C2C Panda Monkey Baby Blanket

You might have already known about my new found love for Corner-to-Corner Crochet from my previous blogs. Making any C2C blanket is easy and interesting especially when you have a grid-based graph or a pixel graph with you. There are over a thousand graphs available online in different variety from living to non-living. However, animals and cartoon characters are the most popular pixel arts available online. They are top choices when you are looking for patterns for children.

When I learned C2C, I quickly jumped at the opportunity of making a baby blanket. I liked the Dog graph from 1dogwoof and altered the colours to make Woof! Woof! Baby Blanket.

But I was craving for learning the art myself. The challenge arrived when a friend approached me for a similar theme as Woof! Woof! Baby Blanket, after checking out the homepage. Apparently, the couple needed it in 2-3 weeks, so I decided to make a monkey-panda themed blanket. 

Completely new at pixel drawing, I browsed few monkeys and pandas online to understand the intricacies of the pattern with respect to the facial features and body positioning. I must admit that the process is tedious and takes a lot of practice and hit and trails. You have to start with one figure at a time like I did with the monkey and then made one change at a time to understand the overall look of the pattern. 

I finally succeeded and I can proudly say this was my first attempt at pixel art! I hope you like what I have tried to bring out in these and try out for yourself.

 

Process:

Collect the colours that you plan to use for the blanket. Start C2C crocheting and then C2C decreasing crocheting to complete one graph. Repeat the similar process for all the graphs twice. Both the graphs are 25×25. Make 1 graph and measure its size. It will help you analyse the final size of the blanket. Proceed towards making other 3 parts. For this blanket, each part is 17″ and a final border of 1-2″ makes the blanket 36×36 or 37×37. 

Note: Make 1 graph and check out the measurement of that part. It will help you analyse the final size of the blanket. Proceed towards making other 3 parts. For this blanket, each part is 17″ and a final border of 1-2″ makes the blanket 36×36 or 37×37. 

For this blanket, each part is 17″ and a final border of 1″ makes the blanket 37×37. 

This pattern requires proper counting and marking after completion of each square to avoid any mistakes.

Remember:

  1. Print the coloured graph ( or black and white graph and mark the colours) and number all the rows and columns. Here, it is 25×25. The C2C stitch grows diagonally.
  2. Starting with C2C Crochet Stitch Increasing ( focusing on the colour change) increase diagonally for 25 rows. 
  3. Start decreasing C2C Crochet Stitch (focusing on the colour change as per the graph) decrease till the count reaches 1.

Edging:-

After completing the 4 parts, join them using the Invisible Stitch. Work on the edging on the blanket. 

R1: Ch 1, Single Crochet (SC) around each post. 3 SC at the corners. 

R2: Ch 2, Double Crochet on each SC. 3 DC at the corners or at the corner 3SC – 3DC on the middle 3 SC group.

R3: Ch 2, Half-Herringbone Double Crochet (HHDC) around each DC. 3 HHDC at the corner DC or 3 HHDC on the middle of the 3 DC group.

¹C2C crochet stitch:

  • [Chain 6.
  • R1: Double Crochet (DC) in 4th chain from the hook. 2 DC in next 2 chains. [ 1st corner block is made]
  • R2: turn the work, chain 6. DC in 4th chain from the hook. 2 DC in next 2 chains.  Slip stitch on the chain 3. (Chain 3, 3 DC) in the same chain 3 space of the previous row. [2nd row contains 2 blocks]
  • R3: Repeat R2 ]

²Decreasing C2C crochet stitch

  • [turn the last row. slip stitch on 1st DC, 2nd DC, 3 DC.
  • Slip Stitch(SL ST) chain 3 space. (Chain 3, 3 DC) in same chain 3 space.
  • Continue (SL ST, chain 3, 3 DC) in next chain 3 space.
  • Repeat till the last 2nd block. SL ST in the last chain 3 space. ]

Caution Section:-

Final pointers to keep in mind when working on this project.

  1. Print colourful graph. If you have the black and white printer then print the graph and colour the blocks using colour pencils or mark G for green, Y for Yellow, Br for Brown, Sk for light brown or skin etc. so that you do not miss out the shape.
  2. Mark each row and column so that you know at which row you are while working.
  3. Also, count the number of blocks use 1 colour in that working row. Remember we work diagonally in C2C.
  4. Make one graph and measure the part. Based upon this measurement you can calculate the total size of your blanket. You can increase the size of the blanket by
    1. adding few rows of SC and DC around each part.
    2. adding an edge and increasing the edge using DC around.
  5. For e.g. here each part is 17″. In order to get 40″X40″ blanket, I have to add another 5″. I can add a row of SC and another row of DC in each part. Then after sewing them, I can add another one row of SC and DC and HHDC. You can mix and match the options to get your desired size.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Length: 37″
  • Width: 37″

Optional Alterations:-

  • The sizes can be changed based on your requirement.
  • The edging can be made of Single Crochet (SC), Crab Stitch, Slip Stitch, Herringbone Half Double Crochet (HHDC).
  • Instead of regular yarn, fur yarn will bring out a pop to the border.
  • Instead of going for 3rd colour for the border, use both the base colours around for alternate rows.
    • The border shouldn’t be too broad to pop out. The purpose should be to provide a clean edge.
  • You can add pom-pom or tassels (matching the colour with the edging or the base colour) at the 4 corners. Link to make pom-pom and tassels.
  • Avoid the border and just add tassels/pompoms made of a mixture of the base colours.
  • You can attach flowers, beads, appliques or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather, fabric etc to make it more interesting.
  • You can increase the total size of the blanket.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegant simplicity!!

