A nice and simple surrounding border When you’ve finished crocheting row 160a, do not cut off the yarn of color 1. The thread of color 2 can be cut off and you can darn in the end. We will now make a border of single crochets around the entire blanket with color 1, and we will only work into the outer border. This will make that the blanket gets a nice straigth edge. DThe border stitches of color 2 do not need finishing. They look good already because of the weaving through because of how the pattern was designed. Important! Take a smaller hook thanRead More →

Late blog Hi everyone! Today the blog that was promised. I wasn’t feeling well this week, so I published the new pattern a day earlier when I felt things going down, but without the accompanying blog. Some of you are already finished with the new pattern! But here is the blog. I’m doing fine again by the way! Thank you very much for all you kind wishes! The butterflies It was nice to see that you also liked the butterflies so much. There even was a person that used this pattern and the suns to make a very cute doll blanket. Really fun to seeRead More →

Looks like cars, don’t you think so? It’s always a bit subjective with these small patterns, but my first thought really was little cars 🙂 . On a 4-lane way, in a traffic jam. I always have to think of that crazy Dutch song of Andre van Duin  🙂 . For the ones who do not know this: here is the video. Could be something that’s from before your time of course, but it’s still funny 🙂 . There was a lot of guessing again on facebook , and some guessed it right of course 🙂 . Did you see the back by the way?Read More →

The little fishies It was a bit exciting last week:  would you like the first part of the mystery-part of the HAL CAL? Apparently you did 🙂 . Thank goodness 🙂 . Phew! So I was very glad with your reactions!  This week diamonds There was some guessing of course what it would be this week, and the hint was quite obvious this time 🙂 . Drop the name ‘James Bond’, and then it’s clear of course. But please keep guessing the next weeks, because it really makes me smile. My husband asks me why I’m grinning when I read your guesses, well, that’s whyRead More →
