I needed something quick and simple to make to give as a gift to my sister in law whom I will be meeting for the first time since her brother and myself have been together (8 yrs.). I had these squares put away and thought well why not all I have to do is join them. I used the flat braid join which I love because of its simplicity and the end results are stunning.
I put together two video tutorials on how to crochet the Charity Square which is a free pattern by Donna Mason-Svara and how to join them.
Go check out her blog here and please add the Charity Square Pattern to your Favorites on Ravelry
I hope these are helpful if you find yourself looking to make a quick but beautiful afghan, enjoy!
My 7 year old daughter has an American Girl and we are obsessed with it. If you know of this doll then you know that they are expensive and so are the accessories for it. So I have begun to crochet a few things for her doll and here is the first and second lol A Pillow and Blanket to match.
I love using color so when I needed to make a basket to put random things in it, I pulled out some yarn and went to it. I used ten different colors of Red Heart Super Saver Yarn. Using two strands of yarn I came up with this big ol’ colorful crochet basket.
Materials Used: Red Heart Super Saver Colors used: Soft Navy, Burgandy, Charcoal, Hot Red, Paddy Green, Shocking Pink, Blue, Pretty in Pink, Light Grey, and Lemon. Hook: K (10 1/2)
Crochet American Girl Ripple Blanket Matching Pillow
My daughter got a new American Girl Doll and asked me to make her a blanket and pillow. I’ve been meaning to make a ripple blanket for my bed so I figured it would be good practice to make a small one. It was fun to make and I love the color combination and not to mention but Saige the doll love it too 🙂
I finally decided what to make for my kids teacher’s a tiny crochet box. School will be over in a couple of weeks and I needed something that would work up quickly since I’m making it for eight teachers…yes eight. So these cute tiny boxes are perfect. I am going to fill them with candy and hand them out on the last day of school. Hope they love them as much as I do 🙂
