After a week of feeling bleh due to my allergies, I thought it was high time to get back into the swing of things here and get blog posting !
Today I want to share a pattern for a scarf that I designed for my grandson Aiden…which I call the Aiden scarf. (Makes sense huh?) 🙂
First I have to show off Aiden (grandmothers have to do this..you understand !)…he is shown here with his daddy, my son Alex…
And now to the scarf I designed for my sweet baby…………..
This scarf features some very rich texture and the appearance of embedded stripes. The pattern is as follows :

From an Italian blog Daniela Cerri this free form crochet room divider/screen. Wow lots of work done in that ! From what I can gather from the translation (I don’t read Italian) the author did it herself. KUDOS for the work.
Its that time of the week again………….WIP WEDNESDAY…. !!
Well I totally shifted gears from what I was doing last week. (Big surprise for me LOL) I decided to start working up some winter sets for the grand kids, in between doing a blanket for my grandson Aiden. I have to have something to break up doing a blanket because I find it hard to sit and do it all at once…….
So first…for my grandson Aiden:
Making stripes in the round is such a challenge. Whether it is a hat or armigurumi, you want your piece to look nice on all sides…not just the front. This used to make me totally curse because I am a perfectionist by nature and this just was not going to do.

Pattern Multiples are your friend !
Recently in a crochet forum someone was asking a question about how to figure out pattern multiples. They wanted to take a bigger sized blanket and make it into a smaller sized one and was trying to figure out how to find the starting chain number.
While I was posting through that and explaining to her how to find the pattern multiple (which will tell you the starting chain amount), I thought it would make a good blog post….
Often in patterns you might see something like this… chain in a multiple of 6 +2. What is this and why do it? How in the world do they find this number?