Crochet C2C Geometricised Colour Baby Blanket / Graphghan - Knot My Designs

Geometricised Colour Baby Blanket

Have you ever wondered why babies or newborn toys are colourful and of various shapes? 

Because as a child grows, he/she learns to observe and categorize the objects around in form of shapes and colours. This helps to develop the brain and build that motor skills. The kid learns to differentiate size, shapes and patterns around. Colours help to identify objects like yellow fruit in the shape of half circle is a banana. 

I have always dreamt of making a geometric-shaped colourful blanket for children to serve as a multi-purpose item. It can not only be used as a swaddling cover or stroller blanket or normal baby blanket but also can be laid on carpet or bed and they can play with the colours and shapes. 

I was successful to implement when a friend asked me for a custom baby blanket to gift.

After getting a hold on Corner to Corner (C2C) Crochet stitch, I tried a few pixel grid graphs on my own. I liked the work of other fellow crocheters but I wanted to make a pattern all by myself from the scratch. The basic way to learn is to simply form geometric shapes to get the idea of blocks and shapes. 

This struck me with the idea of making the geometric-shaped squares for the baby blanket. I tried all basic geometric shapes and polygons. I changed the colours of the squares based on the availability of yarns and voila! here is the charming baby blanket. 

Process:

We can find a square, circle, rectangles, triangle, right angle triangle, ovals, trapezoid, pentagon, hexagon, octagon, parallelogram, diamond, septagon, rhombus of different colours in this Geometricised Colour Baby Blanket.

Collect the colours that you plan to use for the blanket. Start C2C crocheting and then C2C crocheting in descending pattern to complete one graph. Repeat the similar process for all the graphs as these are the 15×15 grid. Make 1 graph and measure its size. It will help you analyse the final size of the blanket. Proceed towards making other 15 pieces. For this blanket, each piece is 10″ and no border makes the blanket 40″ X 40″.

Note: Make 1 graph and check out the measurement of that part. It will help you analyse the final size of the blanket. Proceed towards making other 15 pieces. You can add a row of SC if you want to have the uniformity all around. 

This pattern requires proper counting and marking after completion of each square to avoid any mistakes.

  1. Print the coloured graph ( or black n white graph and mark the colours) and mark the total rows and columns. It is 15X15. The C2C corner stitch grows diagonally.
  2. Starting with ¹C2C Crochet Stitch (focusing on the colour change) increase diagonally till the count 15.
  3. Start ²decreasing C2C Crochet Stitch (focusing on the colour change as per the graph) decrease till the count reaches 1.

Edging:-

After completing the 16 square pieces, join them using the Invisible Stitch. Work on the edging on the blanket. 

I haven’t provided any edging as the size is already 40″ X 40″ and the invisible stitch flows pretty well.

Crochet Persimmon C2C Diamond Throw - Knot My Designs

Persimmon C2C Diamond Throw

Some are addicted to chocolates, others few are to shopping; I got addicted to C2C crochet stitch. Corner-to-corner crochet stitch is a common passion for crocheters. It is a treasure chest for any crocheter that has an infinite number of patterns, animated objects, animals, flowers and more to offer. All you need is a pixel art of what you want to make. You can easily find grid graphs online made available by many generous crocheters for us to work on and create beautiful art with yarn.

I tried hard not to get addicted to C2C crochet stitch after working on Woof! Woof! Baby Blanket and C2C Checkered Lap Blanket. So, I decided to make a chevron patterned lap blanket as something to take me away from C2C. I was halfway into crocheting the blanket when I realized that the difference in the thickness of the yarns (I bought) was adding additional weight to it. Also, I was running out of time.

I decided to drop the idea and I started looking for new crochet stitches, which will make a gorgeous blanket using rust, pale orange and cream combinations of yarn. I stumbled upon this Pinterest picture. Guess what! It was corner-to-corner crochet diamond shape blanket. 

Call it luck or love, I was back to C2C.

Process:

The Ravelry link from C2C Diamonds Blanket for Baby Hemmesch described the pattern as 

C2C¹ Squares Pattern: 
4 rows grey 
2 rows gold 
2 rows mint 
2 rows grey 
3 rows mint (start decrease on 3rd row of mint here) 
2 rows grey 
2 rows mint 
2 rows gold 
4 rows grey

I changed the grey to cream, gold to pale orange and mint to rust.

