Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran- Baby Blanket



The Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran is a luxurious soft, yet practical yarn making it perfect for blankets, clothing and accessories, and is available in 32 shades

The cashmere and merino wool is blended with acrylic to make it super soft but also machine washable.


I used my Honeycomb Diamonds Blanket  pattern to make a small baby blanket measuring 28x32 inches and chose 4 main colours:
Stone (27) 2x50g
Baby pink (603) 2x50g
Grey (9) 2x50g
Lilac (84) 2x50g

plus White (25) 1x50g for the border



In total I used 360g of yarn and used each main colour for 16 rows. You could adjust this to just 1 solid colour throughout or use less rows of several different colours to create a fun striped effect.

I added a simple border using 4 rows of double crochet (UK terms) see pattern for alternative border using puff stitches

Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran is available exclusively from lovecrafts.com and comes in 32 beautiful shades.

Plant pot covers-free crochet pattern

This quick little make is a great use for any leftover bits of t shirt or chunky yarn. I used the Hoooked ribbon and zpagetti yarns to make these cute little gifts for my little boy's pre-school teachers. The pattern would suit any yarn that has a small amount of stretch in it and it's really simple to adapt. I've made these using paintbox yarns chunky acrylic too and it works perfectly!

You will need:
Just a small amount of yarn and a hook size to match (with the t shirt or ribbon yarn I use 9mm or chunky acrylic with a 6mm)
a small plant pot. Mine measure approx. 2 inch diameter at the base, 2.5 inch diameter at the top and height = 2.5 inches
scissors and darning needle to weave in ends

Follow the basic pattern below increasing the number rows to adjust height or diameter

abbreviations:
mc = magic circle
st= stitch
hdc= us half double/uk half treble
ss= slip stitch
ch = chain

note-ch 1 does not count as a stitch

with t shirt yarn and a 9mm hook:

Granny Square Purse Tutorial

This is a super quick and fun make using any granny square pattern you like. It’s a great way of using up any yarns scraps you have and would work well using lots of different types of yarn. I used knitcraft cotton blend yarn from hobbycraft with a 4mm hook but you could use any yarn and hook size to suit. Simply make a 7 round granny square using your preferred method or use the pattern below. I wanted to use quite a solid square. You’ll then finished with a row of double crochet and sew. Change colour after each row if you like, just remember to work over your yarn tails as you go to save time weaving in all those ends later.

You will need:
Cotton blend yarn in 4 colours. I used purple, hot pink, mustard and teal
4mm hook
1 button



In UK terms:


Rnd1. Make a magic ring and chain 3 (equals 1 treble crochet stitch throughout)  3x treble crochet, chain 2 (4 trebles, chain 2) x3, slip stitch to top of chain 3 to join then fasten off
Rnd2-7. Joining new colour in any stitch, Chain 3, work…

Easter Bunny Eggs- Free Crochet Pattern

These cute little bunnies are quick, fun to make and are a great way of using up your yarn scraps. Make them with or without the hanging loops to make your perfect Easter decoration.



I originally designed these for Simply Crochet magazine last year using 2 contrasting strands of cotton 4 ply yarn held together. Pictured above is Stylecraft Classique Cotton 4ply (100% cotton 50g/182m)1 ball of each in Sky blue (3667), Fondant (3094), Soft lime (3663), Lavender (3673) and Sunflower (3662)
You can also use 1 strand of dk yarn instead or go chunkier with a larger hook to make a bigger egg. I recently made some using King Cole Stripe DK in pink. I really like the way the colour changes work up differently in each egg. Have fun using different yarn weights and hook sizes to create your own unique decoration.

You will need:
Any dk weight yarn or 2 strands of 4-ply held together.
2.5mm crochet hook Stitch marker
Polyester toy stuffing
