Five on Friday - Five Crochet Projects

Friday, May 13, 2016

Hello friends, it's been a while since I've done a Five on Friday post, and anything to do with crocheting.  Today I'd love to share with you five different crochet projects I made over the winter.

Below is everything I crocheted, and all stacked up!




1)  I crocheted a lap blanket over the winter using three different skeins of yarn.  I made each section using light green, purple, and multi colored yarn, with each section using five rows.  To see the details on how to make one, you can click HERE and HERE.  I enjoyed crocheting this blanket during the cold winter evenings, while I was watching TV.




2) Below, I made this crocheted scarf using Red Heart variegated yarn.  The yarn is mixed with light brown, light pink and a darker pink shade.  The crochet hook is a US size I hook.  I made this using the half double crochet stitch.



3)  I crocheted the scarf below, using thick variegated, chunky yarn.  I used a US size J or K hook.  Using thick yarn and a large crochet hook works up fast, which I love.  I used the half double crochet stitch for this scarf.  This will keep someone very warm during the winter.



4)  This is a bright colored scarf I made for a little girl to wear.  The yarn is from Red Heart, and the crochet hook is a US size I.  I made this using the double crochet stitch, and I made a scalloped edging on both ends of the scarf.



5)  Finally, I made matching crocheted hand warmers to go with the scarf.  To make these hand warmers, you can click HERE for pattern that I designed.



Below you can see all of my crochet projects I made.  All of this has kept me busy during the winter evenings.  I also worked on everything each week, at my Tuesday crochet group meetings.



I really enjoyed working on all of these crochet projects.  I will also be donating it all to our holiday knit/crochet sale we have each fall at my church.

I hope I have inspired you to crochet a scarf, hand warmers, or a lap blanket.  :)



Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a lovely weekend!  :)

Don't forget to come back and stop by here on Monday for our 50th Cooking and Crafting with J & J Link Up Party!!  



I will be sharing at these Five on Friday series:

  5. They turned out beautifully. Have you ever thought of making some hats and blankets for your local NICU? We had people who made them for each baby that was in the NICU and I still have the two we received last year when my girls were there. So meaningful and heartfelt.

  6. You have been busy! What a colourful bunch of projects. I feel like picking up my hooks too to make something this big but that will have to wait because it gets too hot here to work with yarn during the summer months.

  27. I lost my mother in 2006. She was 84 & she loved to crochet. She taught me how when I was a little girl. Now granted Mom didn't really know how to make anything, but she just crocheted how she thought it should be made. Since then I crocheted a couple of different things how I thought they should be made too! Rugs, scarves is as far as I ventured, and then I would get shown how to make different things the right way. In fact, a lady on the train taught me this amazing stitch and I was able to make different designs now. Well, I found something of yours I think it was on facebook, and it's called a "Infinity Scarf", and that's why I'm here. I cannot seem to find it though :( , but I shall keep looking. Up until now I can make scarves, lap blankets, baby blankets, bed aprons, dresser scarves, and one year I made my daughters scarves, and their daughters a matching one, and my granddaughter's doll a matching scarf. It was for Christmas and it was a big hit. Oh and Gramma got a matching one too :) . Anyway, have a nice day.. I'm following all your social sites that I can find now. Very nice to meet you and have a great weekend. :)