One way to get the overall diamond-shaped design is to start with small parts and then add them together. Starting with making 12 rows diagonal line patterns, measuring up to 8″, join four of these parts together to form a diamond shape. However, after working on the above pattern separately, I realized that quite a lot of yarn was getting wasted while changing colours. Also, the higher number of knots, the higher chances of the yarn getting entangled between. 

In my previous C2C Checkered Lap Blanket, I had used 15 squares of Taupe (measuring 10″) n 15 squares of Green (measuring 10″) to make 60×40 size blanket. So in order to achieve the same size in this particular blanket, I would have to work on 30 bits of the diagonal pattern. This would also require securing the knots of every piece, sewing the stranded yarns of every piece, and stitching these parts into a blanket. It seems to be a pointless investment of time and energy.

Therefore, I decided to create a bigger C2C¹ Diamond graph and join them to make a blanket. I completed the 4 pieces of the diagonal pattern and joined them. Using this section as one diamond pattern, I created the diamond a graph. Now the graph has 24 rows measuring up to 16″. The graph is a continuation of the small pieces. I was glad about the outcome since the final pattern remained unchanged and helped me save the time and energy.

I was able to complete the project in a month easily, with there is less wastage of yarn and less hassle of securing the knots. 

P.S. I avoid too many joints in my work assuming if the blanket is used roughly, the stitch will still guarantee a long run. Provided that the wash care instructions are followed for maintaining the originality of the product. You can still opt for 8″ diagonal squares.

Pattern:-

The number of rows to work is 24. The total size of this square is 16″. To achieve the 64X40 size blanket.

C2C Diamond Graph = 8

C2C Extended Diagonal Graph = 4

I have joined these squares using Invisible Join Stitch.

Note: The size might increase or decrease depending on the yarn and crochet hook used.

¹C2C crochet stitch:

  • [Chain 6.
  • R1: Double Crochet (DC) in 4th chain from the hook. 2 DC in next 2 chains. [ 1st corner block is made]
  • R2: turn the work, chain 6. DC in 4th chain from the hook. 2 DC in next 2 chains.  Slip stitch on the chain 3. (Chain 3, 3 DC) in the same chain 3 space of the previous row. [2nd row contains 2 blocks]
  • R3: Repeat R2 ]

²Decreasing C2C crochet stitch

  • [turn the last row. slip stitch on 1st DC, 2nd DC, 3 DC.
  • Slip Stitch(SL ST) chain 3 space. (Chain 3, 3 DC) in same chain 3 space.
  • Continue (SL ST, chain 3, 3 DC) in next chain 3 space.
  • Repeat till the last 2nd block. SL ST in the last chain 3 space. ]

Caution Section:-

  1. The size of one diamond square segment might increase or decrease depending on the yarn and crochet hook used.
  2. The wool gauge of rust and cream are same but pale range is different. Thus, I have increased the 6:3 ratio of basic C2C crochet stitch to 7:4 Also, I included 4 Double Crochet instead of 3 in C2C crochet stitch. 
  3. The same crochet hook is maintained throughout the process.
  4. I avoid too many joints in my work assuming if the blanket is roughly used, still the stitch will guarantee a long run. Provided that the wash care instructions are followed for maintaining the originality of the product. You can still opt for 8″ diagonal squares.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Length: 64″
  • Width: 40″

Optional Alterations:-

  • The sizes can be changed based on your requirement.
  • The edging can be made of Single Crochet (SC), Crab Stitch, Slip Stitch, Herringbone Half Double Crochet (HHDC).
  • Instead of regular yarn, fur yarn will bring out a pop to the border.
  • Instead of going for 3rd colour for the border, use both the base colours around for alternate rows.
    • The border shouldn’t be too broad to pop out. The purpose should be to provide a clean edge.
  • You can add pom-pom or tassels (matching the colour with the edging or the base colour) at the 4 corners. Link to make pom-pom and tassels.

Crochet Creamy Cute Toddler Sweater Free Pattern - Knot My Designs

Creamy Cute Toddler Sweater

It was an exhilarating experience! My first trial in the making of the sweater, a maiden attempt towards stitching. I felt all the emotions of thrill, fear, anxiety, to the happiness of triumph and pride of achievement.

A naive in stitching and cutting, I do not know the fundamentals of it. I can run a sewing machine for mending stitches, that’s all. This was an interesting experience. The final sweater was much closer to my expectation, but, it turned out to be slightly bigger in size for younger nephew, especially at the sleeves. However, I have nothing to worry, kids grow very quickly. So most likely within a year’s time, it will fit him. Having said that, it was indeed a learning for me. I picked up some understanding about fitting and stitching.

And I must admit, it is pretty impressive for the first attempt. What say?

