Here are three of my latest rugs.
#82 - Watermelon, pale pink and whiteThis one you'll know from my banner, except instead of using a red, this one has 'watermelon', which softens it slightly. It's #82 from the Big Book of Dishcloths.
I like the change in boarder I did for this one, no scallops or shells, I did a row of the posts in watermelon, and then a double crochet in pink and single crochet in white. I think it brought it together really well.
I did have a lady ask me if I could make a pink rug on my Facebook page, but I think the payment was an issue, as she was in the UK, and I don't have an Etsy store or anything.
I'm sure it will go to a good home.
Kitten PatternThis is a pattern called 'kittens' that was given to my mum by one of her friends. Personally I can't see the kitten in it, but it crochet's up quite quickly and looks really effective. I'm looking at making a yellow, fawn and white version too, you'll get to see that later.
Venetian Granny SquareThis rug is from some leftover balls of wool I had, using a granny square pattern called "Venetian" from the Granny Square Book by Margaret Hubert. I thought using all venetian squares may have looked a bit overwhelming, so I made some plain squares as well, and I think it turned out really well. I'm still not perfect on joining them, and it was probably because the plain squares and the venetian squares were probably not completely the same size, but it works.
I like the boarder, which brings it together nicely.
