African Flower Pattern. I’ve gotten so many compliments, questions, and pattern requests lately about the motif up there in the center of my blog header that I thought I better get a post up about it. Some of you commented that it looks a little like the African Flower motif. Well you are correct! It is the African Flower motif … kinda. What I mean by that is it is only the first 3 rounds of the traditional African Flower pattern.

I left off the later rounds that turn the motifs into hexagons because … well … to be honest, since I just did a hexagon blanket I wanted to do a something a little different and I thought they looked pretty neat like this. And, since I am making this as coverlet for my bed and not really an afghan, I really didn’t need the coverage that the later rounds fill in. Want to give it a go?

Special Stitches: {Lily Hexagon} May is considered to be the month of flowers and spring! Although this year it reminds more of summer since the temperatures are quite high here in Greece.

I recently found Karen's blog by chance, and started reading away! She has some fantastic patterns which I recommend you check out! One of them was the pattern of the Lily Hexagon which I simply adored and started crocheting away! The pattern uses the bobble stitch which I had never done before but I have to say I'm addicted to it now! Granny Heart Tutorial.

I'm sorry that it has been a while since my last post, but I've had some technical gremlins here that have kept me off-line!

It's been wet, wet, wet here for so long that I've forgotten the last completely dry day we've had – mainly miserable rain, but mixed with some snow for the last few days. Not pleasant to be out in, but the perfect excuse to stay by the fire and crochet! I'm still bobbling along, but the rounds seem to take an age to complete now, so I can only manage one or two rounds at a time... Of course, my itchy fingers have needed something smaller and quicker to create between marathon rounds so some experimenting was in order.

Anyway, I'm obsessed with these at the moment, so enough typing, I'm getting back to bobbling. Xx. Lily Pad Hexagons... Hello from not so sunny Scotland! I haven't forgotten you all, it's just taken me longer than expected to get organised, and I also wanted to have something good to share....... but first.... Scotland in the rain is lovely; I'm really enjoying my new job and I love my new home. This is the view from my kitchen window - and these were my moving in treat to myself... I can see a loch from my bedroom window, but I'm not taking any pics until I can get out there when the sun is shining, and that has only happened so far while I've been at work.

Lily Pad Hexagons. A Better Granny Rectangle « crochet again. Well, I think it is better : ) As I said before, in my other Granny Rectangle post (don’t go there, I think this one is better), I have always been unsatisfied with how the center of granny rectangles line up in the middle, instead of alternating like it does in the rest of the fabric. It seems weaker and is not as pleasing to me, I just don’t like it : ) Don’t know why I didn’t do it this way the first time I got the idea, but at least I thought of it now. For the size I did in the example: Ch 22 Ch 21 (corrected 8-24-13) In the 6th chain from the hook, 3dc.

Skip 2 stitches, 3dc in same stitch. Continue across, skipping 2 and doing 3dc in the same stitch. When you reach the last ch, 1dc. Ch3 (counts as a dc) In the space on the end created by the dc and foundation ch; 2dc, ch3, 3dc, ch3, 3dc. 2 corners on the end made. 3dc in each space between across… At the next end; in the ch 5 space 3dc, ch3, 3dc, ch3, 3dc to make the corners on the other end.

Hi everyone; my second, baby boy option, blanket is now decided upon. I wanted a blanket covered in 5-point stars, made up of hexagon motifs similarly to my baby girls puffed daisy blanket.

This wasn't the most straightforward project to design, and I have to admit that I don't think I could just write the pattern down in a way that most people would be able to understand easily, so a comprehensive photographic tutorial is essential for this project. I would have loved to have made a video tutorial for you, but with only 1 pair of hands I'm afraid it is beyond me! (I suddenly feel the need for a large rubber band to hold my camera to my forehead! Back view below. My boys baby blanket is in shades of blue, green, white, grey and dark brown.

Go on, give it a go... Happy crocheting Karen xx. Granny Triangles - my way. Many of you asked me how to make the triangles for the bunting in my previous post. Some of you asked if there is a pattern for it. There might be a pattern for it in many places, as it is a very basic pattern. Same as in a granny square, but you work three sides instead of four. Here is how I make them. Ch4, sl st to first chain to form a ringFirst round Ch2(Counts as first dc.

Sl st in the next 2 dc (I sl st in the back of the chain) sl st into ch2 space. Third round sl st in the next 2 dc sl st into ch2 space. Repeat third round till the triangle is as big as you want. I have added small metal bells below each triangle.
