Hip to be Square CAL – Week 1


Hello and welcome to the first Week of the Hip to be Square Crochet Along! I am so excited to share this project with all of you. I hope you enjoy making this blanket!

Not too long ago I shared the pattern for a crocheted square I had created. I called it the Treble Starburst Square because of the shape in the center. I knew I wanted to create something using that square but at the time could not decide what in the world that might be. I set it aside for a little while so I could finish a few customer orders, and one day the idea came to me! I knew it would be a great accent in a blanket made with a few different types of squares.

Square Crochet Along – Details

Hello again!

I have had a few questions regarding the upcoming Hip to be Square Crochet Along. I wanted to write up a quick post to further explain the details of how this will work!

This blanket will be made of 36 squares in total, in a 6×6 grid. I ran a poll in the Couch Surfer Crocheters Facebook group to determine how to share the squares each week. I didn’t know if you all would rather grow your blankets row by row (doing a few different types of squares each week), or if you’d want to do all of one type of square at the same time. The vast majority of you voted to do all of ONE type of square for each week.

Free Crochet Pattern

Today I want to share with you a new pattern I devised. I wanted to try a different shape than I had done before, so I tried to think of a way to do that. I came up with this cute pattern, the Twelve Point Star Blanket. It is worked in the round, and uses the chevron style to create the points.

Three Color Baby Blanket Pattern

Oh my gosh you guys, I am so excited! I just found out one of my oldest friends is expecting her second baby! She already has a gorgeous little girl that I love so much! This time she is having a boy! When she had her daughter I made a blanket for her crib, so I knew I wanted to do the same thing for her son!

Her husband is in the military, so I wanted to choose colors that tied into that. I thought tan, navy, and green would look very nice together. I chose to use Soft Taupe, Soft Navy, and Forest.

Color Inspiration for Summer

Summer is definitely in full swing here in Tennessee! It’s been crazy hot and humid lately! Once it’s over 90 degrees I want to be near a pool and that is all! We got a bit of a break today with some pop up rain showers, which has helped cool it off considerably.

Feeling the heat did give me a bit of inspiration, though! I realized that there are some great color combinations that you can get from “summery” things! I wanted to share with you a few of the photos that have inspired me to create a few summertime color palettes.

Below each photo I have linked the closest yarn color I could find to match these photos. I hope they inspire you to create something wonderful!

 


These sea shells truly show all the amazing colors you can find near the ocean! I think this color pattern would be fun for a summery project!
