My crochet journey.

Cupcake Yarn Scarf — June 1, 2018
Cosmic CAL — April 18, 2018

Cosmic CAL

I’m beginning the Cosmic CAL. Here are the colors I chose:

  • Antique White
  • Pastel Blue
  • Claret
  • Denim
  • Cherry
  • Honey Bee
  • Lavender
  • Pastel Green
  • Pastel Pink

The CAL runs 9 weeks. I’m excited to get started and see what it looks like in the end. It’s a great way to learn new stitches and create something awesome in the process. I’ll keep you all updated as the weeks progress.

Midland Basket — February 23, 2018

Midland Basket

I’ve been wanting to crochet a basket, but I’m not good with keeping the rounds even. This pattern was challenging for me just like I was worried. Even though, I continued with the pattern and made it through to the end. All in all, it turned out well. The basket isn’t symmetrical, but it definitely can hold items. It’s that the overall point? I would definitely try this pattern from Lion Brand again.

Fast-Track Yarn Shawl/Scarf — February 18, 2018

Fast-Track Yarn Shawl/Scarf

I’ve been wanting to try out the fast-track yarn from Lion Brand. It finally went on sale, so I bought some and the rest is history. It really does fast-track. I used the v-stitch to create the pattern. The scarf became really long, so I decided that it might be more of a shawl for someone. I used dark blue and tan.

Final size – 82″ x 11″

I’ve included a folded up view as well as a close up view.

Shawl in a Ball – Sparkle — February 9, 2018

Shawl in a Ball – Sparkle

I decided to work with a skein of Lion Brand’s Shawl in a Ball today. I used one of their patterns – Sparkle Shawl. The pattern was really easy and worked up in a day. Using the Shawl in the Ball is the way to go if you need shawls quickly.

For this pattern, I used Restful Rainbow for the color. My Shawl is about 20″ x 50″. I used a H size hook. I would definitely do this pattern again.

Baby Blanket — January 11, 2018

Baby Blanket

I’ve completed my first blanket of the year. My goal this year is to keep track of everything I crochet. I chose to do a granny square using a 4.0 mm hook. When I do the granny square I don’t add a chain in between groups of three. I chain two in the corners. Using this method it gives me the lines on each row.

The blanket is 32″ x 32″:
