Tiny Treat Bowl

tiny pumpkin bowlToday’s Project: Crochet Pumpkin Treat Bowl
Size: 3 x 3
Pattern By: Meredith Crawford
Hook: H
Yarn: RHSS in pumpkin, hunter green
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: This cute little bowl was the October CAL in the Red Heart Group on Ravelry. It only took a couple of hours to make (at a leisurely pace, probably the only pace I have these days). It’s very tiny so it wouldn’t hold many treats but I think it’d be great filled with Hershey’s Kisses. I modified the lid just a tad by adding one extra decrease round, and one extra finishing round. For the stem I just did two rows of SC and attached it in some odd, convoluted manner that seemed like a good idea at the time.

Simply Squared Granny

Simply Squared Granny

Today’s Square: Simply Squared Granny
Size: 4.25 inch
Pattern By: AYYA Handmade
Hook: H
Yarn: Worsted weight acrylic mystery yarn in claret
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: This is a cute little square–I like the star shaped pattern in the middle. The pattern has both chart and illustrated written instructions. The chart actually came in handy when I got confused at one point!

17 of 99

17 of 99Today’s Square: 17 of 99
Size: 4 inch
Pattern By: Mary Ann Sipes
Hook: H
Yarn: Red Heart Classic emerald; mystery yarn teal, apple green.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: I’m ambivalent about this square. It’s quick to make, but the front post split clusters in round 2 are fiddly. If you don’t place the FP stitches on the second leg just so, it looks twisted (as mine does). Not fantastic enough to go through the annoyance. I’m not a fan of FP stitches anyway! From the 99 Granny Squares to Crochet book.

Golden Shells 2015

Golden Shells 2015

Today’s Square: Golden Shells
Size: 6.5 inch
Pattern By: Jean Leinhauser
Hook: H
Yarn: Red Heart Classic emerald, RHSS Dark Thyme.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: Another revisited square from the 50 Fabulous Squares to crochet book. I first did this one in 2012 and enlarged it to 10 inches for my pillowghan. This time I omitted the last round and did the corners in the last three rounds with a stitch-CH-stitch combo. It looks better in the smaller version.

Chevron Pillow

Christmas pillowToday’s Square: Chevron Pillow
Size: 13 x 10.6 inch
Pattern By: Marianne Forrestal
Hook: H
Yarn: Worsted weight acrylic RHSS Paddy Green, Hot Red.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: I did something a little different and made a pillow. A pillow in Christmas colors! I used a smaller hook than called for and my pillow was 3 inches smaller all around than the pattern. Instead of using a pillow form as directed, I stuffed it with fiberfill. I’m not entirely satisfied with my whip stitching on the ends. If I made another one, I will carry two colors across so there’s less chance of seeing the color bleed through every other stripe.

I took this project traveling with me to the doctor. While I was waiting for the bus, several random people exclaimed “Christmas in July!” as they passed by me. 😀

Today’s Square: 75 of 99
Size: 3.75 inch
Pattern By: Mary Ann Sipes
Hook: H
Yarn: Worsted weight acrylic mystery yarn dark/light rose.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: This is a tiny little square–only 2.75 inches as written. The center construction makes a nice little bit of dimensional work, though my picture doesn’t do it justice. I added a round of DC. From the book 99 Granny Squares to Crochet.

Sunny Day 2015

Today’s Square: Sunny Day
Size: 6.5 inch
Pattern By: Janie Herrin
Hook: H
Yarn: Worsted weight acrylic RHSS yellow, pumpkin, brown.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: I did this one back in 2012. Rounds three and four called for CH4 spaces which I thought were a bit much, so this time I made them CH3. I liked it better. From the book 50 Fabulous Crochet Squares.
