Choc Top Lollipop - Sweet Treats CAL chart

 Welcome to Week 9 of the Sweet Treats CAL.  -  a c2c blanket made up of squares featuring the designers' favourite treats! 

If you haven't seen the CAL so far, you can catch up over on our host's blog post at the stardust gold crochet blog. Click the pink banner below. A BIG thank you to Tasha who has put this whole blog hop together and all the other designers who made this possible. 

My chosen treat is a lollipop! I can't really say there was a specific reason I chose it: the idea was fully formed minutes after I heard that Tasha was looking for designers. I was very keen to join in with a bright, pop art-inspired image. 

This pattern is a chart only, and the blanket uses the mini c2c technique. However, as a chart, you can get creative and change the technique if you so choose! Keep scrolling for the chart!

If you would like the very detailed written instructions, along with all the other patterns, there is an option to purchase the eBook. Click below to be taken to my affiliate link. 

The CAL is sponsored by Wecrochet, and the yarn used is Brava Worsted.

My colours are Rouge, White, Sienna and Marina

The suggested hook size for this project is 5mm, but use whatever size gives you your ideal drape. 

And one more thing, if you would like to download a copy of the chart as a PDF, I have added one to my Ravelry Store. Please remember this is a chart only. The chart will remain here in this blog post, so downloading isn't essential, I just wanted to offer the option. Click the pink banner below to be taken to my Ravelry store to download the chart.

For more help and information, and links to the other squares in the CAL, please refer to Stardust crochet's post. 

I really hope you enjoy this pattern as much as I enjoyed designing it! 

Happy Crocheting,

Sweet Treats CAL & Blog Hop

 Welcome - my first post of 2022 - and I have an announcement for you! Starting very soon is the Sweet Treats CAL & Blog Hop!

>>Hosted by Stardust Gold Crochet - you can get all the information here<<

And Sponsored by We Crochet


The blanket is going to be made up of C2C squares, and a free chart will be provided each week. However, if you've never tried C2C before and want to give it a go, then it may be worth investing in the eBook, which is incredibly detailed and takes you through a full stitch tutorial, as well as written instructions. The eBook contains all the patterns and charts if you don't want to wait!

By purchasing through the above affiliate link, I will earn a commission.

If you follow me on Instagram, you'll have seen a sneak peek at my square of the blanket! A Lollipop! All the squares are bright and fun, and you'll soon have a blanket that's perfect for the young, and young at heart.

The CAL begins very soon - I'll keep you up to date!

Happy Crocheting, and Happy 2022

I've been slowly updating the blog in small ways this month.

I'm hoping that it is more accessible to those who struggle reading on a screen, by changing the background to white, and a font change. If it causes any issues, this is something I would love to know about.

I have added a few links in the bar at the top of the blog, and some of those are works in progress. There are a couple of ways to help support the blog - which you can find in the 'support me' section. Some are free, like sharing a free pattern online, or  signing up as a pattern tester, but a couple of ways to support by making a purchase.

I'll have a free pattern available in early February, right here on the blog, and currently have a Valentine's day special running on the Hug cushion (pictured above) You can grab the pattern, no code necessary, by clicking here

If you would like to get the pattern AND all the yarn to make it, you can on LoveCrochet. Two of the colours have been discontinued, but I have added substitutes.

Thanks again for reading and your continued support!

Crochet Hearts and Hugs - Pattern Round up!

Did you know my first crochet blog was called 'How to Crochet a Heart'? I had quite a few heart patterns, and they still remain close to.. my .. heart!

Today.. In time for Valentine's Day, I'm sharing a few of my favourite heart themed patterns. Click the pattern name to get to the pattern site.

This is my newest pattern - a cushion cover with a patchwork heart. Made with paintbox yarns, this is currently avaliable on the LoveCrochet site. 

A gorgeous heart, with a floral centre, by Vivid Kreations.

Keep your hands warm (while you crochet!)

A compass rose; let those travelling know your thinking of them. 

This sweet granny square themed heart is By Jennifer from Crochet to Play. I imagine this would make some fabulous rustic wedding decor.

A free pattern on this blog!

If you do make one of these crochet heart patterns, please let me know! You can add a project on Ravelry, or tag us on Instagram!
