Crochet Block #2

Here is block #2 to crochet.
I’ll post the written pattern in a day or two if you can’t make out the chart.
I think I may make several categories for these blocks. So far the first 2 blocks are of a lacy fan look so these are part of the lacy fan block series. Once I figure out the next category, We’ll start that block category so we will have a whole different type of blanket.

*Again, these blocks are found free online somewhere. I’m not creating then. *
Onwards and crochet!

make your own crochet chart/patterns with download

So I stumbled across a pin on pinterest that was a link to a link for a download for a program to make your own crochet pattern charts. I eventually found it and downloaded it and except for being in another language, it is really good.I just played around a bit and figured out more or less what the essences of the program.

This is a screen print of the program,and an example of making a pattern.

Also here is a youtube video in Portuguese but turn the captions on and read along with watching what she does. I’m so stoked about finding this. I could never get my charts to look good enough like a printed chart. This is going to help like crazy.

Hope this helps you all as much as I hope it helps me!

Block #1 pattern – written out

Hi All! So it’s been a week since I posted Block # 1 and so I have crocheted it 2 times, each a bit different. Now mind you, these haven’t been block so they are just pulled back into a square for you to see the overall look.

block # 1

The first is the standard way when reading patterns when there are long chains and a stitch connecting those chain strips to do that stitch ( usually a slip stitch,{sl st}) into the previous row’s chain strips. Also for this for the clusters (cl), I went into the stitch between the previous row clusters. You can see that the clusters are not as nicely formed as in the second picture.

The second what I crocheted the block is to do a single crochet(sc) into the chain strips. Then for this block for the clusters, I crocheted the clusters around the space of the previous row clusters. You can see the difference in the look of the clusters in each picture.

Crochet Block #1

I’ve decided I want to start a block of the week/month. I love to crochet and I could always use more blankets. So I’m going to start crocheting a block I’ve found on the internet every week or every month depending on what I can get done. So here goes.

This is the first block that I will be completing. I hope you will join with my as I start this adventure of croching blocks to eventually have a crocheted mixed block blanket or multiple blankets. If you can follow along with the chart or I will try to decifer it and write out a pattern based on what I can see. Let’s get started.
