Our sympathies and thoughts are with daisydotandgertie, who lost her husband this month.
Woolly Hugs is now in action and this is the support and chat thread at which all are welcome - knitters, crocheters and donors. If you are a first time crafter please do have a go. There is bags of support and plain squares are just as important to our endeavour as fancy ones.
As flowers was one of the requested motifs, I'll just note there's a flowers section in the crafting guide. I might try the posies pattern on this sock pattern. For Welsh (or at least Celtic) patterns, I did this for a previous blanket.
Just finished a square for daisy and one for trinity and realised there is actually 3 blankets on the go at the moment
So, I now have approx 14g of cashmerino left to use for a square for team survival, can anyone help me find a (simple) crochet pattern I might be able to squeeze out of 14g of wool considering my other two squares have eaten up the other 36g of my ball between them?
Or am I fighting a losing battle? Nowhere local to me stocks any of the wool we're using and I don't have the pennies to pay for delivery for another ball online this month sadly.
pistey has just pm'd me too, knotty, you are both fabulous.
Anything, anything at all. I don't have a pattern in mind so can fit what I do round whatever either of you have. What I have left is peacock blue, shade 19, of the cashmerino, so anything that tones in / contrasts with that!
If it's your first ever square Ernest, you're probably best off starting with a granny square, which starts in the centre and works out, so you just stop when it measures 6". I've never tried to crochet a plain back and forth square to be honest, but I haven't been doing it long.
