My favorite blanket I am working on is this baby one featuring  the new Annes Geddes baby yarn!

This is the star stitch pattern 

Another unfinished blanket I have it the wave one! Anyone else start one and then get excited about other projects???

Here are some of my favorite hats I have made that are not from patterns here on crochet chiq! Some I made up and the star stitch ones are from The Crochet Geek

The first hat I ever tried to make with out a pattern and just looking at a picture!

These hats took forever but I loved making them!

I made this 3 years ago for my sons 1st birthday!

Thread Cross Bookmark

I used Aunt Lydia's Crochet thread and a size D hook. Make a magic circle Round 1 Ch3, 2dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2 and join. Sides and top of cross Ch3 2dc, ch2, dc3 in any ch2 sp. Turn and *sl to ch2, ch3,2dc, ch2,3dc. *Turn and repeat * repeat everything in this step 3 more times. Cut thread and weave in ends at the ends of the sides. Bottom of the cross When you get to the last side repeat the * section 2 more times for a total of 4 shells for the bottom and 2 shells for the sides not including the center. On the top of the cross attach yarn and chain 26, skip the first 5 and sl to the first chain. Then I added a tassel. If thread isn't your thing check out this great bookmark Stitch 11 made from my Cross Bangle pattern! Check out the Stitch 11 post here
