Benny’s blanket is finished 🙂 I’m so pleased with it and, more importantly, so is he 🙂 I completed the 24 smaller squares of 10 rounds each and then came my least favourite part…sewing in the ends! Here’s the pile of them (saved for stuffing of course).
Next came the best bit, crocheting it all together. I crocheted each square together using a double crochet stitch to create a raised seam on the right side. To do this you just place the pieces wrong sides together, line up the stitches and crochet through 2 stitches at once…simples 🙂
Finally I added a single round of white to finish it off and one small and very happy boy 🙂
Other news 🙂 Jack wants a blanket too (of course) so I have made a start on that already. He decided his colour scheme should be purple and blue with a hint of green. We have gathered all the wools and this will be the subject of my next blog post.
Finally, I’ve also made a start on a tutorial for a purse kit I am selling in my online store http://www.bekaboocrafts.com/ourshop/prod_2002045-Japan-Crafts-clasp-purse-kit.html. The instructions are great and its been easy to follow them but I always find it easier to follow photos.
Until next time, with love
