How To Stop A Granny Square From Slanting

Today's post is about how to stop a granny square from slanting... We have all been there, you get really excited about doing a granny square blanket because its nice and easy and you get to about row 15 and then you look at your masterpiece and you think something looks a bit off, is it slanting you ask yourself, noooo it cant be you think, you carry on anyway and think it will sort itself out, by row 35 you lay it down flat again to look and now its looking not so nice and you are wishing you never started it! Or maybe you are one of the lucky ones and have read this post before you started your blanket because you hear those darn granny square blankets slant hehe!!

Mini Kids Swirling Pocket Sweater - Free Crochet Pattern

This cute mini kids sweater pattern is perfect for the coming holidays and especially with this cold weather, it also makes a perfect present for other little ones too! For this crochet pattern i used Stylecraft special aran in the colour Magenta (one of my favourite colours from the Stylecraft special aran range) and it works up very quick!


This sweater is so easy to make, i designed the body of the sweater to be worked flat and then joined together, then add the arms in the round. Sometimes i find it alot easier to design something flat then join it together like a sweater and i think you prefer it that way too, when working in the round on a larger item you can lose your place like when it comes to skipping stitches for the arm holes etc.

Hello friends! Today's crochet pattern is this super chunky mini kids flower hat, i really enjoyed designing this cute hat but i will be honest i am not 100% sure on the flower, just because of the thickness of it, it turned out rather large but still i kept on incase anyone else liked it, what do you think, is the flower a hit or a miss?

I love making baby blankets, i love when you can easily remember all the row repeats and you can then just knit anywhere on the go - this makes me very happy! This easy baby blanket pattern only uses two stitches, knit and purl, so if you know how to do those you are basically good to go!

This baby blanket is perfect for beginners and very easy for the more advanced and what's good about this blanket is that it can also be used for toddlers too and great for boy or girls.
