Crochet

As well as patchwork and quilting, I enjoy picking up my crochet hook, especially when the evenings are chilly. Here are some of the blankets I’ve made for our home, with links back to their Ta-Dah moments!

    I found your site and videos by looking for Solomons Knot tutorials and am now practicing the stitch. I really love your lace weight shawls, they are so beautiful, do you sell patterns?
    May I ask, do you think it’s possible to add beads when making the Solomon Knot or would they have to be sewn on when complete.
    Love your photos too!

    Hi Bec – I don’t sell patterns ‘cos I think everyone should experiment with stitches and then make up their own. Don’t be afraid – just go for it. I think, if adding beads, you’d need to have a light thread, carrying the threaded beads, worked in alongside your crochet – then you run a bead up the thread when you want to knot it in. I’m sure there are plenty of tutorials on YouTube!

    Your blankets are beautiful. Do you have a pattern for the edging border for the Misty Morning blanket? It is very pretty. I would love to use it on a granny blanket that I made. Thank you. Annie

    Hi Annie – I’ve sent you an email with some additional info about the pineapple crochet border. I worked this one ‘on the hoof’ and didn’t use a proper pattern.

    Hello – I absolutely LOVE the pattern you’ve used on your little footstool (the variation on tweed – is there a pattern, or just some brief written instructions…I can roughly see what you’re doing, but no idea how to start the pattern at the base…your work is stunning!

    OK – that was a challenge, I found the photos and couldn’t remember for the life of me how I’d done it! On closer examination, I think I’ve worked it out:
    Row 1 is a red row on the top of the footstool – chain the width of the footstool and then trebles all the way back.
    Row 1 is a white row and it’s simply 3 chains (for first treble) then 3 chains, miss 3 treble and 1 treble.
    Row 3 is a grey row and is the same as Row 1 – 3 treble into each chain space and (probably) a chain space between each group.
    I carried on like this and then added in a few granny squares that I had about and then added another bit of this tweedy stitch.

    The border was added all around after the crochet that fits the top is finished. I had to increase and decrease a bit to get it to fit the stool which I now see in a new light and must rescue from wherever it’s hiding in the house (probably with a pile of books or yarn on top of it). Good luck – glad you like my work.
