Monochrome and colour crochet

Just a quick post tonight- I wanted to show you my latest crochet works in progress!

I've been having fun with 1 colour crochet. Not something I've done much of for a long time, but I do love the effect. It feels more early 20th century vintage style somehow than bright colours mixed together, which I think gives a more 1960s-70s vibe - both are great of course!

The pattern used in the above is my vintage flower square pattern, which I posted the other week. 

I have another new motif design too, which I've also been working in single colour. This is another of my own designs and I hope to post a tutorial in the next few weeks:

Just for fun and because I have a lot of colourful cotton at the moment, I thought I'd also try the second motif pattern in brights too. This is my stash of Rowan Cotton Glace:

Well, I hope you all enjoy the long weekend - I'm away at S's until Monday now, but who knows, perhaps by then I may have a finished cushion cover or two to share with you!

  2. Lovely crochet work, I like all the squares!

  4. I have crocheted for years. The monochrome squares are beautiful and would love to have the pattern

  5. Hi! i love yr blog - so crochety and colourful :) - could you please tell me where you bought the Rowan stash from?

  6. Wow! These are all gorgeous, I really like the ones in cream, they remind me of lace!

  7. How do I get the pattern for the blanket? I was going to make it and it's like the original post has disappeared!

  8. Hi! Lovely pattern. What yarn (or fiber & weight) did you use or recommend? Did you ever post a complete pattern for the blanket that you could point me to? Many thanks!

    1. Carolion, the yarn used was Rowan Cotton Glace, which is a DK weight mercerised cotton yarn. You can buy similar from Pattons also. I am afraid I don't think I made a pattern for the sunshine square - perhaps I should but I only blog in my spare time, so I don't have much time to do these things I'm afraid.

    2. Thanks for taking the time to reply. I'm happy to see you've continued your blog on Wordpress.