Process:

I loved the Yarnspirations blog. It contains a lot of patterns with detailed instructions available for free. I was looking for a sweater for a 2-year-old toddler. Since this is my 1st attempt in crocheting a sweater (any size), I loved the instructions and the pictorial measurement. I simply fell in love with this hoodie sweater pattern. It is so darn cute that I wish I had one for myself. The yarn is completely different than the yarn listed on the pattern page. Thus, I focused entirely on the size chart rather than the written pattern. My nephew is 1-year-old but I chose to make it bigger by 1 size so that it fits well. It’s better to make a bigger size than work on exact size, which will be unfit in a couple of months. I made the modifications accordingly. It was quite a challenging task since I had very limited knowledge of making a sweater. The yarn thickness was different than the recommended yarn in the pattern. Thus, I used a different crochet hook. I have listed the modifications I did in case you are in my position.

  1. Initial chain count for the back is 56 to get 11.5″. I raised the length by .5″ more, so instead of 13.5″ it is 14″.
  2. Sleeves are 9″.
  3. The front is also increased by 0.5″ while the length is similar to the back with 14″. The initial chain count is around 44.
  4. The Shoulder width turned out more as 4″. I could reduce it to 3 and left more opening for the neck.
  5. I followed the hood instructions with 4 rows to create the open collar and then sewed all the parts.

 Caution Section:-

  1. Measurement is very important for making any outfit. This one turned out to be for the older nephew than the younger one.
  2. The yarn and crochet size selection can alter based on your availability and preference. Thus check out the complete sizing pictures from the link.
  3. It’s better to make a bigger size than work on exact size which will be unfit in a couple of months.
  4. Initial chain count and 3-4 rows of the pattern will give you the sizing clarity. This might require unwinding a couple of times till you get the desired size.
  5. After creating the Back, make sure you are always measuring the front 2 halves again n again. Especially, when you make the holes for buttons. I miscalculated, thus there is 1″ of an increased size in the front. I have tried to handle the situation while sewing up. Had I measured front along with the back, I would have saved this extra wool and also have gotten the perfect fit.
  6. Sleeves turn out a bit bigger than the body base. Thus after completing the back and the front then only proceed with sleeves.
  7. Since I felt hoodie will enclose the opening of the neck, I didn’t proceed. It is my first attempt at stitching and making of the sweater. I have made a lot of mistakes in the process.
  8. It is best if you use the same yarn ball to avoid imperfection in design.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Body Length: 14″
  • Body Width: 12″
  • Sleeve length: 9″

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can also add pockets.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegant simplicity!!

Crochet Olive Shell Rectangular Shawl for an adult woman - Knot My Designs

Olive Shell Rectangular Shawl

Shawl or Wrap plays an important role in woman’s wardrobe as an all-rounder accessory. There are various different styles to carry a shawl; as a prayer shawl, a party shoulder robe for dresses, a winter cowl or scarf, or as a stole to go along with Indian kurta.

This multi-purpose accessory is a wonder and a gift to every woman. I wanted to make a shawl that not only brings warmth but also adds contrast to a gorgeous sequin dress. I chose to make a shawl using Olive colour yarn. Traditionally, this colour olive green represents the peace and brings comfort to eyes.

Easy to wear and carry around, the thickness of the wool promises ample warmth. You can either wear as a day-lunch or an evening outhouse party. 

Process:

I like the corner to corner (C2C) style Shell pattern by Hillary on her blog. I did some calculations and modifications to make a rectangular shawl. The process contains series of double crochet stitch (DC), Single Crochet (SC) and Chain (ch).

R1: chain 68+3. Multiples of 4+3.

The chain was 19″ long.

R2: Starting with 3 DC in the 4th hook on the chain, *skip 3 ch, SC in next ch, ch 3, 3 DC in same Ch*; repeat from *-* till the end of the chain with SC in the last Ch; Ch 3, turn.

R3: 3 DC in 1st SC, *SC, Ch 3, 3 DC in the Ch 3 space of the previous row*; repeat from *-* till the end of the chain with SC in the last Ch; Ch 3, turn.

Repeat R3 until the desired shawl length.

Last Row (LR): 2 DC in 1st SC, * SC in next Ch 3 space, Ch 3*; repeat from *-* till the end of the chain with SC in the last Ch. Slip Stitch and sew.

Remember: to give any lacey effect the crochet hook should be more than 2-3mm bigger than the recommended hook. 

Since the yarn was bulky and stretchy, I used 5.5mm, a smaller hook, than recommended.

Caution Section:-

  • Depending on the texture of the yarn, you can either choose a larger crochet hook other than recommended one.
  • For edging the last row, you can change the crochet hook to a smaller size to give a tighter set.
  • Check the initial 3-4 rows to get the desired width. The number of chains and the stitching style will change the width.
  • Every person works loose or medium or tight stitch. Thus, the width and length of the scarf changes. I focused on medium stitch to give the smooth flow.
  • I used a small crochet hook than recommended as the wool has elasticity.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Length: 65″
  • Width: 18″.

