The Flowers and Tiles Top has been added to my wardrobe and I’m very pleased! This crochet pattern is worked in motifs with a ribbed border. The ribbing around the edges took a long time, and almost as much yarn as all of the motifs. The ribbing was designed to be knitted, but I used crochet post stitches to imitate the knit look. If you’re interested in the details on how I worked it out, you can visit my project page on Ravelry for more info. Download the pattern to crochet one too. Pattern: Flowers … read more

Miniature Crochet Stroller Blanket

This is a dollhouse miniature version of a 3 x 4 foot baby blanket. I made this colorful little blankie by crocheting 20 motifs and stitching them together.

I’ve enjoyed crocheting jewelry with my skinny little steel hooks, but this is the first dollhouse-scale project I’ve embarked upon. I made this colorful little blankie by crocheting 20 motifs, then stitching them together with single crochet stitches. I used a single strand of embroidery floss with a 1.6 mm hook. It’s about 3 x 4 inches. At 1:12 dollhouse scale, the blanket is a miniature version of a 3 x 4 foot baby blanket.

Thread Crochet Doilies

Thread crochet doilies and small table runners make great portable or warm-weather projects. I used free patterns that I found online to create these two.

I’ve really been digging thread crochet lately. The open and lacy stitch patterns are loose and quick to work up, and it’s such a contrast from the tighter wearable items I usually make. After finishing these doilies, I picked up my regular ‘H’ hook and some worsted-weight yarn, and it felt like thick rope in my hands. It’s nice to switch it up sometimes! Doilies and small table runners make great portable or warm-weather projects. Both of these doily patterns are available for FREE online!
