Hat & Scarf Set

I loved making the Ripple Blanket so much I made a scarf and a simple beret style hat to match the colours. This is a Sirdar Wash & Wear Yarn which was lovely to work with.

I have included a tutorial from 'You Tube' if you want to learn/refresh this lovely stitch.

I really like this colour combo have fun Dawn xx

Spring Cot Cover

Well we're into March now, everything is budding nicely. This was the inspiration for this spring coloured cot blanket I made last year. I got the idea from a magazine Simply Crochet last year. I obviously changed it up a little with the colours to match Spring. But this is really quite a large blanket. it really is for a cot cover.

The yarn is all Style Craft DK I have to say I love this 100% acrylic. It really is grate value for your money , and knits/crochets up beautifully. Fantastic colour pallets to choose from as well. Keep Stitching ;)

Pram Cover

I am seeing lots of youngsters with beautiful crochet blankets of all kinds over their babies these days. They are not making them for them selves, they are paying lots of money (well you have to ask don't you?) for them. It's not as though a family member has made them either! Is this something you have noticed?

So I bought this multi 300g coloured ball for £2.99 from Aldi, and look what I got.

Really nice to work with. 100% acrylic but not at all squeaky (if you know what I mean). I really  liked the way the colours changed. I used some left over style craft yarn (another favourite) for the boarder.  I was really pleased with this and SO easy to make no pattern required. I just started a granny and continued until I ran out of yarn! Then added a very simple boarder. Wish I had taken a photo of that now doh! Keep stitching ;)
