V stitch stripes (Version2)

By |January 15th, 2015|another V stitch version, Crocheted blankets, for babies, free patterns, Stripes, wips|40 Comments

Good morning sweet people

I missed you and I missed this little blog of mine. Today I want to share with you the chart of the baby blanket I am actually crocheting. I shared the chart on Instagram and Facebook and totally forgot to post it here :) So sorry my faithful blog followers …

1

This baby blanket is for a little princess due in April… so I choose happy girly colors and a new version of the so-popular V stitch in stripes. Happy stripes… Soothing and calming stripes…

2

The pattern is very easy… based on DC TOG mainly… It grows very fast and it is wonderful and easy to crochet it while doing something else like watching TV or singing with your children …

3

I am really enjoying it specially on the evenings…

You have to try it… you’ll be hooked 😉

4

Wishing you a calm and happy end of week

and hope to be back to you very soon

LOVE

V stitch stripes

Hello lovelies,

How are you? Woooow we are July1 already…time flies… 2014 is half gone and I am half done with my Crochet Mood Blanket 2014.

1

Here it is from January1 (up-left light purple) till June30 (down-right blue turquoise) 😀 Wooow! I am really happy to be up to date with it :) It makes me proud, happy and makes my heart sing with joy.

2

See? Not so many dark and grey days! Hope that the second half will be as happy as this first :)

2'

I am pleased with it even though it will be BIG very BIG . The first half is 120 x 145 cm. So the final blanket will be 145 x 240 cm 😀

And I started also something new…

3

 Well, I am unravelling an wip and crocheting a new one… Remember my Vintage Stripy Blanket? Well, I decided to unravel it because I was not pleased with its sides …they were not straight and it was bothering me … A LOT… So, I decided to unravel it and with every row unravelled crochet a row in a new Vintage-V-blanket :)

4

I love the colors. That’s why I am keeping them as they are…unravelling from here…crocheting there :)

6

And I am falling madly deeply in love with this V-stitch blanket :) It is addictive…and once you start you can not leave your hook anymore 😉

5

I drew a small chart to show you how I am working on it. You can find online if you google: Crochet V stitch many patterns, charts and videos too…but here is my own “version” with less “holes” :) and I am really pleased with it.

7

I am working this blanket with a 4.5mm hook and a yarn similar to the Stylecraft special DK but a little thicker. It is called Nako Vizon. A 100% acrylic yarn :)

If you have time and are wondering what to crochet, I really advise you to try the V-stitch. It is totally addictive easy and fast to crochet :) You’ll be totally hooked :)

Have a super day!

I heart you :)

Hello!

Thank you so much for your great response about the new shawl I’m crocheting at the moment!

It is a pure pleasure to make and I feel like it’s gonna be gorgeous!I-heart-you

This is as promised its diagram…

Sorry if I’m posting just a diagram for this as I don’t know how to explain patterns with words and I know that many of you keep asking me about written patterns…I really should learn how to do this stuff 😉 One day…

I-heart-you-diagram

The diagram is made of

– double tr (U.K terms) or tr (U.S terms) ou double brides (French terms)

– dc (U.K) or sc (U.S) ou maille serrees (French)

– chain stitch ou maille en l’air (French)

and you begin it from the bottom of the shawl.

I hope that the diagram is clear for you my friend…

For this shawl, I’m using a super soft yarn called Nako baby. It is a 50%acrylic 50%polyamid yarn and I’m crocheting it with a 3.75mm crochet hook.

I-heart-you-progress

Have to go now…

If you’ll be making this beautiful shawl, please do tell me cause it makes me very very happy to know that you are crocheting along with me :)

Kisses from the bottom of my heart!

P.S: I have some sort of spammy stuff on the blog with links everywhere and open windows that leeds you to nowhere…when this happens please try to click on the “to back” button so you can view the post. I’m trying to fix all these problems with hubby asap and asking for your patience… so sorry about that!

Oh hello lovelies!

It is such a beautiful day today and I’m in love… deeply madly crazy in love with my latest finished project… Are you ready to fall too? I’m sure you are 😉

table-runner-1

Let’s have some close up pics …

I love love love this simple graphic square…I think it is simple but beautiful… and I love it even more because it is the fruit of my imagination… my own drawing… :)

table-runner-5

and I love the whole result…the table runner in all its glory…all these bright and beautiful colors mixed together in a lovely patchwork…

table-runner-6

I feel happy whenever I enter the sitting room :)

table-runner-7

Now for the part you are all waiting for: The how to…

I crocheted this table runner with a thin cotton yarn called “Camilla 6/4″ and a 2mm crochet hook. I made it by joining as I go the squares together in a randomly use of colors…

I drew for you my friend the graphic chart of this square… It is right here:

graphic square

As you noticed, the joining part was made as-I-go with round 5 (in black in the chart) and it is done where I put the arrows…(Instead of the middle chain a slip joining stitch)

Each square was done in a different color and I made a very simple edging (1sc, 4ch, 1sc) all around the whole table runner…

I am in love with it (did I already told you that?? I don’t think so :D) and I think that this graphic square will be beautiful if used to make coasters, cushions or a summer blanket why not?

So, my lovely friend, I’ll have to leave you now with a last pic…

table-runner-8

and wish you a wonderful day!

Sucrette

P.S: I draw all my graphic charts including this one using Corel Draw (a graphic design software) as many of you keep asking me :)

and one last thing: Some of you asks me if I can explain some of the charts with written words and I am so sorry about that but I just can’t do it sometimes… I am unable to do it :( It is too difficult for me as I myself cannot follow an english written pattern :( not yet! but one day… 😉

Kisses to all!
