Commission Lapghan

Recently, I completed a lapghan on commission for a lovely elderly lady. I did not follow any pattern, but made it up as I went along. I used a variegated yarn, and 4.5mm hook. Here is what the end result.

I am particularly pleased with how the edging came out . I used a surface crochet technique to create the beige edging. Here is a close up:

A uber-soft baby blanket

I came across this super soft thick yarn – the Katia Bambi range and fell in love with the colours as well the texture – it is so luxurious and velvety – and ideal for a baby blanket. So, I decided to make a modern granny square version and not being a fan of the traditional pink or blue, opted for a more neutral combination of lilac and yellow.

While the yarn is gorgeous, it is not very forgiving if you need to do any rework – so, avoid making mistakes :).

Hope it inspires you!

Froggie Bonnet – a slightly different version

It’s been a while since I’ve published a post, but rest assured, I haven’t been crochet idle (ha ha – is that even a term?) – While I haven’t spent as much time as I would have liked on projects, here is a commission I recently completed.

A while back, I published a post with a free pattern for a froggie bonnet. I was asked if I could make a slight variation of that with the main differences being the straps are ribbed and are extension of the rib border. I also thought that the eye’s would look awesome with a bit of a sparkle, so decided to use a yarn with a gold strand through it.

The biggest challenge, believe it or not, was actually positioning the eyes. Once that was sorted, the bonnet finally made its way to it’s new owner, Amelie – and here she is!
