Last Six in This Color

Flower Blanket 4

The last six hexagons in this mystery color. I got ten motifs out of a small cake which is encouraging. Sixty one more to go…

Still more

Flower Blanket 3

Three more motifs for the hex blanket. I only have one small cake of this color so I’m going to go ahead and use it all up on these. Despite the DTRs, I like these little hexagons. The pattern is easy to remember and I can make one in very little time.

More for the Flower Blanket

Flower Blanket 2

A couple more motifs in two more colorways. I wish I was better at DTR stitches. I guess practice will make perfect.

Really? Another Start?

Flower Blanket 1

I guess it’s a sickness, this starting of projects. But I got the Modern Blanket of Flowers pattern by Julie Yeager stuck in my head and couldn’t ignore it. She uses self-striping yarn which makes a really neat effect, but I’m using up some of my mountain of variegated yarn which I think will look kinda cool! The border color is RHSS Dark Sage. My motifs are 4.5 inches each.

The motif pattern is fairly simple except for those dastardly DTR stitches. I guess I’ll get good practice. I might finish it someday‚Ķ

Bustin’ Scraps Square

Bustin ScrapsToday’s Square: Bustin’ Scraps Square
Size: 6 inch
Pattern By: Anastacia Zittel
Hook: H
Yarn: Worsted weight acrylic RHSS turqua, royal, ocean; Caron Colour Perfect slate blue.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: This is a cute little square. The pattern makes a 6 inch or 12 inch square. I needed more contrast in the middle to make the pattern stand out, though. It wanted to buckle up in the middle a little with the decrease stitches. I think next time I might go with a CH3 instead of a CH2 around the decrease. I changed the corners to chain corners instead of rounded corners. This is a paid pattern that was gifted to me.

Peacock Feather Square

Peacock FeatherToday’s Square: Peacock Feather Square
Size: 5 inch
Pattern By: April Garwood
Hook: H
Yarn: Worsted weight acrylic RHSS turqua, royal, ocean; Caron Colour Perfect slate blue.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: I’m ambivalent about this square. It’s a neat concept but a little tricky. I like to change colors in a different spot every time, but the stitches were so asymmetrical I couldn’t wrap my head around it. It was pretty misshapen after round 4, but I added a round of DC before round 5 and it squared it up pretty well. This is the 6 inch September Square in the 2014BAMCAL on Ravelry.

Pineapple Dreams

Pineapple DreamsToday’s Square: Pineapple Dreams
Size: 10.5 inch
Pattern By: Julee Reeves
Hook: H
Yarn: Worsted weight acrylic RHSS turqua, royal; Caron Colour Perfect slate Blue.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: I enjoy making pineapple patterns but really, there’s not a lot of different ones out there to make in square form. I like this one for the addition of the extra little flower in the middle! It was designed as a dish cloth, so I’m guessing the flower is supposed to be the “scrubbie” part. I should have added a round of DC to stabilize it–I like for my pineapple points to be a little farther away from the edges. It was easy to do and I would make it again.

This is the September main square in the 2014BAMCAL on Ravelry.
