Round Pillow – DIY Crochet

I am recently into crocheting so much this is my 3rd post in row about my crochet projects. Pattern for this round pillow can be found at http://www.redheart.com. I used Lily Sugar’n Cream 100% cotton no#4 yarn with H hook.

Round Pillow

 

Each pillow needs 2 round pcs, 1 with ruffle and the other without ruffle.

To make the insert pillow, cut 2 pcs 18″ diameter fabric, sew the wrong side together then flip, fill with poly fiber, then sew close. (I drew the circle using pencil tied to a piece of 9″ long yarn)

Finishing : Stitch 2 round crochet pcs together with pillow insert inside, it might seem tight but it will eventually stretch to fit the pillow nicely.

Cotton Candy Baby Blanket – DIY crochet

I name this baby blanket Cotton Candy Blanket as it reminds me of the fluffy and puffy cotton candy, don’t you think so ? This is a simple puff stitch commonly used in making blanket, found the pattern online. I added fabric liner on the inside for practical purpose when wrapping the baby.

It uses 2 strains of no#4 yarn (Lion Brand Baby Soft) with K hook. Here is the pattern :

– Chain multiple of 3 stitches then add 2 at the end. Basically we just chain the length to the measurement desired in multiple 3 chains then add 2 chains at the end.

– Single Crochet (SC) at the 1st stitch from the hook then 2 Double Crochets (DC) at the same space, skip 2 and repeat.

– At the end, SC at 1 last chain, chain 2 then turn.

– Repeat the pattern 1 SC, 2 DC at the space between 2 puff.

Crochet Baby Cloche – DIY

Happy New Year 2013!

In the last 2 days of last year finally I was able to check one of my 2012 resolution which is crocheting. It all began when I saw so many pins in pinterest about crochet projects… so cute and adorable, I wished I had somebody to teach me how to do it… well Mr. Google came to help.

Here is my second project, made it yesterday, took about 3 hours. Click here for the link to the pattern.

I can see crocheting is one of the way to meditate, saying prayer and wish in doing the stitches is really calming and relaxing, specially prayer for the person to whom this project is dedicated 🙂

Baby cloche

My CH, SC, DC, HDC, TC, SlTc practice. I bought the yarn months before during sale for $1, at that time I didn’t know that certain size of yarn needs certain hook and what material works best for what project, I just picked whatever available on sale.
