...So crochet has proved to be a permanent love for me (it has survived the magic 3 months :) ). But. So many patterns, so little time, I had to decide. I'm not full of confidence enough to run my head against making clothes, so I chose blankets and throws - what can be easier than crocheting granny squares going round and round and round without counting? Here is my first baby blanket in use:
Squares are from here
Edging is from attic24's free tutorial
I joined the squares with single crochet. I admit I found the yarn in one of my favourite second-hand shop... although it was brand new in original packing, not leftover. OK, and acrylic... but soft.
Then I wanted something larger. Much larger... I got a new-found confidence, and I bought yarn from a web shop, still acrylic, what if I fail.. (In Hungary quality yarns cost a fortune, at least according to me...) So I used Margareta (Red Heart) yarn. Here is the result:
here. The squares are also joined with sc.
then came the edging, so I turned to the good attic24's free tutorial .
At the moment I'm working on a blanket for my daughter. She requires something colourful. OK, she'll get it. So work in progress:
found here . Wow, she is incredible.
This time I used better yarn: Patternworks Sunapee, 55% cotton, 45% silk.
And at last I took myself to learn another new thing: the joining-as-you-go method, attic24 presents on the same place. This is where I am.
