Cotton pot holder

Made this quick and easy pot holder in light blue and white cotton yarn in a linen stitch with a row of single crochet.


Fluffy fringed white baby blanket

I finished this 30″ x 30″ white baby blanket using some very basic white yarns. I used a half double crochet through the back loop stitch and it finished up in about two weeks. I did not use a pattern. I wasn’t quite sure what to do about the border then I found the fluffy yarn in my stash and just did a double crochet stitch all the way around after doing a single crochet stitch all the way around in the other yarn.

Pink and white scarf

Finally getting back into the crochet groove :). Here is a pink and white scarf in three types of yarns in single half double and double crochet stitches.








Shell Stitch Baby Blanket

Ok, I’ve got to say, I’m extremely proud of this baby blanket!  This was commissioned by a friend for his new baby nephew.  I used Caron Simply Soft in blue and white and did a basic crochet shell stitch throughout.  The border is one round of single crochet in blue, then double crochet in white, then a tiny shell stitch outer border that places (sc, ch 3, sc) in every other stitch.  For any baby blanket I make in the future, I will certainly use this pattern (that I made up)…
