Well, y’all, I’m sad to let it go, but the Dutch Rose Blanket CAL has come to a close. I hope everyone enjoyed creating this piece, and if you haven’t quite finished yet, please take your time – no rush! Post WIP and FO pics to Instagram with hashtag #dutchroseblanket or #dutchroseblanketcal and of course #cypresstextiles so I will see it sooner 🙂 Advertisements
Welcome to my latest free crochet pattern, y’all! Carefree is finally here, and if fire comes out of your fingertips, you can make a lapghan for your ma, just in time for Mothers’ Day. Give mom some Carefree vibes!
Say hello to the third Relaxghan of this popular series of free blanket patterns! The Carefree blanket crochet pattern is nearly done, but in the meantime, I thought I’d share the FO photographs with you all.
Were you ever crocheting a blanket, stepped back to take a quick snapshot, and were positively wowed by the beauty?? Even though you (annoyinglyyy) accidentally wadded up the WIP so that the crochet motifs were wrong side facing, and as a result, you can’t see the details?? Yeah me too.
Today I did some stash diving! I’m brainstorming for this month’s Relaxghan and I want to pick a nice bright palette of Scheepjes | Catona. I’m also thinking of mixing in some Catona Denim since it has a tonal quality that will mix things up.
Better late than never has never felt so good. This FO* is coming after the completion of a long, long list of Super Huge Important Things I had to do, so the delay was definitely worth it, trust me. 2018 is my year of Self Love.
I’ve been on a huge kick of using all my remnants and scraps and leftovers to create. Though you don’t always get those predictable, pretty, go-to palettes, you do allow yourself to free up space and freshen your yarn stash. So for this project, the second pattern in my free pattern series “Relaxghans”, I’ll be using a little stash of Scheepjes | Merino Soft left over from a project I made for my upcoming book, releasing in May. (Yay!) Merino Soft is super enjoyable to work with as it is just buttery and always looks saturated. It won’t fade, and is very durable. Plus, check out this yummy color range!
