What to do! what to do!

Hi, a quick little post today.  I have been playing around with the crochet hook this week itching to start a new project.  I have finished my green jumper and will post some pictures next time.  I was browsing the internet and came across this pattern

I scribbled down a bit of the pattern, went away to try it - got in a mess and then couldn't remember where I had seen it in the first place :::::::: after several attempts I think I have cracked it.  It is groups of three trebles done in a "zig zag" way starting with one and increasing with each row and then decreasing until you are back to one! I have no idea if this is how the pattern intended, but it seems to have turned out alright.


This was an early attempt which looks more like squares - I like this too and have plans for this pattern.  But the prettiest way is this way

I can see a cushion or a bag in this pattern.

I have also done a swatch of the Granny Stripes that Lucy has done on her blog - I have lots of odd bits of stash left which would be good to use for a blanket

Head buzzing, I don't know what to start next!!!

Watch this space!

Speak soon xx


  1. I have the zig zag pattern too and haven't tried it yet but you've spurred me on as it looks great!!

  2. I totally get the head a buzzing. Surprise. I'm usually so full of ideas I can't get started.

    Love the Zig-Zag... New and fun. I'm always up for some new ripplie looking thing to try.

    Ok, so, yes, I know I need to go pick up my hook. Still peddling around today, but got the errands run.


  3. Kim the stitch is called Entrelac and you can find it online....
    I have a small blanket I made last year...once you figure it out it really is much easier than it looks, isn't it?

  4. Love the first one and I think a bag in lots of summery colours would be very useful.

  5. Know how you feel - too many ideas. I keep stopping, starting and frogging. It was easier before the internet, then it was only patterns and books ☺
    I love the top one too - another way too interesting idea - NO!!!! Brain is on overload ☺

  6. I love the diagonal pattern - the colours are so pretty!


  7. Yes I do too, love the diagonal pattern! Nice to try something different.
    Do have a good weekend Kim, and that goes for all your Followers too!
    Great post.
    Beautiful weather here in the UK, try and enjoy it...
    Hugs Suex

    hugs to you too
    Love Suex

  10. Great diagonal pettern Kim, I know what you mean about having so many ideas of things to make and not knowing which one to settle with! I'm off to the beach with a bag of wool, hope you have a lovelt weekend
