A few crochet projects

Here are a few projects I have crocheted recently.

This is a baby blanket I made for one of my nieces when she had her first baby. It uses a very simple single crochet/chain one pattern called Woven Stitch and worked up very quickly.

This is a very thick cozy baby blanket I crocheted before one of my children was born. It is worked in a 2 double crochet/1 single crochet shell pattern called Ripple Stitch which gives it a nice texture.

I crocheted this pastel block baby blanket while I was expecting our second child, using a simple double crochet square with a single crochet white border. My husband was so sure the baby was a boy that he tried to convince me to leave out the pink blocks. I should have listened!

This is the afghan I crocheted for my younger daughter. It is done in the same stitch as the striped afghan above and in soft princess colors. So girly!

This is my son's afghan, done in the same stitch as my daughter's but in boldly colored even stripes bordered in black. Very manly!

I will be sharing these crochet techniques and patterns with you in the coming weeks and months. I am looking forward to providing helpful hints and video tutorials of how to begin a project and how to do individual stitches, so check back often!

Coming up next will be my knitting history and some pictures of recent knitting projects. Stay tuned!

  • Neat looking afgans! I know someone who crochets all the time and these remind me so much of her. She made a very nice zig-zag pattern with complimentary colors for a friend and it was beautiful. Good luck with all your projects!

  • Is a ripple stitch and a bobble stitch the same? Or produce the same effect?

  • The ripple stitch and the bobble stitch are two different stitches. The ripple stitch is much flatter and produced with a sc,2dc pattern. The bobble stitch is much more pronounced and 3 dimensional and is produced using anywhere from 5 to 9 or more double crochets worked together. Check out my sidebar for links to these stitches under crochet.

    Thanks so much for writing!

  • Hello,

    You certainly seem to have an eye for color! I like them all, and thanks for sharing.

    Kind regards.

  • Hello,

    Thanks for sharing this pattern stitch! I like the textured look it gives, I'll bet it makes a warm afghan as well(because of the stitch definition)!

    It also reminds me of the sc in space(ch), dc in space(ch) pattern, which also gives a similar look.

    Thank you!

  • I love the ripple stitch blanket... do you know what kind of yarn you used or could you suggest a type of yarn that would yield the same effect

  • The ripple stitch blanket was made using Red Heart Baby Clouds yarn, but any fluffy chunky or bulky weight yarn would do the trick. Here's a link to Red Heart Baby Clouds yarn: http://www.redheart.com/yarn/baby-clouds so you can see what it looks like.
