It’s A Daisy Day

I had been experimenting with acrylic yarns, and in the process found a series of cute crochet patterns. One thing lead to another and I started an afghan. I’m hoping to get it done for my Nieces Birthday! So everyday is a Daisy Day at our house!

What is so nice about Granny Squares? Portability, stash busting, quick to make. Downside? # that I need to make a blanket, *grin*!

I started reading crochet blogs, and found some cute patterns, well a lot of cute patterns. This pattern is from: Mad Blanketer and is called the Bobbly Flower Hexagon (pattern link). I also found a similar one at Attic 24 (who has all kinds of crochet goodness on her blog)

Yarn: Caron Simply Soft Solids, Love this! I now see why people rave about this! I wouldn’t make a sweater out of it, but love it to crochet with. I also made some placemats out of it to begin with, and I did knit those, I have washed them and dried in the dryer many times, and they look as nice as the day I finished them. I was surprised to not have any pilling.

I’ll add some crochet blog links that I have been reading, I might be a convert! Lots of creativity below, Enjoy!

I love granny squares! The daisies are cute. I like the dark blue contrast. I'm working on a continuous (the lazy way) granny square baby blanket.

Lovely! That is my favorite way to make a blanket . . . in pieces! :)
