Supplies:


For the photo’s in the pattern I used Stylecraft Chunky Silver and hook size 4mm. As I want to be tight and warm. I am a loose crocheter. They are a bit bigger then the multi color ones.


The multi color ones are made with hook size 4mm and Fenna Yarn (available in the Netherlands at Wibra). This yarn has a similar weight to Stylecraft DK Special.


Both wristies are made with the same pattern and same amount of stitches.

Crochet Mood Blanket 2014 - August Square by Pukado

Pffff I was worried I didn’t have enough time to come up with a new square for August with our holiday and my boy’s 5th Birthday this week. But it just came to me yesterday and I’m loving it!

First off all, we had a wonderful holiday in beautiful Bavaria, Germany. 
My Grandfather of 91 years lives there with my Uncle and Aunt.

When we lived in Ireland, it was difficult to visit. So now that we're back in the Netherlands we decided to go visit my grandfather every summer and make it a holiday to enjoy and relax. The weather is wonderful. There is a swimming pool close by for the kids to play in. The food is amazing and cheap. And according to my husband, there is no better beer!

Every year we book the same lovely holiday apartment. The apartment is great, big and modern and the views are just magnificent! It is run by a lovely family and if you ever decide to visit the lovely lovely area of the OberPfalz I can highly recommend the Kopp Family and their lovely holiday homes in UntermurnThal.


No we have to wait a whole year before we can go again.... *sigh*

And yes my baby boy turns 5(!!!!) this week. How? It seems like yesterday that we were in a mad rush to find a babysitter for the princess when my labour started. We had arranged for Granny to come over from the Netherlands to babysit and help out in the first week. But the boy decided to surprise us by arriving a week earlier then planned!

So a busy week ahead of us with lots of BBQ parties and celebrations.

But now onto my August square!


Hope you like it as well!


You can download it here on Ravelry


As usual, I’m using Stylecraft Special DK and hook size 4.5mm


In the pattern pictures I will be using cotton in different colors and hook size 4mm. I will fasten off after each round with an invisible join. If you make it in one color, you don’t need to fasten off every round.


Again first few rounds with pictures, the outer rounds are still the same, with the same amount of stitches!


So here it goes!

Crochainting - Crochet and a Canvas - Tutorial by Pukado

I just finished my flower cushion cover and I was loving it. It looked so bright and happy. Then I spotted the canvas I had stuck in a corner, I had the idea of making something artsyfartsy for my living room wall. I wanted something bright and happy above the sofa. I had a million ideas, but none of them I was able to realise.


But then it hit me! Why not recreate the cushion cover on canvas? So I made a bunch of flowers and just went from there on.. and it worked and I'm totally in love with it! It's hanging above the sofa, injecting color and happiness in my living room!






The feedback I received on facebook/instagram was overwhelming and amazing. So I will be recreating the canvas, a bit smaller, as the original is 100cm by 70 cm.

And I just notice there is a flower missing in the original canvas! Haha! Will fix that!

The canvas I will be using for this is 30cm by 40cm.

Other supplies:

Yarn:
Phildar No3 or Catania in different colors for the flowers
Catania Grande for the flower stems

Crochet hook size 3.5mm
Yarn needle with a sharp point

Scissors

Glue gun or glue dots

Pencil and ruler

Step 1:

Take the width of your canvas and calculate how many flowers you will need.
I have 40cm and will add a flower every 4 or 5 cm, I like it a bit uneven. So I will need 8 flowers.
It will depend on how big your flowers are. I will only use 2Rounds flowers (so flowers created with only 2 DC or HDC rounds)

Crochet 8 flowers of your choice.



Draw lightly with a pencil lines on your canvas.



 Take your Green Catania Grande for the stems and your needle.

Insert needle from back to front, just above the wood on your line. Go around the canvas and insert your hook again from back to front.



Stitch along the line evenly (not too even, as nature is not always evenly as well).


For the leaves, insert needle to the side of the stem and stitch 3 times in the same stitch.



Repeat stitching along the lines, adding randomly leaves to the stem.



Back side of the canvas





With sticky dots or a glue gun attach flowers to canvas on top of stems. To make it secure, add some stitches to each centre of flower.



And you're done!
