Lily Pad Hexagons...

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. Now enough of the necessities of life and on to the good stuff! And if you look from the side I think they look rather like lily pads...... Now I'm aware that my instructions for the puffed daisy hexagon has stumped some readers who are not quite as experienced in the crochet techniques required, so I have produced a photo-heavy tutorial below that I hope can be followed by all.

Puffed Daisy Hexagon Season's Greetings! 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

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. 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. Now, go across the other side, making 3dc in each space between… Slpst into the top of the beginning ch3 and there you have it! Like this: Like Loading...

The Solid Granny Square by Tamara Kelly A few weeks ago I did a video tutorial of the Traditional Granny Square, but I also talked a little bit about how “officially” a granny square is any motif worked flat, in a square, from the center out. Nonetheless, there are a few squares that are considered typical, while the rest rarely get called “grannies.” One of the better known simple squares is the Solid Granny Square, and here’s how it’s made! Switch up to HD using the little gear icon for optimized viewing, or use a smaller resolution if you have a slow internet connection. How to Crochet the Solid Granny Square: Written Instructions for the Solid Granny Square: Ch 4, join with a sl st to form a ring. Round 1: Ch 5 (counts as first dc and ch 2). Round 2: Sl st into the ch sp. Round 3: Sl st into the ch sp. Round 4: Sl st into the ch sp. At this point you can fasten off, or you can just keep going! There are, of course, many variations on this square as well.

Anleitung: Sunburst Flower Granny Square haekeln « Kasa Amend Geschafft: Meine Foto-Anleitung zum Häkeln der Sunburst Flower Granny Squares für eine dieser tollen Decken, wie sie viele wahrscheinlich von Sandra Juto oder dieser Flickr Group kennen, ist fertig.

African Flower Pentagon Tutorial Hi everyone,Well, I have been very pleased and thankful for all the wonderful kind comments I have received since I posted about Lollo Bear Pattern last night! Thank you to every person who commented and visited, and of course appreciation and thanks to all who bought a copy of the pattern! One omission on my part, was to leave out a tutorial on how to crochet an African Flower Pentagon. I assumed (and we all know what that does...), that if you were familiar with the hexagon, you would be able to crochet the pentagon... I am really sorry folks! Essentially the pentagon and hexagon are crocheted in the same way, except that you make 5 petals instead of 6. African Flower Pentagon Tutorial Chain 5, and join to the first chain via a slip stitch (represented by the round dot). Chain 3. Slip stitch into the third chain to close your round. Now Slip Stitch into the next along chain space as seen above. Chain 3. Now slip stitch to the next along chain space. Chain 3. 6dc into the same space.

Simple Filet Crochet Starburst Square Here's a super simple yet quite lovely fillet crochet/granny square star burst, with just enough detail to make it interesting, yet simple enough for crocheters of any level to pull off. And, since there are no color changes that means a lot fewer ends to weave in! I was inspired by the gorgeous blanket I saw here, which was purchased as a kit from a Danish yarn company Yarn Freak. I am so grateful to them for their amazingly gorgeous yet simple idea, and for the inspiration to finally make that crocheted blanket I've been dreaming of, but just couldn't decide which pattern to go with! Simple Fillet Crochet Star burst Square Pattern: American Crochet Terminology (as opposed to British terminology, which is quite different!) Chain 4, join with slip stitch Rnd 1: All stitches are worked into center of loop. Rnd 2: Ch3, skip the next dc and dc in the last dc of the group from rnd 1. Rnd 3: Ch3, DC in next 3 DC. Round 4: Ch3, DC in next 5DC. Round 5: Ch3, DC in next 7DC. That's it!

Squaring the Big Circle Tutorial This is going to be my first attempt at writing up one of my own designs. Because there has been a little more interest in the first blanket I made from this pattern, (and the fact that I was so happy with how it turned out), I thought it would be a great excuse to attempt a written pattern/tutorial to share! I think this square (like most crocheted squares) has limitless potential, so I see this as more of a guideline than an exact pattern. Once you get the basic pattern down you can play with colors and joining methods. For example, for the first blanket I made, every circle had a white background and I used the join-as-you-go method that I learned from Sarah London. Ok, on to the pattern! Worsted weight yarn (I used Vanna's Choice) Size J hook Written in US stitch terms If you have any questions or find any mistakes please let me know, and if you make a square/blanket from this pattern I would love to see it!

Blooming Flower Cushion Here is my tutorial showing how to construct this wonderful layered flower and then make it into a Blooming Flower cushion/pillow. First of all I would like to say that this pattern is not my own. I found it via Two Butterflies blog. In this blog post, Jennifer shows her own creation and gives a link to the original pattern which is actually a vintage potholder design from the 1940's. The original pattern is short and sweet and written in US terms. The directions re how to increase in each round are vague and took me a fair amount of trial and error before I got it sussed. Before we begin, a little summary of the basic stitches. sl st [slip stitch] :: insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch, then through the loop on your hook. dc [double crochet] :: insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (two loops on hook), yarn over and pull through both loops on hook (note :: this is equivalent to the US sc stitch) To begin :: ch 6 and join to form a ring.
