Here are a few projects for the "home" that were finished in 2013.
1) Crocheted Cushions
I made a total of 4 cushion covers for my mom.
The pink/burgundy yarn was from 10 years ago and the neutrals were newly purchased. They are all “Patons Canadiana” but I can feel the difference between the yarns. Old yarn feels more rough and thicker, creating a more sturdy fabric while the new yarn is very soft!
It's a variation on a theme:
- All the fronts = 9 clock granny square
- Backs of 2 cushions = crocheted a giant granny square with rounds of alternating pinks.
- Backs of 2 cushions = granny stripes in alternating pinks and camel.
I only have pics of the front for now.
2) Crocheted Laundry Bag
The pattern was free from Purl Soho.
I had 2 HUGE skeins of Bernat Cotton so I made a HUGE bag. There is still over 600 yards of yarn left!! The yarn has flecks of color in it, but I noticed that most flecks disappeared after a good wash.
I started this back in 2005 but never got around to finishing until now. It's from a Patons pattern (?). I wish I still had the pattern - it would have been nice to make 2 of these...
