Stripey Blanket



This pattern was one I found on pinterest, and I loved the idea. Each row (or two or three) is a different color, and decorative stitches are thrown in along the way. As a throw blanket, it's fun and the perfect size, and the color choices are endless. Visit here and here to see the post.
I would make this blanket again, because it goes quickly, and I love double crochet!

Flower Afghan 
A pattern I came across that had the white flower edged with green, and then a pastel color as the border. I added, for my own design, another row of white, and a narrow row of that same pastel color. Then I added a few more rows of white to make the squares larger.
All of the stitches are double crochet, except for that narrow row of pastel, which is single crochet.
Also, I used a size H hook for all the rows, except for the white edging, which I used a G hook.
The flowers are a bit looser in the center, but the white border pulls it all in tighter, so it holds together better.
A scalloped edge was crocheted along the edge as the final stitch. And of all the scalloped edges I've crocheted, I like this one best: one stitch of the scallop per space on the blanket.
