Crochet Lacy Baby Blanket, Pound of Love Yarn, Crochet Pattern and Video Tutorial

Happy New Year! It's been a while since I updated my blog! 

I've been crocheting more than ever, and creating new patterns, and filming and editing tutorials! 

I really want to share this lates one! It's just too cute, and not complicated at all, and made with a budget-friendly yarn!




The lacy stitch is easy and quick to work! The border is quite simple too, just a couple of rows on double crochets, and a row of beautiful pointy shells!



The finished size of the blanket made with one ball of Pound of Love by Lionbrand yarns is 43 by 33 inches. The pattern can be easily adjusted to other sizes as well (the multiple for the stitch is included in the pattern). Hook size H (5 mm). 



 







The written pattern is available in my Etsy and Ravelry shops! 

I also have a very detailed, free video tutorial on my youtube channel!

Bernat Softee Chunky Lacy Hat and Scarf Crochet Set, Video Tutorial and Written Pattern

It is still summer in the Northern hemisphere, but I am already working on fall/winter crochet projects!

This chunky lacy hat is the variation of the baby lacy hat that I made a couple of years ago. Since then, people have been asking me how to adjust that pattern for the adult size. 

The pattern is very easy, and there are only nine rounds. 




The yarn is Bernat Softee Chunky in color Forest. Only one skein is needed for the hat. Hook size K (6.5 mm)

Buy this yarn on Amazon!

I loved how the hat turned out, so I decided to make a matching scarf. I wasn't sure how chunky lacy fabric will drape when wearing the scarf, but it drapes quite nicely! 







The scarf took three skeins of Bernat Softee Chunky yarn, and the color that I used is Seagreen. 

And with a fourth skein, I got a lovely set! 



 

Video tutorials for both hat and scarf and available on my Youtube channel.

How I Wet Block and Spray Starch my Lacy, Crochet Motifs Tablecloth


Hello crochet friends!

In this post I want to share my very simple process of wet blocking a crochet lacy tablecloth or crochet doilies. 

There are only five easy steps:

1. Soak the tablecloth in lukewarm water. Gently squeeze out the water.
2. Place a towel on a flat surface. Lay the tablecloth on the towel.
3. Gently stretch, shape, and straighten the motifs and the stitches.
4. Use spray starch such as Niagara. Shake well. Spray generously onto the tablecloth.
5. Leave to dry.

I also filmed a video of each step! 



 

Thank you for stopping by!
