Crochet Talk | May – August 2020

Hello and welcome to a post where I share a few of my most recent crochet projects. In the past I have shared quite a few updates on my projects, my most recent being my post Crochet Talk | April 2020. Since then, I have been working on a few larger projects and some fun ones that were challenging and new to me. While there were some frustrations, I had a lot of fun and I think has really helped me get better. Anyway, here are my most recently completed projects!

This is a scarf inspired by Victorian lace. I used a pattern created by LesiaLittleAdventure on etsy called Victorian Lace High Collar Crochet Pattern. I have never created anything that had such an intriquet pattern and where you can really notice a mistake. Thankfully I did well and I was able to gift this to a dear friend. I plan on making myself one in green, but I have a few things I need to get done soon.

Here is my completed temperature blanket I made for June 2019-May 2020, but I fell far behind and actually finished it on August 20th, 2020. While it took a huge amount of time, so much so that I was about to give up sewing in all the color changes, I really love how it came out!

I also made a sunflower bag, based this off of the pattern SWEET SUMMER SUNFLOWER BAG by Crochet 365 Knit Too. It was fun to make since I never made granny squares before. Between learning how to make the sunburst granny square I also had to work on sewing them all together. While it was challenging, I adore how it came out.

What have you be doing to pass the time as of late?

  1. Oh my goodness that bag is beyond adorable!! I’ve never crocheted but I started knitting for the first time in July and it’s been such a learning curve – I tried to knit a blanket and it’s taking me literally forever haha

    1. Thanks so much! Knitting is fun too, I used to knit all the time. Blankets are always long haul projects, I tend to go back and forth between working on a blanket and a smaller project so I feel more productive. Are you following a pattern for your blanket?

      1. I’m just knitting squares and then I’m going attach them because that way I get little bursts of accomplishment each time I finish a square. It still takes forever though haha

  2. Weaving in ends on a multi-colour crochet blanket is such a huge undertaking. If I can’t crochet them in, I always try to do them as I go along or after a set number of rows otherwise I’m sat there for ages sorting them all out at the end and I find it such a tedious process. I’ve crocheted two blankets (a multi-colour granny stripe from a kit my sister gifted me for my birthday, and a second Nature’s Walk blanket by Cherry Heart designs) and I knitted quite a large triangular shawl.

    As if more crochet and knitting projects haven’t crossed my lap since (I’m still working on a jumper I started months ago), I’ve also just started learning how to do tapestries. This will be a learning curve, especially as I keep falling out with my mother’s tapestry frame, but I am finding it rather enjoyable so far.

    1. It really is a long process, when I started the blanket over a year ago I didn’t know how to crochet them in as I went, but thankfully I do now! It is a game changer for sure.

      I have been wanting to try to crochet a shawl, but I am looking for a good pattern, do you know of one?

      I am planning a tapestry after I finish some gifts, I am planning to do a moon phases one that I fell in love with. I already have all the supplies.

      Best of luck with your projects!


      1. For shawl patterns, a good and quick one is a granny stripe shawl but if you want something different or slightly more challenging you can look for good patterns on LoveCrafts. I know quite a few designers are making sure their patterns are uploaded onto there because many people, myself included, are having issues with Ravelry which is where I used to find all my patterns.

  3. I love the temperature blanket! Working on these types of projects (crocheting, sewing, etc) is so relaxing šŸ™‚
    For this autumn I plan to make a patchwork blanket – it will be only my second one šŸ™‚ And I also want to re-learn knitting – I used to knit when I was a child, many years ago. I hope it will be easier to re-learn than to learn from scratch.