Optional Alterations:-

  • Add a line of tassels to the ends of both sides along the width. 4 Tassels at the corners will also work. You can reduce the size of the scarf as tassels will add another 10″.
  • Attach pom-poms to each of the corners.
  • The tassels or pompoms colour should be of the base colour or any contrast colour. Shades of white, golden, silver, brown, creme, blue, olive will add the beauty.
  • Pom-poms and tassels can be of wool, faux fur, ribbons, plastic, resin etc. Link to make pom-pom and tassels.
  • The long length edging, you can have a Crab Stitch, Single Crochet, Slip Stitch.
  • Decrease the width and convert this wrap/stole/shawl into a beautiful lacy scarf.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This takes away the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegant simplicity!!

Crochet White Petals Flower Bookmark - kNot mY deSigns

White Petals Flower Bookmark

Anything new always attracts us. This attraction is applicable to the kids too. Latest gadgets, new advanced toy, access to free internet draws everyone towards them. It is impossible to find any person who will deny accessing latest items.

The use of E-books, audiobooks, podcasts, videos provides lots of information. Since the accessibility, availability, portability compels us to use more, we tend to strain ourselves more than we ever realise. Whereas, if you read a physical book, you will not strain your eyes and will feel better.

Creating colourful, creative and interesting bookmarks is an attempt to push the kids to read a paper-based book instead of using tablets or smartphones. They can flash their lovely bookmarks and it will attract another kid to have one and use for their regular courses.

These bookmarks are easy to make using leftover yarns so you can gift to everyone. A creative handmade gift from you when you gift a book to someone.

Process:

I liked the Hydrangea flower pattern from Maggie Crochet and thought to make one for gifting a book along with a flower bookmark to my colleague’s daughter. The pattern confused me at certain steps so I am trying to elaborate in my style. The process looks difficult but once the written instructions are clarified it becomes simple. The instructions include Single Crochet (SC), Double Crochet (DC) and Treble Crochet (TC) stitches along with Chain (Ch) and Slip Stitch (SL ST).

The pattern can be divided into 2 parts:

  1. The Hydrangea flower
  2. The stem and the tag

Hydrangea Flower:-

The flower is formed in 2 ways. First, the base is created and then the petals are formed.

Flower Base:-

R1: Starting with a Magic Circle, Ch 1 and 6 Single Crochet (SC); join with a Sl ST to the 1st SC. Total 6 SC.

R2: Ch 3, 2 DC in the same stitch, *Ch 3, 2 DC in next SC*; repeat *-* and join at the beginning Ch 3 with the SL ST. Total 12 DC, 6 Ch-3 Space.

R3: Ch 1, SC in the same stitch and next DC, 4 SC in ch-3 space, *SC in next 2 DC, 4 SC in Ch-3 space*; repeat *-* and join at the beginning SC with the SL ST. Total 36 SC.

R4: Ch 3, DC in next SC, Ch 3, skip next SC, DC in the next 2 SC, ch 3, * 1 DC in the next 2 SC, Ch 3, skip next SC, DC in the next 2 SC, Ch 3, skip next SC*; repeat *-* throughout and join at the beginning Ch 3 with a Sl ST. Total 24 DC, 12 Ch-3 Space.

R5: Repeat R3 around. Total 72 SC. Cut the yarn and sew the strangling yarn.

To increase the base, repeat R4 and R5. R6 will contain 36 DC, 18 Ch-3 space. R7 should be 108 SC.

Petals:-

Inner Petal Layer:

Attach the yarn around the base of the 1st DC of R2 from flower base with the SL ST.

R1: Attach the yarn around the base of the 1st DC of R2 from flower base with the SL ST. The 2nd round of base contains 12 DC. We will be working on these 12 DC posts to form the petals. 2 DC will be used to form one petal. We have to work on these DC posts.

R2: Lift the DC post and work on creating 1st petal on that DC post – Ch 3, 4 TR, Ch 2, Turn your work and make 2nd DC as the working DC post – 4 TR, Ch 3. SL ST at the base of the 2nd DC. One Petal is formed.

*Turn your work, choose next 2 DC, (SL ST, Ch 3, 4 TR) on 1st DC, Ch 2, turn and lift the next DC, ( 4TR, Ch 3, SL ST) on the 2nd DC*. Repeat this *-* for other 4 sets. Total 6 Inner Petals. Cut the yarn and sew the stranding yarn.

Outer Petals Layer:

R3: The 4th round of the flower base contains 24 DC. We will be working on these 24 DC posts to form the outer petal layer. 2 DC will be used to form one petal. Repeat R2 on these 24 DC posts to make 12 Petals. Cut and sew the stranding yarn. Total 12 Petals.

If you have increased the base then repeat R2 on 36 DC. You should get 18 Petals.

If the lifting of the post and working around DC sounds confusing then check out the video.

Stem and Tag:-

Locate the centre at the back of the flower and SL ST on the base of the DC. Chain 50+ to get 5″+ stem. I have chained 50 times and attached the Knot My Designs Tag at the end.

