Bright Crochet Waves


I can't believe that its
been almost two months
since my last post

Where has the time gone??

I have been busily working on this
wavy blanket


With bright pink pom-poms
(tutorial here)


And lots of color



A fun birthday gift for my
oldest grand daughter
who's turning 8


Now back to weaving in the ends of this


So many ends
So little time


I love making these 
mixed stitch striped blankets
This is the third
But I hate weaving in the ends!

  1. I love the blanket you made for your granddaughter, colours and everything. With regards your blue blanket, why don't you next crochet over the tails, this way no tedious sewing in ends.look forward to seeing your finished blanket x

    1. jabot sometimes I crochet over the ends and sometimes I don't. I always do with Granny Squares. With this blanket I tried to but it was making the edge larger and being the perfectionist that I am, well it just didn't look right to me. I also decided to weave in then back to the edge, split the yarn and tie off. That way I can crochet over them when I do the border. This is for a small child and that way the ends will stay hidden.

  2. Both of these blankets are stunning! I love the colours and the mixed stitch stripe is something I really want to try one time!

  3. OMG! They are just gorgeous, love especially the 2nd one, they are my fav colours. I crochet ends in as I go, I would never crochet if I had to sew ends in once I thought I had finished. Did you follow patterns for them or did you just wing it? :D

    1. Sue I used the ripple pattern from Attic24, and the mixed stitch was inspired by littlewoolie's CAL blog posts - this is my 3rd so I just picked the stitches I like.

  6. Your granddaughter will LOVE this! Those are some knock-your-eyeballs-out bright colors! So pretty with the pom-poms too. And your stripy blanket is gorgeous. Can't believe you have made three of them. I remember those horrible ends to sew in! It's worth it though.

  9. Both of your blankets are gorgeous - but my favourite is the bright ripple blanket with the cute pom-poms, what a fabulous present to recieve. I am five rows short of completing a ripple bed runner for my mum's birthday.

    1. I like to use Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn. It is so soft and works up nicely. Sorry I didn't really keep track of the colors.

  16. Olá amiga, passando para lhe deixar um carinho, e já estou te seguindo,beijokas

    Amigo é coisa para se guardar Debaixo de sete chaves
    Dentro do coração
    Assim falava a canção que na América ouvi
    Mas quem cantava chorou Ao ver o seu amigo partir
    Mas quem ficou, no pensamento voou
    Com seu canto que o outro lembrou
    E quem voou, no pensamento ficou Com a lembrança que o outro cantou
    Amigo é coisa para se guardar No lado esquerdo do peito
    Mesmo que o tempo e a distância digam "não"
    Mesmo esquecendo a canção
    O que importa é ouvir
    A voz que vem do coração
    Pois seja o que vier,
    venha o que vier Qualquer dia,
    amigo, eu volto
    A te encontrar
    Qualquer dia, amigo, a gente vai se encontrar.
