This rectangular cushion crochet project from Kate Eastwood's new book 'Crocheted Home' is worked in alpine stitch, to match the textured lap blanket. The cushion is finished with a pompom at each corner as a fun touch and to keep it co-ordinating with the blanket.
This is a very easy stitch fromCrocheted Hats and Scarves, but it takes some concentration because the stitches are hard to see. The yarn is thick and soft so, even though it’s a wide scarf, it scrunches around the neck very cosily.
From the first car journey to an outing in a buggy, a knitted blanket will accompany a baby wherever they go. In this bright geometric design, the repeating pattern of increases and decreases worked in playful stripes creates a striking chevron motif afghan from 35 Knitted Baby Blankets by Laura Strutt.
These cute animal mini blankets from Colour Block Knits are all the rage in the baby world. One ball of Bernat Softee Baby Stripes makes three blankies and three heads, but only just—you'll use up every scrap of yarn. If you run out of yarn the heads can easily be made using small amounts from your yarn stash.
These simple crochet projects will make beautiful gifts for loved ones or simply add a splash of colour to your home. From this birthday wreath small enough to post to this beautiful crochet blanket, these projects are for crafters of every level.