Caution Section:-

  1. The selection of the yarn defines the size of the flower. I have used 4-ply yarn and 4.5 mm crochet hook and the flower diameter is 5″. To increase the diameter you can either choose a bulkier yarn and bigger crochet hook.
  2. The petals of the flower contain 2 layers – inner layer and outer layer. To increase the flower size, you can also increase the base and add another layer of petals.
  3. Make sure you check each petal after completion to avoid frogging at the later stage.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • String length: 5″
  • White Petals Flower: 5″

The sizes can be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads, tassel at the end of the bookmark
  • You can remove the string and attach a paper clip for bookmark or Hair Clip for making a hair accessory.
    Or paste it on your wrapped item to make an interesting wrapping gift style.
  • You can add your tag.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegant simplicity!!

Crochet C2C Checkered Lap Blanket - Knot My Designs

C2C Checkered Lap Blanket

As creators and art-loving individuals, our objective is to create a magnificent product, which is loved and cherished throughout its lifetime. But bringing out quality within a given period of time can put us into pressure. To solve this problem, seasoned crocheters have invented Corner-to-corner stitch pattern.

The pattern is very simple and involves Double crochet, slip stitch and chains, but its rich and intricate look that it gives out makes an impact and mesmerizes us. We can create any pixelated art into blankets or pillows or drapes using this stitching style. If you search for C2C or Corner-to-corner crochet stitch, you will be amazed to see the extent of interesting and unique creations. After learning the stitch, I fell in love with it.

The challenge for me was finishing the blankets within 30 day time period and I could dedicate only 5 hours on a particular day for this. The problem compelled me to look for patterns that will meet my requirements and benchmark. Moreover, I was inclined to use C2C for blankets as home decor. The graphghans (graph afghans), or pixel art blankets are specifically targeted for kids rooms. After mulling for over a week, I decided to make a Chessboard graph. 

However, I was unaware of the quantity of wool required to complete the project. Since, I had 12 balls of taupe and green colour yarn balls, (each 50gms) bought for an adult throw, my concern was completing the chessboard graph even before I run out of yarn. As a solution, I decided to make a square swatch first using 1 ball of each taupe and green colour. Depending on the amount, I continued making squares of each ball. After completing 10 balls, I estimated the pattern and number of squares required.

Process:

The pattern is corner-to-corner(C2C) crochet. There is the total of 30 square blocks of 2 colours. Square blocks of 9″ each is made using taupe and green colour wool. Each square block is worked diagonally.

Corner-to-corner crochet is always worked diagonally. For any square block, the stitch is increased diagonally and then decreased to form a square. For more information, check out the video.

Each block of green and taupe colour is sewed using Invisible Stitch alternatively. 

Note: I stitched horizontally and then vertically (at one go) to avoid any knots and joints. I laid the square pieces and measured the yarn required to sew. With additional 4-5″ to the measured length, I started sewing the squares. 

Pattern:-

The pattern can be divided into 2 sections.

  1. Taupe Square
  2. Green Square

Taupe Square:-

C2C¹ crochet one square block of taupe for 15 times. Then start decreasing C2C crochet to end the square.

Make 15 such square blocks.

Green Square:-

C2C¹ crochet one square block of green for 18 times. Then start decreasing C2C crochet to end the square.

Make 15 such square blocks.

¹C2C crochet stitch:

  • [Chain 6.
  • R1: Double Crochet (DC) in 4th chain from the hook. 2 DC in next 2 chains. [ 1st corner block is made]
  • R2: turn the work, chain 6. DC in 4th chain from the hook. 2 DC in next 2 chains.  Slip stitch on the chain 3. (Chain 3, 3 DC) in the same chain 3 space of the previous row. [2nd row contains 2 blocks]
  • R3: Repeat R2 ]

²Decreasing C2C crochet stitch

  • [turn the last row. slip stitch on 1st DC, 2nd DC, 3 DC.
  • Slip Stitch(SL ST) chain 3 space. (Chain 3, 3 DC) in same chain 3 space.
  • Continue (SL ST, chain 3, 3 DC) in next chain 3 space.
  • Repeat till the last 2nd block. SL ST in the last chain 3 space. ]

Caution Section:-

  1. The selection of the yarns is important. The thickness and elasticity of the yarn and the chosen crochet hook determines the design.
  2. Also, your technique impacts the smoothness or finished look. Everyone has different technique ranging from tight stitching style to medium to loose stitching styles.
  3. In case, you are unable to get the required chosen coloured yarn of same thickness, you can change the crochet hook and your technique as you go around, to get the seamless look. For me, I chose 2 different crochet hook and used the same technique.
  4. The wool gauge of taupe and green are different. To get the square of 9″ each the no. of stitches are decreased or increased.
  5. The Crochet hook is also changed based on the wool. For taupe, 5.5mm hook is used. For green, 5mm hook is used.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Length: 54″
  • Width: 45″

