Rectangle Dolly Blanket

My niece has requested another dolly blanket, so this is what I came up with quickly in one afternoon while my son had his nap. I saw a picture of a granny rectangle which links to the pattern, I didn't follow the pattern, just used the picture as a guide. I did one lareg rectangle this time instead of lots of little squares like last time as I think there is less chance of it coming undone. I used brightly coloured acrylic so its easier to wash if it needs it, and a 4mm hook. I couldn't resist a fun fluffy white edge!

Fawn and Sky Scarf

I finished this fawn and sky scarf months ago but only have just managed to block it and photograph it. I made it to use up the last of the sky blue 8ply and again paired it with the fawn 8 ply pure wool like I did for the fawn and sky bunny rug. I don't know who will ever use this scarf, I don't think it gets quite cold enough here to use a scarf. For this I used my favourite 4mm hook, and I sewed in the ends of each blue stripe so the edges are left as they are, with a slight rustic look. The scarf is 1.6m long.

Pink Round Bunny Rug

I only just finished this one the other day, its been languishing in my project basket for months. I'm glad to have finally finished it, adding a delicate white edge. The pattern for the white edge was (sk 1 3 sc sk 1 sl st) repeated which made for smaller scallops. I used 5 ply pure wool my mum gave me, the same wool I used for the pink home shrug, and a 3.5mm hook.

Fawn Round Rug

I finished this round lap rug months ago, but only just realised I haven't blogged about it yet. I must have finished it during the period of time I was without a camera! This is made from the left over 8 ply in fawn that I also used for another round rug that has sky blue stripes. Its the same pattern I use for my round rugs, and this one is a good size for a lap rug, not too big and not too small. For this I used my favourite hook, a size 4mm.

Two Toddler Spiral Hats

Its been quite a while since I've blogged about some crochet, that's because I've been in 'bit of a phase' with it, having not been feeling like doing it. Issues with my camera have not helped either, which has been very frustrating and a bit depressing. But here are two toddler sized spiral hats I've managed to finish, these are like the spiral hat in leaf, lavender and lotus I made back in May. Its my own design, I hope one day to be able to write the pattern down. It looks like a striped hat but is in fact a spiral at the crown, which is very tricky to do. I don't know how I'm going to be able to explain how I do it, a photo tutorial will be essential. For these I used luxury wool from Bendigo and a 4mm hook.
