Mosaic cushion !

Hello !

I’ve been busy yesterday finishing the Mosaic cushion and writing down the graphic of its pattern.

As so many of you asked for it, I did manage some time to draw it for you ! (I could not resist πŸ™‚ )

It is so simple, you will see, you can guess it by just looking at the pics πŸ™‚

But before the graphic, lets have a look to the cushion πŸ™‚ (I adore it)

This pattern is perfect for a baby blanket or another Giant granny πŸ™‚ hehe

and the graphic made with Corel Draw:

A last pic before saying goodbye…

Thank you all again for being here πŸ™‚

Have a lovely day!

P.S: To Julia: I crochet every day sometimes for only 10 minutes sometimes for a couple of hours! It depends πŸ˜‰

Hello!

This post is about the Kaleidoscope border…a simple border to go with the ZiG ZaG joining…

A ZiG ZaGy kind of edging πŸ˜‰ … Here is the graphic chart…( I make the graphics with a software called Corel Draw)

Hope this was clear πŸ™‚

Thank you so much for visiting today!

and thank you for all these lovely messages …I appreciate with all my heart every word you’re leaving here πŸ˜€

Have a very nice Sunday eve!

Well well well, it was such a pleasure reading all your sweet messages on my Kaleidoscope blanket! Thank you thank you ThAnK YoU πŸ™‚

This is as promised, the ZIG ZaG Joining method…

Hope that my explanations will be as clear as possible for you to understand… I apologize for those of you who do not understand graphic patterns…this is my only way to explain crochet 😦 sorryyyyyyyyy 😦

So, let’s have a try, shall we?

To begin this is the graphic pattern of the small square:

and then lets take a look to the ZiG ZaG joining graphic:

The red graphic is for the joining …You have every time to make a double crochet in your first square, 2 chain and another double crochet in the second square in EXACTLY THE SAME PLACE YOU DID THE FIRST ONE IN YOUR FIRST SQUARE !

Once this simple thing is clear all will become very easy to follow… Always always make a dc in the first square, 2 chain followed by another dc in the second square in exactly the same place…

I suggest for you, as a trial,Β  to begin joining 9 squares to make a small blanket of 3×3 squares as in this pic:

You have always to work as follow : Join all the squares of your blanket horizontally (A then B) and after you’ve made all your horizontal joining, you join all your squares vertically (C then D)

This method (joining horizontally everything then vertically) will make the joining very fast…I took some pics to make it clearer for you…

Pic 1: Arrange the colors of your squares as you want them to be in your blanket … I made here 3 rows of 10 squares each (because I have a total of 30 colors )

Pic2: Begin the horizontal joining of row1 with row 2 and then row2 with row3…etc

Pic3: Continue joining row by row horizontally…until all rows are joined horizontally like in Pic4 below

Pic4: After all the rows are joined together horizontally, begin the vertical joining (here in this pic above, one vertical joining is done)

Pic5: All the rows have been joined horizontally and vertically…time to begin the edging πŸ™‚ (which will be explained in my next post πŸ˜‰ )

Hope it was easy to understand…when you just read this post you’ll feel a little bit confused maybe, the best thing to do is to take a hook and some yarn, make 9 small squares and try joining them …

Thank you for visiting today!

Sending you lots of love through this post πŸ™‚

Good morning!

This is as promised the “how to” for “summer time” ripple blanket.

To begin, you have to make a chain : multiple of 11 + 4… I suggest, just to try out the pattern, to make as in the graphic here a chain of 37 ! ((3×11) +4 = 37) and when you try out and you’re ready to start you’ll make a much bigger chain as big as you want your blanket to be…

 

For Christina’s blanket I started with a chain of 114 (that is (10×11) +4 = 114) which is large enough for a six years girl blanket πŸ™‚

This is a close-up for the valley πŸ˜‰ (leaving 2 stitches of the previous row and crochet in the 3d one)

and this is a close-up of the mountain πŸ˜‰ (working 3 treble in the same stitch of the previous row)

It is very very easy to follow…you’ll see when you’ll try…

You have only to begin with the correct number of chain (always a multiple of 11 + 4) and follow the graphic chart…

Happy crocheting πŸ™‚
