April Inspiration

Good Morning everyone!!!!
I am super excited to tell you about the next 30 days here at Crochet Chiq! I am been watching #moodblanket posts on my twitter and instagram feed and I have been inspired, For those that don't know mood blankets are made by crocheting 1 square a day depending on you mood and at the end of the year you have an awesome blanket!!! 

I want to do something quicker than that :) I am going to be making 6-7 inch squares Monday-Saturday this month and then add an edging and joining on Sundays! I will be using colors in Lion Brand's Vanna's Choice line. I will use all sorts of hook sizes to get which ever stitch to the size I need. I also want to do more of a inspiration type square for example below is a photo of my first day's square
When my boyfriend wanted to go out for pasta I knew I had these exact shades!

I will link every square to this post and I will be posting daily! Are you excited? Do you want to crochet your own #aprilinspiration blanket?

Cross Bangle

I wanted to crochet a sideways cross bracelet for some time now but it wasn't until I received this lovely STARDUST( by Red Heart yarn ) that I actually sat down to make it!  This project will fly by you will want to make one for everyone at church :)

Stardust - any color you like I used #1303 Brown * this requires very little yarn, so make a lot!*
E crochet hook

Skill - Advanced Beginner
(* HINT this is basically a vertical row or a shell*)
First stitch***
Ch3, hdc 3rd ch from hook, ch1, 2 hdc ( all in the same space)
Every other one***
*turn, slip stitch until you and in the ch1 space, ch2,1hdc,ch1,2hdc* repeat until you have the length desired, * it should stretch slightly to slide on and off your wrist.. **

suggested lengths _
Woman's s/m ~18 shells
l/xl ~20 shells
Mans~ 23 shells
child~ 11-15 ( 11 fits most five year olds)

sew the 2 ends together and weave in your tail at least 4 inches worth so it will not come undone.

***Add the cross part***

attach the yarn to the sid…

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.
