A friend of mine has a lovely bedroom she’s doing in shades of pink and red with lace and frills – a Victorian style room according to her. Anyway, she commissioned me to create something to drape over the end of her bed, not a full blanket, more like a quarter of one. She gave me some bulky baby pink yarn to work with at the beginning and gave me the red yarn for roses when the main piece was nearly done.
The baby pink part was designed by me without a pattern. I just winged it with some simple yet lacy looking so it would go with the rest of the room. It took 12 skeins of yarn because the skeins weren’t that big, and the yarn is bulky. I got the rose pattern from Cre8tioncrochet.com. Fair warning: Her pages are loaded with animated ads which could eat up your temp memory while you’re trying to work up the pattern. I made 8 roses with one skein of yarn, and the roses are about 3 inches wide, roughly.
That is my futon in my livingroom it’s draped across. My friend’s bed is a queen size, and the edges only drape over the sides about 4 inches – if that. I didn’t measure the piece before I made it or before I posted this, sorry. I know it’s 240 stitches across with a J hook and size 3 yarn. 🙂
Since I’m moving to 12 hour shifts tomorrow (Monday) night, I won’t be getting any of my other projects done in the near future – except maybe the body pillow I’m working on. I just need to do a little sewing. Other than that, the others will take time to get done. I hope you all can wait.
See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!!
