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:
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!
I’m so happy with this gorgeous baby blanket which I made for a friend . It’s using the same technique as in my last post (Colourful Lapghan). Next up will be a cute little girls handbag…..keep a lookout for it!
I’ve been rather busy putting this very colourful lapghan together . It’s similar to the Colourful Lined Baby blanket I made some time back . Hope you like it! I’m now working on one in pastel colours. Check back soon for updates!
