Crochet {two}


Here is another crochet project that I was asked to do a couple of weeks before Christmas.  A Christening Shawl.   It needed to be done before I went away and I had no pattern, but I did have a chrochet shawl that my oldest son recieved when he was born, so I copied that.

I am sorry but I don't have the exact measurements, and I was so rushed with it, I didn't write the pattern down ...

Fortunately I was able to work out the correct stitches and did more rows on each section as the yarn and crochet hook were a different size.

Yarn:  'Spring clour' Cotton (Benidgo Wool Mills)
Hook:  4.5 mm

Crochet {one}

For the past 12 months I have been going through a 'crochet faze'.   This was my first rug, and I have used lots of 'granny squares'. 294 to be exact.  By the time I had sewed them all together it was quite large.

For the edging I did 1 row of double (dc), and then another row of treble(tr) with shell pattern at the seam of every square.

I have decided to start recording my crochet here on my blog.  I hope that is ok with all my papercrafting friends.  I just want to keep a detailed record of my wool craft too. 

The yarn that I have used for this rug is from Bendigo Wool Mills.  The yarn is 'classic' and comes in a 200g ball (which is great for rugs), and the colours are:

Lipstick Rose
