Taken from 200 crochet blocks by Jan Eaton and organized by the Little Room of Rachel see her blog here, we have been crocheting all these blocks together. The colour theme is Cottage Garden. Here are this weeks blocks.
In the book this is all pink. As it’s called Sunray I decided to do yellow instead. I used a 3.5 hook and it turned out exactly 6″ square.
Next is 87 Peony
I love Peonys so big and well full on, if you know what I mean. I used a 4.5 hook and had to omit the last 3 rounds as I had already reached the 6″ square. Don’t think it looses much by not having the extra pink rows on the end. In fact I like the way the flower dominates the square, just like peony commands space in the garden.
And finally 88 Edwardian Fancy
Done on a 3.5 hook and measuring exactly 6″ square. And if someone can tell me what is remotely Edwardian about this I would love to know.
Snow is predicted for this weekend so lots of crochet time. Yippee! But I would like to have some gardening time too….please
How’s everyone else doing. And if you fancy joining in people are joining the group all the time- hop over to Rachel’s little room.