Optional Alterations:-

  • The sizes can be changed based on your requirement.
  • The edging can be made of Single Crochet (SC), Crab Stitch, Slip Stitch, Herringbone Half Double Crochet (HHDC).
  • Instead of regular yarn, fur yarn will bring out a pop to the border.
  • Instead of going for 3rd colour for the border, use both the base colours around for alternate rows.
    • The border shouldn’t be too broad to pop out. The purpose should be to provide a clean edge.
  • You can add pom-pom or tassels (matching the colour with the edging or the base colour) at the 4 corners. Link to make pom-pom and tassels.
  • Avoid the border and just add tassels/pompoms made of a mixture of the base colours.
  • You can attach flowers, beads, appliques or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather, fabric etc to make it more interesting.

Remember: do not overdo it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegant simplicity!!

Crochet Popcorn Stitch Flower Bookmark - kNot mY deSigns

Popcorn Stitch Flower Bookmark

Like any other kid, my childhood was spent behind Hardy Boys, the Famous Five, the Secret Seven and the Agatha Criste series. I was a voracious reader and would spend most of the time reading them. These books had adventure, mystery, a lesson to be taught and a message meant to be shared.

Thankfully, the kids of the 90s had either books or outdoor games, and none of the computer games and mobile phones games that we see everywhere today. Though there are still many children’s book series such as the Harry Potter, Eragon and the adventures of Narnia, there are lesser takers of these books.

And this is not only for the children. Reading should never stop with age. However, as we grow, we get so busy in our daily chores that we get even lesser time to pick that book from the shelf and flip through the pages. All the incredible collection of the books end up gathering the dust on the bookshelves.

In order to break this habit and get into reading again, I made my first bookmark years ago, and I have been making more of these since. This time not only for me but for my friends and family members. A lovely bookmark is yet another incentive to open the book and read. It certainly worked for me.

Here, I searched for a flower pattern especially, to gift to my colleague’s daughter. A creative bookmark for her; a gift and a habit that she can confidently flaunt.

Process:

I was looking for flower pattern to make a bookmark. I liked the Popcorn pattern from B.Hooked. The pattern uses Popcorn stitch to create the flower.

The pattern contains 2 steps:

  1. to create the popcorn stitch flower
  2. to form the string and tassel.

Popcorn Stitch Flower:-

R1: Starting with the Magic Circle, Chain 1 (CH), 8 Single Crochet (SC); Join with Slip Stitch (SL ST) on 1st SC.

R2: Ch 2, *create a Popcorn¹ in SC, Ch 1*; repeat *-*, join with SL ST on Ch 2.

R3: Ch 2, *create 2 Popcorns¹ in ch 1 space, Ch 1*; repeat *-*, join with SL ST on Ch 2.

¹Popcorn Stitch: [5 DC in the same stitch. Drop the loop from the hook but do not pull.Inserting the hook from front to back, pick top loops of 1st DC and the dropped loop, slip stitch to form the popcorn. ]

If you are unable to get the written pattern, click here for the video.

Tassel and String:-

Choose the yarn that you want to form the string and tassel. I picked up green left over yarn to form the stem and the tassel. I used this link to make the tassel and crocheted chain 50+ to form the stem. Sew them together to form the Flower Bookmark.

While forming the stem, I added my tag in between in the chains.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • String length: 9″
  • Flower Diameter: 3″

The sizes can be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads, tassel at the end of the bookmark
  • You can add your tag.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Crochet Yellowstone Wraparound Shawl for an adult woman - Knot My Designs

Yellowstone Wraparound Shawl

Have you ever been in a situation in which you have a certain dish in your mind and you enter the restaurant to curb the craving for that dish, but the moment you glance at the menu, you change your mind?

Like a kid in a candy store, confused and excited at the same time, you change your mind and end up buying something else. Somewhere you still crave for the first choice but the chance is gone. The purchase is made and you cannot get it anymore now.

“I was in the same shoes. I am like a crocheter in a pattern store”. With hundreds of intricate and colourful patterns floating around me and attracting me, drilling down to one pattern is a huge task. There is a vision, a look, and my journey to find that particular design continues till I get it.

When I started the Yellowstone Wraparound Shawl, I do not even remember the number of patterns I had already tried; shells, picots, closed stitches, trebles, star stitch, arcade stitch etc. Frogging 5-10 rows and again looking for a different design. I still kept trying for that particular pattern that kept reappearing in my dreams.

Crochet Yellowstone Wraparound Shawl for an adult woman - Knot My Designs

Attempt 1 – failed

Crochet Yellowstone Wraparound Shawl for an adult woman - Knot My Designs

Attempt 2 – failed

The pattern was V-Stitch. After every unsuccessful attempt, I concluded that v-stitch was the best suitable design. Although, I still get tempted to try out another pattern. I, finally, redirected myself to follow the initial gut feeling.

Process:

The process contains series of double crochet stitch (DC) and Chain 1 (ch).

