Picot’s are something I had only ever used on the edge of a design so I was excited to discover this stitch that I used in our projects for the Hooked on Crochet Club this month – the Picot Single Crochet. This stitch is so simple to make – feels even more simple than a picot! And it creates cute little textured “dots” on top of a crochet fabric. You could slip this stitch in anwhere on a fabric filled with single crochets. If you prefer UK terms, then you might know it as a picot double crochet. Not a member of the Hooked on Crochet Club?

The perfect stash busting granny blanket.

Happy New Year! Who has promised themselves that that will not buy any yarn until they’ve used up their stash? I’m sure it’s something we all say at least once in our crochet lifetime. I know that I will never ever use up my entire stash, but I do put some plans in place to use up the yarn that I bought just to have just in case I ever needed it. One of these plans is to make a square a day and create blankets or cushions or anything else that takes my fancy. And this is why I decided to experiment a bit with the blanket that I am sharing today as your granny suqare inspiration. One thing I ha ..read more

What does the future hold…

This seems to be the time of year where we look back and reflect on what was and what we want our next year to look like. I don’t want to jinx it, but it is definitely feeling like the world is starting to open up and a new ‘almost back to normal’ is settling in. I kind of like some of the changes that have evolved though. We’ve learned a whole new way to communicate and exist that we wouldn’t have learned if we hadn’t been forced into lockdowns and isolation. The online world has definitely grown and with it a new sense of freedom. For me, I am loving that the changes have allowed me to conne ..read more

Pick a washcloth…

I’ve just finished my third series of washcloths and I’m ready to embark on my forth! Many of you might wonder why I bother designing and making so many and here is why… Washcloths are a wonderful tool for learning. The beauty of a washcloth is that it is a small enough project to keep a beginner motivated and a large enough project for an experienced crocheter to whip up quickly as an inbetween project. This means that it is a perfect opportunity for someone to try out a new stitch or technique without all of the overwhelm. And if it is less than perfect it doesn’t really matter because it wi ..read more

Christmas Wreath with Granny Squares

I’m told that Christmas is coming, so I decided to dust off my Christmas coloured yarns for this month’s granny square inspiration! I was going through a box of craft things when I discovered a foam ring that I had found and not used yet, so I decided to create a wreath. And so I did! I’m sure that you could get craftier as well by adding some other Christmas embelishments – and I might still do that, who knows! This one was made with a 4ply cotton and a 2.5mm hook. I wanted to keep the squares as dense as possible. I then joined with a sparkly yarn. The foam wreath underneath is approximately ..read more

Stitches for Texture

I don’t know wbout you, but texture is one of my favourite themes to work with in the Hooked on Crochet Club, so I thought I would reshare a couple of my favourites with you! Front and Back post double crochet. They feel awkward when you first start using them, but once you get the hang of them, and remember which one is which, they are a fun and easy way to create texture. And they’re the stitches used to create the basket weave stitch, which I’ve also included here. Have you given these a go before? Which are your favourites? If you’re someone that forgets the names of stitches or how to ma ..read more

If you need to practice your front post stitches, then this washcloth is perfect for you! This month’s washcloth is worked in the round with the added bonus of some texture created by front post double crochet (front post treble in UK terms).

This washcloth will be sent to all of my current Hooked on Crochet Club members this weekend – if you you’re not a member yet, but are curious to know more, then be sure to head here.

You can never have enough bookmarks…

I don’t know about you, but I’m a big reader. Maybe not as big a reader as I was before kids and work and life kicked in as an adult, but I definitely read daily and still love to get lost in a book. Which also means that I am always wanting a new bookmark! So for this month’s granny square inspiration I decided to make one. And to play around with colours too!. I don’t usually play with colour changes, but it was fun to give it a go on this small project. I used some yarn and colours must have minis in my stash, some beads i bought ages ago (because you never know when you need them!), and a ..read more
