Printer-friendly version Send by email PDF version More free afghan patterns: Crochet Afghan Patterns, Knit Afghan Patterns, Baby Blanket Patterns Mile-a-minute afghans are created by knitting or crocheting long strips that are then sewn together. Granny square afghans are timeless and are made by knitting and crocheting a specific number of same-sized squares, then joining them together into one blanket. Motif afghans are similar to granny squares in that you crochet or knit different pieces to join, but they're typically not square pieces and can be made in any geometric shape from triangle to circle.

Hexagon How-to My crochet Hexagons, I am LOVING them right now, can't get enough. For a brief spell I fell out of love, I got fed up with the fiddlesomeness of them, the fact that they are very hard to do whilst simultaneously doing anything else (like drinking cappuccino and nattering). They take concentration folks, but if you are prepared to concentrate then these will reward you handsomely. I'm not sure how this post will turn out, maybe a bit of a descriptive pattern/tutorial mixture, but one thing's for certain :: I will do my damndest to help you make these if you are interested. I made my own pattern to suit my own yarn, after not being able to find a pattern anywhere on the web in general. And as my pattern appears to differ slightly from others I've seen, I feel confident in finally sharing it :: ie no plagiarism/copyright issues involved I hope. Another valuable source of information and inspiration is the Hexagon Love pool on Flickr. For this blanket, I am using Rowan Handknit DK Cotton.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Standard pony pattern: School-age Pony pattern also available here. *** Translations:Danish by Marianne Dutch by Marinka (via Facebook group) Spanish by Lyanne ***A while back I came across this severely awesome pattern, and wanted to give it a go. Therefore, I (after a certain amount of trial and error, adding a few bits and generally tweaking things around) have reworked it into a single crochet version. Pictures: Male nose and female nose: Earth ponies: Unicorn: Pegasus with closed wings: Pegasus with open wings: Applejack's hat: (Ponies available on Etsy by the way, and custom pony orders welcome) 2013/3/1: If you would like to make these ponies to sell, I'm happy for you to do so! 2013/3/15: Since it seems many people are ignoring my warning about how much of a pain it is to do the corded manes and tails, I've added instructions below 2013/5/28: I've made a couple of changes to the pattern - removed one row from the hind legs, and reworked the open wings.

Block Stitch Afghan : the way I do it !!!! .....what about two more pictures of my blanket to be???? Some of you asked me how the "dots" ( I call them "rice grains"!!!) can pop out in this way, so I thought it will be nice if I show you how this happens!!!! Happy about that??? Collect just few things : + hook + yarn in different colours + scissors + tapestry needle This is the chart (american crochet terminology), drawn by myself (!!!!!!) Your foundation chain will have these characteristics : chain 4, add as many as you like groups of "chain 3". Choose the colour you would love to start with and make a slip knot. Chain 20 stitches Chain 2 more (total : 22 stitches) and make a single crochet (or SC) in the 7th stitch from the hook (that is the previous stitch 16 on the foundation chain!) Now, chain 2 ... ... skip 2 stitches of the foundation chain and work 1 SC in the 3rd stitch (that is the previous 13 stitch of your foundation chain!) Again : chain 2, skip 2, SC in third stitch (previous #10!) Cut the yarn and fasten off! Row 1 : Row 2 :

Crochet hexagon blanket – finished at last! – Redhead crochet by Lilja Þorsteinsdóttir on January 29, 2013 I posted a sneak preview of my crochet hexagon blanket the other day. Lo and behold, it’s finished! I followed the Attic24 tutorial but had to improvise with the 1/2 and 1/3 hexagons I needed to make a square blanket. I didn’t like the way it looked with the crooked hexagon edges. I love the outcome, I think it’s one of the most beautiful thing’s I’ve ever crocheted. None of the hexagons are identical. Here are the pictures: Of course the cats loved it, like anything I try to take a picture of One extra of my daughter – she was going to a zombie birthday party All in all this was a fun project, I tried to crochet over the ends so it wouldn’t take too long to sew them in at the end but it didn’t come out very nicely in some parts so I stopped and had a baaaad time yesterday weaving in ends.

How to Crochet -- Woven stitch The crocheted Woven Stitch is one of my favorites to use for baby blankets and afghans since it is easy to stitch, using only chain stitch and single crochet, and it works up quickly into a nice single thickness lightweight blanket. It can be worked in one solid color, in a variegated yarn or in stripes and each combination looks great. Here's how it works: Start out with a beginning chain in multiples of 3, plus 2 extra. For the first row, skip the first 2 chains and work a single crochet into the third chain. Then chain 1, skip 1 chain, work 1 single crochet, as shown above. This is what your piece will look like after finishing the first row. Work 2 chain stitches and turn your work. This is what your piece will look like after the second row is complete. Continue as before with chain 2, turn, single crochet into first chain space. This is a side view of the sample piece showing that there is not much in the way of texture or layering with this stitch.

How to Seamlessly Change Colors in Crochet Today I want to show you how you can seamlessly change colors in crochet. Changing yarn colors within a row can be neat and easy. The trick is to prepare for the color change while working the stitch before the one that you want to show the next color. Put another way, the new color is introduced on the final yarn over of the stitch before. Let’s use some photos to make this easier… For this project I have worked my round so far in a cream color and am ready to switch over to another color. The color change is nice and neat … The same concept is also applied to taller stitches. Again, a nice and neat color change … So, what do you think?

Blackberry Salad Striped Baby Blanket About three years ago, I was lucky enough to become an aunty yet again, and to celebrate I decided to make a pretty little baby blanket for the new niece or nephew. Using some hot new colors available in Lion Brand Cotton Ease that year, I came up with this: I loved it, the new parents loved it, and my sister-in-law tells me even complete strangers remarked on it. I put it in my Ravelry notebook (a notebook I’ve sadly neglected lately), and it went crazy in the favorites, if I do say so myself. It’s cute, fun, and easy, and it’s time to share. Ok, one more look. Blackberry Salad Striped Baby BlanketAdd this pattern to your Ravelry Queue Yarn: 1449 yards Lion Brand Cotton-Ease (7 skeins in desired colors) or same quantity other worsted weight yarnHook: 5.0mm (H/8) I didn’t measure the finished product, but it was about the same size as other baby blankets we had around at the time – more than big enough to cover a newborn or infant carrier car seat.
