby and his mum ?

Wishing you a wonderful weekend,

Love
