I am participating in The Crochet Crowd’s Stitch-cation Summer Crochet Challenge. Here are my first blocks using the “popcorn” stitch. In addition to learning new stitches for the blocks we are being challenged to use at least 8 different colours. I will make an afghan with all the blocks in this challenge.
This past Winter 2014 I designed this Santa hat and beard for my 6 year old son based on the Cabbage Patch craze. It was the perfect hat for the cold winter that just passed. I created this pattern but did not write it down. To make it I mashed a few different patterns. Check out my Ravelry page to see more details on the patterns I referenced if you want to make your own.
On July 30, 2014 I joined the graphghan trend and completed my very first graphghan of Hello Kitty. It was a lot easier than I thought to get started. First I searched online for a graph of Kitty. When I found the one I wanted to depict in the crochet blanket, I simply printed the chart and designed the rest of the afghan around her. What do you think?
