Time For Something Summery: Crochet Granny Stitch Triangle Ladybird Bunting Pattern

I’ve had crochet bunting on my ideas lists for a while now but haven’t had the chance to get started with any – the list os just too long!.

Last week I saw some ladybirds scurrying about on some leaves and an idea came to mind to make some ladybird themed bunting.

I decided to do the bunting in the colour of the leaves and have some little ladybirds sat on them.

This pattern is available free on Patreon for my Patreon members this month along with lots of other patterns.

How To: Crab Stitch/Reverse Single Crochet

This stitch is perfect for edging projects, and the added bonus to it looking great is it also makes the edges more study to making your projects last even longer.

The stitch itself is a single crochet (sc) stitch, the only difference is you actually work it in the other direction and complete the stitches going the opposite way around the row/round.  This sounds tricky I know (it had me in a complete mess when I first tried it!), but once you get going with this you will have the hang of it in no time.  

Once you have completed the row/round previously you are ready to start on the row/round of Crab stitch/Reverse single crochet. 

  1. To start, ch1 (picture 1).
  2. sc into the previous stitch:
    • Insert the hook into the stitch in the direction shown in the picture (pointing downwards) (picture 2 and 3). 
    • Yarn over (picture 4).
    • Pull up loop holding the hook in the same position as when you inserted it (2 loops on hook) (picture 5).
    • Yarn over (picture 6).
    • Pull through all loops on the hook (picture 7).
  3. Repeat (picture 8) until you have finished the row, and for a round (picture 9) complete a slip stitch into the top of the ch1 at the start of the round to complete (pictures 10 and 11).

Minecraft Corner To Corner Crochet Block Series: Part 6 – Emerald Ore Block Pattern

I started this emerald ore block alongside my previous magma block as I ran out of grey half way through making this! So while waiting to get some more I started and finished off the magma block!

Once I got some more grey I got back to finishing the emerald ore block off, and I think it is definitely up there as one of my favourites so far – I love the green details, and love the thought of them all being little green jewels waiting to be found.

Made using a 3.5mm hook and half treble (UK)/half double (US) corner to corner crochet (how to half treble(UK)/half double (US) corner to corner crochet is available here).

Once you have made the 6 sides sew the pieces together down the sides, you can use a piece of foam or stuffing to fill the cube.  If using a cube sew the pieces together around it, if your using stuffing sew all the sides together but leave a 10cm gap so you can then put the stuffing in then sew the gap closed.

Minecraft Corner To Corner Crochet Block Series: Part 5 – Magma Block Pattern

I can’t believe I’m on to block 5 already – I’ve kind of got a bit carried away and stopped all other projects while doing these! I might need to slow down a bit so I can finish off some of my other half completed projects.

Following on from the Redstone Ore block is a magma block – seeing some orange wool in my stash prompted me to do the magma cube next.

This is the same size (17x17x17 cm) as the other blocks and I used half treble (UK)/half doubles (US) corner to corner crochet with a 3.5mm hook. How to half treble(UK)/half double (US) corner to corner crochet is available here.

Corner To Corner Crochet Minecraft Block Blanket Pattern: Blocks 1-3 (TNT, Chest, Diamond Ore)

While making my first two corner to corner Minecraft blocks (TNT and Chest blocks) I was sat looking at all the side pieces laid out and that gave me another make idea (not that I really need any more WIPs on the go…), this idea was to make a Minecraft themed blanket to show the fronts of all the blocks I have made. All I need to do for this is make one extra front side of each of the blocks and then put them all together to get my finished blanket.

I might a border once I’m done but I will wait until I’ve got a few more joined together until I decide. To join the blocks I just placed them right sides together and sewed down the side, so far I’ve got 3 of the blocks joined and hopefully it won’t be too long until I have a few more to add to it.

Minecraft Corner To Corner Crochet Block Series: Part 4 – Redstone Ore Block Pattern

Following on from my Diamond ore block I decided to keep with the ore theme and opted to make a redstone ore next!.

This is quite similar to the diamond ore, but I think this and the diamond ore will look really good together. I have already got the next block started too – this will be a magma block and I cant wait to share it!.

Made using a 3.5mm hook, and using half treble(UK)/half double(US) corner to corner crochet (Guide on half treble(UK)/half double corner to corner crochet available here).

Once you have made the 6 sides sew the pieces together down the sides, you can use a piece of foam or stuffing to fill the cube.  If using a cube sew the pieces together around it, if your using stuffing sew all the sides together but leave a 10cm gap so you can then put the stuffing in then sew the gap closed.