R1: chain 90. Multiples of 3+4.

The chain was 21″ long.

R2: Starting from the 4th hook on the chain, DC, ch 1, DC, *skip 1 ch, DC, ch 1, DC*; repeat from *-* till the end of the chain with 2 chain stitches. skip next ch and DC.

R3: Ch 2, *(DC, Ch 1, DC ) in next ch 1 space; repeat * in all the ch-1 space, ending with DC in the last row DC.

Repeat R3 until the desired shawl length.

Remember: to give any lacey effect the crochet hook should be more than 2-3mm bigger than the recommended hook. 

Since the yarn was bulky and stretchy, I used 5.5mm, a smaller hook, than recommended.

Caution Section:-

  • Depending on the texture of the yarn, you can either choose a larger crochet hook other than recommended one.
  • For edging the last row, you can change the crochet hook to a smaller size to give a tighter set.
  • Check the initial 3-4 rows to get the desired width. The number of chains and the stitching style will change the width.
  • Every person works loose or medium or tight stitch. Thus, the width and length of the scarf changes. I focused on medium stitch to give the smooth flow.
  • I used a small crochet hook than recommended as the wool has elasticity.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Length: 70″
  • Width: 18″.

Optional Alterations:-

  • Add a line of tassels to the ends of both sides along the width. 4 Tassels at the corners will also work. You can reduce the size of the scarf as tassels will add another 10″.
  • Attach pom-poms to each of the corners.
  • The tassels or pompoms colour should be of the base colour or any contrast colour. Shades of white, golden, silver, brown, creme, blue, olive will add the beauty.
  • Pom-poms and tassels can be of wool, faux fur, ribbons, plastic, resin etc. Link to make pom-pom and tassels.
  • The long length edging, you can have a Crab Stitch, Single Crochet, Slip Stitch.
  • Decrease the width and convert this wrap/stole/shawl into a beautiful lacy scarf.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This takes away the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegant simplicity!!

Crochet Flower Power Bookmark - kNot mY deSigns

Flower Power Bookmark

I believe in “Padho Aur Padhao” mantra. This means to read and teach. Learn and spread your learning.

The changing technology has enabled us to become mobile, by bringing everything into a digital form, including the book. Kindle, E-Book sites, Hub list, your local library online account etc. gives us ample options to read anywhere and anytime digitally.

However, I am still an old school gal. I like the feel of the book, Illustrative book cover and using bookmarks to save my page. It gives me a great escape from electronic devices too. Working in front of the computer for long hours, checking mobiles for chats and calls, using tab for handling all social media networking already involves too much of screen glare. Reading a book, a physical paper book gives me pleasure, keeps my eyes away from the display screen and creates a quiet meditation zone for me.

Previously, I used to buy books and bookmarks with creative quotes but now since I know to crochet, I love creating interesting bookmarks that push me to buy more books and read more!

And now, I want everyone to try out this old school book reading method by making creative, funny or attractive bookmarks. Pick a book and flaunt it with your creative bookmark. Here, I tried crocheting few flowers and turned them into girly Flower Power bookmarks!

Easy to make, easy to carry, easy to your eyes and mind!

Process:

I was looking for flower pattern to make a bookmark. I liked this Flower pattern from Rescued Paw Designs. The pattern uses Single Crochet stitch to create the flower and Bobble stitch to form the centre.

The pattern contains 2 steps:

  1. to create the flower petals.
  2. to form the string and centre bud.

Flower Petals:-

R1: Starting with a Magic Circle, Ch 1 and 12 Single Crochet (SC); Slip Stitch (SL ST) with 1st SC. Total 12 SC.

R2: Chain 8, SC from the 2nd chain from the hook, 7 SC in next 7 Chains; SL ST Back Loop on the next SC.

R3-R12: Repeat R2.

Working on the Front Loop of the R1 SC Round, Chain 6, SC from the 2nd chain from the hook, 5 SC in next 5 Chains; SL ST Front Loop on the next SC.

Bud and String:-

Create a Bobble stitch and join to the 1st chain to form a bud. Chain 50+ to form the stem of 7″+. In the end, I have added the Knot My Designs Tag. Since the yarn was thick so I left 9″ yarn to form the stem and attached the Knot My Designs tag.

You can add tassel or leaves or pom-pom or leave at that.

¹Bobble Stitch: [Chain 4, DC from the 3rd chain from the hook keeping the last loop on the hook, 4 DC in the same chain keeping the last loop on the hook (In total there will be 5 loops on the hook= original loop and partial DC). Slip Stitch on all the loops and slip stitch on the last chain to a Bobble Stitch].

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • String length: 9″
  • Flower diameter: 3″

The sizes can be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads, tassel at the end of the bookmark
  • You can remove the string and attach a paper clip for bookmark or Hair Clip for making a hair accessory.
  • Or paste it on your wrapped item to make an interesting wrapping gift.
  • You can add your tag.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegant simplicity!!
