Holidays, blankets and patterns
Not too bad a start today, sunny for once I hope that it stays for a while. Snow was forecast but it looks pretty good out there.
Update on blankets
The Caron Cakes blanket is finished, pattern still in progress and the Stylecraft new colours one, is almost done.
I thought that I had not done a free pattern for some time so here are the instructions for the square that I used for the Lockton blanket. There are not instructions for borders or the blanket just how to make the squares. I hope you like this one..
If you would like to use the same colours for this one I will be making a pack available on Wool to your Door.
It has not been tested so you will all be my testers,
Pdf download from here Lockton Squares if you have any problems please message me and I will try to help.
We had a week away last week staying in a cottage in Lockton, a village not far from Whitby. We had an eventful week, our son in law broke his arm on Easter Monday and we had a terrible journey to take him to hospital in Scarborough. Then we needed to bring his car home and our second car back so that we could get everyone home on the Friday. We all still had a nice time and our grandsons managed to fit in trips on the miniature railway and the Sea Life centre in Scarborough. We also visited some gardens at a house near Pickering. As you can see Louise and I planned to crochet while we were away.
Wool to your Door
I am starting to add printed patterns to the shop, which I will send out in the post, this is because I just realised that not everyone has a printer. I am afraid that they will cost more than the PDF downloads. Printed pattern are here.
The PDF downloads will still be available here on Ali Crafts Designs as well.
I have great difficulty in naming my designs sometimes it can take a while for something to pop into my head and for others the name can come first even before I have worked a stitch.
As you will see from the latest pattern name I usually name blankets from some of the places that I have visited. Dolls and scarves have girls names unfortunately there are not many boy names that I have used, apart from Fred Bear and his family of bears and Milo with his sister Millie. Even the groom does not have a name he is just Groom !!!! :} Crochet is not really a medium that is suited to boys and men apart from scarves, baby jackets and some toys. Although when I was looking online the other day I found a pair of mens shorts......... noooooo......... that should not be done in my crochet world.
Thank you for reading my blog,
Talk again next week
