Developing Chains

My crochet journey.

Sweetpea Blanket

I have finally finished the Sweetpea Blanket. It’s not the entire pattern. I’d work on it and then leave and return and forget it was written in UK terms. Needless to say it’s got a little US and UK stitches mixed in. But I’m still impressed with how it turned out. I decided to use “I love this cotton” yarn from Hobby Lobby.

Mother’s Day Roses

Since I have begun crocheting on a regular basis, I decided to make my mother something that wouldn’t die or go bad this year. I crocheted half a dozen roses for her. She loved them. It was a quick project and I had so much fun doing it. Have a look:

I’ve been looking for CAL so I can learn new stitches. I found one by Marley Bird from February 4. I wish I’d been interested in doing this then. Anyways, I found the pattern here. I learned the pineapple stitch and a spike stitch. It’s cool what you can pick up from these.

Ultimately, this turned out to be a cowl. It easily slides over your head.
