One Lovely Blanket

The Spring Garden Afghan 

I really enjoyed making this blanket and managed to finish it in time with the ending of the CAL a lovely blanket in less that five weeks is a great achievement for me.

 It's so frustrating trying to get a good photo of a blanket because my photo's can never capture the beauty of the blanket in real life, I really love the colours but they don't look true in the photo.

This was made for charity but as always it's difficult to let a pretty blanket go, but there are only so many blankets a girl can house.

The blanket was made with Sirdar Hayfield Bonus Dk in shades, Salmon, Lemongrass, Ladybird and sunflower all of which I already had in my stash, it took 648 grams of yarn and measures 51 inches by 40.
The free pattern and tutorial is available on The Crochet Crowds website here

Have a great week.😊

Whats On My Hook

I have been totally engrossed these past two weeks in yet another stitch along this time it's one hosted by the Crochet crowd, The Spring Garden Afghan, everything else has been put on hold as I want to try and keep up with this, it only runs for Five weeks and today is the start of week three.

Week one consisted of 22 plain squares..

The pattern calls for worsted weight yarn but I used Dk so I had to do an extra round to get the squares 5 inches, I also used smaller stitches for the corners so that the holes weren't too large.

Week Two consisted of 20 squares..

Week Three

Just out today, I've been playing around with this, the flower is much bigger in the pattern but I have used smaller stitches to make it smaller and neater, just 20 more to go! 

Is anyone else following this too?

I love a project like this, one that's not too difficult and totally engrosses me, the housework and everything else has gone out of the window 😂 

Whats on your needles or hook?
