The other day (after I had finished my latest pattern), I took my ever growing stash of yarn, and one of my Japanese craft book which I had treated myself for Christmas and make this pillow cover. I didn’t finished it yet, I just made the crochet side of the cover, but hope I will put it together soon.
The pattern for the flowery granny square I found in this Japanese crochet book (which I bought in this fabulous shop).
This is actually the pattern for the blanket from the cover. I just omitted the last two rows from the pattern, and joined them together with single crochet. I absolutely adore Japanese crochet books. They are packed with so much beauty!
I really like how it turned out, can’t wait to finish the pillow!
I must admit that I fell in love with these flowers, I’m already working on the second pillow with the same pattern, and I seriously thinking about making a blanket with some rich, lacy edge… I can imagine myself wrapped in that beauty (in a few months) with a cup of coffee and some exciting new project on the hook…
In my next post I will show you what else I have been making these days…
It’s been a long time since my last post. I didn’t neglect my blog on purpose. I just was so busy. Busy making my first pdf pattern and tutorial. There were so many things I had to do and learn. Take and process photos, learn how to write pattern in Word, write the pattern, check out and test the pattern…
And finally, my very first pdf pattern for this flowery granny square cushion is finished and available in Dada’s place shop (payment options: credit card and Pay Pal)
The tutorial is very detailed (it is written on 18 pages with more then 100 photographs!)and I think that even beginners can use it.
This step by step tutorial includes instruction on how to:
* make a granny square
* join granny squares
* make a border
* make an inner cushion
* make a cushion case
This pattern is written in standard American crochet terms.
I want to thank my friend Sandra for reviewing this tutorial. Sandra is an English teacher and my dear friend. So, Sandra, hvala ti do neba! (thank you so much!)
These are my newest granny squares. I’m currently working on the pattern and tutorial (step-by-step with many pictures)
Actually, I’m making a tutorial for the pillow. I will explain how to make a granny square, how to join them, how to make a border, and finally, how to make a pillow.
I will show how to add fabric (with an inserted zipper) on the back side. It will be very, very detailed tutorial. And hope It will be in my Etsy shop soon.
