My crocheting friends are doing so well! Amy has made headbands for her two children! These are double crocheted with bulky yarn. She added adorable flower pins for accents.
I’m not the prettiest model. I’ve discovered my nose looks very long and pointy and witch-like. I’m not a fan of it in these pics.
Amy also made another one, but it’s pretty loose for a headband due to the yarn weight and stitch. I think this yarn weight would be fine with a single crochet instead of a double crochet. It’s still cute, but won’t keep your head very warm.
Amy also made a cute little basket for her daughter to play with. I’m not sure how she did it, but it’s still pretty cute! She’s going to try to replicate it and make a few more baskets.
Cathy also made a headband! Hers is with a single crochet and a beautiful variegated yarn.
She found the cutest buttons for hers! She also has a double crocheted one almost completed.
These ladies are doing so well! Amy is starting on an afghan and Cathy crocheted a flower with me the other night. They’re really getting the hang of it!
I’ve also finished something recently!
I failed to snap a finished photo of it. This is while I was blocking it. I gave it away to my friend at her baby shower this last weekend. You may have seen this ripple pattern going around the internet. It was pretty popular and its not a difficult pattern at all! I had a lot of fun working on it.
After I finished, I played around with a couple of other patterns.
This is the sharp chevron stitch. I tried it once before and there were some weird things going on. I found another tutorial and this one worked much better! I’m not going to do another chevron blanket, but I still wanted to give this a try.
I may do something with clamshells, though. I really like this stitch. I haven’t perfected it yet…as you can see from the uneven edges. I think I could figure it out pretty quickly, though.
Now I have to figure out what exactly to start next!
