Crochet Circles Texture Cushion Pattern: ‘Round In Circles’

Going round and round in circles with a ‘Round In Circles’ cushion

I really love my ‘Round In Circles’ blanket and wanted to make something else with the same stitch. After a little bit of thinking I started on making a cushion to go with my ‘Going Wavy’ cushion as I knew they would look really good together, especially with them both using the same colours.

I think this stitch gives a really good texture, and have a few more ideas in mind of some projects it would work great with – keep an eye out for some in the future!

Pattern for this cushion is now available on my Etsy and Ravelry shops.

Crochet Circles Texture ‘Round In Circles’ Blanket Pattern

Time for more texture with a few crochet circles: ’round in circles’ blanket

After finishing my textured ‘Going Wavy’ blanket and cushion I decided to continue on the textured stitch path and after a while of trying out some different stitches and effects they gave I came across one which I could make a circle with. I really liked the circle effect and started making a blanket with it, it took quite a few attempts (and looks of undoing!) before I got the first few rows to look how I wanted but I finally got the circles laying in an order and position I liked and could continue with the rest of the blanket.

I liked the colour combination of the Going Wavy blanket and decided to use the same colours but swap them around so the main blanket was grey rather than purple and the border purple rather than grey.

I’m really happy with how it’s turned out and I’m glad I’ve stuck on the textured effects path – I have a few more ideas which will gradually appear over the next few months!

The pattern for this is available over on my Etsy and Ravelry shops.

Crochet Wavy Stitch Textured Cushion Pattern: Going Wavy Again

I loved the texture the of the wavy stitches on my ‘Going Wavy’ blanket and decided to make a matching cushion. I wasn’t sure whether I should go for the same colour or try it in a different colour but I really liked the purple and greg combination I had used on the blanket so used it again! I will definitely be making some more of these soon – in different colours next time too!

Crochet Ladybird Storage Baskets Pattern

Flying by are some ladybird crochet storage baskets

Whenever I’m halfway through a set of crochet storage baskets I always seem to get an idea for the next set, and halfway through my summer storage baskets the idea to make some ladybird themed storage baskets came to mind. I got started on these not long after fishing my summer storage baskets but they have been sat in my work in progress bag making very little progress since then.

To be honest I had almost forgot they needed finishing until I was looking at all my half finished projects and saw them in there. I decided it was about time I got them finished and so set about getting them completed and now I have three completed storage ladybirds! Also on clue I now have my next basket idea!

Pattern for this is now available on my Etsy and Ravelry shops.

Crochet Wavy Stitch Textured Blanket Pattern

Time to go a bit wavy, with a textured crochet blanket

I’ve been working on a blanket for a while now, it’s taken me so long to get it finished because I couldn’t quite decide on the pattern and each time I started I wasn’t too sure whether it was going to be too wavy. After a number of restarts and pattern changes I decided to stop over thinking it and just go with the original pattern idea I had.

I was still worried about my decision until I got about a quarter of the way through the blanket and I saw the effect of all the waves together and I knew I had done the right thing.

With all the waves on this blanket it has a really textured feel and it is really warm and cosy. Blanket size is 98x98cm.

There was only one name I could call this blanket – introducing ‘going wavy’!. Pattern is available over on my Etsy and Ravelry shops.

Crochet Corner To Corner Bee Cushion – Adding Fabric Backing Tutorial

Another Bee Cushion Is Buzzing It’s Way From The Craft Pile

I wanted to make another Buzzing Around Corner to Corner Crochet Cushion but rather than just having the same matching front and back I decided to put a fabric back onto the crochet front piece.

Pattern for this cushion is now available on my Etsy and Ravelry shops.

Fabric Cushion Back Tutorial:

After having a look in my stash I found some fabric which couldn’t have been more suitable – some bee patterned fabric by The Craft Cotton Company.

  • Using two different colours I cut two pieces 38x40cm and folded them in half to give me two back pieces.
  • To create the back I laid these two pieces down on the right side of the crochet front and overlapped them slightly.
  • By sewing the whole way around the edge of the cushion this secured the front and back together.
