Works In Progress

I have three projects currently going on. I have neon blanket, the Tetris blanket ( because it does look almost like Tetris squares) and a net ripple shawl.

Dishcloths

I have two dishcloths to share. One is a basket weave pattern using alternating front and back post double crochet. The other is shells using alternating single and double crochet.

I have a craft fair coming up next month, and there will be more wash cloths coming up.

Chevron Egg


So now that it is egg making season, I present to you my chevron egg pattern. As you can see I made a bunch of these using a variety of differnt yarns and hook size. I like using the fingering weight with the size e hook.

So here is my pattern:

This egg is made in continuous rounds.

Row 1: 6 sc in second chain from hook (or in the ring)
