By |March 18th, 2015|"done", Classic square, Crocheted blankets, edging, for babies, Patchwork crocheted squares|24 Comments

Good morning sweeties,

The baby boy blanket is done and this was my fastest project ever … two weeks :) yaaaayyy

1

I am very happy with the result…

2

Simple, classic squares surrounded by a round of granny grey … very simple but I love it :)

3

For the edging I chose to make a simple one too … one round of turquoise followed by one round of grey with picots :)

4

The yarn is a 100% acrylic DK one called Mirage and the hook a 3.5mm one.

Do you like it?

5

And did you noticed the new layout of Le monde de Sucrette? I hope you like it too. I’ve been working really hard on this one . Oh how I hate technology … luckily for me my man is a pro in computers stuff :D phewwww

P.S: You can now find all the patterns in the header :) I’m loving right now neater layouts :)

P.S 2: Please if you find something “not normal” in the blog, if you can not write a comment or buy a pattern or anything please do e-mail me sucrette@lemondedesucrette.com and I’ll fix it asap. I really appreciate it :)

Thank you all for visiting and commenting. Your presence makes me really really happy

Sucrette

P.S 3: With this new theme and layout I can make small hearts in my posts and everywhere else and that makes me veryyyyyyyy happy :)

The crochet mood blanket 2014

By |February 9th, 2015|"done", Crochet mood blanket 2014, Crocheted blankets, patchwork, Patchwork crocheted squares|16 Comments

Yes it is finally done :) in February 2015 :)

1

I started this blanket in January 2014 making one square a day and choosing the color of this square depending on my mood … the good and happy days were bright and happy colors… the bad days: greys and dark colors… the “in love” days : reds and purples… the calm, relaxed and peaceful days: cremes, whites and pastel colors :)

2

Back in early september I stopped it … completely… I was not “in the mood” anymore… and I decided to finally finish it in January 2015… so the last squares were not done  depending on my mood… but I really really love the result… It is amazing to see a whole (not so whole) year in a blanket :)

3

This blanket is made of squares… each one is made of 5 rows of 12 dc… joined as I go with a last round around the square of 1sc 3ch 1sc… and I rotated each square before joining it to the others to have this patchwork effect :) You can find the pattern of this blanket HERE.

4

I used leftovers of my trusted Nako Vizon aran acrylic yarn and a 4.5mm hook…

The final blanket is 270 squares (18 x 15)

5

For the edging I chose to make a very very simple one: 1sc 3ch 1sc all around the blanket like the last joining round of each square. I think that a very simple design blanket like this one must have a very simple edging …

6

And I am really pleased with the edging :)

7

The blanket looks lovely in the sitting room and I think that it will stay forever there keeping us snuggly and cosy during the cold days :)

Have to leave you now… the weather is very very bad here today and there is a storm coming our way …

Wishing you a warm and happy week!

Crochet is my therapy

By |August 6th, 2014|Crochet mood blanket 2014, Crocheted blankets, granny squares, Patchwork crocheted squares, V stitch, Vintage V blanket, wips|41 Comments

Good morning beautiful people!

I hope that you are ok, happy and healthy wherever you are.

Today’s post is an update of my current crochet wips. What else to share with you my likeminded friends? ;)

1

Most of the time, specially in the evenings, I crochet so I don’t think much, I crochet so I don’t look at the news, I crochet so I don’t become crazy… That’s why every week I have a lot of crochet to share… It is my medicine, my anti stress, my kind of escape for a better world where everyone live in PEACE with everyone. The world has become an horrible place so much violence, blood and injustice that you have to find your way to not become insane :)

So, my dear friend, here is what I am up to these days… Working on 3 different wips

3

* A granny squares bedspread for our bed…just grannies surrounded with black… I am making now the squares will join them later… I am not even half way done but I love doing grannies, they are my favorite that’s why no hurry …I am taking my time enjoying every stitch :)

*And finally my latest addiction: The Vstitch blanket :) if you’re following me on Instagram or Facebook you already know about how much I am addicted to this project  :D You have to try it! It is … well… ADDICTIVE ;)

Well… my sweeties… These were the 3 wips I am working on at the moment. Crochet is my therapy to face this cruel world and the war that is threatening my beautiful country… I need your prayers my friends… I don’t know if I’ll have internet or no in the coming days due to the situation here :( It is really awful :( Please pray for my country and for its army… Pray for the innocent people… Pray for a better tomorrow…

Thank you so much dear readers… It really means a lot having you here :)

Peace and Love

Sucrette
