Pattern By: me

Petal Play

Petal Play

Today’s Square: Petal Play
Size: 6 inch
Pattern By: Shelley Husband
Hook: H
Yarn: Worsted weight acrylic pink, white.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: A cute little square with a flower in the middle. Round 5 was much more awkward than it needed to be. After figuring out what was needed, I just winged it and it laid much flatter. I stopped with round 8 and changed it to SC instead of DC. This square would probably be nicer as a larger square so you could stabilize it a little more.

I Eventually Get Around to Things…

Multi PillowghanI started this pillowghan on July 27, 2012. All the squares were finished–they just had to be joined which seems to be my sticking point most of the time. Generally a pillowghan consists of 13 squares–12 for the afghan and one to make the pocket to turn it into a pillow. When you’re using the ‘ghan supposedly you can use the pocket to put your feet in.

Of course I decided to get tricky about it all and made 26 squares, thinking I’d like an oblong pillow. I didn’t think it through enough and so it kind of made the pocket not useable as a foot warmer unless you have the ‘ghan placed low on your lap. But it’ll still be useful.

It was a struggle to get all those squares folded and stuffed into the pocket. I double stitched with double strands when attaching the pocket to make sure it wouldn’t come off.

I’m not as happy with it as I would like, but at least I finished it and now I have space on my shelf to put another project!

Snowflake on the Square

Snowflake on Square

Today’s Square: Snowflake on the Square
Size: 6 inch
Pattern By: Laura Hickman
Hook: H
Yarn: Worsted weight acrylic pink, white.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: A nice little square with different possibilities depending on color usage. I made the square pretty much as written. She uses some non-standard notations like “dbl” instead of “dc”. I would make this again.

Vintage Floral Lace

Vintage Floral Lace Miller

Today’s Square: Vintage Floral Lace
Size: 6 inch
Pattern By: Melinda Miller
Hook: H
Yarn: Worsted weight acrylic pink, white.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: This is a cute little square I did for my mom’s bedspread. I’ve discovered that I still need more small squares to border it. As with all Melinda Miller’s patterns it’s well written and easy to follow. Since I used a smaller hook than specified, I changed the last round to DC from HDC and added a round of SC to make it six inches.

35 of 99

35 of 99

Today’s Square: 35 of 99
Size: 6 inch
Pattern By: Patricia Kristoffersen
Hook: H
Yarn: RHSS red, yellow, turqua; vintage Zayre Sayelle circustime.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: A fairly easy hexagon shape. Requires a lot of counting, especially if you do like I do and start other than where the pattern tells you. I can’t live by your rules, man. After round 4 you have a cute little star shape, too. That could be useful. From the book “99 Granny Squares to Crochet.”

6 of 99

6 of 99

Today’s Square: 6 of 99
Size: 8 inch
Pattern By: Anne Halliday
Hook: H
Yarn: Worsted weight acrylic RHSS turqua, dark plum; mystery yarn pink, rose, plum.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: This is a very airy square. I think reducing all the CH5 to CH4 might help it. I added a round of HDC to sort of firm it up and make it 8 inches. From the “99 Granny Squares to Crochet Book.
