Corner Squares and a Sheep.

Hi All.
This month I've been stuck on crochet, but I have knitted a little....
sheep that is.
My version of Shaun the Sheep was done for someone, who wanted a variation for Fester the Goat Cosy. I couldn't stop at the head & front legs so he became a whole sheep -

 
I'm still crocheting my blankie in between projects & secret celebration sessions.
I decided to crochet corner squares, fairly large at 19cm, because I'm lazy when it comes to joining them.
Instead of doing random colours I thought I'd do each square in a colour wash of the same colour.

Having only 6 different colour groups, I'll also do squares starting from dark to light as well & see how that goes.
I think I'll join them all on the angle, that way I'll have zigzaggy edges. I'll probably do some sort of ripple stitch (more ripple stitch) border around the outside.
Well that's the plan but it's bound to change, I might end up doing it completely different when I get it all together.
Thanks so much for visiting - Jen.

  2. Thanks miek, if I left off the black border I could put it together into several different quilt blocks couldn't I. That's why I love this square it's so versatile, but yes, I still have to put them together lol Jen.

    i have quilted for some years but my fingers hurt to much, but this is indeed a way to look at it again, i mean the grannys are done so now something else. thats what i liked about your ripple cosy too, its inspiring i thought of a lot of other things that i could make out of it.

    1. Hi Louise, no you're doing it right. Because I don't visit all the time lately,the posts go into moderation, it might be a few hours before I get to look at the posts. When I get time I'll look for the pattern for the blanket square and send it to you. The Shaun Sheep was a one off request, but because Shaun Sheep is a licensed item, I don't think I'm allowed to circulate a pattern of him so I can't help you there sorry - Jen.

  12. I'd really like to see your finished product... assembled. I've created a sort of rainbow almost-squares (more of an arc on the longer corner) and am stumped as to how I'm going to join them.

    1. If you send me your email address I'll send you the pattern for these crochet corner squares, they are square (as in the pic) and have a last round of black around them to finish each square. They are then joined the same as any crochet square by sewing or crocheting them together. My email address is in my profile.
      If you email me a pic of your squares, hopefully I'll be able to suggest a way of joining them, maybe you could join 4 together along the straight edges and then join each set of 4 just at the corner of the curved edge? :-)

    Hi Jen while searching for a cat tea cosy pattern I found a beautiful sleeping cat cosy that was made by you, but can find no sign of it on your Blog spot. Do you still have the pattern and would you be able to let me have it? Thank you (in anticipation!)

  28. I would like to have the light to dark square pattern if you could send it. I was wondering if this could just be continued and have a big squarer as for a baby blanket or a throw. Do you think that would work?
