Unbothered Blanket: My Most Relaxing Crochet Project

New blanket alert! And the first in a series of free blanket patterns. See my Relaxghans intro post for all the deets on this series. FREE PATTERN RAVELRY The pattern calls for 15-17g balls of remnants, but I actually used these Scheepjes | Cahlista* 15g balls from the Colour Pack*, and also added in a few full-size skeins of Cahlista that I had on-hand from a different project. Used a simple ch-3 space JAYG and really did not pay attention to which way the squares were rotated as I joined. The eyelet stripes, and the color stripes are any which way, and I love it. Also, muted, pastel, neutral, bright, neon…. Yep, it’s all in there. In the photo below, I was apparently in the mood to start a square, abandon it, and start another, just going with the flow. Also had some fun with placement planning, but nothing too heavy. Just pure peace. Lounging on the breakfast nook table, all finished. If I had the time to make this blanket a hundred more times, …

Dutch Rose: The hygge is strong with this one

Major update: I’ve decided to turn this piece into a full on CAL – read more here! ••• I do my best work in the early morning. It’s when I’m thinking clearly, there’s peace and quiet, a cup of coffee, and me and my graph paper. A few days ago, I finished a huge project and I wanted to have some “play time.” Scheepjes | Stone Washed was calling me, but what would I make? A granny square starting to form in front of me, but I frogged it… nope. Not a granny square, but something just as comforting to me, if not more so. A hexagon.

Sunshine Blanket – Tada!

Ta-daaaaa! This post has to be short and sweet as I am off to do a science project with my middle daughter, but i just had to show you all my latest FO. It. Has. Pompoms. On this overcast winter day, I present to you the happiest, most Springy-est, pastel-icious Blanket you could imagine. And it’s pint-sized! 26x34in to be exact. During the progress pic posts on social media, I got a lot of positive feedback on this color combination and on the design of the blanket itself, which is so great and unexpected! I think the draw was the perfect little center circle, or at least that’s what I love about the motif. So playful!

Introducing: Our Tribe

Well, guys, what can I say? I’m a part of the neatest thing since sliced bread – grabbing the baton from Miss Neriss on this Scheepjes Blogger blog hop – (Thank you, Nerissa!!), and it’s now my turn to introduce Our Tribe yarn. [Related Link: Browse this yarn*!] Look at that pile of loveliness and tell me you don’t want to just reach out and squeeze a skein. A few months ago, Scheepjes reached out to me and asked me for six colors that I thought faded well with one another. I was quite puzzled but I replied with a set of colors which have always been in my heart and often make an appearance in my projects (Trellis and Chevron, Desert Bloom, Moon Landing, and many more). These salient shades included a nice turquoise, a mint green, and an olive green, among others. The navy blue, coral, and deeper teal colors I chose are all hinted at in my yarn skein, but the real superstar is the mint and olive combo. I was actually …
