Daisy Flowers Crochet Afghan

It has been my goal to crochet a granny square blanket ever since I started by crocheting. I have been searching for the pattern by browsing through books, pinterest and the internet to find the ideal design. Finally, I decided to do the Daisy Flower pattern.

I used the 4 Seasons Marvel Soft 8 ply yarns for this project. It was my first project using soft acrylic threads and I love the softness of it.

I picked 4 colours - purple, turquoise, yellow and navy for the borders of each squares. There were 14 squares per colour to make up a total of 56. I used white colour to join them up as border.


After joining up the squares, I made border for the whole afghan. Here is a complete view of the blanket. :)

Japanese Lace Doily

I wanted to take a short break from crocheting blankets. But I couldn't stop crocheting altogether. So I decided to do small projects and picked up my hook to make a table top doily from a Japanese lace pattern book.

I used 4ply 100% mercerised cotton thread for this doily and the size is about 19cm wide. This is listed in my etsy shop. Click here if you would like to purchase for your home use or gift for your friend.
