Merry Christmas in July! It is becoming tradition for me to create a fun Christmas blanket project in the month of July. A few of the past years projects include my Crochet Christmas Lights Blanket and my Gift Box Granny Square Blanket. This year I made an adorable Corner-to-Corner Crochet Christmas Owl Blanket! It’s actually a fairly quick project, especially if you are already familiar with the C2C technique. It’s baby blanket size, measuring approximately 40×40 inches but you could always make it bigger by continuing the border.

Materials:
2 skeins of Bernat Super Value Yarn in and Lush Green and Topaz (you may not need both skeins of topaz but it is much easier to have both attached when working on this blanket)
1 skein of Bernat Super Value Yarn in Black, White, Berry Red, Mushroom, Walnut, and Bright Yellow.
Shop all colors HERE on Yarnspirations.com!
– Size H Crochet Hook
– Tapestry Needle
– Christmas Owl Pixel Graph

I used the Corner-to-Corner (C2C) method to crochet the graph. If you aren’t familiar with the C2C technique, I have a video class available HERE for purchase that teaches you this technique! This blanket is square so you don’t have to worry about increasing on one side and decrease on the other (like you would need to do in a rectangle blanket). So the square shape makes it less confusing if you are a newbie to corner-to-corner crochet. The Crochet Crowd also has a very helpful video tutorial for free that shows you the basic technique of corner-to-corner crochet. Check that out HERE.

Most Corner-to-Corner crochet projects are completely reversible! This one is too! The Santa hat will facing the other direction on the backside.

You will need to download your pixel graph. I created two color options for you but of course you can use whatever colors of yarn you desire! Did I mention that there are over 50 choices in the Bernat Super Value line?!

Download the Pixel Graph version 1 HERE and version 2 HERE



Here are some corner-to-corner crochet tips that I filmed while making the blanket! I go over changing color, making a border, and then I show a little of the candy cane edging!

Don’t you just love the candy cane border!
You can find the full tutorial HERE.

Thanks to my oldest son for stepping in as my crochet model this time! Zoe was at camp and I had this guy at home during photoshoot time Between the matching santa hat and his rimmed glasses, I think he coordinates with the blanket perfectly!

I have some very exciting news to share today! It is with great pleasure and gratitude that I am able to announce that I wrote my second crochet book! Crochet Cute Critters features 26 beginner-friendly animal amigurumi patterns! You will be able to crochet a zoo full of adorable animals friends by following step-by-step instructions for stitching, detailing, and stuffing. Every animal shares the same basic head and body pattern, allowing you to carry your practice and experience from project to project!

This book has been in the works for over a year. Many long days and nights spent crocheting, writing, and working up each and every one of the patterns you will find in this book (plus a few that didn’t make it into the book!). Photos, stitch tutorials, so many rounds of edits. I poured my heart and soul into this. Working in between my usual blogging and designing hours and kids and family schedules. It’s been tough but sooo worth it because I feel incredibly blessed to have had this opportunity. Even when the process can be hard and tedious, I truly enjoy being a crochet designer! Sharing my patterns with you is so rewarding and I am beyond thankful for your support!

Crochet Cute Critters will be released on August 20th, 2019, but is currently on pre-order right now at Amazon.com!! The current price on the book is $16.99 but the awesome thing about Amazon pre-orders is that if you place your order now, you will automatically get the lowest price offer published between now and August 2nd. After talking with my publisher, I feel pretty confident that this book will go on sale before August 2nd! That means that you will only be charged the lowest price that you see between now and August 2nd!

Another thing about Amazon pre-orders is that they are crucial for book sales. Amazon takes pre-orders VERY seriously when ranking new books, which ultimately dictates the level of its success. So if you have it in your heart (and budget) to pre-order a copy RIGHT HERE I would be eternally grateful!

Even if you aren’t able to buy it, I’d love it if you could share it with your friends. That costs $0 and still helps me tremendously by getting the word out!

Are you read to Crochet Cute Critters, from A-to-Z?!Alex the Alligator, Freddy the Fox, Walter the Whale, Zina the Zebra…choose from 26 lovable designs that span the entire animal kingdom.

Thank you so much for all the love and support you have shown me! It means the world to me!

Over the next few weeks I promise to share many more images and excerpts with you! Stay tuned!

Today is my birthday! I can’t believe it but I am celebrating the last year of my 30’s. I’m 39 years old today! My 30’s have been amazing and I still have lots more in store for the next 365 days! I’ve been back on my Weight Watchers diet for the past two months so I am trying my best not to indulge in too many desserts. Fortunately this Crochet Birthday Cake is calorie-free and will last forever!

