This probably is the most romantic part of this blanket: the hearts. I know some of you joined just because of this part 😀 . It maybe is also a challenge again. Not because it’s difficult, but just because you have to count more and keep your head with it. But it’s such a fun pattern to make. Frequently look to the frontside when working on the backside, because you will notice an error so much quicker there! I’ve added extra instructions with the pattern to help you keep on the right track with counting. So get your stitchmarkers already. Or some scrap threads, goodRead More →

Fun to see how it goes! It is so great to see how it goes with the previous 2 parts, the bottom border and the crosses.  It is not really visible here on the website, but on the facebook groups a lot of pictures are shown  (sorry for the ones who follow this without facebook).

Are you ready? Because here we go! We will start today with the pattern of the big blanket.  It was so nice to see how you worked on the practice piece.

Today is the day! We will start! Months of preparing, trying things out, designing, drawing and crocheting, thinking of how to setup the video’s, how I wanted to do the tutorials for the website pages, making pictures, writing pattern descriptions, today is the release of all that work. Not that I’m finished, because we still have a couple of weeks to go, but it was all such big fun to do. Yes, I am slightly nervous, because the interest is overwhelming, and so many people are looking forward to do this, that I still feel perplexed. But I’m walking around with a big smile 🙂Read More →
