No. 91 – Turquoise cartwheel

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! This week is all about a turquoise cartwheel, comprising sixteen double-treble spokes, the rim re-enforced by a round of double crochet. The shaping happens in the 3rd row with the Lime green, then a round of trebles, finished off with a round of half-trebles in the Periwinkle… Read More »

No. 90 – Sewing up section 6

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! This week we’re edging and sewing together section 6 of the throw. I realised that my Square No. 89 isn’t going to fit in, so I had to unravel it and do it again, which I should have done in the first place (we live and learn).… Read More »

No. 89 – Purple filet

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! This week’s square is all purple, with some filet crochet stitches in the fourth round. I think I made a mistake on the 3rd round and have a few too many stitches down the side. I’m sure you’ll be able to avoid that pitfall, as I’ve generously… Read More »

No. 88 – Orange flower

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! This is a lovely bright square with an orange flower at its centre and a Periwinkle blue ring. The shaping action doesn’t happen until the fourth row with the Bright pink, where there are trebles in the corners and half-trebles down the sides. The corners are either… Read More »

No. 87 – Teal trebles

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! This is a lovely calming, single-colour square, after all the excitement of last weeks colour changing extravaganza. And it’s not just us that need a rest, when we come to put the whole throw together, we’ll need the foil of these plainer squares to show up the… Read More »

No. 86 – Blue flower granny

 Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! This square sneaks up on you as a straight-forward granny, with a 2-treble cluster flower at its centre, but no sooner do you get to the fourth round, than you realise all is not as it seems. We start off with a round of Turquoise and then… Read More »

No. 85 – Sunburst Yellow

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! This week’s square is all about the Sunshine Yellow. The central ring is surrounded by trebles separated by a single chain, first single trebles, then pairs of trebles, before the shaping happens in a slightly unconventional way. Here’s a short film of the making of Square 85.… Read More »

No. 84 – Two-colour fun

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! Why call this a two-colour square when there are clearly four colours,  I hear you cry? Well, yes there are four colours ‘altogether’, but there are also two colours in one round, the Lime Green and the Teal. The trick is to change colour at the end… Read More »

No. 83 – Turquoise filet

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! This week it’s all about Turquoise. Our square starts off as an innocent granny square, with a row of double crochets, then the fourth round is where the filet action starts. ‘Filet’ – think French, not like a fillet of fish – is a a kind of… Read More »

No. 82 – Narcissus square

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! So is it a narcissus, or does it remind you of half a clementine, with all those pips? Either way these spring colours are sure to give you a lift. The 3-treble clusters in the 3rd round make the white petals, while the Orange, Lime Green and… Read More »