I purchased these styrofoam cake rounds from Amazon. They come in a set of 4 measuring 3, 4, 5, and 6 inches in diameter. The crochet pattern is specifically made to fit these specific rounds. I didn’t use the smallest (3 inch diameter) round but you could easily include it if you wanted to.

Rose:
With yellow yarn:
Chain 15, 5 DC in 3 rd chain from hook then chain 2 and slip stitch into the same stitch, SC in next, repeat making 7 petals. Fasten off and curl into a spiral so the petals take the shape of a rose. Stitch together so it doesn’t come undone. Stitch onto top of cake.

Leaves (make 2): You can find my leaf pattern HERE.

I used toothpicks poked through the styrofoam to stack the 3 layers! You could hot glue them or you could carefully stitch the bottom edge of one crochet cake layer to the top of the next. But that might be tedious. The toothpicks worked great and they are removable in case you ever want to make this cake again in different colors!

Thank you so much to all of you for the well wishes and continued support! This crochet blog has been a huge blessing and I wouldn’t be where I am at without all of you! I appreciate it so much and love celebrating with all of you virtually! xoxo

I stumbled upon the cutest crochet coaster over at Yarnspirations.com! It’s called the Spring Flower Coaster and the design is absolutely stunning! Think of all the color combos you could make! It’s a beautiful decor piece for your Spring and Summer table settings.

I am using Bernat Super Value yarn but the pattern calls for Bernat Handicrafter Cotton. I love how it looks like a sunflower when you work up the pattern in brown and yellow.

I’ve been craving hamburgers and cheeseburgers! Probably because I’m back on Weight Watchers (see my weight loss journey HERE). I’m trying to shed a few pounds for the summer season. Fortunately these cuties are zero caloreis! These crochet hamburgers can be used as hotpads (probably not the one with the safety eyes), or a toddler bib, applique, panel for a backpack, little pillow, part of a hat, or stitch two together to make a little cuddle buddy! The possibilities are endless!

Finished size is approximately 8 inches x 8 inches

Materials:
Bernat Super Value Yarn in Mushroom Brown, Lush Green, Taupe Dark Brown, Bright Yellow, Berry, and a little bit of Black for the embellishments.
Shop all colors HERE on Yarnspirations.com
– Size H Crochet Hook
– 9mm Black Safety Eyes (optional)
– Tapestry Needle

I finished my spike stitch blanket! I love this pattern because it is so easy to make it as big or small and wide or skinny as you want. Plus it’s one of those mindless projects with repetitive stitches that you can work on here or there, while watching TV, and easily take it on the go!

I actually based it off of my Reversible Spike Stitch Pillow that I made for Yarnspirations a few years ago. You can find that pattern HERE. I used Bernat Maker Home Dec for the pillow and Caron Simply Soft in these gorgeous coordinating shades of greens/blues for this spike stitch blanket. I love how it reminds me of the ocean and I couldn’t resist adding a Flamingo Applique to the corner!

You can find the Flamingo Applique Pattern HERE in a previous post.

Materials:
Caron Simply Soft:
2 skiens of Pagoda – the color Ocean would also work (color 1)
2 skeins of Cool Green (color 2)
2 skeins of Soft Green (color 3)
2 skeins of Off White (color 4)
Shop all colors HERE on yarnspirations.com!
– Size H Crochet Hook
– Tapestry Needle
– Pom Pom Maker (optional)

Finished Size: 38×38 inches… but feel free to make it longer!

Note: Starting chain can be in multiples of 4 +1 so to make a smaller blanket your starting chain could be 93.

Pattern:
Starting with color 1
Chain 137, SC in second chain from hook and the rest of the way down chain, chain 1, turn
Row 2-3: SC in each stitch across, chain 1, turn (136 SC)
With color 2
Row 4: *SC, Spike stitch 1 row down, Spike stitch 2 rows down, Spike stitch 3 rows down*, Repeat this sequence (from * to *) until end of row. You should have 34 spike stitch sequences, chain 1, turn
Row 5-7: SC in each stitch across, chain 1, turn (136 SC)
With color 3
Row 8: same as row 4
Row 9-11: SC in each stitch across, chain 1, turn (136 SC)
With color 4
Row 12: same as row 4
Row 13-15: SC in each stitch across, chain 1, turn (136 SC)
Repeat as above, changing colors as needed!
make it as long as you want!
I repeat the 4 color sequence 13 times.
I decided to end with one row of spike stitches + one row of SC stitches in the darkest blue (the color I started with) just to make the top and bottom match!

No need to add a border but add a pompom to each of the 4 corners for a fun finishing touch!

Video below for a better visual on how to make the spike stitch!

I couldn’t resist this Flamingo dress that matches the flamingo applique! You can get the same dress HERE on Amazon (affiliate link).
