Four Leaf Lucky Clover Hat

Green four leaf clover on a black background with a shell stitch trim.

I added a silvery four leaf clover to have the green ones pop some more.

This is the pattern for my four leaf clover.

Crochet Spider Stitch Throw

image

With a gigantic ball of yarn, shifting between black, grey and red I made this throw. The pattern is really super simple, though it would be easier to explain with a diagram. May have to draw one if this is a pattern anyone would like to try.

Pattern;
Chain 30x plus 3. The plus three is the first double crochet of rnd 1.
(I made this one with 183 chains.)
Rnd 1: dc in the fourth chain from the hook. Dc in the next 9 chains. Chain 10, skip 10 chains then dc in the next ten.
Rnd 2: Chain 3. Dc in the next nine stitches. Chain 10, skip 10 and dc in each of the next 10 stitches.
Rnd 3-5. Repeat rnd 2.
Rnd 6: Chain 3. Dc in the next 10 stitches. Chain 5, sc around four of the chain lines from the previous rows. Chain 5 then double crochet in the next 10.

Rnd 7: Repeat rnd 1.

I found it looked better with one chain line on the bottom and top edge.

The end result is a great throw or shawl for summer season.

Lemon/Lime Baby Blanket with Border

I found a pattern for lemon and lime slices which were simple to make although they generated massive amounts of ends to weave in. They could be pot holders or coasters as other tutorials suggest. Great tutorial for the pot holder and crochet part of the fruitslice can be found here.

Using a basic square I managed to put them together into a blanket!
It’s not very big but perfect for the pram and its also quite warm.

For a girl it would be cool to use a watermelon theme. Yellow/green being fairly neutral. The border is quite similar to one found on this great sitethat has over 1400 free crochet diagrams.

Crochet Paint Splatter Scarf

Half double crochet and… paint splatter?

There’s a great guideover at “look at what i made” to this pattern and it really is deceptively simple. I just had to try it out although I didn’t want to do squares.

Turns out it works just fine for other things as well and its great for using up even the smallest scraps of yarn.

21 Hearts Blanket

Usually when I begin a project I have someone in mind to give it to. I don’t really sell anything except for a few requests here and there. For this project I found a nice red ball of yarn. Or the red ball of yarn found me. I had to use it for something. This little baby blanket is just going to have to wait for some random baby to be born, haha.

The larger middle heart has wings and is surrounded by twenty smaller red hearts in slightly varied shades of red. Red and grey go really well together, kind of makes me think of England 1920s, can’t say why. The big heart doesnt have a pattern but is loosely inspired by the small heart square to which there is a chart.
