A Year of Projects, Crochet A Longs, WIPS

YOP7 week 4

I was going to do the A year of Projects posts every other week so I wasn’t in a rush to get something started or finished to show….. But I have to show off this amazing FO !!!!


Its called Mermaid’s Cowl. I really love this stitch. I used a g size hook instead of the H the pattern called for. The yarn is Caron Simply Soft: Pink Camo. I used all but a little ball of this yarn. Its also not as wide as the pattern. It covers the neck( my mannequin head has a longer neck than I do..lol) .

And for my WIP… Another crochet along by Chaos and Chop Suey. ย This one is for Grease. One of my all time favorite movies. ย Week one is Pink Ladies. I am at the decrease ๐Ÿ™‚ I will finish the other half over the next few days so I do not fall behind ๐Ÿ™‚



Patterns used:

Mermaid’s Cowlย  ( free pattern on Bernat design studio)

Chaos and Chop Suey Grease Blanket CALย ( this is a paid pattern..$8 on ravelry)

my yop7

Crochet A Longs, Crochet stuff, FRIENDS CAL

FRIENDS themed blanket CAL part 1

This CAL is fromย chaos and chop suey here on wordpress. Ive never been so happy to make anything in my life!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I loved the show and I am rewatching it on Netflix while making this blanket. I will be done with show way before I am done with the blanket ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

The pattern on ravelry is $7 . and soooooo worth it Angela put A LOT of work into these blocks and appliques. Harper Baby Shopย ย made themed hooks for this CAL and I HAD to get one! My hook is a 4.25 and the hook Angela used is a 4.50 but I rarely use that size hook so I wanted a hook that I will use alot. ย This hook is so cool.


My first block is The One with the Banner….

I just started the decrease. This is going to be the longest c2c piece Ive done ๐Ÿ™‚ My next one will either be Phoebe’s guitar or the peephole .


I also made some appliques of my own.. ย The E is for Emma, banana is for Marcel, goldfish is for Eddie and the mustache is for Richard. โค
