Hello!

The title of that post could be the bedspread tadaaaa but I will not make a proper tadaaa post now. I will leave it for later.

The first bedspread is done. And it is beautiful. Really beautiful.

1

But it needs one more round to add to the edging. A round not in grey.

3

But I will not do it now. I need to finish the second bedspread (yes they are 2) and then make a proper edging for both and a proper tadaaa post for both too. Because they will live in the same room on twin beds ♥

2

I love the simplicity of this plain design. I love how the corners make shapes when joined together. I simply love it ♥

You can find a pattern for both the square and the joining method here.

4

Now I started the second one. Same design. Same colors. Same yarn (Stylecraft special dk and stylecraft life dk) and same love ♥

And I started a ripple blanket too ♥ I have a really really big stash of aran yarn and had some days ago a ripple envy ♥

5

A very big colorful ripple (one color by row) to keep me busy this coming winter. Want to join me? I will be hooking this blanket along with the second bedspread.

6

I will be using all the colors of my stash even the ones that I don’t really love. Not very sure about the result but a little voice in my head keeps saying yes to me.

7

And I must confess that even though I hold my breathe every time I add a new color, I am loving it more and more ♥

The pattern I am using is my loving ripples of happiness and you can find it here. So come on! join me! Let’s destash! Let’s create something beautiful from our leftovers. A rainbow of beautiful ripples ♥ Let’s hook together during the cold months this soothing colorful blanket 🙂 I will be really really happy if you join me!

8

And I am still knitting my second trendy chale. It made me very happy to see that some of you joined me in this knitting project. I love my first trendy chale* and wear it every day. Can’t wait to finish this second one too.

*All about my trendy chale in this post 😉

Have to leave you now…

Wishing you a really really lovely day ♥

Stay safe ♥

Morning lovelies!

I finished my blue shawl last week. It was a lovely shawl, easy pattern to follow and a wonderful yarn to crochet with…

Some infos about this shawl

♥ Yarn: Debbie bliss baby cachmerino blue (About 9 x 50g with the fringes )

♥ Hook: 3.5 mm

♥ Pattern: The pattern is by mypicot.com You can find it if you google: mypicot 10007 shawl. I followed the exact chart but did not crochet the fringes on the sides. Instead I crocheted 5ch 😉

7

The first bedspread I am crocheting for my girls room is mostly done too. I still have 18 squares to add and an edging of course 🙂 I am totally completely in love with it ♥

8

and I am already planning the second one 🙂 Grannies… yes… my eternal love ♥

*The yarn I am using for both bedspread is Stylecraft special DK and Stylecraft life DK*

9

And I am also knitting. I want to finish my “trendy chale” before the cold. I love the color sooo much. It is the burnt orange of the Debbie bliss cashmerino aran and the needles 8mm 🙂 The “trendy chale” is a triangular very simple shawl and you increase just one stitch in each row. I love the simplicity of the design and the warm and snuggly look of the final shawl ♥

10

And I am still into knitted beanies. I am loving the chunky look of them knitted with chunky yarn. Here I am using the drops andes yarn ♥

That’s all my friends! All about my actual creative projects ♥

Stay safe, take care of yourself and see you very soon 😉

Much love,

Sucrette

The Stylecraft secret project ♥ A granny scarf

By | October 1st, 2015|"done", colors and yarns, granny squares, scarf, stylecraft yarn, Uncategorized|12 Comments

Hello,

1

This little blog of mine was very lucky to be picked up between the blogs that are part of the Stylecraft blog tour. Do you remember the competition that Stylecraft held to add a new colour to their range? Well they made a pack of 10x50g of beautiful colours (the 10 finalists of the competition) and decided to send it for free for crochet and knitting bloggers around the world to try out the new colors….

I am very excited and very happy today to show you what I did with these wonderful colors…

1'

A scarf… a granny scarf in these beautiful DK shades… Do you like it?

1''

I did it for my oldest daughter and now my youngest wants one 🙂

2

I am a granny squares lover and with a pack of 10 x 50g I was not sure I could make a blanket so I made granny squares and turned them into a scarft 🙂 Simple but simple is the best ♥

3

I left the egg blue aside for the joining (the winner) and made one granny round with each of the 9 other shades. and then round two with each of the 9 left shades and then round 3 etc etc

4

At the end I’ve had 9 “unique” squares of 6 rounds each 🙂 and I joined them as I go with a last round in the egg blue 🙂

For the square’s pattern, click HERE ♥

and for the joining method, click HERE5

Once joined together, I found that the scarft was a little bit short if turned two times around the neck so I’ve made a 10th square and joined it to the others 🙂

6

So, my scarft was made finally with 10 squares (of 7 rounds each) joined together with the 7th round in blue.

7

Then I made 14 little circles. To make a circle I crocheted 12 tr in a circle of 4 chain.

8

And with the joining color I added these little circles to the scarf. I crocheted 1sc, 5 ch then added the first circle to the chain with a slip stitch then 5 ch, then 1sc (on the scarf)

9

then 5 ch, then the second circle, then 5ch, 1sc etc etc

10

and I added 7 little circles to one side of the scarf…

11

and the other 7 to the other side of the scarf…

12

and it was done 😉 My daughter loves it and so do I 🙂 Now, I have to make a second one for my youngest girl 🙂

14

These new colors are simply fantastic. I felt in love with them as soon as I saw them (specially the mustard yellow one so warm and beautiful ♥) and you know what? You can win your own pack! Yes your own pack of these beauties!! Because my friend there is a GIVEAWAY of this pack during each day of the blog tour and a pack to win EACH DAY! ISN’T THIS FABULOUS???
